Customer Product Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5★ by 16reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Just got it so rating reflects newness I just picked up the portable gas powered generator a week ago. I put oil and gas in it when I got it home, followed the startup directions and on the second pull it roared to life. I tested the appliances and tools that I'd be using with it and it seemed to handle the loads just fine. I don't like the position of the oil port(s). Very tough to get a container in there. Need to use a fairly long funnel. Other than that I'm pleased. 02/03/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Good size for Camping and Touring (motorcycle) After installing rubber cushions, filling with oil and adding gasoline this little generator started on the first pull! Ran smoothly with nominal exhaust noise and produced the 20 amps as advertised.Purchased for camping but also to run the furnace motor of small townhome should electricity ever fail. At 50-60 pounds it is very portable, and easily moved from garage to rear compartment of Jeep.Plan on starting every two weeks to keep everything running smoothly.Note the amount of oil (400ml) will actually overfill the sump so fill with care to avoid spills. 03/27/2014
Rated 1 out of 5★ by Quiet and quite the value! I bought this to take and use for power tools out on our property. I used a rotary hammer to drill holes in rock so I could set some rebar. It worked great! Put oil and gas in the generator and it started on the first pull! I have a larger version for our RV and knew it worked great. 04/18/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for the dollar I read the reviews on as many sights as I could before I got one, all of them were great, I love it, it works great and was well packaged, I fallowed the instructions and it fired up on the 2nd pull. I also have a honda 2000i generator, it has an ECO switch that let's it run on less noise and save gas if you don't need much power for small projects. I was hopping this was a more quiet generator since it had the same hours per gallon like the honda did, I will be calling the maker to see if there is a way to make it put out less power and more quiet for the small things I do. Still it's a great generator!! 03/29/2014
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Not bad for the price Ok for light work 03/22/2014
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Average generator Its a small average generator. We bought it for camping, just to hook up a couple lights and a radio. It works, but takes some manipulation to get it started and keep going. Turned off a couple times when we hooked things up to it, and the cord for the pull start broke as well (we had to tie it back together again to keep repulling and re starting it). it has been used once and i guess its more like you get what you paid for. We will be returning and purchasing a more durable generator. It is smaller than expected and is still just as loud as a generator would be expected to be. 05/29/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★ by small and efficient I purchased this item for my camping trips so as to have a source for lights and small appliances. It fits well with my gear and is easy to start. Runs quiet and is long on a tank of gas. Being a four stroke makes it convenient to operate plus much quieter. Great value! 05/25/2014
