Good Product For The Price
There's probably not a whole lot that can be said about generators, but this one is solid. It doesn't feel cheaply built and if you don't want to spend the money on a Honda of the same size, then this is your purchase.

Pros:
- Good power output. I use it for a mobile woodshop and I typically require a 3000 watt draw. Handles it well.
- Price
-3 year warranty if you can remember to register it.

Cons:
- no electronic start. I would rather pay a little more for it but it's not that... more
Pros: Durable, Price, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Heavy

Very Good Generator
Received generator in 3 business days. No damage to generator. Prepared generator as per manual which is well written. Generator started on second pull. Small effort necessary to pull recoil starter. Ran generator 30 minutes at 2500 watts.The digital meter is a nice feature. Meter showed 121 volts, 60.8 HZ (cycles) at 2500 watts. Very little vibration. Can not comment on longevity but generator is "solid" and well built. Not of flimsy construction. Wheels and handles are... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

"When considering the CAT generator called two or three times with questions about the CAT and other generators. The tech support people I spoke with had good product knowledge, were helpful in selecting which generator to purchase."
