Great Value
Found this on line and could not pass up the deal. Installed the generator the following week and the wife feels she is more secure and safer with back-up power, just in case. Happy wife happy life.

Tried to purchase a second unit and they were not listed any more......need one for the in-laws house....any way to get another?

Generator Is Okay
The generator work but doesn't exercise as little as I wanted. It runs every week on a day of my choice. I wanted it to test run once a month. This would save fuel and wear and tear on the unit since it is used only for back-up. The installation cost were a lot more than I expected and I installed it myself to reduce the cost.
