Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unboxing and Initial Test Everything looks good out of the box. Wheels went on easy (thanks to the stand it ships on) and the delivery guys waited to help me unload it off the stand. If I didn't have help getting it off the shipping stand, it would have been very difficult. Moving the generator around is surprisingly easy given its size and weight. Opened oil drain valve and washer. There was at least a cup of oil that came out. I don't like the design of the drain plug here as it basically spills onto the bracket and you're supposed to place a pan under the feet to catch the oil (with feet inside pan getting oily). Probably best to use a valve with drain hose in place of drain plug. Filling with oil is a little awkward, be sure to pour slowly as recommended in manual. Dipstick is a little awkward, but not terrible. Initially I tried to start with propane but it was idling very rough. Ran it on gas for about an hour. Tried propane again and it started without an issue. I will cold start on propane next time to make sure there’s not an issue. The manual displays the propane hose with an additional regulator, but does not have one on the hose included with the generator. The regulator is on the generator already and the manual is likely incorrect. The Low/Smart Idle setting dropped the voltage to 190 and the frequency to 40 hz. Portability and noise level are good given the size and output. Very maneuverable on hard surface. Grass or soft surfaces may prove more difficult. I will continue to update this review as I use it more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Generator I purchased this in April 2021. Just had it completely installed by an electrician. It is wonderful. I am so happy to have this at my home. I will no longer have to worry about power outages. It give me a sense of safety.

Arrived extremely well packaged on a pallet. Followed basic instructions to setup and it turned on first time without a glitch. I've connected it to my house via a transfer switch and it powers the whole house including 2.5 ton generator, refrigerators, six rooms with Tv/computers/etc, kitchen, garage, patio etc without skipping a beat. The electrician doing the connection asked to make sure the AC was running cause he couldn't tell that much current was getting drawn from the gen. Hopefully it performs well during a storm outage, time will tell. Very impressed so far. And its also not too loud, would be much quieter once i build my custom shed.
