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
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 reading...

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
