Bought this generator as part on a plan to mitigate damages caused by te loss power during a winter storm or hurricane event. I am pleased with this GN.
Everyone at FactoryPure and A-ipower have been great to work with and the generator is very impressive. It is well made and runs great I highly recommend it.
I was unsure about some of the details and lack of reviews prior to buying this relatively unknown brand, but I can assure you I have been very impressed with this unit. For starters, the engine MFR states the lubrication is done via "splash" ... it is pressurized, complete with a spin-on filter (which I replaced the installed filter with a larger Motorcraft filter) and oil cooler mounted to the side of the engine. The only ding I have run into is the oil drain plug - that the dirty engine oil has no direct path into a catch pan; the old oil hits a frame crossmember and travels all over the lower frame. The installed oil filter was full of dirty oil from when the factory test fired the engine, and perhaps broke it in for some period...I hope. There was about 6oz of old engine oil in the sump and filter. Be sure to dump all this nasty oil and change the filter before filling with the supplied oil (it will take about 1.75 quarts with a new filter. The engine runs smooth ... a bit loud, however. The exhaust pipe is 1.25" OD. I have obtained an adapter to open this to 2" and will try to attach a free flow external muffler at some point.
The frame is extremely sturdy, with excellent welds and very hard and durable paint on all surfaces.
The generator wiring harness is nothing short of very high quality, with heavy insulation and cables well encased by plastic split conduit. Windings appear to be copper, not aluminum as on cheaper models. Voltage is rock solid, although there is a very small fluctuation of frequency, per the supplied meter 60-62hz. I have not yet verified this and the claim of 5% noise with an oscilloscope.
Fit and finish are very well done...I highly recommend this generator.
Product is fine but delivery is awful. Was promised delivery on Jan. 23rd. Product arrived in North Carolina on Jan 19 and sat at terminal in Charlotte for 10 days while I waited. Finally had to drive to Siler City (2 hours) to pick it up myself.
