I love having a generator

We lost our power for 4 days this winter, but the gererator saved us from moving to a hotel.  The Briggs and Stratton 5000 ran almost everything in our 3 bedroom house.  It couldn't handle the dryer when the well pump kicked on.  My only warning to anyone buying a generator is to be ready to pay at least another $700 to $1000 to have a transfer switch installed correctly.

Briggs & Stratton 5000 Watt Portable Generator..... is LOUD!

Wow is that machine loud! I only have 5 hours on it... enough to break it in for the next 50 hours... It ran the fridge and other major appliances just fine. The toaster and coffe pot put more of a load on it than the fridge....Whether or not it had a "load" on it it ran at 3,600 rpm's. There is no governer or any other sort of no "load" idle on it. The manual claims 10 hrs for every 5 gal of gas at a half load which ain't so bad... I cannot attest to that. Perhaps when the engine is broken in. I gave it two stars because of the loudness and that it will not idle with no load on it! I'm not sure on how durable it will be when it come to letting it run in inclement weather either...

Dependable Generator

|

After working hard in my construction job for nearly 20 years, my old Briggs and Stratton generator had to be retired. So where else to shop but Sears for a new generator. They have a huge selection of Briggs and Stratton generators to choose from. Their website makes it so easy to fully view each model and look at each units specifications. After finding the one that best suited my job, I was happy to find out that I had surprise points and coupons that made my purchase all the more worthwhile shopping at Sears. I even scored ************* by having the new generator shipped to my local Sears store. Picking it up was a breeze. In less than 5 minutes I was loaded and heading home. Thank you Sears!

This comment "Good, but the 240 circuit breaker trips well below 30a" from 8/5/14

If you take a 240v 4 pin plug and try to "adapt" it to a 120v 3 pin plug you are only ever going to be able to take advantage of 1/2 the generator's power output. so 1/2 of 5000w and apx 20amps max. SOLUTION: BUY A SINGLE PHASE GENERATOR OR ONE THAT IS SWITCHABLE TO SINGLE PHASE ONLY

DO NOT BUY

|

I purchased this item and after 125 hours the engine blew. I did the maintenance as directed but because It was older than 1 year the manufacturer denied my claim to have it replaced. I have the pictures and email to prove it but sears does not have a place to post. See my ****** review.

Performs as described

I bought this generator a month ago and used it during a 2-day power outage. It started on the first pull and performed flawlessy providing current for some lights, a refrigerator, a computer, a TV, a water pump and other appliances at various times.

Good, but the 240 circuit breaker trips well below 30a

|

I bought this in an RV "emergency" - record hot temperatures and the Onan in our RV was shutting down while driving down the road. Pulled in and bought this as well as a hitch based platform to put it on.
We've got an RV with a 30A 120V plug, so we adapt one leg of the 30A 240 plug. The generator hasn't ever failed to start in more than 2 years.

Complaints:
1) The circuit breaker trips. That twist-lock plug should be good for 30A and when we run the AC and the RV-fridge, the circuit breaker survives for about 30 minutes. Although I haven't measure the actual load, I can tell you that we don't trip 30A circuits at home and we don't trip 30A breakers at the RV park. The RV has a 4000 watt Onan that can do both just fine.

2) It's fairly loud. Think lawn tractor. It's not a Honda and I'm not unhappy with it's performance, but like most generators of this size and price point, it does make some noise.

3) Don't leave the gas tank empty or half full. I've seen condensation on the inside of the tank, which eventually puts water in the gas. To get it out, you've got to disassemble the tank drain and flush it all out.
The tanks is metal - which contributes to the condensation. Keep the tank full to avoid this.
