Happy With Electric Generators Direct, Unhappy With Shipper
Good news is the generator was super simple to set up, and started on propane immediately. Overall I'm happy with Electric Generators Direct, but I wouldn't order from them again unless a more competent shipper was used...

Delivered Damaged
Although this generator had all the features I wanted, and delivery was faster than originally estimated, the product was delivered damaged. At the time of delivery there was no damage to the carton, and I accepted delivery. Unfortunately only when it was completely unpacked and assembled did it become evident that the frame had been twisted, so severely that the air filter cover could not be removed. And the control panel on the generator was bent inward and cracked. The generator does... more

Bernard,
Very sorry you received your generator in damage condition. This problem would have been easily resolved if you notified us about the damage when the generator was unpacked. As long as the unit had not been oil/gassed, we would have been able to have the damaged generator picked up and would have gotten a new one sent out to your.

Excellent Value
Great value, excellent quality. I returned the previous generator I purchased (which cost a lot more) and am very happy with this one. Minimal assembly and it fired right up on LP. I'm not using gasoline at all so I don't have to worry about storage. Low THD so electronics work fine, and enough output to run my 1.5HP well pump on top of normal appliances and lights. Other than being a bit on the heavy side I have nothing bad to say about it. Comments based on 1 year ownership and several... more
Pros: Price, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

Great Generator! Worked Perfectly First Time I Fired It Up!
This generator is my first and it was very easy to set up. I just put on the wheels, put the oil in it and connected the battery and it fired up on propane the first time I hit the push start. I have not ran it in a real power outage yet but I did connect it to my house and put a load on it and it ran everything perfectly. I feel assured that when a real outage occurs we will be up and going again in about 5 minutes. I love that it runs on propane. I have a 1000 gallon tank and the propane... more

Excellent Generator Shipped Same Day
I was most impressed with the service. I ordered this generator in the morning and received notice of shipping the same day. I did not pay for express service but received it because that's the way these folks operate. The generator arrived in good shape and runs great. It does require minor assembly to install the wheels and hook up the battery. Complete instructions were provided including a quick start guide. Comes with a small funnel to install crankcase oil which is also provided in... more

Excellent Generator
Got it unloaded and setup was great. Was a bit cautious about being able to do it alone but was quite easy.

After oil and gas added started right off and tested with small loads on 120 volt outlets. Later connected to LP and worked great with same small loads.

A few days later the power company called and informed us of a scheduled power outage for about half an hour. Moved generator to power panel and started it on LP. Ran house, office/shop for an hour and a half until power outage... more
