Very nice generator
We bought this unit as a home back-up for power outages. We haven't had to use it yet but it seems like it will be up to the task!! It is very well made and it honestly started on the first pull of the rope. Im very glad that I went with the Generac brand.

Excellent Generator
Very seldom have to pull more than once & never more than twice so far. Have powered a welder and use it to power a fully functioning kitchen trailer with an air conditioner and on demand electric water heater does just fine.
