....The winter of 2013-2014 was brutal for suburban Philly this year. The WORST was when we lost power in the entire area for over 5 days. I had bought this Briggs 8000 watt portable generator over the objections my sweetheart, about 2 YEARS before..... and got a power switch installed too. I was in deep doodoo with her......
...Until we lost power for 5 days. We quickly set up for the first REAL NEED deployment, and she started up...(USE GOOD GAS AND A FUEL ADDITIVE) immediately. The electric start is WORTH THE PRICE for us over 50. Just do it, dumdum.
...Anyway,.our local convenience store chain (WAWA)was able to bring in big units to power their stores and their gas pumps, within 2 days. That was great since I had about 7 gallons in the generator, 2 - 6 gallon cans and a 2 1/2 gallon can. I able to keep my gas hot air heat system, WIFI, garage door openers, sump pumps, microwave, fridge, and a ton of lights...AND....give my neighbor 2 lines into their house as well, and never taxed the 8000. We actually had the whole neighborhood over that second evening for a pot luck dinner AND DRINKS..(and a couple more since we didn't drive) and everyone warmed up and charged their phones and other chargables while we partied.
...This Briggs worked 80% of the time, for 5 days.....and never hiccupped.
..........I was turned from the family goat, to the family GLOAT,............and it felt rrrrreal good.
This was purchased primarily to use as a power back up and occasionally to use for power tools. Set up was easy out of the box, instructions are very good. The electric start worked perfectly the first time and it isn't real loud, no worse than our little 1200watt generator. We haven't had an occasion to need it yet but I expect it will suit our needs just fine.
After a lot of research, decided on this unit because when parts or repairs may be needed they will be available.
Have not used it much yet, no power outage yet.
