This Is A Well Designed Generator
I especially like it came with all the tools you need to assemble wheels and feet. They even included a funnel with tube so you can properly put oil in engine. My son is going to help me assemble it is too heavy for me handicapped now.
The design is much better than my 1998 Generac exhaust does not hit you in the face when working on control panel.
Pros: Durable, Features, Easy To Use, Price
