Skinit 1700-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator with Quiet Tailgate Inverter is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Generator I got this unit for charging my Lipo batteries for my RC Helicopters out in the air field. Now these aren't the little toy helicopters.... these are the $1000++ ones that can do flips and 3D aerobatics and have 4 to 5 foott rotor span ... I haven't really test out the unit with a high load yet. I have 4 x Dell 700W server power supplies wired in series = 50 volts 2800 watts. Chargers I'm using is the icharger 4010 duo or the Reaktor 1000w charger. I only plugged in two power supply for testing the unit with 10 amps at 24 volts .... is only 240 watts .... really nothing to what the unit can produce... Cant wait to charge 4x 6s 3300 mah lipos at 30 to 40 amps.. even doing that is only asking for 1000watts Also the instructions says there is a dip stick....? nope oh well I just measure out 13oz of oil is what the manual ask for and fill it up.... All good and no leakage... Unit is also pretty quite and easy to start.... very first start took one pull... So I'm happy and the weight is good for walking around the air field..... Can report more when I actually go out and do some more flying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy!!!! DO NOT BUY....purchased on 8-29-15 for college tailgating . Of the 7 games I went to it only worked 1 time. Generator has been in shop 3 times so far and it still will not run over 30 minutes without shutting off. I called Homelite Customer service and asked for a member of management to call me and they have yet to do so. I got a LEMON machine maybe you will get one that works.... The coupon in box for Skinit was expired when it arrived via UPS shipping and when I called Homelite and Skinit to ask about it I was told by both that neither would not make good on it due to it not being a program that Homelite had with Home Depot. It was a program that Homelite had with its dealers and Home Depot purchased all generators on close out and the coupons had expired so they would not honor it. I called Home Depot and they were great to work with concerning this . CS at Home Depot asked how much the Skinit would have cost and I told them $35 and they refunded me $50 on credit card that was used. I have video it it trying to run this past Saturday after picking up at repair shop. Pulled 3 times....it started....ran for 32 seconds and stopped.....never came back on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best portable generator made by Homelite Got this generator two days ago from Homedepot price drop. Filled up the tank with gas and put oil in the engine, followed the starting procedures on the generator. One pull, first pull, started right up. White smoke came out from the exhaust, let the generator ran at full speed, more white smoke came out. Don't scare! Just over filled with motor oil. Took out some oil to the same level just below the oil plug. Started it up in the first pull again. No more white smoke. Let the engine ran for few minutes at idle and crank it up at full load speed. Very smooth! Connected a 7 amp electric impact wrench, no problem. Connected a 1500 watt electric heater, no problem. Very powerful with 1700 watt running power and 2100 watt starting surge power. Only cost less than half of a Honda and Yamaha generator. This is the best tailgate generator for home power lost. Just cannot connect to another generator to double the power. With this price, I can get two for different house areas.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from good for light loads only Looked nice, well packaged. Added provided oil to top of oil filler threads, still had some oil left. Upon filling with e10 gas I noticed the gas was removing the pretty red paint around the fill port. Generator started and after a bit ran smoothly. Let it run with a light load thru my kill- a -watt meter for an hour or so. Then added increasing loads and at 1500 watts the red overload light began to flicker. After a few minutes the internal breaker tripped. The engine sounded like it had a load on it but was not bogging down. Tried a back to back test running an RV A/C with a Honda EU2000. Honda started and ran both fridge and A/C no problem. Homelite struggled to run just the A/C only by turning the fan on low first then turning on the compressor. (Running watts was 1230) No way will this generator come near to its rated output. It's more like 1400-1600 watts max. It IS quiet and did not use much fuel. I returned it to Home Depotl no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful, Portable, Easy to Maintain, FREE Custom Skin It Decals The Homelite 2100 watt inverter generator keeps the lights on and the fridge running, and also provides a portable easy to use power source for on-the-go power needs at events or job sites. No one wants the power to go out, but if it does, this generator is here to keep your most vital appliances running. Need portable electricity at an event? Or do you need to run some power tools, but have no outlets near you? This compact generator is made for you. When you unpack the generator, included in the box you'll get a very informative