Wheel Kit

"I have had this wheel kit less than a year but have used it several times. It is built with good quality but the information on the Northern Tool website is a bit incorrect. The axle is 3/8" rod, not 5/8" solid stated in the information. The axle works but should probably be increased to 1/2" for longevity. Larger wheels would be helpful for moving across soft surfaces such as sandy soil or turf. I have found that reversing the handle position so that it extends over the generator provides much greater balance for someone taller than 5" 0". When mounted in the intended position, the balance is near the knees of a 6" 0" person but if mounted in a reverse position it raises the balance close to the waistline, making it much easier to move and much less strain on one's back. As a side note, I added an extra clamp assembly because 2 clamps on one side and 1 clamp on the other side did not seem adequate. I would purchase this item again if I had a need and I would recommend it highly for someone that has the appropriate portable generator for which it is designed."

"Works better than expected. The quality of the materials is excellent and it went on without a hitch. Sure makes moving the generator from place to place much easier. I will never again buy a generator without getting the wheel kit. Nice finish on the handle for gripping in cold weather. All of the parts are good quality and should last indefinitely. Definitely would recommend. You will ask yourself how you ever did without it."
