Runs Great So Far
Purchased this generator on 10/31. So far have ran the generator for approximately 2+ hours. Assembly (about 1hr time) was very easy (leave on pallet till done with wheels assembly). Started the generator right up. Also starts easy with pull start. Front panel where all the controls are located is nice, except for the gas shut off valve is off to the side.

Excellent
I needed to upgrade my old 2500 watt generator which wasn't big enough for my current needs. I bought this generator after much research and I couldn't be happier.

It was so easy from ordering the generator to firing up the finished product. My order arrived in 4 days, and the shipper called me to set up the appointment the day before as was promised.

There was minimal set up which took about a 1/2 hour and it cranked over twice and fired right up, it was that easy!!!!!
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
