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.

Does The Job!
This little powermate 3000 has met all expectations. We have it on hand for outages, have used it 3 times in the past year. It starts easily every time. I run it thru a transfer switch, it keeps the heating system, fridge, kitchen lights and microwave powered in the kitchen. It also provides lighting in two bathrooms. It has been no trouble.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price

Quite Generator
I love this generator. I first purchased a 5,000 watt generator and was very disappointed with the noise level. I returned that unit and purchased the Powermate 3000. I was worried that it would not have enough power to run everything that I wanted, but I was willing to rotate each appliance in order to have a quieter unit. It turns out that my appliances were new energy efficient models and therefore 3,000 watts (3,750 surge) was enough to run everything I needed at a much lower noise... more

Good Purchase
Had a little delay in shipping. Delivery truck with lift gate was a good investment. Unpacked, set up in about 10 minutes. Oil was a pain to get in, oil stick had no measurement on it to tell you when it crank case was full. Filled with gas, chock set, one pull up and running strong. Quieter than I expected. We are ready for the next big one.

Nice Little Generator, A Few Design Flaws.
The Powermate 3000 seems to be a nice little generator with some good features but a few design shortcomings. First, the good news the 3000 starts easily, is not by any means quiet but neither is it overly loud, is light enough for two people to easily lift into a van, SUV, or pickup and it has an L14-30R outlet which allows easy connection a 30 amp transfer switch (I installed a Reliance Control 30216A, watched the videos, it was easy DIY).
In my short testing period, the generator... more

Good Generator
Generator is well worth it. It had no problem running all the power for our 30ft travel trailer. Started on the first pull. Very good on fuel. I would recommenced this unit you if you are in need for something like this.

As Promised...
It arrived ahead of your promised delivery date.
Even the delivery guy called early one morning because he was ahead of schedule as well.
Then off the truck, onto a cart, into the garage, read the instructions, added 'Mobil 1' 10W30 as required.
It took 15 minutes to install the wheel kit, rolled it outside, added gasoline, set the choke & throttle, pushed the primer gizmo twice and pulled the starter cord easily.
Too slow the first time, then faster the 2nd time and it started as... more

Perfect Gen
This generator is the perfect size for powering all my 110 volt circuits.

It also has the 30 amp outlet 120/240 volts you will need to match up to the rec. on the house for most trans switches.

You could get a bigger generator, but most still have only the 30 amp outlet to connect to the house .

Also the generator was not loud.

Great Buy!!!!
I purchased this gen after the little 800/900W I got from a chain store would not run our two fridges.

This thing runs everything in our 2200 sq ft house except, of course, the standard 240v appliances (electric H2O heater, house A/C, and electric clothes dryer). I have not tried the microwave, dehumidifier, toaster oven and such...

I got a dryer cord and L14-30 plug so I can hook this puppy up in a matter of minutes. . . Hurricane Sandy will hit us tomorrow so I am sure I'll get a... more

Only Used Once
The system was purchased to move our 90gal salt water aquarium from VA to AL. We were moving and had to break down the tank and transport 8 fish and 35+ inverts and coral from VA to AL, at best an over night down time (took us 3 days to get the system back up).

I decided to also move my refrigerator and save the costs of the moving company and the wasted food that goes with the frig being down for 1 week or more. With the meat we had, that paid for the system.

The whole experience was... more

Nice 3000w 3750w Peak Electric Generator
Ordered this generator and it was delivered 8-10 days later. in fact it was delivered prior to the email that Electric Generators Direct sent notifying me that it would be delivered. The generator arrived in excellent condition. It was delivered in a box, on a skid, with lots of plastic wrap holding the box securely to the skid. Assembly was minimal and easy. After adding 20 oz of oil and filling the tank with gasoline and fuel stabilizer, the manual start RATO engine started on the second... more
