I had to return the original generator and order a replacement after 30 minutes of use. The unit was running well, then just stopped. Tried to start it, but it wouldn't turn over. I noticed gas leaking out by the carburetor. Contacted the manufactuer who said I could take it to an authorized service center for repair or contact Home Depot for return and order a new one.
If you ever have to contact the service department for this manufacturer, they are very helpful and understanding.
In contacting Home Depot Internet customer support, I had no problems with them either.
I brought the unit back to my local store (Lodi, NJ), and the return clerk and service clerk who ordered the new unit were great!
Started the new generator and let it run for 30 minutes - so far no problems!

I needed a portable generator that would not clean out my wallet,and it needed to be quite running.This little generator meets my needs very well.It runs my 13 amp skill saw very good.thats a great test under a load.I riped a dry oak 2x6 with it and thats hard lumber.It came packed very well (double boxed and styrofoam packed,free shipping too.I read the dirrectiions,put in the oil,and gas and it fired up on the 3rd pull.,Thats great for a new engine.It fires up on first pull every time after that.Over all i would recomended this generator to anyone needing one this size. major selling points are free shipping.great quality,great price,fast ups shipping,great comunication from home depot from start to when the driver delivered the unit.I would give it and the service a 5 star rating.

I purchased this generator after a major storm hit New Jersey in order to keep a sump pump running. (I even bought the sump pump from HomeDepot.com) I didn't need something big, and I didn't want it to cost a lot either.
Once I put the oil and gas in, it started up on the first pull - nice and easy!
I hope I don't lose power again, but I have this "insurance policy" so I don't have to worry about water in the basement and I should be able to keep the refrigerator running as well.

Bought this for recreational use. Read the manual, but found it lacked thorough details. Couldn't get the unit started for 2 days while trying to follow the startup sequence in the manual. The unit kept stalling to a stop after 1 minute. I finally figured that the manual has it backwards in regards to the fuel line position, so when it indicated to open, it was actually closing the fuel line, and vice versa. Otherwise, the unit is attractive and feels very sturdy. The fuel guage is not good, because it shows 3/4 full, but fuel is almost overflowing. The oil input locations could be better for access. I have the 3000 watt model which came with a wheel kit. Love it so far.

For the money, this seems to be a great product so far. Runs quiet, and so far, easy to start when following instructions. Have used it several times to power electric chain saws and leaf blowers. Wish it had wheels- I'm using an appliance dolly, with a bungy cord, to cart it around, which is working okay so far.
