Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid little generator for lighter jobs I bought this unit to complement a larger generator already in my arsenal. This small gen-set isn't made to drive hefty power tools or run a welder, but it fills the roles of: powering computers and network gear during power outages, powering a handful of power tool chargers on a remote worksite, running a 2/10/30amp 12v battery charger to charge large equipment out in the field, or running a couple worklights. This unit is great for jobs requiring either a small easily portable generator or a power outage situation for running electronics and such. In those roles it really shines. I would say the only negatives I've come across with this unit is simply wishing it had the power rating to handle certain higher load corded power tools, but lower draw ones are just fine on this generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little travel generator I am a full time RV'r. I started with a larger standard generator. I was a fuel hog getting only 14 hours off of 5 gallons of fuel. The 1000 watt inverter generatior pulls all my needs and at the moment runs 9 hours on 0.6 gallons. I typically run my laptop, TV, DVD player and even charge my house batteries at the same time. I am surprised at its capacity to fill my needs. I am a bit OCD so I changed the oil more than the manual recommended but I want this baby to last which the 3 year warranty tells me is was designed to do. The compression seems to have increased over the 3 weeks I have used it so I believe the cylinder walls are polished up well. Would I replace this product if something happened to it? Yes in a heart beat. I will be putting up a 30 day review on youtube.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet! I bought this a month ago for my pontoon boat and absolutely love it! It is super quiet and light weight and handles all my lights on my boat with no trouble. The first time starting was a little hard but after that is is easy to start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice little generator I got a month and a half ago and have only used twiceto run some power tools and a jobsite radio. It was a lot more quiet than other I've had in the past. I'd recommend this to anyone that doesn't have huge loads to run
