Q: Does it come with oil already in the unit and also what kind of gas do I use?

by Kara from Washington on January 05, 2014

A: Thanks for your inquiry.

The unit does not come with oil in the engine but is supplied with a quart in the box. Below is a link to the Owner's Manual which covers the fuel requirements.

Great Generator
The generator arrived before the projected arrival date.(In Texas) It arrived in perfect condition. After filling it with oil and gasoline, it started on the 2nd or 3rd tug of the rope. The fuel burn in less that expected. It ran last night for 9 and half hours and was still indicating approx 1/4 full of fuel. I am well pleased with everything about it. If I had to complain about anything it would be that it might be a tad loud. As I listen to other generators in the neighborhood, I... more

Good Generator For The Price
I have one of these for maybe 6 yrs now, i have broken it in correctly, kept a clean air filter & changed oil as specified with synthetic oil & have had no issue's whatsoever, always check your frequency for best performance & power quality.

Rv Use
This generator is great for use with a camper. It is way quieter than my 7000 watt generator and this one will run my ac unit and microwave at the same time. Very good set up for rv use.

Quiet Vs Noisy
I bought this generator for my RV on the basis of Mike's review that it was quiet. I guess everything is relative and what I didn't pick up on is that he was comparing it to a 7000 watt generator. I already own a 6250 watt generator but, it doesn't have a 30 amp outlet for a RV plus I already knew what kind of decibels it emitted and that wouldn't be acceptable in a setting where there were other RVs around. So, I anticipated the arrival of my new generator with heightened expectations. I did... more

Bob,
Please remember that any modification done to the generator, such as modifying the muffler or installing an aftermarket part will void the warranty. Also remember that this is an air-cooled generator and running it inside an enclosure could be a fire hazard and cause premature failure of the generator.

This was what I was looking for. Powers my 25 ft trailer with air conditioner. The noise level is good. Starts with one pull. 30 amp circuit is perfect for my trailer. Would recommend this unit to anyone.

Average Joe Homeowner
I ordered this generator for emergencies. It arrived fast and in very good condition.
After simple assembly, I filled with oil and gas. Set the choke, pulled the cord once and it started.
I must admit I was surprised, but that gave me great deal of confidence in the product.
I have not run under full load, but have had small appliances plugged in and they work fine.
I would not hesitate to order another product.

Works Great
Building a 16x38 cabin back in the woods and needed power before I install electric. Works great running compressors, table saw and charging drills all at once. would defiantly purchase again.

Great Generator
I use this unit to power a 12,500 BTU camper A/C unit. Assembly of the wheels and carrying handle only took a couple of hours. After reading and following the directions for getting the unit ready for operation, I easily had the generator up and running. It quickly started on the very first pull of the starter cord. Voltage regulation is excellent even with varying load currents.

Not Good News
Received my generator in good time, only problem was the case on the generator was busted. You promptly sent a pickup for it and was picked up. Received the new generator a couple of days later. Serviced it and ran it on a light load for two hours. everything was fine. Changed oil and used it the new day and after three hours of use it quit producing power. Its now at a repair shop getting repaired. Hopefully under warranty. So my experience with this brand has not been good, though no fault... more

Sorry to hear about the issue with the generator. We have sold many of these units and I personally have not come across one that will not produce power. Hopefully it is a minor issue and that it can get repaired quickly. Briggs has an excellent warranty and they will be more than happy to assist you further with getting this unit repaired.
