Easy to use & Great valueReview by Rich
Paid for itself with first use. Must be sure to follow starting instructions exactly ( label on generator) or you will have trouble starting ! Plan on having a few back-up propane tanks which are easier to handle and safer than gasoline. (Posted on 4/15/13)
Great MachineReview by AL
After watching people stand on line for gasoline for their generators I decided to look for other options. This machine is great, quiet, efficient, and provides back up power without the need to stand on line. Propane is easier to get and provides a cleaner source of energy in a pinch.
