My main concert was running my 5000BTU window unit in the event of a power outage. Tried it first thing upon arrival. While it does have a little trouble with the compressors starting load, after that it is smooth sailing. I normally keep the AC on low fan speed, then adjust the temp setting to kick the compressor on, then set the fan speed to high after everything stabilizes. I plan on installing a hard start kit on the unit, which should completely resolve this minor issue.
While not stated in the item description, it does come outfitted with a drain screw on the carb bowl. Given how infrequently most generators are used I consider this a huge plus.
Unit started up easily. I disregarded the instructions (they say choke for only one pull); two pulls on full choke and the unit started on the second pull and kept running after moving choke to the run position.
Kind of surprised that no oil was shipped with it. I am used to engine powered equipment being shipped dry with a small bottle of oil in the packaging. No big deal as I had a partial bottle sitting on the shelf in my shop. IT calls for 10W-30.
While not really noisy I can't say it's real quiet either, it's just loud enough for its size. I have a generator that's twice its size that seems a tiny bit quieter. And the exhaust is rather smelly. Not that you want to be breathing exhaust from any engine but this smells kind of bad. Ought to take care of any skunks under your porch in short order.
The Recoil pulls easily but the engine rarely starts on the first pull; usually 2nd 3rd or 4th. I wonder how it will start in cold weather.
This little yellow machine produces a good 60 hertz and runs my juicer very nicely. It also will run my circular saw and 4 inch belt sander (individually) . The power tools run but not as brilliantly as with a large generator.
II have not checked precisely to see if I am getting the hours of runtime per tankful that is advertised. But I know it does not hold a lot of gas and runs pretty long. Loads vary in my use so it is more imprecise to measure gas consumption.
I'm glad to have it and hope it lasts a long time. Put in good oil and keep it changed.
