12,000 Watt Electric Start Portable Generator
Generator is good quality. It starts easily. It is easy to change the air filter and change the oil. I am very satisfied with the purchase.
Only con is the packaging. You have to install the bumpers and the wheels. You can slide the generator forward and install the bumpers. Unfortunately, the upper pallet is too wide to install the wheels. I had to get a saws all and cut out the upper pallet so that both wheels could be installed. Maybe there is another way to install the wheels that is... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, High Quality

An Amazing Machine!
After an easy assembly, I added gas and oil and started it. It was much quieter than I expected and handled the load of my house with power to spare. I was able to power all the normal household appliances and even the air conditioning unit with no problem. A great investment for hurricane prone South Florida.
Pros: Quiet, Price, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality
Cons: Heavy

Update To Previous Review
Here is the follow-up I promised. I have the RP12000E plugged into a 50 amp receptacle on the side of the house via a 25 foot 50 amp cord. That receptacle is wired into a Reliance panel with interlock switch via a 60 amp breaker. I gave it a test run yesterday. I was able to run everything that I needed to. I had all three refrigerators running, turned on the cooktop, microwave, well pump and yes, even the AC. I have a 3 ton Trane. The RP12000E did blip once when the AC kicked on but it... more

Full Review To Come Later But
I have not been able to test this unit under load just yet but I did start it up. Surprisingly quite for an engine this big. Assembly was no big deal. Packaged very well also. I don't like reading reviews of products where the product has not been thoroughly tested and here I have done just that. I just wanted you to know that it is quite, again, for a twin cylinder engine. More to come.
Pros: Quiet, I'll get back to you
Cons: I'll get back to you
