So I unpacked the generator, sat down and read the manual (I always do that), topped up the oil, added a gallon of fresh fuel, turned on the ignition, gas valve and the choke. Then I was going to pull the engine through once or twice gently before the real pull that would start it, but hey, it started half way through the first pull! After half a minute, I turned off the choke and the engine ran smoothly.
There are lots of opinions on the noise level. I started it in my shop, where I have run many other small engines, and this one qualifies as one of the quietest. WAY quieter than the Honda-powered pressure washer I had just been servicing. Actually, there is more (normal) engine/mechanical noise than exhaust noise, so once outside where it's supposed to be anyway, it will be a lot quieter without hard walls to echo the noise.
After about five minutes of running, I plugged in a few tools, among them a 1500W heat gun. The engine sound difference was barely discernible and the voltage stayed right on.
I talked to a tech guy on these generators and he said the one biggest issue people have with them is they leave old fuel in the tank when the machine is in storage for months on end. Adding a fuel stabilizer intended to keep our new alcohol-laced gasoline stable is key. I'm going to run it for 5 hours and then change the oil to Mobil 1 full synthetic. I use this oil in all my small engines (and in my vehicles and even in my Harley) and I have no engine problems.
BTW, I got this idea from another reviewer but it bears reposting: To open the box, I cut all around the bottom about a half-inch off the floor. Then I just lifted off the whole box that is now my storage cover. Neat.
I'll post an update after some good running hours, but so far, this little generator is A-1.
OK, it is now January, 2013, so it's Update Time:
We've had our generator for about a year now. Before purchase, I read all the rave reviews, and I second them all . . . with the possible exception of those who call it "quiet!" Our neighbors don't agree, and it sounds to me to be as loud as any genset I've ever used. But we live in the Redwood forest and we have predictable power outages during just about every winter storm, so this little gem as paid for itself several times already. It always starts easily, usually on the first pull. Since we live in CA, we had to pay extra for the "CA version," which I believe means it has some extra exhaust-clogging hardware on the muffler. BTW, the noise from this machine is not exhaust noise, but rather mechanical noise. I have no idea why it's so loud, but hey, it always works, so it's fine with me. With a light load, it has always had a "lope" in the running speed, and since the CA version will not allow any carburetor mixture adjustments, I just move the choke lever toward "choke" a bit until the speed evens out. I've had it running over 8 hours on a full tank and the gauge still shows some fuel when I refill it. It powers all the essentials of our home (full kitchen, gas furnace blower, office, TV, quite a few lights, and various power tools, all through a 6-circuit transfer switch. Sweet! This genset, especially at the tiny price, is the deal of deals!
Just an update here: It is April, 2014. We've been so glad to have this genset over our last winter when every time there's a storm some trees seem to find their way down onto our local power lines. Sometimes we run the generator for only a few hours, once it was a 12-hour day and half the next day. It always starts easily and always does its job. I do change the oil every 50 hours or 6 months, whichever comes first, and I always keep fuel stabilizer in the fuel.
