4.5 stars, -.5 for the noise. I've had my generator for a number of years now and it works everytime. It has been through rain, hail storms, buried in snow. It's a great generator that powers everything in my trailer including A/C but it is fairly noisy and in smaller campgrounds it bothers the other campers.

I bought this generator as an emergency backup for my boat in the marina here in San Diego. We lost power in this area several months ago and I don't want to get caught without power in case it happens again. I took the unit out of the box, read the instruction book, filled the oil crankcase, poured some gas in the tank, pulled the starter cord 3 times and it started right up. It starts on the first crank every time since then. It's really not too loud and for price, it's hard to beat. Tested it with a hair dryer, a room heater, and a problem at all. A nice feature is that I can plug my shore power cord directly into it without having to use an adapter. I'm very happy with this generator and have told several friends about it.

This is a great generator for the price. It is a little noisy for a small campground or close camping areas. Like most people I got it started on the first 3-4 pulls. Ran like a champ. Had to try out my 13.500 A/C and it powered up with no problem. I really recommend the wheel kit for it.

Great Generator. Little heavy and pushes the noise limit. Used in the mountains and it powered what I needed. Put a wheel kit on it and you can use around home on off season. In the meadow several trailers had a wide range of generators and this wasn't that much noiser. For the price and a starter generator you can't go wrong. Put it on a cargo hauler on back of trailer and just plugged in the 30amp cord. Started on the second pull.

Well built generator, excellent power, great value; but not for campgrounds. Way too loud . My wife compared it to having a lawn mower running next to our trailer. Returned it and bought the Honda 2000i.

Runs my 13,500 BTU A/C great. I can run everything else except the microwave at the same time. Voltage is spot on and the fuel guage is a nice a nice touch. Pretty quiet for a non inverter style. Looks to be well built. Started on the fourth pull out of the box and on the first everytime after. The wheel kit is a must. The best generator out there for the price.
