Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this little dynamo! we purchased this for Hurricane Sandy - I must admit I would have bought another model if I'd had a choice, thank God I didn't. Comes fully assembled, wheeled it out of the box, added quart of oil and 7 gallons of gas and fired on the first pull. It's easy to manuever (of course when not running), stores easily. It's loud but when you have no electricity, that is music to the ears. Hurricane Sandy took out our power and we ran the generator for the 10.3 hours we were without electricity without a refill. We powered a fridge, a freezer, LCD and LED TVs, cable box, PS3, electric fireplace, coffee pot, lights and charged cell phones. Couldn't ask for more. October 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Update - Power Out and Working Great! Well Sandy knocked out our power almost two hours ago - I had cords connected since last night - went outside and started her up with no problem - running light, pump and cable booster in basement on a 50 ft 14 gauge cord. Another two 100 ft 12 gauge cords are running into the first floor of the house and powering two lamps (one actually a halogen flood light), Fios modem, big screen TV, computers and chargers - no flickering - all working flawlessly - I have 10 gallons of gas on reserve and will check on things after about 9 hours of running. After the storm will look into hooking into the main panel - very happy with this unit!!! October 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Home Depot came through in a pinch! We were hit by some powerful storms and were told the power could be out for up to 10 days. So we began our search for a generator to power the refrigerator and freezer. Home Depot made emergency shipments out to at least 3 of our local Home Depot locations and we were able to pick up this unit for the same price as a 3,000 Watt from Walmart (Although we had a feeling they raised all of their prices). The unit started right up and worked very well from the start. We only ran it for about 2 hours out of courtesy for our neighbors, but even with both units cranked all the way up, some lights, fans, and other small electronics plugged in we had absolutely no problems. Although if we had a choice, we probably would have picked a different unit, this was perfect in a pinch. Now our next purchase for a generator will be a whole home unit, and this will be used as a backup and for our "civilized" camping trip. August 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ready to Go Bought mine for hurricane Issac and it started first pull. Use it for about 47 hours with just stopping to refuel with no problems. Loud, but it performrd great. September 14, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems like a great generator for the price Waited on line at home depot for 13 hours before the hurricane and purchased this as it was the only one that had arrived. Might have opted for a Briggs and Stratton or Generac but beggars can't be choosers a few hours before a major storm! Perhaps premature to rate but based upon features and price seems like a nice unit. Nothing to assemble - just add oil (says capacity is 1+quart but quart provided seemed to fill) and gas and started on first half pull! Seems a little loud but don't really care as it will be in shed when running. Comes with a splitter for the 220 line so can accommodate 4 + 4 (8 total)115 volt outlets - alot of capacity. Tested it briefly and it works! Hopefully will not need it but will update when I actually get to use it and get a feel for the capacity... October 28, 2012
