Bought this generator about 6 months ago. After some minor assembly, it fired up with 2 pulls. Stored it until a couple of weeks ago. Lost power for about four hours and this performed like a champ. I am currently writing this review under generator power. The northeast just got hammered with 24+ inches of snow. Power went out about 20 hours ago, this machine has been running like a champ since then, and I am still on the first tank of gas. I spilled a little gas on the tank and it screwed up the painted finish, but other than that, this thing is a workhorse. I bought a kit and wired the entire house except for the dryer. This thing has no problem powering the whole house without skipping a beat. Highly recommend!!!
Started on first “half” pull.MUCH quieter than anticipated. The fuel filter did leak, (readily available at any auto parts store). Runs fantastic, even at altitude, (5280 ft at home, 9600 ft at property).Heavy, well built.(Didn’t realize it does not have “auto-idle”)I am very satisfied.
Super little generator, charged up the battery for starting, and BOOM, good to go. Works great.
Great Generator at a great price..!
Great Generator, Quiet, Powerful, Electric Start, arrived on time and as promised.
A lot of power for a 5,000 watt generator..!
Had this Generator since Hurricane Sandy. Ran fine throughout that power outage.
Used it for out side projects instead of running an extension cord from in the house.
Has a shut down when oil has to be changed and is accurate.
One nice thing is you bring the outlets in the house, not left in the weather.
I bought this generator last year and it has served me very well. Recently, we had power outage for two days due to a storm in the northeast. Started in two pull and ran for 26 hours continuous... running a 1/2 hp sump,refrigerator, some lights in the living room as well as the microwave and coffee maker. Though it would rev up under load for few seconds, it would quickly stabilize.
One thing i got issue was the oil change. The manual tells you to use to remove the oil drain plug and the washer with a wrench. I can not find any such thing on this generator. Accidentally, i found that the the oil pan has two ports one on each side. So i tilted the generator and drained out the oil. Filling it up was another story as there is no oil gauge, you have to use a long neck funnel and keep adding oil until it overflows... makes mess on the ground.... Other than that, it's a solid machine and runs in all weather..rain or snow.
I purchased this generator last year after Hurricane Irene. I tested it and stored it for the year. tested again prior to the storm Sandy. It has been running now for 10 hours straight with no problems. We expect the power to be out for another 10 days thank goodness I have it.
I chose this product for use as a home backup power supply primarily due to the following: 1) weather proof 2) long run time on tank 3) detachable power panel.The generator started on the first try after assembly and fluid addition. With the wheels and handles it is easy to move and manuever around my garage and yard.
Only 4 stars for now as I have not actually used it during an outage, yet.
I purchased this generator with all best hope that I never have to start it. However living on the Gulf coast of Florida for 20 plus years I know that the arrival of the next hurricane is only a matter of time.
The down side of regular generators is that they must operate outside but they are not water proof. So you either hope that it will stop raining (not likely) or you build some type of cover for it (not always practical).
This unit allows the engine to stay safely outside while the distribution panel is brought indoors to power the circuit panel.
The best part of my purchase experience was the delivery.
By motor freight on the day that was convenient for me, delievery by fork lift to inside my garage, and the driver waited for me to unpack it and took the pallet with him!
All for $50 bucks. Great job Estes.
Love this Machine , Its Great started on First Pull , works with all the things i need in the House. Refridge ,Furnace , A/C , lights , Computer and Tv , Plus ... no more problems when the storm hits , good to Go ...ready to rock and roll..(easy to set up wheels go on , then rubber feet , add oil and Gas) .
