XP8000E generator

"This is a good generator but it has some shortcomings a generator this expensive should not have. The charger you get with it should be a permanent maintenance charger and not a wall wart that will overcharge the battery and ruin it.
The clean power is great. It is very heavy but has pretty good wheels and a lift hook. large fuel tank.
Do not leave 10% ethanol in it or it will need a carb cleaning or replacement as all small engines cannot handle this fuel well. Dont even leave treated fuel in it becuase it will still fouls it up after a couple of months. Battery is hard to get to. Should have auto choke instead of a manual choke.
