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.Read more ›
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.

Opened the generator, added oil, added gas, primed(only 3-4 pumps), pulled string and started on first pull. Runs good, quiet, compact. Everything I was looking for!Published on July 25, 2013 by Jason Bedoun

The box the generator came in works better than the generator. AVOID. I give it 1 star out of respect for the deceased.Published on May 8, 2013 by gary9891
I recommend the first thing you do is check the oil level before attempting to start. If the oil is not full enough the generator will not start or will run for awhile then stop. Read morePublished on March 16, 2013 by Pat
