    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bough the 5500 watt portable generator about a month... I bough the 5500 watt portable generator about a month ago as a power backup because I lose power frequently where I live. I have been performing test runs on itbecause the local Home Depot I purchased it from only allows a month for me to return it if there are any problems....so far so good. It seems very well built. I just put it into storage a few few days ago (drained the fuel, ran it dry and poured a tablespoon of oil into the spark plug hole) because I'm not sure when I will need it in the future. The only complaint I have is that the spark plug is difficult to reach. Other than that, I am very pleased.....

On the first day I ran it with a small load to make sure all of the outlets were working for a total of about five minutes. Two days later I was going to run it longer with the same load but when I plugged it the first thing (a lamp with a 60 watt bulb) the bulb lit and went out (bulb did not burn out) so I plugged in a small heater and it would not work. I tried the resetting the breaker and that didn't work. I tried the lamp and heater in the other 120v outlets and they worked fine so I guess the generator will have to be taken to a repair shop which really defeats the reason for having a generator which is power outages. If my New generator is in the shop and my power goes out I guess I'm screwed. I'm guessing the problem is cheap parts and a lack of quality control. This was supposed to be an upgrade from my 15 year old 3200 watt generator that I've used many times over the years without a problem. (it has carb issues now and I can't find the correct replacement carb)., I am very disappointed
