Good unit, plenty of power
Reviewed in the United States on October 1, 2017
Solid unit. I put a propane conversion kit on it and have not run it on gas. It starts quickly and runs smoothly. Pretty loud, so make friends with your neighbors haha. I have it connected to a Generac Homelink transfer switch and this thing will pretty much run the whole house, minus the central AC of course. Doesn't have a wattage output display, and I can't figure out the hour meter - it appears to be a simple timer and doesn't appear to be cumulative, hence docking a star.
1- Get a propane kit, gasoline is a pain. Get a couple 40# tanks to go with it. Propane stores forever and won't gum up the carb, I a guy who went to start their generator only to have it crap out on him and it's most likely because he didn't maintain the gasoline and screwed up the carb. They were without power for a week, staring at their generator.
2- Get a decent transfer switch. Don't plug this into your dryer outlet. You will kill someone.
3- Ground it properly! An 8' grounding rod is only $12
4- Do all this well before an emergency is expected.
5- For the love of Pete, DON'T RUN IT IN YOUR HOUSE OR GARAGE. We had like 10 people die in their houses after Irma because they didn't know running an internal combustion engine in an area without proper ventilation is a bad thing.. No, opening the doors and windows will not be enough. It will kill you in minutes and by the time you figure out what's happening you're already dead (one member of a family that died made it as far as the front sidewalk, too late.). Get a chain, bolt it to the ground, whatever, just leave it outside.
Hope this helps!
