Looks good and it works
Comment:Got a super fast delivery on this product. Unpacked it and had to wait a day to check it out. Removing the shipping braces in the bottom of the unit can be tricky because the nuts and bolts are really tight (thats good) but the metal used to make these particular four nuts and bolts is just a little on the soft side and care must be used that a good wrench doesn't strip the shape of the corners on the nuts when removing. Be sure to read the manual prior to starting. I put the unit on the deck and funneled in some oil (It says it holds a quart but be sure you don't overfill with that quart). I then set up a ground wire and installed a quart of gas. I just wanted to do a test run and didn't want to leave gas in the tank when I stowed away the unit. I found my good heavy load extension cord and a double burner hot plate that had been stored in the garage for too many years. Next I set the gas valve to open and put the choke lever to choke, flipped the red rocker switch for engine start / stop operation then moved the breaker flip switch to the on position and pulled the starter cord. One pull with the choke on and it started right up. I flipped the choke to the off position and it was crusing. I hooked up the two burner hot plate and varied out the burner operation as I ran one burner on its limit of med, then the other burner on high and watched both burners get red hot. It would vary the speed of the generator as I tinkered with the hot plate switches. That particular hot plate information show it draws 1750 watts. I had it on most of the time and the quart of gas lasted about 20 minutes under that load. It looks good and it works fine. I didn't order the wheel kit and was able to lift and slide the unit as needed but sat it on another wheeled unit (that I already had)and it works pretty good for now, but I may order the wheels kit and cover later. This unit measures appx. a compact 17.5H x 17.5W x 23.5L and is a neat fit in a cozy corner. (I am currently storing mine in the dining room) The price was $370 with free shipping and it turned out to be a pretty good deal so far.

Great little generator
Comment:Shipment arrived a little late but then again everything including FedEx was messed up because of Hurricane Irene. I unboxed this generator. It is easy to lift and move. I didn't purchase the wheel kit and don't plan to. I did not start it as I don't want to put gas in it and leave it for a long period of time. Be sure to get a quart of 10w30 motor oil. It is not supplied. I am hoping that I don't need it, but I am sure it will be great when I do.

WOW..... What a buy.....
Comment:What a great little Generator ! From the time I have put it together I have loved this thing... I got this model four months ago and just in time for Hurricane Irene... Only lost power for three hours but I plugged in my big Freezer, one Fridge and two fans in with no trouble.... A great unit for the price.... I am buying two more this week for my mom and a friend of mine... Might get electric start and go to the next size up too...
