Briggs & Stratton P3000 Powersmart Inverter Generator
If you can own one inverter, own the Briggs & Stratton 3000. Now I haven’t had a lot of time on this inverter, but as this year goes on, I will rack up the hours. As you can see by the video, I am pretty excited. In fact, I think I even said it had a cigarette lighter, which it doesn’t. I meant it has a 12V. The first thing I like about this is Briggs didn't cut any corners. It comes with everything you need to run this inverter. You get the oil, the funnel, the cables, okay it... more

So Far, A Great Investment
Out of the box, filled with oil and fuel. Six pulls on the recoil started and we have power. Connected a 1600 watt load to test and no problems. Not as smooth as my Honda generator but just about as quiet.

Great price compared to Honda generators. Durability to be determined. Having a fuel gauge is a big plus. The power meter is odd in that it lists the percentage of rated power rather than actual wattage.

Being an electrician I would prefer wattage, but the average person might be... more

Could Not Be Happier
Filled it with Mobile 1 5w-30 and premium gas 93. Two pulls and it started. Plugged in a 1600 watt hair dryer to try it. It was only at 32%. Now I am ready to heat my house and keep my food cold the next time we lose power. Also it is very quiet.

Could Be Better
I ordered this generator on 8-16, and received it on 9-04.
I put in gas and oil as instructed, and finally got it started after 40+ pulls.

I have had it for 3 days now and the Recoil rope broke today from having to pull 20-50 times before it would start, this is very frustrating if you have to spend 20 minutes to start a generator. I am going to take it in to a local Briggs & Stratton Dealership to see what the problem is.

Once I get it running, it runs very smooth and surprisingly... more

Quiet And Easy To Use
I bought this generator for use with a PA system for use at barefoot waterski tournaments and Multisport events (duathlons, triathlons, etc). It is so quiet that I could place it next to the PA system and did not have to run long extension cords to a remote location like with my previous very loud generator. Inverter design is a bonus. Very happy with the purchase. Much less expensive than the comparable Honda or Yamaha generators.

Great Little Unit
This is my second one and it starts easier than the first. Always on the first pull. I still think that the wattage meter should display the actual wattage rather than a percentage of total.

And what is the total? Rated load or starting load? If it displays the actual wattage you can know exactly how much more you can add. As it is now you have to guess.

The oil change intervals are half what other generators are. Not sure what that is all about, but I always change the oil before the... more
