Rated 4 out of 5 by from WGen5500 Generator was easy to set up and started on the second pull. Quieter than my previous generator. I also appreciated that the generator came with oil and an oil spout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built unit. Right out of the box the generator seemed well built, nice wheels, strong frame. I slowly added the oil so that it didn’t overflow the funnel, poured gas in and it started easily on the second pull. After it ran for a few minutes I plugged in a few higher watt items which ran flawlessly. The next day I shut off my houses power and ran the generator back through my panel. So far everything worked as expected. Only time will tell as to the durability, especially when the power goes out and you need it most.
