Great Value Package

Pros: battery came with generator., beautiful looking generator., solid 14 horse power
Cons: too heavy for one person to lift.
Model Number: OFF ETQ 7250 Watt Running Portable Generator
"Perfect backup generator for power outages. Great looking machine and mine came with a battery. Most of them don't. All I had to do was put on the pulling handle and the axle with 2 U-bolts and put on the wheels. Connected the -ve to the battery and added 1 litre of 10w30 oil, gas and it started right away. Nice quiet machine."

Very good generator

Pros: starts easily, ample power, electric start, easy to operate, runs smoothly and steadily, fairly simple initial assembly, battery included
Cons: weighs 250 pounds
Model Number: ETQ 7250
"The generator starts easily and runs very smoothly. The included battery is a big help in cold weather. I bought this generator to link to a transfer switch I had an electrician install. The whole setup works flawlessly and powers most of my home's circuits. It'll make a big difference in our lives during the extended and frequent power outages we endure. The electrican tested the generator's output voltage and found it to be well calibrated.
I might add that this generator's motor has a relatively low noise level -- more of a loud purr than a put-put.
Be aware, though that even though it has sturdy wheels it is heavy and takes two people to lift it if you need get it up a step, etc. But to compensate for that, the generator comes complete with an attachment that enables it to be safely hoisted with a crane."

Great Deal!

Pros: electric start at great price
Model Number: ETQ 7250
"I had been looking to replace my 5250W gen with a bigger one with electric start for my home and business and when I saw the price I was shocked. I looked at other reviews online and all were good. The unit arrived in a few weeks and all was in order as expected. Minor assembly took about an hour. The battery came charged - most don't even come with the battery. After assembly, fuel, and oil the unit fired right up and ran great. Seems reasonably quiet compared to others, maybe not as quiet as I had hoped. The unit appears to be very well made, doesn't seem flimsy or cheap in any way -considering the price I was a little apprehensive. I have not had to use it as of yet so I don't have much more to say other than so far so good - I would definitely recommend."

generator review

Pros: easy to use -starts quickly, quiet - good power
Cons: axle does appear to support the weight
Model Number: TG72B12
"The unit appears to be a good generator however I am disappointed in myself. I should have read the print and fully understood what I was buying. For $85 more could have gotten the TG72K12 which has auto throttle, ETI meter, GFCI outlets. I looked online the ETQ 7250 -my mistake for not fully comparing the two.
However for an emergency generator it will work well. Ran it for a short time but it appears to use only a little gas - that is good when it is an emergency and gas is not available except what you have on hand. The unit provides the 120VAC @ 60 Hz – well within spec

Excellent buy

Pros: very sturdy
Cons: would have liked a bigger gas tank
Model Number: TG72B12
"Got it up and running, fully assembled in less than an hour. Seems well made and was not as loud as others I've heard. I'm going to pair it up with the recommended Transfer Switch so if a hurricane or whatever kills our power we will be ready."

Great Buy!

Pros: battery start, low price

"Generator arrived in a timely manner in great shape. Unpacked and filled with oil and gas. It started up immediately. I have a couple of other generators that are extremely difficult to get started. Love the battery starter on this product."
