Good product, January 9, 2012 By H. Whalen
For this low of a cost this is a very nice product.
No problems so far. Shipping was fine, no damage.
No problem with assembly.
I added the oil and gas, and it started up on the second pull.
Runs smooth and slightly quieter than my lawn mower.
The wheels are a must have feature.
Plan on spending another couple of hundred dollars on extension cords - heavy gauge, 75-100 feet long each. ( a cost I didn't budget for. )
Put a copper coated grounding rod in the ground to be safe too. They sell them at hardware stores in 8' lengths by 5/8" diameter with a point on one end.
So far so good! And I do me GOOD!, November 22, 2011 By RWQ
I researched quite extensively many brands before I bought this generator. Truthfully I was all set to buy a different brand & model and at the last minute found this on Amazon thru Northern Tool. While I would have liked to have bought a bigger generator, I felt the pricing, options, small footprint for storage, and lower fuel consumption were all a big plus in my decision to go with this model. I have not filled it with oil or fuel yet, so I can't comment on the actual performance of it right now, but intend to. As far as the product itself, it arrived early and in perfect condition and appears to be of very good quality for the money. I can't wait to try it out! Hope I don't even need it this winter, but I'm ready if I do! It should handle our emergency needs quite well. Gas Furnace motor, Fridge & Freezer, TV & computer, some lights, a microwave and a coffee pot. What else do you REALLY need in an emergency. As long as the timing of use is thought out, this little gem should be a good fit and the money saved on this smaller unit will come in handy elsewhere. Right now I couldn't be happier with this generator.........after I start it up we shall see! Amazon.com came thru again, and Yellow Freight did a GREAT job on delivery. GO TEAMSTERS!
Filled with oil and put 2 gal. of gas in it. Turned fuel on, choked it, pulled the starter rope twice and it was purring like a kitten! Extremely quiet, and everything works as it should. I'm really happy with this purchase, but yesterday found that Menard's had a Honeywell 5500 w/ elec start reg price $729 on sale for $499...........would be the better buy now and had I not already bought this unit I would have gone the Menard's route. This Powerhorse 4000 is a GREAT little generator for the $369 price tag but after adding shipping, I wish I would have waited a week and bought the Honeywell 5500 at Menard's.
