Installed the oil and checked level. Gassed it up , hooked up the battery and it fired right up. Used it with some power tool and it was flawless. I had a power outage and ran several items in the house for about 8 hours continuous run time with no hiccups or issues. Love it so far.

We purchased this generator last year to use in the event of an emergency/power outage situation. A short time ago, we had the chance to test it out with our transfer switch. It worked very well. The generator started up easily with the electric ignition. I've also successfully started the generator using the pull cord. We were able to run our fridge and freezer, as well as our hot water heater and some outlets and light fixtures without any problems. The only complaint I have about this item is the lack of instruction in the owner's manual to flip the breaker on the control panel to allow power to go from the generator to the outlets on the generator (and consequently to the end unit requiring power). I was trying to set this up in the cold, dark weather for 45 minutes. I finally found out how to set up the generator properly for use after viewing a YouTube video about this make and model. https://youtu.be/u2yUEqS9b6o at the 2:30 mark. Once I flipped the breaker on the control panel after starting the generator, everything worked very smoothly. I give it two stars for ease of use for the lack of a critical step in the operation manual. The actual setup and use is very simple. It is quite loud, which is to be expected with a 450cc motor running at full throttle. We ran it for about 2.5 hours with no problems. I would recommend this item, based on the use

During the last storm in Texas during sept of 2020 our lights were out about 4 days. Our new A-i power generator was outstanding in performance and reliability. The generator ran for 4 days straight keeping all the lights computers and appliances running. I highly recommend this for whole house operations. Our house is approximately 1900sq ft and we had no problems.
