I filled it with gas, checked the oil and hoped it would start. It kicked right off and ran smoothly for two days. Stopped only to change the oil and add more gas. The oil change was recommended after the break in period of a couple hours. I used the four 120 volt outlets with extension cords of various lengths. One for the freezer downstairs, one for the fridge in the kitchen, one for the entertainment center, and one for a power strip to plug in several fans(it got hot real quick without the A/C running)and lamps in various rooms around the house. A transfer switch would have eliminated the spaghetti junction of extension cords, but these switches aren't all that cheap; and then the install.
Also, be prepared to turn up the TV or radio because this thing is loud. Especially if it is right outside your door on the deck. I would have rated it 5 stars except for the noise. Of course, you could buy a generator with a much quieter Honda engine(like my mower), but that would cost more than a few bucks extra. BTW don't try to lift this unit into a truck or van by yourself unless you are a professional weight lifter.
I can't vouch for the longevity of this unit, but it did the job just fine for this go around.
The only thing that someone may not like is that is is kind of loud compared to the newer ones that have come out now.
I wish I had another one just like it.
To make this convenient, we installed a Reliance transfer switch. (Note that we ordered a Reliance transfer switch kit through Amazon that was already prewired). We connected the switch to the house wiring right at the circuit box (required). We found installation of the generator transfer switch to not at all be difficult (only a rudimentary knowledge of electrical circuitry is required).
When the electrical power from the grid is out, we can now keep essential appliances (well pump, refrigerator, and lights) in operation by running them off of the generator. When the grid power becomes restored, the generator can be wheeled out of the way... after turning off the transfer switch... and after unplugging the electrical connection cord supplied in the Reliance transfer switch kit. The transfer switch we bought allows connecting 4 house circuits at 120 volts, and 1 house circuit at 240 volts.
Surprisingly, this generator is powerful enough to operate everyone of our home appliances (including even electric heaters and window air conditioners). Of course, the generator output is rather limited, so; for example; it wouldn't be feasible to try and run more than a couple of high wattage appliances simulateously.
Because the voltage drops lower and lower as more household appliances are turned on, the simultaneous operation of electronic equipment (computers, etc) would hardly ever be warranted (our educated opinion). Be warned here that electronic equipment CAN BE DAMAGED during a low voltage event. This can happen EVEN if a device is connected to a power surge protector. Safe operation of an electronic device requires a constant clean power supply--such as can be achieved with a line power conditioner/voltage regulator. Thus, to safely operate our expensive HDTV and our other computerized equipment when running the generator, we are always cautious to keep them connected to our Tripp Lite conditioner/regulator (which is more than a surge protector). We were able to buy a 600 Watt model (with voltage regulator) for less than $100. Another safe option for operating electronic equipment during a power outage would be through an DC-to-AC inverter (a battery connection is required).
Other than running necessary household appliances and our well pump, the portable generator has proven to be completely functional for powering a drill, a circular saw, and an air compressor.
If this generator has a downside, it would be that the noise level is somewhat on the high side (even though less than some other brands/models).
Another consideration for those of us who are beginning to experience the effects of growing older is that the unit weighs about 160 lbs (which is much too heavy to lift). However, it isn't at all difficult to wheel about. As far as starting the engine, we have not yet been unable to get the motor running with a couple of pulls of the start rope (This is more difficult for Cher than for Jim). Consequently, the next model we buy will probably have an electric start.
All-in-all we find the Coleman Powermate (with 10 HP Subaru engine) and the Reliance generator transfer switch (the kit) to be an effective (yet inexpensive) system for powering essential home appliances when the grid power is off.
It is a bit noisy, but I've found some interesting sound baffle structure articles on the net to maybe make it more permanent and reduce noise.
Very pleased overall.
