First Impression Is Very Positive
I ordered this generator on black Friday on a great sale and was not disappointed. Unfortunately there was no review information online for this model but the specs checked out and the price was right. The piece I wasn't sure on was what wattage it would actually support. Typically generators have a running and surge wattage, this guy only has one rating which appears to cover both. The delivery came by freight and it only took about 10 days.

Pros: Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Fast, High Quality

Great Value, Check The Choke
I bought this generator to run a paint sprayer for an outlying shed. The price was a good value, and I thought the Subaru engine would be fairly trouble free.

Just to be different, I read the manual. Mainly, I wanted to learn oil type and capacity. When it was ready, I set the choke and started it up. It started on the second pull and ran smoothly. I plugged a trouble light into the outlet to make sure it worked.

Generator
I am not satisfied. they do not work well. The generator is not constant - the speed always changes. My generator is in Quebec, Canada. Do you have a place where I can send it for repairs in Canada?

Frank,
Sorry you're not satisfied with the generator. Unfortunately we don't do repairs, but you can try contacting the manufacturer for further help.

The generator comes with a 1 year warranty, and the engine has its own 1 year warranty. If you need any help from us in contacting the manufacturer to get this fixed, please give us a call.
