Whether you are headed to the campsite, jobsite or the stadium, the Ryobi 2200 Watt Inverter Generator is ready with clean, quiet power for any occasion. Designed with an extra quiet engine, this inverter is whisper quiet and offers 2200 Starting Watts/1800 Running Watts and is completely safe for even the most sensitive electronics. Plus, this portable inverter is parallel-kit capable, so for larger power demands you can link two Ryobi Inverters together for twice the power. This Inverter also features idle-down technology for better fuel efficiency, and rear wheels with extending handle to make transport a breeze.

At the time of this review, I live in Puerto Rico and we have been hit by 2 Hurricanes Irma and Maria. This generator has been on 20 hours a day (1 week for Irma) and 3 straight weeks for Maria. This review is directed more for emergencies and less for power tools and such.
I currently have a Fridge, 3 fans, 4-5 Light bulbs, a 47 inch tv, Cel phones and portable gaming consoles charges around the clock. I was also able to connect a washing machine with everything else off.
This machine for it's size and weight deliver so much value. Also the fact that its so quiet has helped with not having neighbors disturbed by the fact that its on all day.
Last thing, I'm getting 7-10 hours of use per tank (1 gallon tank) in idle mode. As a comparison, other Generators owned by my family members, although might pack more energy and supply more stuff spend 5 gallons every 8 hours. In yhe long run I personally prefer the savings. Even planning on buying a second one just for the parallel kit.
Will recommend to everyone I know.
The engine is made by Topsun which is in several lines of generators like this. if you pull the parts list on the ryobi website, you'll see that you can buy all parts for the gennie EXCEPT for engine parts. You can get a spark plug, air filter, fuel pump, but the engine itself and internal components are NOT available. It is considered disposable if you have a major mechanical issue. Big difference there compared with the Japenese brands and support networks. Who knows how long it will last. The Honda's are known for 1000's of hours of life. Ryobi may make it- maybe not. I won't need mine to last that long.
The generator runs fine. First hour or so the rpms surged all over the place and it wouldn't seem to settle down. Lots of stumbling at idle and with light loads. After it broke in a little it got much smoother. The power appears very clean. I didn't scope it, but frequency is dead on 60 hz, and voltage varies from 125 to about 115 depending upon load. When you throw a large load (1500w) at it quickly, voltage drops but it recovers within a second or two as the engine revs. Freq never changes. My most fussy equipment that will NOT run on an open frame generator runs fine with this guy.
The 2200 surge amps is suspicious. If you throw a 1500w+ load, even with eco off and high idle it overloads for 2-3 seconds before it settles down. You'll see a voltage drop while this is happening, but it does catch up to the load. No spikes were observed when shedding large loads (e.g. 1600 down to 200 w or so). If you go past 1500w or so the gennie really struggles to keep up. I guess you could take it to 1800 with very careful application of non-inductive loads (i.e. no motors), but I don't see how the mfg gets away with a 2200w surge rating. It might hold it for a fraction of a second? Note this is very different from the surge rating of the Honda EU2000i, nominally 1600w that can surge to 2000 measured in minutes. No way this Ryobi could handle that.
It runs my furnace, a couple of small fridges cable box, tv, and a couple of lights fine, so it meets our mission even if the ratings are a little overstated. It's quiet, but quiet as a conversation is prob a little overstated unless you're a loud talker. Not objectionable at all, even if you are working around it.
Requires tool access to check the oil, and the filler is awkward to get to (but can be done with a funnel). No separate fuel shutoff- so no way to run the unit dry for storage unless you deplete all fuel. Smells like gasoline all the time. you can sniff it through the on-off switch area.
All in all it's decent, I'd give it at least another star if you could get parts for it at this price.
