Good Generator

from Memphis, TN
"Received the generator (store pickup) in good condition, it was well packaged. Installed wheel kit 165620, fit was excellent and the kit is well-made. The generator is heavy - twice the weight of my last one - but it is easy to maneuver with the wheels on. Added oil and fuel, and the motor literally started on the first pull of the rope. I anticipated needing at least two or three pulls for it to suck fuel into the carb, so I wasn't even pulling hard on that first try. I connected a modest electrical load, the generator ran smoothly and supplied power with no problems; ran it for 20 minutes or so. After I've used it more, I may be ready to upgrade the rating to 5 stars, but I hate to do that when I've only used it so lightly."
