Rated 1 out of 5 by from Briggs and Stratton - 8000 I bought this a month ago and I wish I never did. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Off Grid with the 8000 I like this machine although I wish it was fuel injected ,and the battery is not good for below 0 temps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Several places near my home will service this. We were without power for 1-week during Christmas 2013 and vowed we'd never let that happen again. I did some basic research and called a few service shops in my county to ensure they would perform warranty work on this generator, I made the purchase online and had the generator within a few days, the instructions allowed me to have it assembled within 30-minutes, I put premium gas and oil in and it fired up immediately, provided a steady 120-volts out of all of the necessary sockets, I hooked it up to the house and we'll be able to run everything from our deep water well to our furnace and a burner or two on the electric stove. Life is good, or at least it will be when we lose power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional value for your money. Given the the weather related events lately and the power outages I decided it was time to have a reliable back up power supply. I believe this is the right choice as the price was very good for the size of the generator and the company name is recognized as being around for many years producing quality engines. Since I have purchased it I have not yet had a power outage to test it out on, but I have the peace of mind knowing that I am ready and prepared.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best backup generator for your buck Bought generator, was easy to assemble, added the oil and gas and since it came with a fully charge good battery it started on first crank of the engine. It ran for 10 mins then it stalled. It would then start with the choke on but it would stalled immediately. Brought it to my local B & S authorized repair shop and they had it repaired in no time. It was minor, just a defective part in the carburetor. That is why I bought a Briggs & Stratton. They have authorized dealers located everywhere, even in small towns. This generator has more than enough power to run our home comfortably. I would recommend this generator to anyone who wants a generator of this size, Very pleased with my purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable i own two of these generators now, they start great and run great. one of them has over 3000 hours on it and it starts like it is new. with that being said there are some things that will wear out on them. the brushes for generator have shown to last 1000 hours and solenoid for starter about 2500 hours. both of these things are cheap to replace and take under 10 mins to replace. i will stick with briggs and stratton, they have proved to be good in my experience

Rated 5 out of 5 by from durable I own two of these now and they are very reliable. my newer one has over 3000 hours on it and still runs great. the only issue is the brushes on the generator. the brushes only last about 1000 hours, but they are cheap and can be replaced in under 10 mins.
