From The Manufacturer
Hps9000ve
The HPS9000HE is EPA certified to run on natural gas, LP and gasoline. WINCO understands the need for reliable power, which is why we have equipped this generator with a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard commercial grade engine. The HPS9000HE also features a 7 gallon fuel tank, full receptacle package with circuit breaker protection, 100% copper windings, and has less than 6% total harmonic distortion which is safe for sensitive loads. Our multi-fuel generators are perfect for taking up to the... more

Still breaking it in with gasoline. Have not ran with propane yet. Was spot on with output of 124 volts. Will update later.

Winco Hps9000ve - 8,000 Watt Tri-fuel Generator W/ Electric Start B&s Vanguard Engine Review
I purchased this generator in early 1999 in prep for Y2K to power up my home in the event I lose power. I have it permanantly mounted in the basement with air intake and exhaust ducted to the outside. I installed an hour meter because I am anal about oil changes. This engine has run 25 hours in the 7 years I have owned it. This past October 12 Western NY was hit with a storm that knocked out power for a week. The run hours were doubled in two days. On natural gas, this generator takes a... more

Winco Hps9000ve - 8,000 Watt Tri-fuel Generator W/ Electric Start B&s Vanguard Engine Review
So far so good. Quick start in the gas mode, however I have yet to hook it up to propane yet. Used once so for about three hours, worked great. One thing to take note of, this unit does not idol down when power draw is low; the engine goes full bore at all times. If you want an engine that will idol down when not pumping out watts you should look at a Honda engine, which of course cost more. My father in law has a generator with a Honda engine; it power down when not dishing out watts,... more

I Depended On Product Reviews To Make My Choice
This is my first generator and I depended on reviews to make my choice. After opening the box and setting it up according to manual I connected it to my back in the woods garage and it started on second pull using gas, I will eventually move it over to LP(a friend advised me to break it in on gas before switching to LP). The first job I did was to resurface the cement floor of the garage with an EDCO machine and the generator worked perfectly for about 10 or 12 hours of work. If you request a... more

Thomas,
I apologize about any issues you had regarding the lift-gate service. It is extremely rare that a carrier would would have a 2 week wait for a truck with a lift. Your delivery was to a more rual area, so that may be what caused the delay.

Great And Flexible
This is an excellent generator, offering flexibility and reliance! The generator is very dependable and switching fuels is very easy. When I need to use it I start with gasoline and then switch to natural gas! Runs steady under varying loads and gets the job done! Highly recommend it to those who need a stand by option without the hassle of total built in unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality

I Like It
I have only had the generator for a few weeks and run it for a short period to check it out. Seems well built and started right up. I am disappointed with the wheel kit.

While the kit is well made too, it does not fit the generator well. Looks like the dimensional specs don't match. The wheels are tight against the frame and rub, so it's hard to move around.

Also the frame bolts for the front foot are not long enough and barely allow the nut to thread on. EGD needs to do some checking... more
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Durable
