this unit arrived without damage. (the first unit had shipping damage and had to be returned)
When adding oil as required prior to starting, I had oil overflow well before adding the required amount. Called the mfger. and was told that the oil was probably not fully drained after factory checkout.
The unit started with one pull, ran fine, and had output in all receptacles. Loud but as expected.
Hope to never have to use it, but now ready for the next power outage.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by andy Would like to know how it runs!
I ordered the generator on line, so far I have received one that had damage to the generator itself so I returned it and had another one ordered. The second one came in with damage to the case of the motor so I returned it also. In both cases there was no damage to the box. The damage had to be done prior to the units being packaged at the factory. The third machine is on it's way now. We will see if it is damaged when I have the folks at Home Depot un-box it at the store, if it looks OK I will take it home and see how it runs.

I purchased this generator a couple of years ago, and finally!.... After Hurricane Matthew, I got my return on investment, and it was worth every penny! This generator has never had a drop of gasoline in the tank. I purchased this unit because it was the largest portable generator I could find, that ran on propane, and that is exactly what I wanted. No worries about gas going bad in the tank and gumming up the carb, nor did I have to worry about long-term gasoline storage issues, or running to the gas pumps like everyone else when the hurricane is approaching. Propane does not go bad. I've been stocking up on 20lb propane tanks (I'm sure I'm on a government watch list somewhere now), with the intent of holding out for 2 weeks in an off-grid situation. My prep plan was based on the advertised, 'will run for 8 hours on a 20 lb tank at half load'. I have to run 2 refrigerators and a chest freezer, plus the well pump, as essential needs. My plan was to run the generator for 1 hour, and rest for 3 hours. This would give me a day (24hrs) on one, 20lb tank. Apparently, I am drawing more than half load (3000k watts) because I was only getting 6 hours of run time out of a tank. This was a good test run, and I see that I will need to buy more tanks and propane to hold my goal of running 14 days. Ultimately, we only had to run 3 days without grid power. When we realized it would be a fairly short-lived event for us, we pulled the camper next to the house and plugged it into the generator, drawing 30 amps, and ran nearly constantly. Now we had hot showers and TV. This generator ran like a champ. My only 'down' comment would be that the beast is loud. Really loud. But that is a minor inconvenience that you forget about when you have lights and hot water. Buy this generator, stock up on propane, and buy some good quality, heavy-duty, extension cords (or get the transfer switch installed in your house).

We picked up the generator from Home Depot brought in an electrician to set it up. The generator was damaged, starter didn't work and the oil leaked all over the driveway. We called the number on the generator for support they were so rude and nothing helpful to say. Enough said.

Easy to prep for use. Started on the second pull. Dual fuel choice is a definite plus.
Worked flawlessly during recent power outage due to hurricane Matthew

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coolbob Power for all my tools away from home
Out on the farm with no electric this generator is a must, runs all my tools and the well at home when the town power is out, and that's often. My portable air compressor loves it. That's a tire getting air in the photo. I like all the 120 vt plugs and the battery charger. Robert

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Excellent piece of equipment!!
Started on 1st pull and 1st electric start. Also ran excellent on LPG. Ran better than I had imagined. Hooked up on 2 110v campers and didn't hardly put a load on it. Let it run 1 night til it ran out of gas. Filled it up and started on 1st pull. The noise wasn't that bad either. Was able to sleep without any problem. All in all it was an excellent 4 day camping trip. Would highly recommend it to anyone!! Was well built and flawless out of the box. Great features and ease of plugging in different power sources as well as operation. different Thanks for an excellent running machine!!

The little bit of assembly was very easy. Before I installed a battery. The generator stated on the second pull on the rope. Very impressive, to me.