quick start flyer, a full manual, a Skin It coupon for your choice of decals to apply to the generator (or you can design your own), a bottle of 10w40 oil, a screwdriver, spark plug socket and funnel. It has everything you need but the gasoline! The manual is well done, clearly written, has lots of illustrations and is very easy to follow to ensure success in running and maintaining your generator. Starting the machine for the first time is straight forward and is similar to starting any small four stroke engine. Fill the crank case using the included oil, fill the tank with gasoline, turn the switch to ON, pull out the choke and give it a couple yanks. It will purr like a kitten in no time. At that point you can plug in your items and the generator will self regulate it's speed with the auto-idle switch turned to on. It has two standard AC power outlets and one 12 volt DC outlet. The 12VDC outlet has a cord included and can be used to charge 12V batteries at 7.5 amps. I love that feature. You can use the AC outlets and the 12VDC outlet at the same time too. Great! According to the manual this generator can power a standard size refrigerator, a few regular light bulbs and a flat panel TV all at the same time. When everyone else is sitting in the dark, you won't have to worry about food spoiling and missing your favorite TV shows. It can run over 14 hours at half load, saving you the inconvenience of constantly having to refill the gas tank. Since this weighs about 45 pounds when full of fuel, it can easily be moved from site to site where you need it. The handle fits in your hand well and makes carrying it a breeze. Perfect for camping or tailgating at the game. Running noise is quite acceptable and won't drive everyone around you bonkers. They do a good job on insulating the case and muffler. All the maintenance hatches are easy to get to with the included screwdriver and following the manual. It has a low oil light and the engine will not run without the proper level of oil. A great safety feature. They even give you an access hatch, and preinstalled drain line to drain the fuel from the carburetor when it's time for storage. Homelite gives the residential user a two year warranty with this generator. Peace of mind on a quality built item. Everything about this machine feels well built and made to last. Even the plastic case is thick and sturdy and all the access panels are well thought out. Providing the 12V charging cord and the tools to maintain it was a welcome added bonus. I highly recommend this to anyone needing a generator in this wattage range. Redeem that Skin It coupon right away and make this generator truly yours!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Homelite 2100 watt Generator, Forget the Skinit decal!! First I would like to say for my purpose this is a good generator, I have used it 4 times for charging R/C helicopter batteries at the field. The generator fires right up and is nice and quiet in eco throttle mode also it is a good size as it fits in my cars trunk and is not very heavy. Next I have to roast Home Depot!! This generator is sold as a "Skinit" model with a coupon for a free Skinit decal that you can design and order. After an hour or so on the skinit website designing my skin I got to the check out and entered my code only to find out this promotion ended on 05/31/2015 and Skinit would not honor it. I bought my generator on 09/08/2015 and after a long waste of time on the phone to home depot I was told to call skinit and plead my case to them . This also proved to be a waste of time and they were well aware that Home Depot was still selling these generators even though "Skinit" was not going to honor this coupon for a free skin!! Now another call to Home Depot and my case was sent to the"resolution center" and 2 and a half weeks later I was issued a refund check for the price of the Skinit. So bottom line yes this is a good generator for the money if you don't care about the Skinit decal?.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and easy to use Just picked up my generator a few weeks ago and set it up and have tested it a few times since I received it. It was easy to set up, ran a vacuum cleaner (as a test), lights, etc. with no problem. Easy to operate and extremely quiet. Fits easily in my trunk for tailgating or easy transport (I manage property so having a generator that's light and maneuverable is important). I was originally thinking about getting the 2000w honda, but there's no way it's quieter than this homelite or worth almost twice the price. I researched a lot of inverter-generators and so far I'm convinced that this homelite is the way to go.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Generator Excellent little generator. This thing is a great size which make it easy to take along. It can run small appliances and electronics. Homelite has an excellent tool on their website to help you figure out how many things you can start and run at the same time. It is great for DIY projects as well camping or tailgaiting. It can easily run small flat panel tv's, phone chargers and radios. The instructions are easy to follow and it comes with everything you need to start running right away.
