"There is a reason that there are no decibal ratings anywhere on this generator. It is definitely loud! I was planning on using this generator for camping an tailgating, but after hearing it, it is going to be way too loud to use. It did, however, start up right away on the second pull. It is also a great price for the size. If you do not mind the noise, this would be a great option. There is no way that this would work for a campsite."
This unit delivers more than double the Wattage from a Gallon of Gasoline as some competitors, such as Harbor Freight.
But I'm not fond of the Honeywell's aesthetics. I hate it when Visual Designers get involved. I'd much prefer a no-nonsense Industrial look to it. The Honeywell looks like a chubby little pig ! (they might as well mold it in Pink and give it a Curly Tail)."
"We recently had 2 tornadoes and power outages for 3 days in our area. This little unit, kept the refrigerator and sump pumb going. This was a great relief, since we usually do not have that long of a power outage. It is easily handled, and easily used.. Everyone should have one of these tucked away for such an emergency. I am so glad I had it on hand."
"I had read reviews that said this machine had problems starting but for me it stared right up on the second pull. It ran my leaf blower. I'm looking forward to using it on the houseboat. My wife mentioned that it was a bit noisier than the Honda but I had it in the garage and the Honda was out in the open."
