Customer Reviews

Pulsar 5,250/4,250-Watt Gasoline Powered Recoil Start Portable Generator with 224 cc Ducar Engine is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from would not recommend The first one I got was broke in the box Home Depot took back without any problems. The second one was fine when I unpacked it and test ran. The first time the power was out ran wide open their customer support sent a voltage regulator, made no sense and did not fix the problem. Decided to fix myself as I was borrowing a generator still without power. Found the governor arm was loose and the top hat inside the engine fell off. I fixed it required engine disassembly and worked fine. Two mth later still worked when out camping. A month after that no power generation as it is out of warranty and the service sucks need to ship for repair no local repair now need a new generator with about 30 hours of use.

Set it up per the instructions. Started up on first pull. Let it run for a while to settle in. Plugged in a 1500 watt saw and when I turned on the saw the generator motor instantly died. Restarted it, let it settle in and tried a 900 watt drill and the motor instantly died. Restarted it, let it settle down, plugged in a small electric heater and turned just the fan on and the generator kept running. Then turned the heater to 750 watt setting and the generator motor sputtered and struggled but kept going. Turned the heater to the 1500 watt setting and the generator motor instantly died. The generator may be correctly rated to 1600 watt continuous and 2200 watt surge but the little motor that is pared with it will not run the generator under those loads. This make the whole unit useless. I returned the generator to a Home Depot store and they promptly and efficiently refunded my whole purchase price. That is a very strong point for Home Depot. They should just not sell products that do not work as advertised.

It does have a 30 and 50 amp outlet. It is made in P.R.C. People's Republic of China so its engine is likely a Honda clone. With that said mine seems to run perfectly. I broke the engine in with normal 10-30 motor oil and then put in synthetic oil. I run it every 45-60 days for 15-20 minutes with a 9 amp shopvac plugged in. I liked the warranty but never had to use it. It has an electric start but I just use the pull cord. I have about 26 hours of runtime on it now and can't say a bad thing about it....other than it's made in PRC and not clearly marked on the box in came in....hence the 4 stars..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Life saver in recent Pennsylvania storms Bought it for $199 . After adding the oil and gasoline, it started on the third pull. After taking my house off of the power grid by switching off the main switch, I plugged one generator outlet to a standard outlet of our house and powered our gas heating system, our refrigerator and a few lights in key rooms. We were safe and toasty at a time when our community was powerless for 2 days in subfreezing weather. The generator ran flawlessly. It's 16 hour run-time on 4 gallons of gas is impressive!

I was able to get this one, assembled it (fairly quickly) and it started on the first pull. It ran my refrigerator, freezer, lights and charges without any issues. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bare bones generator. Has a amp and hour read... Great bare bones generator. Has a amp and hour read out and 240 hook up. Wish the fuel tank would be bigger. Handles power surges, like when the well pump kicks on or a portable heater goes on. Best price at Home Depot.
