Good unit for the price that worked when needed but should be started up every now and then.
on March 12, 2017
After 4 years of maintaining this unit by starting it, letting it run for 15 min every 6 to 8 weeks, I finally had a power outage and had to put it to use. Worked very well and served its purpose. For the price, it is about what you would expect. The battery stopped keeping a charge a couple of years back so the electric starter needs to be plug into my portable charger but using the cord is not that big a deal. I did not want to spend a lot of dough on something that is not used often, but I did want a unit that would work when needed to provide sufficient power for the household items (heat, internet, tv, router, fridge and some light) that must be on in an emergency, especially in cold weather. I would not run the AC with it though. I would recommend buying the proper heavy duty electrical cord with the nice connection to not loose electricity but it can be plugged in with a regular two prong extension cord. Relatively quiet and for me, it can run 10 hours on one tank. Just what I was looking for. I would recommend if it meets your power requirements.
