I'm so surprised this brand is still on the market...bought one a few years ago. After sending it back and receiving my third one that still did not work properly, it sits as a monument to my stupidity. They would not honor the warranty. I've lived off the grid for almost 30 years now, so I've gone thru my share of generators and pumps, they don't last forever. I was also a small engine mechanic for the Forest Service for years. This is a cheap knock off of a real generator. I have gone back to Honda. If you want to pay $900. bucks for a boat anchor be my guest... make sure you drain the oil and gas out of it before you chuck it into a body of water.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good when/if it runs. After researching several different generators for use on our boat, we ended up going with this one. Generator was a little louder than I expected but still reasonable. Started it up after a couple tries and it ran well for a couple of hours. Went to start it the next day and would not start. Starter turned over just fine and even tried plugging the battery in even longer to make sure it was well charged but had no luck. Ended up having to return and rent a Honda temporarily. The remote start never worked at all. I even work for Home Depot and was very disappointed in the quality of the product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lifan 3200w generator I wanted to try out one of the new breed of fuel injected models due to higher fuel efficiency and ease of use (no choke to apply). I ordered this through HD's mail program. Took a bit longer to arrive than I anticipated but then I am in Hawaii. The unit arrived eventually. soot stains on the muffler exit confirm it was tested at some point by the factory. However, after adding oil (much less went in than the manual called for, it only took an amount which was shy by over 100cc). and fresh gas, I attempted both manual and electric start. Over a period of over a week, it refused to start. Removed spark plug and sniff and visual inspection showed dry plug, no evidence of any fuel going into the chamber. The manual says EFI may not work properly if battery is low, so I plugged it in with the provided trickle charger over a week then tried it again; no go. It has never run, so I returned it. General appearance was chintzy, plastic looks and feels cheap and does not fit well. Spark plug access limited. Heavy for its size, difficult to maneuver by yourself, although with this output rating I'm not surprised nor complaining. My prior genset was an EU3000i, and I currently own 'dumb' generators as well as inverters. I got rid of the EU3000i because it was too heavy for a single person to manhandle. The Lifan is a much better alternative, except it refused to run. Without a manual carb or choke setup, it is difficult to diagnose when you have obvious fuel delivery problems, a generator should be ready to go anytime and not require a few days of trickle charging first. I'm not saying EFI is a bad thing, but it should not be contingent upon nor require a topped off battery. In an emergency it should still start with a dead battery and pull starter. Highly not recommend this product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing. Too noisey I had high expectations of a inverter generator EFI engine with electric remote start and waited patiently for it to arrive. The box and manual said with battery trickle charger but no so. But I had read that on another review. If the battery is in a low state of charge the unit will not start or put out power even if you use the recoil start. The manual says you can "back feed" through the 12 volt output on the front to charge the battery. NOT SO. If the remote receiver if left on over night like if you shut it off for the night remotely in 6.5 hours the battery will be too low to start the generator. so the remote is basically worthless. With the output and size of the engine it should run my travel trailers AC very easilly and QUIETLY. It's every bit as loud as the claimed 60db. That was the killer. there was also a small plastic part floating around inside that I determined was to hold on the air cleaner. When I ordered it there were only two reviews and both were negative but I wanted to see for myself. BUT my buying experience from HD could not have been better!!! JoBo1943

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy this I purchased this product online, it arrived work for about five minutes then shut down and will not start again . If you want something reliable go with the other brand, portable generator should be reliable enough to take it with you on your trip and not worry about it breaking.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Generator !!!!!! The Lifan Generator works very well. Since trying it, I have noticed it starts and runs with ease. I would recommend this for anyone needing a medium (quiet) generator for outdoor use. The remote starts is a great feature.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but has a few flaws ==== First impressions ==== All green! Mostly plastic. Very heavy for it's size. Pull handle and wheels look wimpy. Impressively packaged. Thick user manual. ==== Assembly ==== Easy and quick. All you have to do is add the engine oil and gas and connect a battery cable inside the unit. The specs say it takes 32 ounces of oil, but I was only able to add 16 ounces. Either the spec is wrong or there was already 16 ounces of oil in the motor. I did not try to drain the motor to find out. ==== Operation ==== I first started the generator using the key switch and it started right away. There was a lot of oily smoke for a few minutes, so I suspect the box had been on it's side for a time causing some engine oil to enter the combustion chamber. I had noticed before that there may have been some oil in the engine during shipment. The engine speed wavers a bit all the time but the instruments I connected to the output showed no significant change in voltage or frequency. I then tried the remote start feature and it went well until I accidentally pressed the start button while the engine was already running. A high pitch rattle occurred, which indicated to me that the starter was briefly enabled even with the engine already running. This would seem to be a bug in the control software. There should be no reason to allow the starter to operate while the engine is running. When I switched off or on the 50% external load, the engine noise changed appropriately. And the meters showed no significant change in voltage or frequency. The distortion looked to be within the 2% specified as maximum. Now the bad news. When I tried to start the generator manually, I could not start it. I finally decided to check the spark plug, especially after seeing all the smoke at first run. It was fouled badly and very dark. When I replaced it with the new spare spark plug that was included, the engine could be started manually fine. See the photo for a comparison of the new spare and installed spark plugs. While attempting to change the spark plug through the small access hole provided, I was unable to attach the plug's wire completely. There just wasn't enough room to be sure it was on tight. I removed several screws that hold together the two halves of the main case and spread the halves enough to reach the spark plug wire. See the photos. The case does have two small wheels for transporting the unit, but the wheels are way too small unless you are only moving it on a solid floor. Outside on my grass lawn, where it is supposed to be used anyway, it was very difficult to move. The extendable handle worked adequately, but would be better if it were curved or angled upward, otherwise you have to bend down to pull the generator anywhere. ==== Miscellaneous ==== I was impressed with the user manual. It is huge and it does contain a complete wiring diagram and an exploded view parts diagram. It does not have a parts list however. ==== Summary ==== This is a well-performing generator with some minor flaws that should not be there. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
