Works like. champ
This was my first generator purchase after careful consideration. So far, all ha been great. I like that the generator was shipped directly from the manufacture. Assembly was easy and simple. I purchase the wheel kit with carry handle from another merchant specifically for this model generatorand that worked great! Engine started on first pull and I couldnt be happier with my purchase

    Great generator for dry camping.
    Perfect generator for boondocking, or dry camping. Fits perfectly on the back of my rack on my 31 foot travel trailer. Runs my 15K a/c, fridge, televisions, lights, and sump pump with no problem. It is a little louder compared to inverter generator but for $250 you can’t beat it. I’ve ran it for 5 days in a row without an issue, and that’s in the Texas heat with it 108 degrees. Again, for the price this genny is a beast.

      havent used this for a long period of time yet but on the few test runs I did it performed well. It started right up each time and I ran it for about 10 minutes. It powered my refrigerator , small A/C window unit (5000 BTU) and also a 1500w space heater. I didn't run all 3 at once but it did not hesitate running each one. Its a bit loud but that was expected similar to a gas lawn mower. I put wheels on it with some spare parts I had in the shed. its heavy to move around without them , weighs about 80-90 lbs without gas.

        Put oil and gas into it, started right away. Then using my apple watch I took sound level readings, holding my watch about 5ft above the ground. Readings were in my back yard with unit sitting on my concrete patio, about 15 feet from my house. No load on the generator. Ambient Noise Level, i.e. nothing running: 39db Distance (feet)/Reading (DB) 2 / 76 4 / 75 8 / 72 12 / 71 16 / 69 20 / 68 24 / 67 28 / 66 32 / 66 36 / 64 40 / 63 (this was inches from my wooden fence)

            Easy start easy direction all i needed was oil and gas . Has never failed to crank on the first pull . Wish it were a tad quieter and the small gauge keeps coming loose easy to tighten back up but I'm afraid eventually the small nuts will fall off and i wont notice till too l but for the price perfect.

            I ordered this generator with the ship-to-store option. Took longer than promised and that's only a factor because I was on a schedule. The product that was sent to fulfil this order looks completely different than the above picture. It is the same model number. However, the capabilities are exactly the same (minus the voltmeter) and it was an awesome super sale price. It started fine, ran well and powered the things I needed it to. I will keep it but for others who may order this, I would say ship it to a store, that way if it's not the same as the picture you can refuse it right there.

              I ordered this last minute before hurricane florence. It got to use by ups in 3 days. It was a life saver. I ran the refrigerator, microwave, 2 flat screen TV's, a george foreman grill 2 DVD players and a box fan for 10 hrs straight before needing to refill with gas. We were without power for 5 days and this generator surpassed my expectations. Home depot was the only one that could get this to me as quick as I needed it under the circumstances. Very greatful!!!

                Brought this as an emergency backup for my in-law. The weight is decent, but still 50+lbs, so didn't want to take it out of the box until we REALLY need to use it. After reviewing all the reviews regarding broken parts when delivered, I decided to take it out to inspect it before the 30 days return expires ..... sure enough the Spark Plug Cap / Boot is broken. Called the 800#, staff is very courteous, took info and promised to send replacement part and reassure that it a 1 year warranty. However, waited 11 days & still havn't received the replacement part. Not taking a chance to push the 30 days return policy to its limit & returned it to HD. Home Depot make the return at ease, but if I had a choice, I rather keep it then going through the hassle of transporting the 50+lbs box. Wish I had a chance to crank it up.

                  First it was a 2000 watt for 159.99 + tax. It got here just fine. I put in the oil and then put in some gas and it started up like it said. Why they call it 1400 watt is strange to me. I made a shed on my porch that is set up with an exhaust to the outside to keep the CO away from the house. I even cabled it down and put a cover on it to keep it safe from the peeps. I even put in 2 extension cords and a shelf for other items so no matter what, I can make it work.

                    I haven't use it yet, but mainly wanted to respond to the questions/reviews about at wheel kit. I didn't want to buy the generic wheel kits that you can get due to the fact that you have to drill through the frame. The frame tubing is pretty small on this, not to mention that it would allow moisture/rust into the frame by drilling on it. So,.. I bought two small lawn mower wheels for $5 each, a stick of 1/2" steel rod, 2 axle nuts, 2 u-bolts, and 6' of poly rope and made my own wheel kit for $25, and it works great!

                      Well the little generator that could saved the day during Hurricane Irma. At least the neighbors cell phones stayed charged among other things powered. We were out of power for more than 5 days. I was pleased with the run time on 3.6 gal of fuel so even being able to run it intermittently for lack of fuel was very helpful. I live I a condo so the generator sat outside my door under the stoop and faithfully fired up on every first pull. My only problem is where to store it for future use. I have to say that no one in town or surrounding area had generators left before the storm hit so, with limited hope, I ordered online on Tuesday and Home Depot had it at my door in 2 days with free shipping! It was supposed to be here on Friday but instead it came Thursday and the hurricane hit on Saturday night! I was so surprised and grateful because I thought it might not make it before UPS shut down. Not sure if Home Depot rushed it out knowing I was in the path of destruction or not but knowing how they support communities in time of disaster, I think they did.
