Happy Generator
It works great, there was a bad accident taking out our electricity for 6 hours and the generator worked very well. We had coffee and watched tv, while the neighbors were walking around with flashlights.

Works Great!
I had a 13k before and this unit is way better!! Within a week of it being installed the power went out and it firred up and had the house going within 15 secs. It's very smooth running and quiet compared to my old unit!! I would recommend this unit to anyone, it's that good :)
