  • Great customer service

    When I received the generator, it had a broken air filter cover probably due to shipping. I called and they immediately sent a completly new air filter assembly. No questions asked and very quickly. Thanks!

  • Generator - Dude

    Seemed like a great value. Ordered for my husbands birthday. When he started it up it seemed fine but very loud. We plugged in several different items nothing would work. The generator did not put out any electricity on any of the three plugs. Reset the buttons checked the gas still no go. Overstock was great about refunding and sending a call tag to return the item. Save yourself the hassle and don't go there with this item. We are ordering another brand to replace.

  • Saved my butt

    Bought this geni after Hurricane Irene last year and did not use it. This year, it was put to the test during Hurricane Sandy. Ran my fridge, boiler and TV with no problem. A tank of gas lasted me 11-12 hours. A little on the noisy side compared to my neighbors Honda (paid $3000+ and hooked up to his electrical panel, mine did not.) Overall, a decent little workhorse that kept my house warm and bearable during a bad storm.

  • so far, so good

    So far, it seems like a good generator, it took a few pulls to get it initially started, but after that, it started every time with the first pull. It was delivered with no damage to the box, but on further inspection, the bottom frame rail was bent just a little...probably happened at the factory, but I didn't want to deal with the hassle of echanging it, and the damage doesn't affect Anything. My freind commented on how quiet it was. That's it. Thanks

  • Great generator for the price

    We only tested this once we received it to make sure it was working properly, which it was. Not hard to get set up. hopefully we won't have to use it too much. Only gave it 4 stars because I haven't really fully tested it out yet.

Answer This Question

Thank you for your interest. To start this generator: 1. Confirm that there are no electrical devices connected to this generator. Connected devices may increase the difficulty in starting the engine. 2. Confirm that this generator is properly grounded. (See "Ground the Generator" section of the manual.) 3. Turn the fuel valve to the "on" position. 4. Move the choke lever to the "closed" position. 5. Set the engine switch to the "on" position. 6. Slowly pull on the recoil starter handle until a slight resistance is felt. Then pull briskly to start the engine. Gently return the cord into the generator to avoid damage to the starter or housing. Never allow the cord to snap back. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 17, 2012
