Rated 5 out of 5Â by Robsterrob Great Generator - well built - converted to tri-fuel
This generator was very easy to assemble, couple wheels and handles and it was set to go. I purchased a tri-fuel conversion kit (not at HD) and installed it with some modification to the frame of the generator. Next filled it up with some hi quality synthetic 5w-30 oil designed for small engines and was ready to go. Please note that the generator does come with a quart of 4 stroke oil that also can be used. The generator will be using a 30A L14-30R generator cable from generator to L14-30R outlet on outside of house. This outlet then wires directly to a manual 10 position transfer switch. I have it about 6 ft from the house on a small 3ft x 3ft concrete pad I poured. I then started by firing the generator up using a natural gas connection - started immediately and ran very nicely - unloaded! For a quick check I plugged in a 1000W halogen work light to load the generator. Once plugged in the generator loaded down and again continued to run nicely. The exhaust on this thing is a very nice size allowing it to run at the listed 71dB level - pretty quiet for a 5500W generator! I can barely hear it inside my house, I am very satisfied. I also purchased the cover for it, pretty basic but does the job nicely. Now I actually am looking forward to the first power outage. I may update after that occurs.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by arcajake Just what was promised!
Couldn't have asked for a better deal. I shopped around, and asked my electrician as well, to see if the "deal of the day" was as good as advertised. All agreed, and I purchased it. How convenient that it had free shipping to my door! With a very small amount of assembly, filling with oil and gas, I was up and running within a half hour of its delivery. Totally ready for power outages at my house!

Performed admirably during our power outage,,,,this unit was still going 11 hours later and I had to power it down first to add gas,,,,,wish it had an electric start as it did not start on first or even second pull,,,,in fact, we need to get a couple of additional gas cans to store reserves as the tank on this is so big that as soon as u fill it,,,u have to go out and get more gas,,,,but that's worth it if it continues to run forever like it did for us! Buy a battery operated syphon pump though as trying to lift the gas cans to refill the tank can be a tough experience,,,,u can get those syphons for 15 bucks,,,well worth it,,,
