Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked well I bought this for my boat to keep the batteries charged. They unit worked well, but was a little louder than I expected. The only thing I didn't like was if it wnet into an overload condition, there is no way to reset it other than turning it off and restarting. A breaker would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for bush camping! Bought this unit for camping away from power and people. Supplies my trailer with power for the fridge, furnace, stereo, TV and charges my units battery if I need it to. Don't know how I got along without one for so long.Light and easy to move, start and hook up. I highly recomend this unit for and hardcore campers, very satisfied customer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overload circuit breakers seem to be a problem Used my generator only a few times the overload light came on and would not go out. Sounds like I'm not the only one having these issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from three time a try hope it lasts longer Had one last twenty months second one no spark out of the box and six months later to get a new one so hope it is good generac portable gens are poor or I got the two that had problems it took over 30 days to get a new one but read the warranty it says 30 days or reasonably amount of time. Save the hassle and go for the better one

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely met all my expectations from the box and set up with oil and gas to starting and full operation was a 'cake walk'.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality generator With less than one tank of gas the generator overload light came on with nothing plugged in. Still under warranty retruned to authorized repair shop. The shop had 3 other iX models in for repair. After 6 months in the shop Generac finally replaced the unit. This repair shop will no longer sell Generac products or repair them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved my tail No other generators available found this one at an ace hardware it ran the fridge, dog fence, light, fans and tv during the recent power outage in West Virginia. Yes it's small but it did the job. It ran for 6 hours at a time with out difficulty. Quality product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bill Again I am posting again as I posted before "Not recommending this product" Thjis is an update: I took my generator to Generac in North Bend, Wa. They stated a bad circuit boad and needed replaced after 25 hours and 14 months. They stated a 1 hour labor rate of 85.00 and 10-14 days. I picked it up yesterday and they charged me nothing in labor, even though was past 12 months. Not sure if shop or Generac themselves, but I am assuming an isolated case and will now update to recommend. Thank You generac, you did the right thing. It makes a BIG difference and again I will suggest your product.
