I got this in spite of bad reviews because I sorely wanted one to get through a protracted black out after Irene. It was almost the only 1 I could get delivered the next day. Well, after 1 day, I'm relieved. It's a solid unit, and simple. Yes, it's loud, but not as loud as my neighbors' machines (except one little unit). It has a small gas tank, so can't run that long--maybe 4-5 hours at the most with a light load. My only beef is that you can't see how much is left to go as you fill the tank, which means overflowing is common and too easy. I can run a small fridge, a computer setup and a plasma TV--but that's working it hard. Still, it's quite inexpensive and does what it needs to. BTW, the manual is about half useless, but it is a HOOT! Gotta love those language barriers. TIP: Some folks complain about starting these things, but when you first start any engine (especially brand new) you need to prime it. So, when you first get it set up, pull the cord gently about 5-10 times to prime it (without trying to get it running). Then, when you pull quick and hard to start it, it will jump right into action.

did not work when I bought it, had to pay $85 to ship back. The company has an office near by but you can't return items at that location. Customer service is very rude warranty does not allow for repairs, parts only not labor.

First off - it's not a Honda or Yamaha. But that being said, it works fine if you know how to troubleshoot and maintain small motors. My generator runs great, but other may need tweaking before it works correctly for you.

The good:
1) It's quiet. My dB meter gave a reading of 59dBC at 1m while powering 1000w of lights, and most of the noise seems to come from the reciprocating of the piston rather than the exhaust note. If I start it and go inside I have to listen very carefully to determine if it's still running or not. It's not Yamaha quiet, but it's certainly not loud. It's much quieter than my Champion 5kw generator. If I turn off the smart throttle it gets a bit noisier, but is still quiet (63dBC).
2) It meets the rated output. I ran a half tank of gas with 3x500w flood lights, and it purred right along. It overloaded to 2kW for about 10 minutes before it tripped the overload circuit.
3) The power is very clean, for a generator. I measured 121V RMS and 60Hz dead nuts with my oscope while under load. There is a significant RF component to the power, so if you're using it for HAM or other sensitive measuring equipment you'll want a good power line filter before your equipment. I had no trouble operating my digital oscope off this genset, and it powered work lights and a sawzall without issue.
4) You can turn off the auto-throttle feature, if you need full power available for a starting load (power saw?). Note that the switch may be labeled wrong (mine was).
5) Easy to start - 1 pull and mine started out of the box. The most so far is 3 pulls after I ran it dry.
6) Very portable. It's lightweight and easy to transport, it would be great for tailgating.
7) It's well built on the outside.

Not only did I return one ($45).

Not only did I return the "tested" in1800 ($45).

Not only I am guilty of actually returning the returned to recieve another "tested" IN1800 ($45), I just had another shipped to me this very day.

I have witnessed one run and it was quiet and produced electricity, but the money I spent transferring junk for more junk would have been better spent purchasing a known, US-made product.

I've had this generator for just over a year now and used it less than 10 times. I wanted to wait to review it until I had it for a while. It has always been extremely noisy. I mean really loud! Kind of a loud, tinny sound. My Yamaha generator sounded like a purring kitten compared to this unit. Another thing that bothers me is when it overloads, you can't reset it while it is running. You have to shut it down and restart it to reset it. It would be nice if the "reset" button actually worked! Maybe they all work this way...I don't know. I tried it just after the one year warranty ended and it ran for a few minutes, then died. I checked the oil and it was full of gas! I drained the oil, put new oil in and ran it again. Same problem. I did this three times and finally emailed ETC. That was a joke. It took over a week to answer my email and that didn't even have any advice other than to take it 120 miles away to get it serviced! I decided to look at it myself. The first thing I did is drain the gas. It looked nasty! The gas was a year old in it and I could tell it was bad. That could have been the whole problem. Why the gas got into the oil though is beyond me. I then took the whole thing apart and cleaned the carburetor, fuel pump and whatever else looked oily. I managed to get it put back together, put fresh gas in it and fired it up. This time it worked flawlessly, or at least for as long as I ran it (about 30 minutes). I realize now that I should have drained the gas out of it and let it run until it stopped to get the gas out of the carburetor and that was my fault. The manual says to drain the gas and oil and then let it run out if you are not going to use it often. I will do that from now on but I don't understand the "drain the oil" tip at all.Read more ›
