The Briggs @ Statton 7000 W Portable Generator is working great.

This generator does everything it should. It is guiet and fuel/oil efficient. The previous generator we tried had heavy, toxic discharge. This generator has very low emission. We have almost 100 hours on it already and have done 2 oil changes.

very disappoint

I pick up the unit last month, ran for a minute, but plug in a light and .........nothing, no power.  took it to a repair shop, and get it back 3 weeks later.  I want to install this with the gen-switch but i want to ran it a few time first.  i put a load on it, ran for an hour and it quit again.  no power output, now it is in a repair shop again.  i should have it back next week.

Easy to start

|

We bought this because my husband is handicapped and we need back-up power for the devices that allow him to stay out of a retirement home. We bought this particular model because it was the smallest one with electric start since I have to be able to start it. I start it every month and let it run for a while as the manual says to do and it has always started right away. I just wish some of the smaller units had electric start because this one is almost to heavy for me to move outside. If not for that I would have given it 5 stars.

Reliable/dependable as source of alternate power

|

Have owned since 2018. First winter at my property. Started quickly every time. Serves purpose of back up power source when I lost power over the winter. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Onboard Circuit Breaker Kept Tripping

|

We bought this generator right before Hurricane Irma on 9/5/2017. We got it home, unpacked it and put in our garage in case our power went out to protect our freezers and other items in our home. Fortunately, we never needed the generator and it has been in our garage since then. It had 0.0 hours on it until last weekend 3/16/2019 when we tried to use it for barn building. Husband plugged in circular saw and it kept tripping circuit breaker. Tried other plug ins as required and tried another saw and even drop light. Circuit breakers continued to trip. The gas powered motor ran fine but the onboard plug ins did not work properly. Used the B&S website to find dealer/representative in area so we could take to get checked out! Have had a hard time trying to get issue resolved! All certified Briggs and Stratton dealers ONLY service gas motor, NO ELECTRICAL ISSUES. Carried it back to Farmers & Builders Ace Hardware and it still isn't working. We are trying to get them to fix it or either get our money back since it has never worked. Thankfully we did not need it during Hurricane Matthew or Micheal!!
