I was in the market for a back up generator with dual fuel. I watched the pricing on a few models for about a couple of years and they all seemed to be around $1200-$1500 (except for Honda which was 3x's as much). On Black Friday I noticed the pricing on a major website was advertising for $999 on this model. But being the prudent (Cheap) shopper I am I did a google search and The Generator Factory Outlet came up at $849. At first I thought it was a open box item or a refurb but when I clicked on it; I was surprised the price was for a new unit and even offered $25 off code for first time shopper with free shipping. Of course I ordered it immediately but expected 2-3 weeks for delivery (since it was free and the thing weighs 340lbs on the pallet). So imagine my surprise when it arrived the following Friday. Set up was easy (Wheels, Handles and oil) and it started right up. I have tested the load on this and I believe it will run my entire house (not all major 240appliances and AC at the same time.. but who would do that in an emergency anyway). I would Highly recommend this product and this company! However, if you want $425 off Like I got you may have to wait until next Black Friday; but I can say with confidence that it is worth the $1249 listed price.
Just got it a few days ago, one tire(never flat) was flat on one side, customer service was great(RAY was his name). Easy to work with. I did try to hand start it but 18hp?? Works great with battery.
We bought this generator about 6 months ago and just had a power outage due to lighting strike on a utility pole that lasted 6 hours. We have a 50 amp connection to the house circuit box and ran the Duro Max DS12000EH on propane.
We were able to run the whole house except the electric furnace and water heater. We did run the 220v water pump in our well. The generator performed exceptionally well and we are totally satisfied. I think if we had a longer outage we could shut off the water pump and run the electric water heater to get ready for showers.
We bought this for the power and duel fuel although I hope to use propane exclusively. Great product!
Purchase the unit at the sale price. Which is one third the cost of a Honda generator with similar wattage. It was delivered on time in excellent condition. It took me only a short time to mount the wheels and handles. The directions were simple. Rather than starting it up periodically, I put the leads of a trickle charger on the battery. Whereas, all I have to do is plug the trickle charger in once in a while to recharge the battery. Be forewarned that the manual requested an older classification of engine oil which is now ASSE M." Just recently the power went out for about 9 hours. The generator ran smoothly during the outage time using less than 20 pounds of propane in 9 hours. Allowing me to keep exterior security and interior lights on along with sewer pump hot water heater refrigerator three TV's furnace. The only thing kept off was the electric dryer and electric oven. For cooking the microwave works great. Overall I priced a standby generator installed with the same 12000 watts would cost me between $6500 to $7000. The cost of this unit including electrician cost 8 gadge cord three new 20 pound propane tanks propane generator cover and trickle charger was less than $2000. A great way to save five grand and live comfortably during a power outage.
