Well Built, Worked First Time
This generator was ordered as part of our earthquake preparedness effort. We've had similar generators before and use them with a 10-circuit emergency switch panel. This unit seems to be well-designed. The only comment is that the electrical panel on the unit does not have firm backing so when plugging in the 30-amp, 220 v power cord, the panel does not feel firm and moves a bit.

We received a call within 48 hours of the order arranging for delivery. The generator was delivered on time, one... more

Best Overall Experience Ever
I was trying to buy the generator online but wanted to make sure I got lift gate service, so I called the 800 # and very nice person came on the phone and in a matter of seconds my order was in process. The same day I got an email saying that my order had shipped. The generator arrived with no dents in the shipping box and truck driver lowered it to the ground with the lift gate and used his pallet jack to put it in the garage.

I then followed the instructions to install wheels,oil and etc..... more

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...

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

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
