Unit arrived A-Ok. FedEx took it off the truck and placed it exactly where I wanted it so I could unpack it easily. No damage to shipping container and all parts were present. Easy to read directions and had it unpacked and put together in less than 2 hours with phone interruptions, etc. Hooked the propane up, filled the oil, and after 2 try’s with the start switch - whamo it started up!
Usually things don’t work that easily for me.. feel like we will be ready for whatever Mr. Winter brings…electrician will be coming in a week to get it all wired in.
DuroMax XP5500EH 4500W/5500W Dual Fuel Electric Start Generator New
The generator came as sead but the box was crushed at one corner when I opened the box and removed the generator it had a bent in end cap cover on the motor. It worked fine but factory pure sent me a new cover right away. I did try out the generator with 10 gadge 30 ap cord to some appliances, worked just fine . I built a shed for it to say in and run out of it so its ready to go at any time . Now its a waiting thing for a real power outige . It feels good just knowing we are prepared. Thank you factor pure for your very good and friendly service .
Packaging box was damaged with instruction package outside the box. I feared that the generator would be damaged but i have not found any defects thus far. Wheel andhandle assembly was stmple althogh it was noted that the shipping brace might have been attached by Godzilla. With MY tools I was able to remove the studs. Have run only for 25 minutes on propane and there is power output. I cannot comment upon actual usage, yet. I anticipate difficulty changing oil and doing other maintenance owing to my age and disability????
