Q: Hi Jim I bought a Powermate PM0105007 - 5000 watt gas power electric generator from home depot. The engine is a RATO made in china. Am I going to be ok with this?
by John Miller from Washington on January 22, 2012

A: Yes, you should be find with this engine. Engines from China have been in the US for 8 - 9 years and have really had no major issues over the last 5 years and parts are typically accessible if needed.

The key is to do proper maintenance such as running the unit every week to every couple of weeks to keep the internals proper lubricated and prevent moisture build-up.

This also gives piece of mind knowing it is going to work when you need it.

Proper oil changes and using clean fresh fuel with a fuel stabilizer is extremely important.

Read the owner's manual from cover to cover as there is usually a ton of information that is extremely helpful.

Just For Power Tools So Far
Fortunately, we have not had a power outage. But after getting my Powermate generator and reading the owner's manual, I started it and gave it a test run. The generator started easily and ran quietly. After allowing it to run awhile, I connected a couple of loads. Each worked as it was supposed to and the generator operated properly.

I am well pleased, but hope that I do not have to use the generator for emergency power anytime soon. I hope it will just be used as a portable power... more

Buy It
I could not find replacement parts for my 37 year old Honda generator. So I started looking around and found this one.

This is for a cabin in the woods, it runs lights and T.V. and the best part- it starts on the 2nd pull. The only setback it is a a bit noisy, so I would not take it to a pubic camp ground. I put this in my shed about 40 feet away and it works perfect.

It was a good buy.

Perfect Size
Have been looking for one this size for some time that was priced right and I finally found it. I have a bigger one by pro force (think it was made by Powermate). It was getting a little heavy for my age and I have had perfect service from it. Haven't used the new one much but it starts good, runs good and powers all that I use it for. If it gives me the service of my old one I will be very pleased. I think I got a great deal on this and liked the service and speed of shipping of this from... more

Powermate Pm0101207
Bought this as a back up to my big generator, so I could run small things when I did not want to run the big one which uses more gas if for some reason long term power is out. This is for emergencies only so when I got it I tested it, ran it. Had it run a microwave that takes 950w to power (it is a 600 w cooking microwave but if you look at the back of any microwave it tells you how much power it needs coming in). So when I turned on the microwave the generator slowed for a second or two and... more

What A Difference
I had the 2 cycle 1000 watt unit, it was a piece of junk. I took a chance on this 4 cycle unit. I love it, starts easy, runs great, good buy.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Quiet, Price
Cons: Heavy
