Good generator but needs much better labeling
Inexpensive inverter generator, runs well within significant limits. Made in China if that is an issue for you. Covered with labels, many of which conflict. Some say 2200 max watts and 1800 running watts but another label says 1.6 KVA which means 1600 watts of "pure" loads like an electric heater. Actual watts available for things like motors would be less. So which is it? Good question. 3 labels have dates on them, but they vary by one year. Hard to say when actually manufactured. There are other inconsistencies in the labels as well. Other than that, it was easy to set up and start. Test meters showed good voltage regulation at various loads and a steady 60 cycles per second +/- 1 % or so. Works fine with electronics. My control panel does not match marketing picture. It has no idle switch and is always on auto idle when not under load. This is a problem for heavy loads because the generator can overload before it has a chance to get up to speed. If that happens, it stops. For example, an electric heater that draws 1500 watts killed the generator if it was turned immediately to "high." If the heater was started on low the generator immediately picked up speed and powered the heater. If the heater was then switched to high the generator went to even higher rpm and still kept the heater running. Same for a power circular saw. Being a series wound motor, it has a real big power demand to start running ... killed the generator which was idling. However, a real quick pull and release of the saw trigger got the generator running fast, and then a steady pull on the saw trigger kept the saw running. My main concern was powering my fridge during a power outage. It is labeled 6.5 amps max. When tested I started with the "Power" button in the fridge turned off, but lights and displays in the fridge were working off the generator. When I turned the fridge "On" with the switch in the fridge, the lights in the fridge dimmed down as I heard the generator outside pick up speed while the fridge compressor started. All went well though and the fridge started to cool. Once up and running the fridge had a draw of only 100 watts or so. So motor starting is probably the biggest issue of this generator when it is on idle. It does not tolerate more than a quarter second of overload when at low rpm. I also thought it was a bit noisy but generator sound ratings are usually measured from 20 feet away or more. At that distance you can easily talk over it. Still, for a great price it does what I need to have it do. The company just needs to do a much better job of getting the right labels on the equipment and up to date pictures of their products in their marketing.

No economy switch. Idle mode full time.
I saw it half price, so I bought 2. One had a broken air cleaner and a screw rolling around inside, no big deal for me. The BIG problem is that they didn't put an economy/auto idle switch on these. Both pictures show generators that have them, but the ones I got don't. They idle, and when I would try to use a 5 amp tool it would either kill the engine or trigger an overload before the rpms woul go up. They put reset buttons on here, but they do nothing. I have to stop the engine and restart.

works great, GREAT price.

this generator does everything I need, and I didn't have to spend a fortune on any features I did NOT need. 1800 running watts. no remote control, and no parallel hookup available. I didn't need those. so when I found this model for less than half of the amount of the loaded one, I was very happy

Green Machine Go!

There was a little confusion because it's called a 2000, in the Box I found basically a 2200 inverter generator I was very pleased it's a very simple to operate. a very simple-minded working generator it's quiet it does exactly what you wanted to do make fantastic electricity after you add gasoline and oil to the motor. it's stronger than your standard 2000 watt inverter generator such as Pulsar Powermate or Honda my experience so far is that it's an excellent purchase for the price. I would gladly do it again should this one break or fall off while I'm traveling down the road or someone Idiot steal it. with this generator running at a basic idle the runtime seems to be about 8 to 9 hours I'm totally fine with that it ramps up when more is plugged in so far I have plugged in my heavy-duty Dyson vacuum and it ran it perfectly probably will outlive the Dyson vacuum what I recommend purchasing this generator absolutely I have a Honda1000, a Powermate 2000 a predator 3500 and this seems to hold its own amongst all of them for Quality fit finish and price point. However I have not tried to parallel it simply because I haven't tried to I'm sure in time I may but it is my experience that a 2200 watt generator inverter is capable of power and almost everything in your house less your hot water heater or any 220 Appliance which would also include the stuff you would think the needs lots of power but may not such as your washing machine your vacuum your air conditioner all kinds of things that we need quite a bit of power it seems to work just fine.

can't go wrong

got this to bring out on my boat to keep the batteries charged by plugging in a battery charger so i don't go dead while playing my radio. my last generator was a 1000 watt 2 stroke and i could even set the charger on 12 amps without the charger shutting down so i had to set it to 8 amps to work. well that generator started running rough so i seen this for $236 with free shipping so i said why not..i just tested it today and that same charger ran on 12 amps not problem. i wanted to step it up a notch and try my big charger and it worked like a champ..the same as house power, i even set it on the 200 amp engine start setting and even tho the dial said it was only drawing 40 amps it is still impressive..this shale work just fine..i just hope the durability is just as good..it is pretty quiet but does got a little weight to it

Great Product

Easy to set-up (just add oil and gas). Started up quickly and ran steadily for over 4 hours on a tank of gas. Worked great. Noise level was acceptable. Got it for power outages at the house. Ran the internet and my coffee maker. Could have run the refrigerator, but the power outage was short enough that I did not need to do so. Came with all the tools needed to maintain it as well. Even a spare spark plug.

A Great Buy..

I have several generators and what I like about this one, in particular, is the price. my advice is always with most any generator is to completely check it out making sure it does what you want it to do. don't leave it in the box till your ready to use it. ( load test to your complete satisfaction. And read the manual. sometimes we think we know it all.. this one works fine. I will be using it around 1700 watts.

1. Look at the pictures?! I see 2 regular plugs
by Franny
2. Yes two conventional 3 prong outlets, plus one for 12 v battery charging (an adapter comes with the generator), and a USB connection also.

1. From what I've read the unit loses power quickly with altitude. It will operate, but probably produce well below the max rating. You can contact Lifan in Arkansas USA headquarters, they are good to deal with.
