I recently purchased this generator as a gift for my parents and as some kind of security for them to have backup power in the event of a power outage. They recently went through hurricane Harvey in Houston, TX and although they didn’t lose power or get flooded in, this was definitely a wake-up call to be prepared for an outage that would exceed 24 hours. Thankfully, this generator was going for $599.99 at Harbor Freight and they had a coupon for $539.99 which gave me room to also buy the wheel kit as this unit weighs well over 200 lbs and isn’t easy to move.

In the opening clip of this video I’m running the engine through the break-in process and in the remaining parts of the video I’m walking though the start-up process and checking the output voltages.

Thanks for watching.
