I have a Honda and a Yamaha. They are both relatively small inverter units. They are very good units. I am very happy with them. I have had the Honda since 2000. No problems. The Yamaha I purchased after Sandy. I am very happy with it as well. No problems either. The other night I lost power. It is hot as hell here in NJ. Neither one would run my window air conditioner. The Yamaha ran it when I first tried it in cooler weather but not the other night. I looked at purchasing a second Yamaha and running them in parallel. That would have done it with power to spare. The cost is what ran me away. I could almost buy 3 of these for the same cost.
I started looking at the Chinese units sold here. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out most of them come out of the same factory with different names on them. Just study the pictures. So, it came down to what features I wanted.
I read the positives and the negatives on all of them. It just so happens this unit seemed to have the least negatives in my opinion. I got it today.
I unboxed it. The rear cover on the generator was pushed in. I removed the cover, straightened it with my bare hands and put it back on. I also noticed the wires are a little too close to the back cover. Nothing a couple washers to space it farther from the wires can't handle. A small design change by the manufacturer could change that! No Biggie! Filled it with gas and oil. Fired it up and after a warm up threw it on my window air conditioner. Runs it with ease! By the way the air conditioner is a 12,000 BTU SPT I purchased here. In a power outage the Honda and Yamaha can take care of the smaller things like refrigerator, TV, fish tank bubblers, lighting and the like. They are inverter generators and sip fuel. For starting induction motors you are better off with old style generators like this one in my opinion. Honda and Yamaha make the old style generator sets as well. Now go price them. Sticker shock! One might say the Honda and Yamaha units will last longer. They are built better. This is most likely true. So why did I buy this unit? Price versus performance and usage. If I planned on using the generator every day I would have definitely purchased a Honda or Yamaha. They are excellent units and have a large very functional dealer network behind them. I am only going to use this unit in a power outage. We have a lot of them down here. They are usually less than 1/2 hour. Just enough time to get the generators out started and hooked up, then the power goes back on. So why bother? Every once in a while we have a good long one lasting hours. The older I get the more I hate temperature extremes and the other stuff, like loosing food in the fridge. Any way, I figure if I put 100 hours on this generator before I drop dead it will be a lot. Do I think this generator will last 100 hours? You bet. In fact, I am very impressed with the build! I don't understand how they can sell them for this price! For what I am going to use it for? It's a no brainer to me.
One other bit of useless or useful information I would like to share. You know what kills most generators that aren't used often? Stale gasoline! All too many people buy generators for power outages, get them out of the box oil them and gas them. Start them up. Set them in a corner of the garage and forget about them. That is, until they need them in a power outage. They get them out and it's a no go! The carburetor is gummed up with varnish and won't start. If they are lucky enough to get the thing started the oil in the crankcase isn't oil anymore. Everything gets warmed up just in time for the engine to spit out something it needed. Then it's Boo Hoo Time! Doesn't matter who made the generator then. Same gas and oil. If you are going to buy this or a different unit there are things you need to do in order for these generators to run no matter who made them. You need to take them out of the garage and run them under load (50% at least) for a couple of hours at least 4 times a year. You need to use a fuel stabilizer. You need to change the oil at the very least once a year, twice is better. Don't forget to change the oil after the first 4 to 8 hours of operation. One other thing. You need to break them in. What? Yes, not enough is written about this. It just doesn't stop at getting them out of the box when new, filling them with gas and oil, starting them and putting them away. You need to break them in. No matter who made it. If you don't break them in right, again, it doesn't matter who made them the engine won't last. Start it up, load it up. Remove the load while it is still running and let it cool, shut it down. Let it cool. Repeat the same procedure over and over until you have about 8 hours on the machine. Then change the oil. Some people change the oil after four hours and then again at 8 hours. Again, it doesn't matter who made it, it needs to be done. You do it with a car and probably don't realize it. You do it with a lawn mower and most likely don't realize it. You need to do it with your generator as well. The best equipment won't last if not taken care of. Take care of it and it will take care of you. Most likely too much said by me!
I hope someone gets some good out of this most likely, unwanted wealth of information.
As for now, I would buy this generator again. I am liking what I see.
Update: July 20, 2013
As if the above "Blab Cast" wasn't enough. Here's an important piece of information. I found this out the hard way. I like to fill things up pretty darn full when dealing with gasoline. I didn't fill the gas tank to the point where it was ready to spill over. I just filled it pretty darn full. On my unit the vent for the tank isn't on the fuel cap but on the top of the tank. The hose for the vent leads down to the engine air inlet allowing the engine to burn off any fumes. What happened to me was I filled the tank far enough to the point the engine was able to suck raw fuel into the air inlet, giving the engine way too much fuel resulting in an bad situation. My suggestion? Don't fill the fuel tank much past the bottom of the screen in the tank and this won't happen to you. It won't happen to me again! Maybe a design change at the manufacturing level is needed? For me it isn't a deal breaker but for someone else it may wind up turning out much more than that. Enough said!
This unit isn't what you might say one of quieter ones on the market.
You may also want to install a small inline fuel filter. It's cheap insurance against crud in the carb.
Here's one more thing. It concerns the manual. Most of the Chinese products I have purchased come with manuals that aren't so good. I'm being nice! This unit happens to come with a very good one. 20 Stars to the writer! Great Job!
I gave this unit 5 Stars. I gave this rating with a mindset of Price vs Performance. If I were rating a Yamaha or Honda the rating would have been much different.
The generator would start on the first or second pull and ran great. I may buy another one and use one for my water pump and the other for the rest of the house after I put in a transfer switch.
