Previous generator of 3600 Watts malfunctioned and sold. This time I decided on a smaller model because in case of emergency you just need a fridge and some small appliances. It's more important to have a small footprint and light weight while spending only $400. It is stored in the garage and doesn't have wheels to move it around. I found the Magic Chef Washer Dolly (Model # MCSLB04P) for $20 as the best option and used cable ties to connect the two. I'd recommend the manufacturer to add 2 bottles of 1/2 Qt (instead of 0.6 qt) so you can empty the 1st one and then a little bit as necessary - it took me six times to fill/measure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits My Need This is exactly the generator I was needing for my winter time camping. It'll run my microwave or my coffee maker (not at the same time but then I knew that before I bought it). I've cut my fuel consumption 80% by only getting what I needed for the season. Will go back to the 6,500 watt when summer gets here and I have to have more power, but for now, this fits the need. Bought a cheap wheel kit $25 made for another brand of generator that had the exact size tubular frame, 1-1/4" OD, and added it to the generator and can handle it with ease!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Pro: I bought this based on other's reviews and previous very favorable experience with Generac commercial equipment. Meets my needs, will run a 15 Amp circular saw. Starts 1st or 2nd pull every time. Con: The kill switch wires are vulnerable to small puppies who like to chew on stuff. Easy repair but had to shut off the fuel valve to let it run out of gas to stop it. Spliced new wires and shielded them and tucked them up out of the way with zip ties. A bit louder than anticipated, but it's for a construction site, so not an issue. Dribbles oil out of the air filter housing drain (blowby from rings not seated yet?) if run under load for more than 20 minutes. Other: Solid build quality. Wish it had 12V DC out for jumping a car battery. 5V DC USB power would be a plus.
