Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent fuel economy when i saw that they advertize up to 24 hour run time, i thought no way!!! however i ran my well pump, water heater, television, two freezers and one refrigerator for 15 hours and burnt 6 gallon of gas. we just experienced hurrican irene and the power was out for about 90 hours, this generator saved us alot of money when you think about two freezers full of food that would've gone to waste. it starts on the first pull and ran everything i needed it to. my mom even asked me to buy her one for christmas cuz her craftsman generator burnt twice as much fuel as mine. great generator i would suggest it to anyone!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love This Machine During hurricane Irene we lost power for 4 days. I swore I would never go through that again. Bought this generator about 6 months ago. After some minor assembly, it fired up with 2 pulls. Stored it until a couple of weeks ago. Lost power for about four hours and this performed like a champ. I am currently writing this review under generator power. The northeast just got hammered with 24+ inches of snow. Power went out about 20 hours ago, this machine has been running like a champ since then, and I am still on the first tank of gas. I spilled a little gas on the tank and it screwed up the painted finish, but other than that, this thing is a workhorse. I bought a kit and wired the entire house except for the dryer. This thing has no problem powering the whole house without skipping a beat. Highly recommend!!! February 9, 2013

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good unit, lousy service Seems like a good unit, runs strong and quality power, albeit a bit loud. However, don't count on Stanley warrenty service. When I received the unit it ran fine, but did not have any power output. I checked all the wiring but no luck. Called service center about a hiundred times, no one ever answers or returns a call. Finally after two days got through: ran through all the checks again, no luck. They tod me a tech would call, that was a week ago, no call......Finally fixed the problem myself. Let's hope it lasts and I don't have to contact service again! October 7, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great price and great features This generator is highly rated for a reason. It is very dependable and runs a long time on a tank of gas. The Home Depot representative was very helpful and the shipping on this large item was extremely reasonable. Sears lost my business because of very expensive shipping (even shipping to their own stores, instead of my house) Thank You Home Depot. December 27, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Starts easily and runs well I like this generator because it has a big fuel tank and a detachable outlet panel that can be brought inside when it is raining outdoors. Assembly was pretty straightforward however there was a minor issue with the wheel retaining bolts where the nut thread was not the same as the bolt supplied. Running an M8 tap through the nut fixed the problem. After adding oil and gas, it started first pull and has been running very well with stable voltage. Very happy with the purchase overall.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A must buy I purchased this generator last year after Hurricane Irene. I tested it and stored it for the year. tested again prior to the storm Sandy. It has been running now for 10 hours straight with no problems. We expect the power to be out for another 10 days thank goodness I have it. October 30, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not So Good Filled with recommended oil, then gas. Pulled and pulled and pulled but no luck cranking. Pulled hose from filter and no gas was coming through. Blew through tank and got gas flowing finally. Cranked and ran for about 15 seconds then a terrible screeching noise began and I shut it off immediately. Black plastic pieces were all over my shop floor from nobody knows where. I returned and got a refund immediately. STAY AWAY. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. Could have uploaded pictures of the pieces but didn't want to embarrass Stanley!!! December 18, 2014
