I primarily use this as a mobile power supply for my Everlast 251si welding machine. There is a little lag time when I start a pass but at lower amps it is very consistent. I do recommend the product for industrial use due to the high digitally controlled amount of clean power it produces. The gas economy is quite good allowing me to get about a weeks worth of heavy welding tasks done on 1 tank.

THE UNIT WAS LEAKING GAS FROM THE CARBURATOR BOWL.
Quality :

Value :

THE GENERATOR WAS EASY TO SET UP (THE MANUAL IS A JOKE AND USELESS EXCEPT FOR LIFANS PHONE NUMBER) AND THE UNIT STARTED UP AFTER TWO PULLS. EVERYTHING LOOKED OKAY UNTIL I NOTICED GASOLINE LEAKING UNTO MY GARAGE FLOOR. THIS WAS CAUSED BY A PIN HOLE (MANUFACTURING DEFECT) IN THE CARBURATOR BOWL. AFTER WAITING OVER A MONTH FOR THIS UNIT I DECIDED IT WAS EASIER TO FIX THE CARBURATOR THAN RETURN THE UNIT. LIFAN WAS VERY COURTEOUS AND SENT ME THE NEEDED PARTS QUICKLY. AFTER REPAIR THE UNIT RAN FLAWLESSLY.

Powerful, but not enough for AC
It holds the whole house of 3500 sq.ft. but cannot start AC. Voltage drops to the point AC unit shuts off. At some point 50 amp beaker on the generator was flaring off. After 2 years, it works. Quite noisy, but that was expected. Is the power clean? To some extend. Most of my battery backup do not fail as it was with other generators, which were not had clean power. For some reason 200 Watt LED lamp blew up with I turned it on while on generator. Not sure if because of the power, or just bad bulb.

Good generator. Lifan makes generators for many brands, like Dewalt. The engine is sound, features are good. A couple of slight improvements would be good. 1. Move filler cap for the gasoline out from under the lift cross piece. 2. Add an hour meter. 3. Add regulator(s) for propane and natural gas. 4. Ship it with a battery. Also, you should know the battery for the starter does not charge when the generator runs. It should be stored on a trickle charger and charged when needed.

The axid did not fit the generator. The box had been previously opened. The plug was not in the box at all. Three weeks later and I still don’t have the right parts. I will NEVER order again from Home Depot.
