Hello all, first time poster here. I live on Long Island and we are about to get hit hard by this storm. I was scrambling to buy a genny yesterday and FINALLY got lucky and called Lowes and they just got a emergency shipment in so i waiting in line and bought this genset. Well I must say I am a bit disappointed because I did reviews on this genset(yes after I bought it due to circumstances) and overall it seemed to get pretty bad reviews. A bunch of people even said it should have been recalled because of the fuel leak problem. Well we just went back to Lowes to get another extension cord and I asked the manger about exchanging it( when we bought it they said absolutely NO returns). I told him I already out gas in it and ran it and probably would again when we lose power today/tonight. He was a bit leary but said if it was NOT a return but an exchange it should not be a problem. Boy was I happy this $700 price tag is a lot for us. This generator is very convenient with the handle and wheel so i wish I could keep it but there really are an overwhelming amount of bad reviews. Jut curious if anyone else had any experience with this? Thanks.
