Ran My House For 3 Days On It

Wonderful
The Honda generator is wonderful...excellent quality construction and all!!!

The wireless remote is an add-on and is not of the same engineering and quality. To utilize it you really still need to access the machine except for quick stops and starts.

Electric generators is an excellent supplier who filled their commitments very professionally.

I hope I never need another generator but if I did I certainly would return to Electric Generators Direct.
