Good-ish start

" Delivery was helpful. Generator arrived intact. Very easy set-up. Weighs a ton, and is for an old guy just barely "portable" by wheeling. I couldn't get it in or out of a vehicle on my own.
Wonky instruction manual. Obviously not written by a native English speaker. But the information was there.
Started up and ran fine in two short tests. Seems to be powering the items we want powered: 'fridge, well pump, hot water heater, a few lights. Haven't had to actually use it yet, so time will tell. (Hoping that spending all this money on back-up power will mean we never need it again.)
One small problem: the dual-lever circuit breaker for the 120/240 outlet is unreliable. It immediately trips off when we try to switch it On. Flipping several/five times in quick succession got it to stay on for our tests.
Called AllPower and they are supposedly sending a new breaker that I can supposedly install myself with the supposed phone help from a technician. I'm hoping that's true because the darn thing is way to heavy to return. "

" The product is working the way it was described. I followed the instructions and it started and ran perfectly supplying the designated output. Although, the All Power Service Department was of little help with attaching the unit to my home propane supply, it eventually was accomplished. The unit is supposedly designed for a 20 pound cylinder only.
During the next electrical outage, we will see how it performs electrifying my home. "

Propane versus gas

,
February 5, 2014
By Shauer99
from New Jersey
" After several gas powered generators I upgraded to a propane unit. The ability to leave it sit for extended periods without concern of fuel breakdown issues was my main reason. The ethanol in the fuel here in Jersey breaks down very quickly and fouls the fuel systems very quickly. I maintain small equipment for a living and advise anyone who does not use their generator nearly everyday to purchase a propane unit. Buy a larger unit then you need as the propane is not as powerful a fuel as gas is so a larger unit will assure you that the power you will need will be delivered. The other up side is storing propane can be indefinite as long as it's in a safe place. "

Easy to operate and assemble

" The last 3 Octobers in New Jersey have really been problematic for power outages. Large storms and hurricanes haven't treated our state well. This year I purchased this as a whole house generator as I'm tired of being without power for over 9 days and living with the in-laws. I assembled this generator and realized it was very solid and a little on the heavy side. Moving it on the wheels with the built in handles is not too difficult. I added oil and hooked it up to a propane tank, followed the starting instructions, and turned the key. The generator fired up easily with no problems. I ran it for about 10 minutes to test out how it would power my home. Everything seems to be working perfectly. I'm going to eventually hook this up to my house propane tank but for now it runs off a gas grill bottle. Overall I'm please with the performance. Only time will tell for reliability but I'm glad I don't have to stay with the in-laws for a week again. Ben Franklin said both house guests and fish begin to stink after three days. Thanks to this generator, I'll be able to weather the storms in the privacy of my own home. "
