Customer reviewsSo Far So Good Solid Value
I rarely write reviews, but I know for this purchase, I relied some what heavily on the verified reviews. First off I work in the construction world, and feel I have a above average aptitude for trouble shooting, installation, and confidence of use. The generator came on a truck with a Tommy gate, and the driver unloaded and placed in the garage for my wife I was out of town , trucking company communicated well and timely. I put the accessories on, I.e. handles, wheels, etc, which was a semi easy task, I will note the generator is heavy, I don t have an exact weight but I had to grunt a little to move it around with out the wheels. I filled with oil full synthetic , fresh 93 grade fuel, and hooked the battery up and let it sit for a few hours. The generator fired right up with the electric start, and ran fairly good but was a little choppy and ran hard. I turned it off and checked oil and for any issues leaks. I let it sit for a little longer and started back up and still ran a little rough, which I attributed to being a new start with no load to the motor. I hooked the generator up with the provided whip, into my 50a generator plug, that I wired into my panel. As soon as I started turning on breakers the generator rev d up and was singing perfectly with no hiccups. I turned on all breakers, including my A C and furnace for blower fan . I live in Florida on the space coast, and this generator will be vital during hurricane season. The a c for some reason didn t start up at first, but after some time I did get it to kick on, and the generator rev d up more and still sounded good. The noise level is actually quiet for its size and capability, but it s by no means quiet. At the time it was running the majority of the lights in my house, A C, tv, fans, fridge, and microwave. It finally tripped and pulled to much when my wife decided to run the dish washer. I will add to my review on my next maintenance run, or use after a power outage. I put 0 stars for tech support because I have not needed it to this point, so I can t accurately rate this.
