Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my application. I bought this to serve as a home backup generator. I love that it has <5% THD, so it's safe for electronics. The battery start is great. I won't use the remote start, but I might do a remote stop. The receptacle covers are nice and should last for a good while. I plan to crank it up very soon and I can't wait to run it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does what it needs but major oversights As others have noted the nema 14-50 outlet is positioned that all plugs in the market will run into the wheel. Requires the wheel to be removed. This really needs to be addressed. Oil manual says 1.1 qt and that’s what it comes with but is just enough to show on the dipstick. Ok for break in but should be clearer how much oil needed for a whole fill. Buttons for the display are really difficult to cycle. But otherwise nice to have. Floating vs bonded neutral should be part of the manual for using the 50amp with a transfer switch. Just easier to find. In the end easy set feels solid. Appreciate the low thd at the power and price point would be 4 star if the plug worked with common cords which are all 90 degrees. 5 star if the oil didn’t make you worry your gonna burn up a new generator. Happy with product but doing custom 50amp wire for welder and transfer switch is not appropriate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for so much power After completing a recommended break-in of the engine, (found online), I plugged the generator into the service panel and it worked flawlessly powering the entire house, including the Central HVAC. The engine runs great, love the remote start, the power is stable and the sound is just about 74 db at 20 feet. The wheel is right under the 50 amp outlet and hampers plugging the big power cable in without putting tight bend in it. I had an extended axle made so the wheel can un-pin and slide away from the frame by 1¼" so the cable could hang normally. Otherwise this generator was well worth the money. Oh yes, shipping was very fast from Westinghouse.
