I own one of these bought from Home Depot. Price was EXCELLENT. May not be a Honda, etc.. But for 400 it is an excellent back up generator. It is made in the US. Starts EVERY time, runs nearly the whole house including the furnace.(No AC) (Will run Window AC). I keep the gas treated, run int once a month or so (As you should ANY gas engine, unless winterized) It is a purchase worth the money.

Bought this generator over a year ago at Home Depot for under 400.00 at a clearance price.PROS:Has low oil shutoff/Rigid tires/2 110 volt plugs/1 220 plugs./low fuel consumption.Have ran this generator continuosly with 2 jobsite air compressors and 4 roofing coil nailers with no problems.Aiso had 3way hooked up charging 1 Milwaukee 3 bay battery charger and 1 V28 battery charger.CONS:Minor-Fuel shutoff is inline wing type/No oil level indicator glass/Could use 2 more 110 outlets.FINAL THOUGHTS:Have been well pleased with this generator as it has withstood all tests I have thrown at it.

I bought my machine from a guy who has to keep up with the Jones's. He bought a new Kubota brand, and I bought his Devilbiss. The machine works great! Only once, it wouldn't start, but I drained the old fuel, put in fresh gas, and it started right up. Pro's - It is a great machine for the money. Con's - It is a little on the noisy side, and a little too heavy to be called portable.

I bought this generator because my wife refused to let me buy a house with a well unless I got a generator. I have used it many times and have loaned it to my brother many times for extended power outages (2-3 days at a time). It has never failed me and it has always provided more power than needed. It has not used oil and is fuel efficient for a generator of its size. Rather than start it, I run the tank dry of gas, crack the nut at the bottom of the float bowl to get the last little bit of gas out of the carb. and let it sit. When I want to start it, I fill it with gas, spray a little starting fluid in the air filter and it starts on the first or second pull regardless of how long it has been idle.

I bought this after Hurricane Isabel and have not regretted it. In fact, it got used again after Irene a couple of weeks ago and saved my sister-in law's freezer full of food, among other things. With a little basic care and maintenance, this generator continues to perform like new 7 years later, with reliable and clean (waveform) power that is easy on electronics. It starts on the first pull and runs strong all day. As another reviewer noted, it is quite fuel efficient. It is loud, however, so I built a little enclosure out of cinder blocks and cement board (roof) under my deck, and that cuts the noise considerably. Tips for keeping the engine reliable:
- Run it every month (or every 4 to 6 months, if you are like me and forget)for 20-30 minutes to make sure you can count on it and to evaporate any condensation out of the oil, etc.
- Check the oil before running it and when you refuel it during extended ops. It only holds 26 oz and not much needs to burn off before the low oil sensor/cutoff switch trips.
- Make sure you check the oil on a level surface. Low oil will cause it to stop running and/or not start. Can't stress this enough.
- Make sure to run the gas out of it when you are done by turning off the fuel valve and lettting it burn the last bit of gas out of the fuel line. This keeps the carburetor from getting gummed up.
- Use Stabil or another similar product to keep the gas fresh (for 6-12 months, tops, depending on the product and how much you use). Do not use old/bad gas!
By the way, for the reviewer that complained about the "$600" 10hp engine - it sucks that you got a bad generator, but that Tecumseh 10hp motor alone goes for over $400 new.

Lasted 3 hours before the generator stalled and electrical problems. Key parts, the stator and rotor burned up and are no longer available. You will be left with a $600 Tecumseh 10 hp engine.

I put this generator thru hell, we ran it for 18 hours a day for 5 days when hurrican gustro came thru louisiana and it never failed us. we ran a 110 unit, tv,freezer,fridge,fan and when the heavy rains came i would plug in the 1.5 horse power pump on the pool to remove excess water. it was well worth the 649 i paid for it.

The PowerBack GTO5200C by DeVilbiss,I found to be strong &reliable generator. The gasoline capacity allows for extended hours of operation .
Directions for safe operation are posted on the generator,step-by-step including leveling of the generator
With the correct power cords especially those for 3-Pole 4-wire Grounding twist 30A-125/250V circuit.
Additionally there are four 125volt circuits.Manuals for this generator must be read & this generator must be grounded for safety.Units are shipped with no oil according to DOT Motor Freight regulation, oil for 10HP Tecumseh Engine is provided by manufacturer as a first step.
Voltage /amps are consistant with Manual ,operator should review the load draw from connected appliances...
Very Reliable unit during a extended power outage
