Excellent Value

"Bought as an insurance policy to protect against extended power outage during a Minnesota winter. We live in the country and with this unit I can keep the heat on, pump water, run refrigeration/freezer and survive until the power comes back on. Unit runs well and is the best I could find for the money. If you buy one, ensure it's reliability when you need it by adding fuel preservative to the tank and run and load the unit substantially at least every 30 days for about an hour to warm it up and drive out any moisture. Also, keep your fuel supply fresh by using fuel from a vehicle that you drive regularly. Keep the vehicle fuel tank full, good advice in winter anyway, and have a transfer pump to fuel your generator. A vehicle with a large fuel tank is best i.e. an SUV."

works good

"this thing runs good and has provided me with power when needed.
Please be aware that there is a lot prep work to do if you are going to hook this up to run the essential things in the house.
The only problems I have had are that the fuel gage after a little while cannot be read, as the fuel does something to the plastic reading area. (A real pain.) I should have it replaced but haven't had the time.
I find it hard to screw the oil check dip stick in as this is plastic also and the type of thread that is used should be changed it is very difficult to get the thread started. (A real Pain.)
When you need to fill the tank with fuel it is also difficult as the fill hole is in the middle of the unit ,wish it was more to one side.

Great Home Generator

Pros: known brand name., with proper maintenance it started right up., easy to move around with wheel kit., large gas tank with gage., starts with rope or with electric start.
Cons: loud not for camping.
Model Number: P5450e
"I bought this generator about 1 ½ years ago for a power backup for my home. I got to really use it for the first time a few weeks ago with a 5 hour power outage. It started up great and ran all I needed in my house including my pump for my well. I am very happy with it. You can get more watts with an off brand but, I wanted a brand name that I could trust. I have recommended this generator to my friends. I gave it 4 stars because it is a loud generator, works great for home backup power."

Great Generator

Pros: portable, durable, easy to operate
Cons: none
Model Number: P5450e
"We needed a generator to provide power to our cabin and for emergency power for our home. Initially we purchased two cheap, off-brand models that both failed after only one years use. We finally got smart and bought an Onan. Works great and we couldn't be happier. We have put many hours on our generator running TVs, power tools, refrigerators, and battery chargers. I'd recommend an Onan because of their functionality and durability. We should have bought one in the first place!"
