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

A Real Man's Generator
If size makes a difference, it should be a power house. Ordered it "after" hurricane Irma so I have not utilized all its great features but we just now have another little weather issue in the Gulf but hopefully I won't have to use it possibly until next year. Size & duel fuel was it's main selling points to me. I have an older generator but the ethanol gas additive has make it unusable until I can get it into the shop. I have no intentions to putting gasoline in this unit as... more
Pros: High Quality, Duel Fuel / Propane
Cons: Plastic Wheels

Great Generator
Went through hurricane Irma, had some power interruptions, Maria was on it's way. Bought this as an economical way to keeps the lights on. Set it up with an interlock plate in the breaker panel, found I can run the whole house including AC, with power management, on propane. My neighbor was impressed with what he saw and is going to order this generator for his home.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Exceeded Expectations

Champion Model 100297 Dual Fuel Generator
If you are in search for a home generator your search has ended. This 10000K Watt starting and continuous 8000K Watt generator is the one you need. The duel fuel capability makes standby power very feasible, especially since 20/30 Pound propane tanks are much easier and safer to store than cans of gasoline. You will lose some power utilizing propane, but with the capability of this machine your home would be much easily served, except for large appliances such as stove, central air... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality, Reliable
Cons: Heavy, Needs to have 4 wheels, Place in cart or wagon.

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...
