Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent generator! I bought this unit a month ago and had a generator panel, power meters and outlet installed to allow easy connection and monitoring. As a test I threw everything at it, including all lights, hot water tank, 1 hp well pump and two 1500w portable heaters. This will never happen in an emergency and was a harsh test but the generator took it! I could hear it struggle with the load but it survived. I ran the generator for 5 hours and burned about 16l of fuel. I thought that was good too. Buy this unit. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right Choice I had been researching generators in the 8000 watt level for a few months, but the Christmas ice storms hurried my decision. We lost our power for 5 days. I was reading a specification sheet on the Briggs and Stratton generator when I received an email from Sears with an offer that price matched any I had seen. Picked up the machine a few days later at the local Sears. Assembled the wheels right on the tailgate, and filled the oil and gas. I figured I would have the wife start it the first time, as she had been unsure if she could operate it if I was not home. Explained the choke to her and she turned the key, and it fired up immediately. We have since installed an external plug and switch panel. We can now run all the important things in our home. All my neighbours are impressed, even the ones that have generators. There are several other brands in my area, but this one is by far the quietest of the 8000 watt models. I can also use it to run power tools anywhere on my acreage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Briggs and Stratton Elite 8000 generator Purchased to power our house in the event of power outage. We did a dry run and the unit carried all essential loads of our house, air conditioning and well pump included. We used only the 30 amp outlet however there is enough capacity to carry additional load on the 110 volt circuit if needed. Good well built unit electric start is a must.
