well built

Purchased as a replacement, since my Home lite generator blew up at 2am in the last storm we had! With the gas cap in the middle of the fuel tank, it's not the easiest to fill! Other than that very happy so far!


the farm's well is 560' when the power goes out we can still pump water to the house and not sound like we're running a tractor and a log splitter...

love my generator

Used it this week and it worked beautifully!

A great purchase

Well, Hondas are Hondas. Reliable, well built, well designed. Oh, and instructions you can actually understand. The wheel kit and handle assembly were pretty basic. Watch out for the bolts on the handle locking-clasp, they are bigger than the others. I learned the hard way and stripped two holes in the handle bracket. I went out tand got two smaller bolts the next moring to fit into the holes and used two nuts. Perfect. The generator started easily, and is pretty quiet. We'll use this as an emergency back up to our household electric system so the ease of starting and the noise level was important to us. This generator fits that need. Easy to store. Great features like the auto throttle that powers up or down when a 240 appliance kicks in or out. Saves gas. So far, a great purchase. Great price. Easy shipping, and heck that was free. Can't say enough about Electric Generator Depot as well. Responsive. Answered all my questions. Helped me track the order. Thanks.

Seem's to be very well built as honda should be for the price.

It came in as promised on time. It was crated very well and took about an hour to unpack and assemble the wheels - bars and rear stands. I filled it with oil and gas with STA-BIL mixed hooked up the battery. It cranked rite up and is pretty quiet. As I have not needed it yet I don't know what all I can power but as for now I am very pleased
