Took 5 minutes to assemble and fired up first crank with propane. Tested generator and powered the whole house including hot tub and 2 air conditioners. I was surprised at how quiet it was.

A Good Value, A Good Generator
We purchased this generator as an emergency generator for storm outages. The Firman H08051 came well packaged, with all parts needed. Assembly was quick and minimal... bolt on wheels and the front foot and you're pretty much done. The overall build quality seems durable enough for home use, but the control panel would not likely handle pro use. All the controls are easy to access, well labeled, and easy to operate, with one exception... the choke. The directions do not give any specific... more

Seems Like Great Product!
Generator was shipped direct from manufacturer with no damage to generator, only minor damage to box. Love that it came with everything needed to get started - including engine oil and charged battery. Added oil, some gas, hooked up battery and turned easy switch (off/LP/gas) to gas, pushed button to start - and it started up on the 1st crank! Couldn't believe it - first engine I've ever had that started that easily!

This unit had almost all the features I wanted - 10Kw, Gas gauge,... more

Cons: Heavy, THD % uncertain

Andrew,
In regards to your comment about starting the generator on LP. I would suggest following the directions in the manual because starting with LP is slightly different than starting with gas. If you're still having trouble, I'd suggest contact Firman directly @ (844) 347-6261. They can provide some additional troubleshooting if you're still having issues.

Advantaged Of Dual Fuel
I bought this because we live in an area served by Consumers Energy, a company whose maintenance program ends with emptying the wastebaskets in their offices. Our lines have been broken so many times our splices have splices. This generator can run on propane. That eliminates the problem of stale gas and gummed up carbs with gasoline. My hope is that this generator will never see gasoline but the option is there. Tried it with propane and it fired right up. Unit seems well built with some nice... more

Great Product
Generator arrived as expected. After some minor assembly and adding oil, I attached it to a propane tank and fired it up. No issues what so ever. It is a little noisier than I expected even though it says it has a quiet muffler system. I highly recommend this Firman product. It works great for my fifth wheel with 50amp plug. I ran 2 air conditioners and the microwave and the electric fireplace all at once and didn't notice any extra effort out of the generator.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Features, Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Heavy, A little louder than expected

Well Built, Thoughtfully Engineered Generator
I have owned several portable generators over the years. The Firman appears to be the best designed and constructed I have seen. I purchased it because of the dual fuel option. I prefer to use LPG to avoid refilling the gas tank and the long term storage issues of gasoline. The Firman started right up and runs smoothly. I have only run it a short time under electrical load, but feel confidant it will be up to the task when a long power outage occurs.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Features, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

Great Generator ... Good Price And All The Needed Features
The generator was heavy but all of them are. It has some oil leakage in the box.. I called firman on Saturday and received a prompt call back and assurances. After a quick consultation with Firman I connected the propane and it started right up.. No issues. I ran it for a little bit and then put it away. I hooked up the propane and it started right up.. No problems.. All I need is a major power outage to really put it through a good workout. The primary purpose of buying this generator... more
