    the generator seems to work fine, I have not yet used it for the purpose I bought it. Two issues, I received two generators. The first on came damaged, The packaging was horrible and the product seemed to be a repack. Overstocks customer service was excellent and they sent a new one right away. The next one was packaged correctly. The two generators look different?

    This generator started up on the second pull. It runs great. I bought it for emergency power in case of a power outage. I like its compact size and design. The manual is very clear and helpful. I did a lot of research on different brands and models and am very pleased I purchased this one.

    I got this generator to use as a “summer” generator at the cabin. It works great for running a small 5k btu AC and keep my battery topped off for lighting and tv.

    I bought this awhile ago but with the recent hurricanes I've been so happy I spent the money on it. It's been a real life saver for powering smaller appliances.
