too easy, December 7, 2011 By sherman pridham
I purchased the Generac portable generator on-line from Amazon because I was offered interest free payments. Easy, right? AFTER I was approved for purchase, Amazon's Bank emailed that I had gone over my credit limit at Amazon and. I have been a very faithful customer with Amazon for years, and never missed a payment, been late, defaulted, etc. I had not given my credit limit much thought until I got a confusing form email from Amazon's Bank (GE Capital Bank). I was told that I must take care of this issue within three days or the order would be cancelled. I was, in short, treated very poorly and trying to get redress of the problem was like a scene out of Monty Python, except there was no humor. Amazon is easy to order from, but very difficult to contact if there are any issues about payment. Be careful when ordering any item that comes interest free. If the deal sounds easy, you will find out it is not. GE Capital Bank is horrible to TRY to deal with. Amazon needs to take responsibility for the horrible customer service from the bank it chose to handle its credit transactions.
clean power, runs well, November 13, 2011 By kris heikkila (New Hampshire)
Bought this unit for the 2008 ice storm, ran well. Used it again for this year (2011) for 4 more days. Flawless running. OEM batt will die if not left on the included charger.
