How much does this unit actually weigh empty without fuel? The larger 4000 watt Lifan unit shows 112 pounds. Is this 3500 watt unit really 30 pounds heavier?

Does this unit have wired remote start?

I am completely off grid. My inverter has a 2 wire start relay for remote starting capable generators when needed. I see that this one appears to have a wireless key fob like a car. Just wondering if it can be hardwired to start from one of these inverter relays. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a very good purchase Was a very good purchase.I bought this generator to run my camper air and it does it well,plus runs the micro wave at the same time..I love the price,beats the Honda and the Yamaha.This is the 2nd one..Three of my friends bought one each and they feel the same as I do about mine.The best feature for us is the remote start ..We are happy campers now and we all need the air as we are over 70 yrs of age.Now we go camping in warm weather also...Fishing fools. This year has been so good because of the Lifan 3600..Thanks Homedepot...P A from ohio

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost a honda at 1/3 the cost I've used this unit for 2 outages already here with 38 hours runtime. I run a 7000 btu portable A/C unit and my 26 cf side by side fridge as well as a smaller 15 cf fridge with no issues. It does run right at 59db in eco mod. Oil change is easy. My kill-a-watt meter says it is running at 59.9 hz When both fridges are cold I remove them and plug in the chest freezer and neighbors fridge to help them out. I made a DIY ground clamp

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet and smooth running, great features, nice machine. Love it so far, I got is 5 days ago and have run it for several hours with & without a load. No issues at all, runs my 13,500btu air quietly and with ease. I'm not going to be taking it camping for another 2 weeks, so I want to test it out thoroughly before the 30 day return period is up.No instructions on how to use the remote, I could shut it off with the remote but not start it. After calling the Equipsource distributor I found out you press the start button twice quickly, it does work nicely up to about 30 - 40 feet away and you don't need the key in it. You may need to go through a few start cycles to get it to start, as it only give about 1 second of cranking per start cycle. All in all I feel it is well worth the money especially considering it comes with remote start and wheels, Other well known brands have neither and cost twice as much and are no quieter. A good friend of mine even sells the one of those well known brands, but I just couldn't see spending the money for it with out trying this one. I plan on keeping it. What have you got to lose with the 30 day like it return it policy?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good This generator started right up after adding gas and oil and ran smoothly and quietly just as I hoped it would. I was impressed with its sturdy handles and attractive design. I can only hope it will continue to operate well for a long time. On the down side: the unit is too heavy for its packaging. The box was in tatters and I found a plastic housing inside had been cracked during shipping. The manual lacks some useful information like how to access the motor to replace the spark plug but I guess it's to be expected for a product from China . I'm glad I read the reviews otherwise I wouldn't have known about pressing the remote twice to start. I put in the recommend quart of 10-30 but found the dip stick doesn't indicate the crank case is full. Don't know if I should add more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is a good value. I am very pleased with the construction quality of the generator, but it is lacking in start-up guide information. Some consumer mechanical knowledge is helpful, For example: There was nothing in the literature to tell you to connect the negative battery wire to the battery.terminal. It is concealed behind a removable side panel. It does not come with oil, therefore it needs to be properly setup prior to needing it for an emergency. I like the three methods of starting: pull start, push button and remote modules. It is quiet, compact and well priced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good For the Money! Just as nice as my Yamaha 3000iseb! Let me first say I was VERY SCEPTICAL of this off brand name. I have previously had Yamaha inverter generators (2000is, 2400is and a 3000ISEB) All were amazing generators no complaints other than their PRICE tags. I no longer have near as much use for a generator so after MUCH debate (I rarely go cheap on anything and being a small engine mechanic I was super skeptical) I decided to gable on this inexpensive no name unit. Generator was received in half the estimated delivery time. Despite prior reviews of damage due to poor packing I was very impressed with the rididy of the box and packing, unit was in perfect condition. Directions leave a lot to be desired but Simple start up, hooked up Negative battery cable, added oil, gas and it started right up. Idles smooth, QUIET! even at full load just as quiet as all my Yamahas and Hondas I have been around. I have a 38' fifth wheel with a single 15,500 BTU A/C Starts A/C just fine even in economy mode. I can even use microwave while A/C is running. Remote start is a neat feature but doubt ill use it much. I can not attest to durability as I have only run it for about and hour, but so far so good, very impressed with this low cost alternative. Will post more after I run it for three days straight at the lake in a few weeks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect The Lifan 3600 Watt Inverter Generator was an excellent pick for me save one issue. The weight was too heavy for me to easily maneuver into my 5th wheel. It started first pull and first press of the remote button and ran until empty without any issues. And because I made the purchase from Home Depot returning it was a snap. I have since ordered smaller unit which can be paralleled with another unit for the same power as the 3600 watt and more easily handled. DPinLV
