Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Home Back Up Took it out of the box attached wheels and legs. Small problem with a punched out piece of metal still in one of the holes. A little bit of a pain to drill out but got it. Filled with oil and stabilized gas hit start button and off we went. Wired home interlock and plug in to breaker panel which was very easy. Shut main breaker off turned on 30 amp breaker and ran the entire home. Not oven or AC although it would run AC and furnace with some things turned off. I was running Well pump and sump pump as well as a refrigerator and freezer. Awesome machine so far. Looking forward to first power outage. I will be turning on the front porch lights to show off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built machine We bought our 76861 to replace our 20yr. old Coleman Powermate which still runs well.This machine will let us run more necessary things, like our well pump and furnace, and with the transfer switch, not have to dance over extension cords.I got 4 different wheels and tires for it, so now it is simple and easy to move over our yard, and in and out of the garage, looks like an open wheel modified from 1970.It started on the first pull after I put a couple of gallons of VP110 in the tank.It will only get 110 or VP SEF to eat, as you can leave it in the machine with no problems.I hooked it up to the house today, and it never seemed to notice the load.It is heavy, strong, and well made.It is well worth my money and I am very happy., with it and the 6853 transfer switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value Just got it. started perfectly without any issues. Easy to move around. Everything as advertised. Have not used it for power yet but have high expectations. Not nearly as noisy as i thought it would be. Not any louder than the poulan pro 6600 which it is replacing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice generator I purchased this generator after purchasing and returning 3 Westinghouse generators. 2 generator was defective and the other 1 would not power what I needed. Purchased the generac and am very satisfied with its performance. No issues with this generator. Provides all the power I need for my camping needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for house and well pump I've only had to use the generator twice due to power outages, but it ran all the lights, two refrigerators (and freezers) and the 1.5 horse well pump perfectly. However, it is a bit loud.
