    Right size for the right job The Buffalo Tools 4000 Watt LP Generator exceeded my expectation, the unit arrived as scheduled, but unfortunately, just one day after power was restored following Hurricane Irene. Worked great with the recent Noreaster. Setup was relativity easy. 20 fluid oz of SAE10W-30 oil must be added before operating this generator for the first time. This unit ships with no oil. Always ground the generator before use. Use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) in highly conductive areas such as metal decking or steel work. GFCIs are available in-line with some extension cords. Attach the gas pipeline to GAS INLET and gas supply source 20lb LP tank standard grill tank. Turn the fuel valve to the "On" position. Move the choke lever to the "Closed/Choke" position. Slowly pull on the recoil starter handle, until a slight resistance is felt. Then pull briskly to start the engine. Gently return the cord into the generator to avoid damage to the starter or housing. To power sensitive electronic equipment such as TVs, DVD players, stereos, desktop computers or laptop computers the use of an appropriate line conditioner and/or surge protector is highly recommended. NEVER use a generator inside a home or a garage, EVEN IF the doors and windows are open. ONLY USE OUTSIDE and far way from windows, doors and vents leading into an enclosed area. Using a generator indoors can kill you in minutes. The generator produces an exhaust that contains carbon monoxide. This is a poison you cannot see or smell. Please be careful. One 20lb tank lasted approximately 7+ hours. This unit ran flawlessly for 5+ consecutive days with only a 2 -3 hour break each day. I was able to power the following simultaneously 1 Refrigerator 1 Freezer 1 Well pump Several lights TV DVD Audio system Internet 75 gal aquarium filter and heater I highly recommend The Buffalo Tools 4000 Watt LP Generator for anyone that has moderate to low power need for short periods.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I live in NJ. After Hurricane Irene (2011), I needed a generator to run household essentials in the event of another storm. This came just in time for Superstorm Sandy (2012). Followed directions to fill with 20 oz. SAE 10W-30 oil and it was ready for work (you'll need a funnel). ONE ISSUE... As propane is used, the tank temp lowers. If it's cold enough outside (in the 40's or below)... the tank will freeze up and the generator shuts down. Problem solved by keeping a reserve tank in the house. Love the fact I do not have to drain gas after use! 8-10 hours of power per tank. Unit is large enough to handle refrigerator, sump, furnace fan (forced hot air), chest freezer, TV and a couple low watt lights. Could also charge our phones and laptops as needed. If not hiring an electrician to connect to your panel, pick up 2 "Heavy Duty 12/3" extension cords and surge protective power strips. There is no 220 outlet. Just two 110 outlets capable of 15-20 amps each. As with all generators, be sure to properly ground and do not use indoors. Keep it out of the rain (use under cover or wait 'til the rain stops). Great product!

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    You can always find propane. It doesn't spoil and is easier to haul around. This generator starts on the second pull is easy to move because the fuel tank is separate so no gas spills or smell. I have it mounted on the rear of my fifth wheel with twin 20# tanks. This should give me 30 hours of operation when in the boonies. The unit is quality plus and they give you a toll free number for assistance if needed. I am more than happy with this purchase.

    Oil gushed out and made a big mess

    After following the startup directions, I set the choke and pulled the cord. It didn't start on the first 3 pulls but a bunch of oil came out of the air filter - looked like chocolate milk. I got it running and it blew a bunch of smoke out the exhaust. Also more oil came out. I called the manufacturer - they said it's not uncommon for oil to come out. I'm taking mine back for a refund - I'm done with it. If you buy this unit, please put something under it in case oil leaks out like mine did. I'm going to have to pay someone to clean the mess up.
