Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 112 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy My old generator died so I looked around and glad I did. Home depot had the on I wanted. Key start large gas tank. Over all the best I generator I have owned. February 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy It was nothing to assemble, and after putting oil and gas in there, two pulls and it started right up. I still need to get a battery to use the electric start, but this is a monster, and I'm ready for the next black out. NEVER AGAIN WILL I HAVE TO DRINK WARM BEER !!!!!!!! September 20, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent generator that performes as promised The unit works without issues, Start very easy at first or second pull, or after 2-3 seconds using the electric start. Manual could be improved. The only item I really miss is an engine operation hour counter that would have helped changing the oil at the appropriate time as specified by the manufacturer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good. I have only had this for a short while. We bought it as a backup in case our power goes out. I should have read closer (as not to be a slight disappointed). The battery for electric start does not come with the generator. But, all in all, the instructions are easy enough. I was able to start it up without issue. And I did test it with supplying electricity to my 2 bedroom 1st floor apartment. Even with electric heat, it could still run under heavy load. Now lets hope I never need it for its intended purpose. But if I do, I have the confidence that it will get us through a blackout. January 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Power for our rural outages We recently moved and needed to run our well pump (230V) and sump pump along with a freezer and other small appliances. Sometimes the outages are prolonged around here and we're hoping this can get us through.The shipper called in a few days and delivery was within a week. Assembly took about a half hour and after oil / gas and two pulls of the cord all was up and running.The battery will happen ASAP but hopefully we won't be down on power any time soon.So far we are very pleased with this purchase but can't seem to find any spec. label or other info numbers on the unit for insurance files in event of theft--not even a serial #. All in all this unit should happily serve our needs. We will update this review after our first OUTAGE November 20, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7kw Gen There is some minor assembly required (wheels & handle) but it all come together fast. Instructions on how to assemble wheels and axles is almost non-existent but it is fairly obvious what needs to be done. I added the recommended oil and proper amount, added some gas, pulled the starter cord a few times and it was up and running. Verified 120.240V output with a meter and it's perfect. It's quieter than my lawn mower. The handle and wheels make it really easy to move. I haven't tested under load and that will have to wait until I get a long outage but I am confident that 6kw running will handle everything I need. All in all, I'm very pleased with the quality and value for the cost. December 25, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Electric start with now battery and no oil I trusted Home Depot to sell a quality product but was very surprised with what I got. I guess it's my own fault I didn't read close enough to know it did not come with a battery, but most electric starts DO come with the battery. I am having a horrible time finding the right battery for it. This is the first gas powered device I have ever purchased that did not come with a bottle of oil. Can you get any cheaper? Typical Chinese built piece of junk. I will be much more cautious with what I buy from Home Depot from now on. Buffalo tools are typically junk and I was not aware they were the manufacturer until I picked it up at the docks. By the way, after paying for shipping, I had to go pick it up because they could not get their semi down my road! April 12, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good product, good price It's hard to give a thorough review, we luckily haven't needed it yet. We did a test run and everything went great, ran it for an hour to test and no problems. One thing I am very happy about is the noise level. The write up on home depot states 80+ for decibles, I was worried about that but it seemed to be the only draw back to this generator. On the sportmans web it listed as 72 decibles and that is what the box states when delivered. December 7, 2011
