Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rawnie Great Product great price!
My dad bought this generator for me as a house warming gift in case of power outages caused by hurricanes and winter storms (living in East Pennsylvania) Havent used it too much, but got the optional battery with it and it fires up every time! right away! I recommend getting a trickle charger for the battery. We went to Home Depot and got the Ridgid 25 foot 30 amp cord, the adapter to 20 amp and a 25 foot 20 amp cord with regular 15 amps coming off it as well as 12 guage standard cords (cost over $200) but will be ready for the next storm!!!!!!! next im going to get a 100 lb propane tank insted of using the smaller 20 lbs.

Two days after I had 200A service and a bus transfer switch installed with an 220V outlet for the generator added to the outside of the house. Hurrican Sandy hit and I lost power for 2-1/2 days. I ran the generator continuously for the entire time, except for tank changes and after I purchased a 40lb tank, I could run continuously for 24 hours. Since I live in a rural area, the generator ran my well pump, furnane, refrigerator, lighting and my big screen TV and surround sound system.

ordered generator on line, picked up in store. Employees very professional and helpful. Got home and assembled the generator. Put oil in the engine, connected to LP tank and pulled twice. Generator started up and ran perfectly. Ordered battery. It came in. connected to terminals, hit the start button and the generator cranked right up. I have this connected to a manual switch box and it works exactly as designed. The LP gas feature is what attracted me to this generator. No worry about having the carburetor getting gummed with the ethanol fuel forced on us by the government. The only way to go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Killerbeez 7kw Propane generator
I haven't had to use it for a storm yet, but i have test fired it and used it to run a 220 air compressor a few times. Right out of the box, put the wheels, handle and oil in it and it ran without issues. I look forward to it being ready to run when I need it. Propane is a much better choice for devices like this due to it requiring no special storage because of the fuel going bad. Great price for a great tool.

Hooked up this Generator to the propane, hit the electric starter and it started immediately.
It put out a good steady 120/240 volts and made much less noise than the gas
generator it replaced. What more can you ask of a generator?

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BugGuyBob Really like the propane generators - got extended warranty
It was between this and the Generac propane - I thought the Generac might be a bit better made but the Sportsmans output is greater and the Sportman seems to run longer - many of you don't know and Home Depot really doesn't advertise that they have a three year protection plan for around $130 - that clinched it for me - I bought the Sportsman & the service plan - you go to your local Home Depot with your online purchase receipt as soon as you can and they will sell you the protection plan - they did not offer this plan on line and many don't even know it's an option - generator arrived on time and in good condition

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snowbound Works Great! Quieter than expected!
Bought this with the intention to make it easier for my wife in case she needed it and I were out of town. Night before Thanksgiving power went out in a snow storm, lots of damaged tree and downed lines. The generator was easy to hook up and keep fueled ( Propane ) without the danger of spilling gas on a hot generator. It ran for 4 days/nights .Its even quieter than we expected.

Since we're solely on solar power, we rely on our generator for gray days and for heavy duty power. This propane generator starts easily and reliably; provides plenty of power economically; and is less noisy than previous generators. A good buy.
