- Reliable in all weather....sometimes short on power Review by R Foster
Price Value Quality
I live at the end of a rural electric circuit and frequently I'm without power. This is my second generator and I am most pleased with this one. My first was an 8500w which seemed to have a better continuous load feed but was hard to get started (always bad weather of course). However, it lasted only a few years and the generator locked up.
This one starts easily, even in bad weather! The fuel consumption is much better than my old one and it supplies enough power to run my whole hose and shed as long as we don't use too many 220 circuits at the same time. We backfeed our house through a dryer 220v outlet. We have 4 bed home with 2 1/2 bath, 3 TV's, electric stove, water heater, microwave, 2 Frig, Freezer, central gas heat with big fan, and run a wireless internet site with at least 10 radio's and/or computers running 24/7. We occasionally see the lights dim but for what we're using, I think the generator does great. I would certainly recommend this unit.
