    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the Week! I live in the Sierra foothills of California. We recently had a series of power shut-offs by the electric company in order to avoid wild fires. This cool generator allowed us to run our home like we had electricity (with the exception of dishwasher and washer/dryer - which I could live without). My only negative comment is that the handles are not as handy as could be. Other than that I have no complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Haven't Used It To Power Anything Yet, But........ ....after I put oil & gasoline in it, it started. So far I'm happy. I'll know more after this winter, but Generac was my first choice for an emergency power source.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work Horse I have been using this generator for 5 Years now. Cant recommend enough. Starts immediately every time, in sub zero cold or 100 degree heat waves. I have used it as a backup for my house during outages and as a main power source for construction.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product The biggest thing about this generator was the ease of operation once i finished installing the wheels and handle. The electric start makes is so easy to start the generator. The generator provided power to spare in my house. the downside is that the installation instructions for the wheels and handle was very small to read, especially, when i was in the dark. I was also missing two nuts to mount the handle. i ended up temporarily installing some other bolts/nuts until i could replace the nuts. there's a need to be more specific as to how long and how often to charge the battery.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator but... I like this unit a lot. It powers my entire house and I have frequent power outages. My only gripe is the handle and wheels. The rubber hand holds slide right off and there is only one pin to.secure the folding handle which feels kind of cheap. It's hard to roll this across an uneven surface. Maybe it was only intended for city people.to roll on cement.in the garage. Trying to get it from the shed to the house across an uneven yard kind of sucks. Guess I'll have to either build it its own house or get it a tougher cart to mount it in

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flimsy wheels This is a brand new product for me, I’ve only had it for a few days. My power was out for about 36 hours and I used this generator the entire time. It started right up and ran fine. I am not a fan of how weak and flimsy the wheels are, I don’t think they will last long.
