Asked by Marshall March 9, 2021
1
Answer

If you can have the breaker box environmental proof, that should work. I have the outlet outside for the generator to plug into. The breakers are in my basement. So, we lose power: I go outside, move and start the generator, plug into side of house, go back inside, down to the basement and set 6 breaker switches from, off to generator. Power restored: Turn off generator, go downstairs and put breaker switches back to off. Go back outside, and disconnect the cord from the house and put the generator away.

When the tornadoes came through our county two weeks ago, my husband and I found ourselves without power for 36 hours. Luckily, we had purchased the Dewalt 8,000 watt generator. Our home is 3,000 square feet, and we have 4 refrigerators and 4 freezers. We had the generator wired into our home. Needless to say, the generator was able to power our entire home and the more-important 4 freezers and 4 refrigerators. With a full tank of gas, it ran 14 hours. I highly recommend this product!

This was ordered online and shipped to my home without any issues. There is minimal assembly required on this generator. You have to attach the wheels, the front bumpers, and the pivoting handle and that's it. Then you'll need to remove a red shipping bracket that is used to keep the motor locked to the frame and add oil (included) and fuel to the tank and you're ready to get started. To start this generator, you'll need to flip to switch to ON, open the fuel line, and turn on the choke (next to the air filter) and then pull the tether to start the motor. I got it on the second pull the first time I started the motor. There is a floating gas gauge that will show you how much fuel is left in the tank. a digital read out that will tell you how many hours the motor has ran as well as three sets of electrical outlets 2 sets of 20 amp outlets and a single 30a outlet. There is also a Co2 detector on the front of this that will kill the generator if too much is detected. So far we've used this to power some household appliances to test as well as our camptrailer to power the entire thing as well as recharge the batteries. all in all it's been a great generator and it will get plenty of use. Hopefully for more recreation purposes and not for emergency purposes. But if we need it, i'm glad we have it.

Dewalt has another home run. This generator will be my back up generator and for use in my out buildings that have no power hook up. These is some minor assembly required, installing the foot pads, wheels and fold-able handle for moving unit around. All in all after assembly and adding the required oil, which came with the unit. in 15 minutes it was running and working fine. They even sent a nice funnel to aid in filling the oil sump....... Besides the typical 110 V outlets, it has a 30 Amp outlet for use with a twist lock extension cord. This twist lock feature will come in very nice when using the generator for power tools and other outdoor related use.... This is a very welcome addition to my shop equipment. Thanks Dewalt.

The 4000 watt gas operated generator is absolutely a fine piece of equipment. It was simple and fast to set up and started on the first pull! My son immediately put it to use on a construction job site and is raving about the ease of portability and plenty of wattage to power his circular saw and chop saw simultaneously with no loss of power! This is one quality generator and will last a lifetime with normal routine preventive maintenance! Thank you Home Depot Seeds Program!

Next day after the generator arrived, to unpacked it, installed the wheels, handle. Then poured the oil that included to the engine. Filled gas in the tank. the engine started on the first rope pull. The unit ran smoothly. I have this new generator as my extra for emergency home use. The generator is very heavy. It is 129 lbs. I used it on a heavy duty dolly with bundles to hold it first, then to move it around to set it up to a utility shed. Hooked to the electric wires to go under my deck to guest bed room for ready to plug in asap when there is no power. a few days ago there was no power due to DUI driver hitting the street light to knock the pole down with power lights down. The generator started on first rope pull. Then went inside to set up the wires to plug in my refrigerator, one box fan. They run fine as if I had power in the house. Till the power came back on. They run good on first time use.

I ordered the DEWALT 6,500-WATT GASOLINE POWERED ELECTRIC START PORTABLE GENERATOR for my husband. It arrived via LTL (semi truck). We did get a few days notice so we could arrange a way to get it off the truck. It's 215 lbs so we needed some help. My husband was a little disappointed as it did not come with enough oil to start it up right away. Once started, he did say it runs ghost compared to others he has heard. It was easy to start.
