Excellent product and value
Comment:Bought this generator to power my new workshop. It has performed as advertised, and been a dream to operate. Starts on first pull 99% of the time; runs beyond specs on a tank of gas. I have used it every day for the last few weeks. (The folks who make this generator also listen to their customer's feedback. There were several comments made about the need for a long-necked, clear tubed oil funnel to fill oil properly. My unit came with a simple funnel with a clear tube attached that works perfectly!)

Comment:My first time ordering from GFO and the process was smooth. Excellent price with free shipping! The unit works great and is much quieter than the older portable generators.

Great generator for the price!
Comment:I am a contractor and own a small farm. Over several decades I have owned and used several generators of this size range. This generator started the very first pull, and has started the first pull every time subsequently. For a 4000W it is very quiet. You would have to pay almost 10 times this price to get a Honda to get it quieter...not worth the price. I changed the oil after 5 hours, 10 hours, and 20 hours. Very important in these small motors to help insure a long life. After that 20 hours is fine for oil change intervals. The generator has run very smoothly when using and starting up numerous saws, tools, etc. I only have 20 hours on it so far, so I cannot say what it will be like after a year or so, but so far, I am very happy with the generator and the Wheel Kit that I got for it.

Comment:We were without power for 7 days thanks to Hurricane Sandy. This machine ran for six days straight without issue. I was able to run a fridge, 46" plasma tv with cable box, and I hard-wired my oil burner. I changed the oil the day after the power was restored (it was pretty black). I am thinking of upgrading to a 220 so I can power my water heater.

My first port gen.....
Comment:Seems fine so far but we have only serviced it and started it for a test run.

Comment:Was shipped quickly, easy as pie to set up, and started right away. Just needs to warm up before trying to use with bigger equipment. Once its going for 5 mins or more then it is perfect. Not too load either. Would recommend to a friend.

Comment:30 minutes to install wheel kit, added fuel and oil, started on 3rd pull. Good unit for our emergency back-up power for our home! Would buy again... However, I would change the plastic oil tag located on the oil spout. It says fill with 30 WT oil. I live in Wyoming and this generator does NOT use 30 WT oil for this area...
