Good Product But Bad Packaging
Generator works great but the packaging needs to be improved. The first generator had been damaged in transit, company replaced it with no real issues. The second generator I got was in good condition but the funnel that comes with it was broken and the supplied quart of oil was leaking. The generator itself is good and the staff was easy to work with. Generac needs to make the packaging more durable for shipping.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again

Just Right
Great product. Just right for my application. Lights or a drill or a small pump. Fits in my crowded truck. A little heavy for 1 person. Didn't trust the inverter models. Smallest regular generator I could find.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, Reliable
