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 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 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Generator After reading the specifications on this generator, I felt that this would be a good upgrade from my current generator. I thought I would give it a try. It was delivered as promised. The carrier assisted me in moving the generator to the back yard without any question. The carrier made delivery easy. When I removed the generator from the box, I observed that everything was included. As I was installing the wheel kit, I noticed that I had one tire flat. In looking closely, I saw that the tube inside the wheel had shifted cutting the stem. I called the manufacturer and they sent a replacement immediately. No questions asked and I did not have to return the bad wheel. They were great to work with and offered further assistance if needed. I placed oil and non ethanol gas in the generator and tried the manual start. It fired on the first pull. I ran the carburetor dry then hooked up the battery. When I turned the gas on and hit electric start, the generator spun over once then fired right up. I am extremely pleased with ease of operation. My wife has no problem starting it. This is a good generator for the price. April 26, 2015
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator for the price Went together easy, basically just the mobility kit. Came with a twist lock plug, that was nice. Its not a quiet generator by any means but a 6000 watt electric start generator for $500 is unheard of. Its a no-frills unit, but that's all I really wanted. Weighs in around 175 lbs so you might need help loading it. I started and ran it for about an hour and a half with light to medium load and it ran flawlessly without skipping a beat. January 21, 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by best purchase of the year very good profuct and easy to use, I enjoy this product and alsos intend to use this when I go camping January 28, 2015
