Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, High Quality Generator I purchased this generator, as luck would have it, one week before Hurricane Sandy hit up in NJ. It got us through the ten days we were without power and made the experience tolerable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product, Great Investment! I bought this generator to back up my house when the power goes out, and power our deer hunting cabin. The features I really appreciate start with the battery charger that keeps the generator ready to go at any time, the quality engine that is powerful and efficient without being very loud at all. The heavy duty rubber outlet covers, the folding T handle that locks in when you lift it up. The easy to maneuver wheel and tires, and the best part of this generator is it's huge capacity. With 7000 running and up to 8750 surge watts this generator has more than enough wattage to keep the lights on, the heat going, and we can even cook while everyone else is looking for their flashlights. I love this generator and am very glad I didn't cheap out and buy a china made no name generator. I can get parts in a day or two if I need them and the quality is far superior.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from DO YOUR MAINTENANCE!!! Growing up we had several B&S products and rarely had problems with them. I bought this generator for those rare times it is essential. Set my home up for the "big event", did a "dry run", ran the generator and it worked, so naturally I feel safe! Umm, not so much! The "big event" actually happened. A hurricane like storm (125 year type) hit the Northwest and hundreds of thousands of folks were without power. No problem, I have my house set up...except with only 5.5 hours on my generator, it will not even fire! After chatting with several guys we determine it is not getting fuel. I pull the carb (in the dark) and clean the main jet (which is covered in nasty green gunk) and put back in, it runs just fine. As it turns out, since I was a young boy, we have garbage gas and YOU MUST DO REGULAR MAINTENANCE or this is what happens. I also had this same exact thing happen on a mower. Times have changed and the gas is ethanol laced and is hard on small engines. Add the gas products and buy the good gas, drain the tanks and carbs when not in use. Otherwise you are not going to have the product when you most need it! Hard to hate on B&S when you don't do your maintenance. Once up and running, we had plenty of power and kept the food cold and the house warm! Have I mentioned, do your maintenance?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product from Briggs & Stratton Purchased this generator based on ratings in Consumer Reports. Also spent time reviewing comments on the internet who already owned this generator-most comments were very positive. Have not actually had to use the generator yet, but after doing some minor assembly, I fired it up and it ran perfectly. Also make an effort to support our American companies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power in a Portable!! I purchased this generator to replace a Sears Generator I purchased 15 years ago. The old one still works, but I wanted to have an electric start. After assembling it, and it was easy to do, I started it on the second pull of the manual starter. It also started quickly on the electric starter. Nice design and very easy to move about on the wheels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy start Easy to start, runs my entire home during power outage (with connection to breaker panel)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use Bought the Briggs and Stratton Elite 7000 Watt a few months ago. Only took about 45 minutes from box to start. Very easy to understand assembly instructions and operation of unit. Tested the unit hooking up to refrig, two portable heaters, three lamps, 32 inch tv and electric chain saw. Handled everything without a glitch, even when the refrig cycled. I am sure that it could handle more devices. The only con to this generator (maybe all B&S) is the noisey muffler. As recommended by Consumer Reports, wear ear protection while working in the vicinity of operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so good I have had this generator a couple weeks, and I have only run this generator long enough to check it out and to check out my installation. I have it installed through an outside plug and a six-circuit transfer switch into my house power panel. It has started right up the three times I ran it, and it powered up the lights and small appliances just fine.
