Overheating And Shutting Off
Last year I changed from a Honda 3500 to a B&S EXL 8000. When it arrived I set it up and ran it for about 15 minutes and checked the output. I did not have to run it last year because we had a quiet hurricane season. Last week I fired up the motor to test it and after 20 minutes of running with no load the oil light turned on and the motor turned off.

I had a B&S dealer check it out and change the oil and they said it was fine. I brought it home and ran it - again after 20 minutes... more

Briggs & Stratton 30210 - 8000 Watt Electric Start Portable Generator Review
Purchased this generator after a wicked ice storm in December that left us with no power for 2 days.

Since we live in a mobile home, our main concern was the pipes underneath freezing.

My grandson, who is a licensed electrician, wired it for saftey for us and the lineman.

We test ran it last week and had two tv's on, electric hot water heater, furnace, deep well pump and a few lights.

He checked the Amp draw and it showed 6-amps on one leg and two on the other. This unit was not... more

Great Generator
I have to say so far a great experience- the delivery was fast and on time.

I added oil and added gas; 1st pull and it started right up.

t was a very easy set up, I am just waiting for my electrician to hook up the 30-AMP power switch.

What A Relief
One week after installing transfer switch we lost power for 16hrs and I ran my generator and nearly everything in the house ran normally.

What a relief knowing that we are in good hands with B&S if another outage happens.

Thank God It Was All Covered
I got my generator, used it one time and let me tell you I am sorry I bought. It was so hard to start by the 2nd time I used it I had to take it in for service. They put a new carb on it, Thank God it was all covered. I wish I could get my money back but it is to late. I got stuck right up the you know what. Buy an electric start and not a B&S .

Best Bang For The Buck In Emergencies
I purchased this generator for emergency residential use. I connect it through a 30 amp 10 circuit Reliance manual transfer switch.

The generator powers almost all of my 3000 sq. ft. house except for the AC, ovens and dryer. I used it once for 10 straight days and it ran flawlessly.

Typically I would fill the gas tank up in the morning when I woke up and at night before we went to sleep, so I probably averaged 12 hour actual run times.

I have recommended this combination of... more

Kentucky Ice Storm 2009
I bought this generator after part of Hurricane Ike windstorm hit us in 2008.

So, when the ice storm hit in January 2009 I was ready. The generator performed flawlessly- I ran it 24 hours a day for eight days, the only time I stopped it was to gas up and change the oil.

It easily ran a refridgerator, a deep freeze, big screen tv, computer, washer, dryer, coffee pot, fireplace insert fan, 2 space heaters and 4 reading lights.

I used the 30 amp outlet with a cord that divided 4 ways, and... more

Life Saving
This generator has gotten us through at least 3 major New England storms where we have lost power for multiple days at a time.

While watching others throw away spoiled food and fix frozen pipes due to lack of heat, I realized that this generator has more than paid for itself.

The electric starter starts the engine quickly, and the engine runs very smoothly. Between the 7 gallon tank and the efficient engine, gas consumption is better than expected.

After the last ice storm, I... more

Upstate Ny Ice Storm 2008
All I can say is that I am glad I had this generator. It is so reliable and so easy to use.

The storm hit us with the normal warnings, but you know how that goes...YEAH RIGHT...

Well, it came and mother nature unleashed her fury on the Capital District. We lost power on Thursday the 11th of December.

I left work and came home to set up the generator for my partner. My house was filled with power cords, I rigged the furnace to run and set back and listened to trees snapping and... more

Reliable And Tough
I bought this generator to power my home through a storm driven power outage. I hooked it to the trickle charger after purchase, and only ran it once every few months for 20 minutes or so.

After 18 months of that routine, we were hit by Hurricane Ike. After the storm, I ran this machine for 360 hours straight. pausing only to refuel and change the oil.

It performed beautifully, powering two refrigerators, a wine cooler, three window unit AC units (two 10,000 BTU units and one 6,000 BTU... more

Great Generator
I received the generator last week. The delivery carrier was excellent with working on a time to drop it off that was convenient.

When I came home from work, I immediately unpacked and assembled the unit. The battery was even charged to start the generator.

It fired up on the first try. I let it idle and found some quartz lights to plug in and left it run for an hour.

It is a little on the loud side, but as long as I have well water and other house ammenities I could live with the... more
