Very Dependable, Great Gas Saver
I have run this generator for over 750 hours now. It will run for 10 hours on one tank with a current draw of 800 watts. Starts easy hot or cold, compensates quickly. The only generator that is quieter is the Honda at a lot more money. You can stand over it and talk in a normal voice.
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

Jason,
Very sorry that you're not satisfied with your generators. Briggs states in their owner's manual that the maximum power when running (2) P2200 in parallel is 3000 watts.

First Time Generator Buyer
This is my first time to operate a generator so take what I say with grain of salt. Have run it twice while at camp. So far so good. It started right up on 2nd or 3rd pull. It performs like I had hoped it would. It is slightly noisier than I had wished. But based on price and performance I would get it again and recommend it to others.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable
Cons: Not as quiet as I had wished.

Perfect For Camping Or Hunting Trips
My biggest fear was upsetting long time camping friends when I ran it at night for my Cpap machine. They were amazed how quiet it was and the noise concerns was a non-issue. Performance was A+ and uses fuel very sparingly. Great price and no regrets
Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Price, Easy To Use

Good Product For The Money
I have 5 Honda generators and wanted to try something different. After reading many reviews, I decided to try the Briggs & Stratton. Out of box after adding fuel and oil, it actually started on the first pull. It is not as quiet as the Honda and the slow idle is a little faster, but for the money it is worth every penny. So far I have about 80 hours on it with no trouble.we will see if it does a thousand like the Honda with no repairs except changing the oil.
Pros: Price, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again, Durable

Great Product
I purchased a P2200 and P3000 with the parallel kit for my RV and tailgating. The parallel box was inexpensive and fit nicely into the handle of the little gen. Really like the parallel outlet rather than plugging into the standard 120V plugs. I can plug this into my RV and have more power for lights ant he USB for my phone. Super quiet! Another great product from Briggs!

Can't wait to try the P2200 for some tailgating this summer. Love the product!
Pros: Features, Quiet, Price, Light Weight

At One Month - Does What It Says On The Label
I watched the one video review on this gen set before deciding to buy it. Everything was packaged as claimed. It started on the fourth pull.

After hooking up to my Kill-A-Watt, a variac, and an electric heater, I verified that it does start warning at 1700 Watts of output and the overload trips at 2200 W, just as the specs in the manual say. Does a fine job running the 5000 BTU window AC in my small camper.

Assembly quality and design are pretty good. The safety sticker on the side is... more

Great Generator!
Bought this mainly for a coffee pot at camp! Works great! Same features as Honda or Yamaha but about $300 less! I ran it or three days straight just to see how it reacted! Never had a glitch! So far so good!

Quiet
This generator surpassed my expectations! I recently picked on up for some spring caming with my family. It's much quieter than other generic generators that I have used in the past. It sips fuel, and ran for much longer than I expected.
I have used it 3 or 4 times already and it has been more than enough power for my small camper.

The price is much less than other brands, and this model is built by a reliable company and has more power!

Randy,
Glad to hear you are enjoying your P2200 as much as we have making it. It is great to take on your outdoor adventures and we definitely recommend a parallel kit if you are looking for more power when out with your camper.

Briggs & Stratton Great Value
Mets all expectations. I needed a generator to run my power tools building a pole barn i.e. chop saw, air compressor, lighting. Starts on 1st or 2nd pull.

Have a Honda 1000w for years and thought of buy a 2000w Honda but consider the Briggs and it was half the price. On the outside the quality appears to be no different compared to the Honda but time will tell. Have approximately 80 hours run time and trouble free.

First Time Internet Buyer No Regrets
After a lot of research I decided on the Briggs P2200..like my Briggs snow blower it quick to start and runs great. I am in construction and I tested my generator with a variety of heavy duty power tools like 1/2 inch drill and power saws with the heavy load of cutting and boring through dimensional lumber. Great generator performed flawlessly.
First time using an inverter generator. Love the relative quiet purr of this machine.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
