Power Equipment Direct Recommended

This LP powered portable generator had a lot of engineering input before it came to market. It was actually PED experts that recommended some of the great features on this product, like push-button electric start and fuel selector dial.

LP portable generators are a big hit with people that have experienced long gas station lines after a storm. During Hurricanes people waited hours just to get a few gallons of gas to power their generator. LP tanks can be purchased before hand with no risk... more

Generator Performed Better Than Expected
Delivery was faster than expected, assembly illustrations could be a little better illustrated with the wheel/feet assembly. The generator was quieter than expected and the display panels are very clear. The oil drain plug open ended wrench is too big for the drain plug wrench. A size 13 MM is provided but a size 12 MM sprocket wrench did the job. Overall, a quality generator with reliable performance at a good price. Follow the directions and take care of it as recommended... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Heavy, Bad Instructions
