Good Generator but gasoline leaked at the valve
The construction and welding of the frame seem solid. But for the first time I put fuel in. Gasoline leaked at the fuel valve. It turned out that there was a crack on fuel hose. Instead of of returning to the store, I replaced the hose. Afterward, generator started up on the first pull. Everything seems to run fine, but so far, I ran the generator for only 1 hour with no load for breaking in.

Will not run Sensitive
I bought 2 of these (1 for my office and 1 for my house) They worked great on propane and better on Gas. They do have DIRTY power HZ was fluctuating from 58 - 62. Would not run my ups for my computers. Caution the box clearly said they would power computers and TV. There Tech support told me they should not be used for sensitive electronics. They need to FIX the boxes!!!
