The generator was damaged when it arrived, the box was not. I almost returned it but decided to try it. It works ok and I can beat the damage area out. It seems to have shipped out this way. I recommend for the ease of use.

I needed a generator that had the ability to run longer than 8 hours on a tank of fuel and to not have that fuel degrade the carburetor, or in the tank. I chose this unit because it could run for 8 hours if necessary on gasoline, or 2 1/2days on 100# of propane. The low oil shutdown protects the eng...

It's just the best generator I've used out camping in the middle of nowhere and in the mountains. It is very simple,quiet, and better than I expected, for real.

The product came with all the parts required for assembly. The instructions were reasonably clear and in pretty good translation. I bought this model because I really wanted the option to use propane and not have to deal with storing gasoline since the generator will get only occaisional use. The as...

Generator started right away using electric start. It preferred mid position on the choke. It is quieter and smaller than expected. At about 100lb, it's relatively easy to roll around. No issue when I connected a 1500w heater.

Have to ask where is the ground wire for the battery? Started using LP and pulling the rope as the elec didn't work. Took about 10 pulls and it lit up. Would be nice if they included the elec start in the manual Should be a good unit once I get the electric start working.

Bought this generator so I could run it on propane and store generator in my basment without creating a fire hazard. Autostart features is also nice to have especially for cold weather usage. Generator started easily on battery and powered my gas furnace, gas water heater, dehumidifier and freezer...

For households with Ladies Only - the electric start is fabulous! I have a bad back and just cannot yank on those recoil start engines that are so prevalent - even though they are much less expensive than an electric start model. Particularly like the optional fuel capabilities of this model. Plan t...

Came complete with all parts and was easy to put together. Fired up on first try on unleaded and ran for a hour with small load. Then tested on propane with no issue. Just recently lost power for 30hrs or so ran it for about 15hrs powering fridge, freezer, tv and a few lights with no issues. Went th...

I bought this as a backup for my home electrical system. I liked the idea of having the dual power so that I didn't have to rely on one type of fuel. The generator works great, but the directions need work. For example, the white negative battery cable is not connected to the battery when shipped an...

how loud is the generator?

I have heard many noisy generators. This one maybe slightly quieter than most but it is still pretty noisy.

Less than most generators.

If you are using a scale of high, medium, and low I would say medium. You will hear it.

Not at all,but I didn't like the fact that the handles, wheels,and the rubber boots for the leg stand were missing. All part of the wheel kit!

i was surprised to me its quite when running on propane. i have never ran it on gas
