Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
This generator is awesome. Its quiet ( for a Generator ) and runs smooth. It's great piece of mind having this being prepared for power outages. The wheel package you can get is great also. The directions on the wheel package isn't the greatest. A great buy!

Quick delivery in 4 days. No damage to shipping box or to generator. Removal of shipping braces and set-up was easy and took about 45 mins. After adding oil and 1/2 gal of gas the generator started on the first pull. I let it run a few minutes then shut it down then started it again an then let it run 45 mins until out of gas. I recomment the wheel kit, but had to order it from Amazon. This generator is made in China, but I was impressed with the quality. Excellent value.

This generator started with one pull straight out of the box (after filling with oil and gas). Was very impressed with this product. VERY quiet for a generator. Have only used it a dozen times or so, but it starts with one pull every time. Would definitely recommend this to any one and every one.

I ordered several generators for Christmas gift to our kids. 3 of the 5 worked well, but the other 2 wouldn't start or were damaged. Overstocked sent us 2 new ones that worked will. All 5 will start on the first or second pull. They are also very quiet. If you have problems with them, deal with Overstocked not the Co. that provides the product to Overstocked.

I haven't had a problem with this generator axnd it helped us power several appliances, lights etc. My only issue is that the exhaust area started to "RUST" when left out in the cold as where it needed to be. A bit of oiling or paint will fix that problem though.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is good except that the exhaust area started to rust in the cold winter for barely 2 months.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Pretty accurate
I ordered several for my married children. The first one opened was damaged in the shipping. I called the 800 number and was sent a replacement part, but it was incomplete. I have sent pictures of the parts damaged to the maker and am still waiting for the right parts. I am hoping the will make it right or I will send them all back.
I think the generators will be ok if they aren't damaged in shipping.

I purchased this generator as a backup for power outtages, and haven't had to use it yet. I will update my review on use later, if possible.
First, I will say that I did NOT like the packaging. The generator came in a box, but also wrapped in a plastic bag which was covered in some sort of oil. It smelled disgusting and was not pleasant at all to open. I don't know if something got on it at the factory or it was designed this way, but very unappealing. The quality seems to be pretty good with a couple of quirky exceptions. Since you will definitely need a wheel kit for moving this thing around, they were tricky to get on. The generator, without the wheel kit, comes with these little rubber feet on the bottom, and you have to get an axle over that. It's doable, but you'll need a clamp of some sort (or someone with strength).
The directions (e.g., unpacking) are horrendous. The pictures are dark and the parts aren't marked, so even though they include a list, you don't know if you really have them all unless you just count by process of elimination--not exactly ideal. My hope, of course, is that I go to use it and it really is a very easy start, but I can't add anything to that for now. For the price, I would probably buy it again.

does it ake an oil/gas mixture or just staight gas ?? does a funnel come with to fill the oil ?? on Apr 17, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This unit is a 4-stroke engine so it does not need to mix gas but it does need to add 4-stroke engine oil to the engine and put in gas before starting. It only comes with the instruction manual. overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 18, 2012
You can find the manual to this item here: http://www.generatornation.com/tag/durostar-ds4000s-manual-pdf/ . It will help you to determine the type of oil that is best used in this machine.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 5, 2012
