Fits My NeedReview by Glen
This is exactly the generator I was needing for my winter time camping. It'll run my microwave or my coffee maker (not at the same time but then I knew that before I bought it). I've cut my fuel consumption 80% by only getting what I needed for the season. Will go back to the 6,500 watt when summer gets here and I have to have more power, but for now, this fits the need.

Very quiet and good on gasReview by Railman
I bought this generator to keep our fridges going during a 4 day power outage but I was able to do more. It also produced enough power to also run with the fridges a few lights, or my water pump or my sump pump. It's also light enough that one person can handle it quite easily. It starts very easily so practically anybody could start it. Great generator for the price. (Posted on 7/5/2015)
Just what I needed, when I needed it.Review by Ryan
Ran my freezer, fridge, and sump. It was not the generator I wanted. But when water is running in. I bought the last one on the shelf and I could not be happier. Ran for 72 hours straight without a problem. Also turns out I got a screaming deal. 25% off retail. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
