The LIFAN Platinum Series 7,000-Watt 389cc Gasoline Powered Low Portable Generator was made with a horizontal shaft OHV engine which features industrial-duty upgrades like cast-iron sleeves, automotive grade rods, pistons, rings, crankshafts, valves and valve springs. The OHV design provides better fuel efficiency, quieter operation and longer life. As an added bonus, all LIFAN generators come equipped with alternators that have solid copper windings which increases efficiency and gives better performance. The Platinum Portable Generators contain low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) alternator technology, which produces Clean Energy with a sine wave distortion of 5% or less. With this clean energy, all of your sensitive tools and equipment can be powered safely, without the risk of damage. This commercial-grade generator is a perfect fit for the farm, with contractors, homeowners and for job sites or special events. It is also EPA approved.
Low THD (total harmonic distortion) - the smaller the percentage of total harmonic distortion, the greater the generator's ability to provide clean power for sensitive electronics
7,000-Watt peak and 6,000-Watt running power

THE SYSTEM LOOKS GOOD. HAD EXPECTED THE 8KWATT UNIT WITH ELECTRIC START WHEN
START WHEN PLACING THE ORDER. HOPE THE UNIT STARTS EASLY WITH THE PULL STARTER. HAVE NOT PLACED ANY OIL OR GAS INTO THE UNIT. WAITING FOR AN ELECTRICAN TO REVIEW THE POSSIBILITY OF INTERFACING THE UNIT THROUGH A XFER BOX. ONE QUESTION REMAINS IF THE UNIT WILL SURPORT THE WELL PUMP AND FURNACE AT THE SAME TIME? THE WELL PUMP OPERATES AT 240 VOLTS.
Very powerful generator which has low distortion. The delivery through home depot was nice and quick. It s a nicely built unit and we were very pleased with the product and it has exceeded our expectations!
Just got this after 3 days with no shower. A super deal with Home Depot. Box was a little banged up and on close inspection cover surrounding exhaust was bent Easley straightened. Not LIFAN's fault. Shippers maybe. Back to the Generator. Wheel kit Assembly Diagram for Wheel Kit Installation not there. so instructions say tighten wheel nut securely wheel wouldn't turn, adjusted. What stands out most, filled the crank top off the fuel, gave it a weak pull not knowing what to expect. STARTED ON THAT PULL, I knew then I had made the right choice.
I bought this generator in case of an emergency so I haven't had a chance to use it yet. The build quality looks really good. The box was in bad shape but no damage to the contents. The user manual could have been better but I managed.
Generator is excellent value for the money. Fit and finsih are good and controls are easy to understand and use. Starts easily and runs well. Have tested with hard wired house system and transfer switch and works fine. The idle control should save gas and wear and tear on the engine and generator as it idled down as I reduced the load on it. Like other reviewer's comments regarding the assembly instructions, they are woefully inadequate, but if you have basic skils with simple tools and use logic, its easy to assemble the wheels and handles. Provides real peace of mind and now look forward to having it as back up for next power outage.
Got generator as promised, was a bit hard to find hidden parts ,like legs hidden on top of motor.Am going to use this for power supply for BBQ Trailer.Trailer not finished yet so cant comment on how well it works on the job. Am happy so far and am satisfied with looks and low sound for a gas generator.Like Idle feature will save fuel as electrical demand falls to low levels!
