The onboard 7 HP engine delivers up to 13-hours of run time at half load, and it produces a mere 68-decibels at 21-feet, making this generator an ideal choice noise is a consideration.

Good Generator, December 18, 2011 By CHARLIE K. (Long Island, New York - USA)
The generator was delivered on schedule within a few days after placing the order. IT was easy to assemble the legs & Wheels. I agree with other reviews that the oil was a little difficult to put in and a long funnel would be helpful. I just tipped it on its side and filled it that way. After gassing up it started on the 3rd pull and ran smooth. Not too loud, like a lawn mower. I plugged in my small compressor and it ran without problem. I put some fuel stabilizer in the tank and stowed it away in the shed ready to go when we have the next power outage.
Next step would be to wire the 30 amp 220v twist lock circuit in to the house wiring with a manual disconnect/transfer switch to avoid having to run extension cords all over.
I would recommend this unit to others looking for 220v @ 30a in an economical value package that will get the job done when the lights go out without breaking the bank.
Good, So Far., December 8, 2011 By Bob "Bob"
I was a little worried about it coming with damage after all the bad reviews but it arrived in excellent shape. I didn't want to dish out big bucks for a item I might only use once in awhile during an emergency, $400. seemed like a good deal. I put it together in about 40 minutes and then tested it out. It ran fine, but I only ran it for about a hour. Hopefully it will live up to the challenge of a storm when I need it for Hours. I'm happy so far.
It Ran For 9 Days Straight 24/7 .....Awesome, November 22, 2011 By Outofshapedad
I bought this 4 weeks before the big October snow storm in the northeast from Amazon who delivered it within a few days. I was out of power for 9 days and this generator ran 24/7 without any issues powering my furnace, water pump, fridge, T.V. and a few lights. The best thing is that it ran for 10-11 hours on 4 gallons of gas and was quite. I really needed this machine to produce and it never let me down.
Great generator for the money, November 14, 2011 By Engineer_CT
I was hesitant to purchase the generator as it has a Chinese AM Pride engine made by the CHONGQING company whereas I was looking for a better known engine such as Briggs and Stratton, etc. I decided to take a chance on it anyway as I was without power during a October Snowstorm here in CT. After about 40 hours of run time I am pleasantly surprised. The generator starts easily on the second pull and is very quite. The unit runs about 12 hours on 4 gallons of gas...pretty impressive. Weighing in at about 100 lbs, it is easy enough to transport in the trunk of your car. The generator has a great feature set...among these are:
1. Low THD - clean power to power computers and other electronic devices
2. GFCI on the power outlets
3. Has both the 120v L5-30 and the 240v L15-30 twist lock connectors.
4. Wheel kit included
5. 1 year warranty
6. Low Oil light, with Auto shutdown when oil is critically low
7. Voltage Regulation
Time will tell how reliable this AM Pride engine is but so far so good.
Good for the money, November 4, 2011 By Robert J. Mello (Boston, MA United States)
Powered the fridge, freezer and furnace during our recent outage in New England. It did have a tendency to stop running once in a while (started back up easily though). Clearly not a high end unit, but very pleased for the price.
Worked Great Highly Recomended, November 3, 2011 By McFeeFee (New Jersey)
This generator worked great when we needed it most. It was our first Generator so we did not know what to expect but there was no surprises. If you plan to connect it to your Circuit Breaker Panel order the L14-30 Receptacle box they are hard to find during a natural disaster and the matching Extension Cord. For the price you can't beat it.
1. Wheels and feet were easy to install even came with tools.
2. Small footprint.
3. Started on the second pull, ran smooth out of the box.
4. The L14-30 Receptacle made it easy to wire into main panel.
5. Powered - Direct Vent Boiler/w circulator pumps, Refrigerator/Freezer, 50' Plasma, DVR and several lights.
6. Lasted 9+ hours overnight, it would have gone longer but I topped it off anyway
1. Louder than I would have liked but not too loud
2. Fedex was suppose to deliver before 3pm but they didn't come until 4:30 had to wait all day.
Very pleased, November 3, 2011 By Maja Russell
Got this generator for after an ice storm. had it up and running within minutes.
Pros: Easy start, very, very quiet (I have a neighbor who was running a larger generator who lives 200 yards away, and I could hear his over this one), very fuel efficient, long run time, able to run a variety of items at once, smooth operation, and very little to no revving when items are started up or added. Ran for 13.5 hours on 3/4 tank, so more than able to sleep through the night.
Cons: Was not able to run water heater, water pump and oil furnace at once. the generator book was very hard to read and had many different languages. Not well written at all.
Overall: This will not run your whole house for you, but it will keep you warm and with water and lights.
