Warehouse deal, saved a lot of money.

After adding the oil and gas, it started on the first pull and works perfectly.

Later, it happened again, and now it seems permanently stuck.

Purchased this generator because of Hurricane Irene blacked out our street for 7 days. I was able to use it for the last 2 days, and I am very happy with my purchase. My home electrical panel has a generator hookup using an interlock switch and a power inlet box. I was able to power all the loads in my house (except the central AC) without a problem. No breakers ever tripped. The most important were the fridge, separate chest freezer, and well pump. We also ran many lights, coffee maker, laptop pc, toaster, 2 TV's, dishwasher, washer/dryer, and 3/4 hp pool pump. We used it 12 hours per day and had several neighbors over for hurricane parties.

I give this generator 5 stars because it performed flawlessly during my first 25 hours of use. However there is a downside, but its not specific to this brand, so I did not take any stars away for it. The NOISE! Even with the Briggs and Stratton "Super Lo-Tone" muffler, its about equivalent to a big (2 cylinder) lawn tractor with the blades spinning. If you have neighbors that are very close, intend to run this thing all night, or intend to use it at a tailgate or public event or show, please select a quieter generator such as a built-in or one of the new inverter generators.

Gas gauge not linear. At first it goes down fast to 2/3 full. Then it takes many hours to go from 2/3 to emtpy. At empty, it still has approx 3 gallons left. I'm assuming they did this so you don't run out of gas because that could send bad electricity to your plugged in devices as the engine dies. I easily get 10 hours of runtime on 5 gallons.

No shipping damage (Thank you FedEx). Started first pull. No gasoline smell when running or when storing on garage.

I wanted to mention several important items that are in the owners manual: 1.

I purchased a B&S 30469 in September 2011 from a local retailer. Assembly was straightforward and accomplished with common hand tools. These units ship without oil, so be sure to fill the crankcase with the included bottle of oil before starting the unit. With the kill switch off, you should slowly pull the starter two or three times to circulate some oil before firing it up for the first time. A blast of fogging oil into the spark plug hole before the first start isn't a bad idea either.

Follow the manual's instructions and drain this oil after the first five hours of operation. The break-in period causes significant oil contamination due to metal shavings as the new parts break in, which is something virtually all small engines will do and you don't want that crud floating around in your oil. For a no-mess oil change, buy a shallow disposable aluminum roasting pan at the supermarket - something about 1-2" deep. This pan will fit under the frame while most automotive-style drain pans are much too large. I run synthetic oil in all of my air-cooled engines as synthetics are generally more resistant to break down due to heat. There are plenty of good choices out there, including a Briggs-branded synthetic oil. I use Mobil 1 5w-40 Turbo Diesel Truck, which is safe for gasoline engines.

The 30469 is easy to assemble, easy to start (usually starts on the first or second pull), generates relatively stable power, and has a sturdy frame with well-labeled parts.

I added an in-line fuel filter for peace of mind. Virtually any hardware store or auto parts store sells the appropriate filter - just ask for a carbureted small engine filter that will fit 1/4" fuel line. You can install it anywhere along the black fuel line between the petcock and carburetor.

Shopped many months for a back-up generator in the event of a severe storm...which is highly possible here in Texas.
Found the same unit here locally....but Amazon had the best price..and with free shipping the decision was easy...
After some minor assembly and adding oil, it started up on the second pull....Runs smooth and is very quite.
Plugged in many tools...fans...etc...ran perfect...now its time to put away for an emergency....I would highly recommend this unit...

As Super Storm Sandy was approaching, I realized that, while i had planned on installing a propane powered whole house generator, I did not have a generator. Unfortunately, I did not have time to buy through Amazon but i did get this unit from my local electrician. Dan brought it over around 8:30 AM on Monday the 29th of october - about 3 hours before it started getting real ugly - it takes about ten minutes to put on the wheels, the stabilizer bar and fill the oil tank. added gas and it started on the first pull.

Less than ten hours after having this generator delivered the power went out. Again it started on the first pull. Didn't know what to expect as I have never used a generator before. I ran it about 5 hours and then the cable went off - so I decided to follow the manual and change the oil.

I highly recommend that you follow the manual and change the oil after 5-10 hours of use - the once clear oil was now black and silver and sludgy - it needed changing.

I then Refilled the gas tank - pulled the cord and the generator started right up - again. I ran it through the night.

I have a six circuit transfer switch in my house with an outside hook up for the generator power chord. during the 4 days that the power was out, i ran this baby about 15 hours a day. Ran a full size fridge/freezer, a full size upright freezer, my furnace and circulating pumps, overhead lights in all of the hallways as well as outlets for tvs, lamps and toaster and coffee maker.

Like i said before, i have never used a generator nor am i very mechanically inclined - so did not know what to expect on performance. This generator ran almost 3 hours on a gallon of gasoline and the power output was clean enough to run two large screen and one small screen led tvs.

I want to thank Henry Bowman and J. Molzen for their excellent advice on amazon on the care and use of this generator
