Rated 4 out of 5 by from hgca3000 good generator for back-up power a little noise could be quieter.but for what you pay its a good product. allways starts with the 1st or 2nd pull just remember to pull the choke and i highly rec you get a spare recoil starter there not that well built just dont pull to hard and it will be ok. and runs very well below 0 deg c. and like i said its a good product good price you can get 4 of these generators for the price of 1 high end generator.

is this generator good for an rv,camping

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes and no. Yes, it probably has enough power to run a microwave oven and a toaster but not necessarily at the same time. It will be a bit noisy. If real quiet is what you want then go for one of the 2kw ones made by Honda. They are four times the price of this one but extremely quiet. This one's more bang for the buck.

Will this product efficiently run my sump pump?

Asked by: Anonymous
Sump pumps generally have motors that are 1/2 HP or less and this generator would have no trouble at all.

Adequate power for a remote building site?

I want to run a 7.25 skill saw and drill at a remote building site. I would also like to be able to recharge my 18v Ryobi tools with the Ryobi charger on site. Would this generator be adequate for this purpose?
Asked by: Anonymous
What you need to do is fill out the chart that The Home Depot has to see what unit you need . the formula is amps times volts equals watts. Add up all your watts of all the tools you will beusing on the unit and buy accordingly.

Is it capable of adding a electric start ?

Asked by: Anonymous
No, and it has been recommended you get a spare starting cord in case the one on it breaks. This is a good idea for any emergency generator that's got a pull start.

can it run a Dewalt compressor

Depends on size. the formula to work this out is Volts Times Amps equals Watts. Get good headroom too as a cpompressor demands alot on start up.
