Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, my first generator. I just purchased this generator before a storm. It was perfect right out of the box except one minor problem. The engine oil comes prefilled in the engine and it must have leaked some; I had to add a fair amount of oil to it before I could run it. Other than the minor oil issue, it fired right up first try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fills the bill I bought this unit @ Lowes 9 years ago. I never ran this unit for more than an 2 hours...until march 2018, when eastern mass got smacked. It worked like a champ for many days.i would run this unit for 2 hours each month prior to the 2018 storm just to "shake it down " I did replace the battery in the fall of 2017. You don't have to remove the fuel tank to access the battery. It's not hard

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless for over seven years so far The engine is approximately 14 horsepower. It is perfect for occasional use during a power failure. I power my whole house with it, furnace, well pump, I even ran the clothes drier with it. We purchased it in 2010 and have used it during numerous power failures. The only thing I've had to replace thus far is the battery. It always starts quickly and easily. It is probably the best name brand unit in its price range. The engine does not have pressurized lubrication or an oil filter so it's not built for commercial use or frequent and demanding use by contractors. It's not too big and it's not too small. I love this unit and would highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Windstorm nor Earthquake stops this Generator Ok, I love the generator, but first a gripe: I had to register on this site in order to leave a review, but, it looks like Troy-bilt doesn't know that Alaska is part of the United States. When it asks for a state in the registration process, there is no Alaska on the menu, and you can't type it in--so I picked Alabama so I could register, but, hey, we've been a state for nearly 70 years! Jeesh! Anyway, I own two of these generators and have them at two assisted homes that I own. We lost power at one of them due to the recent big earthquake, and we lost power during a ferocious windstorm last spring. The generators start with a push of a button, run steadily (and loudly!) for hours on a single tank of gas. Both times, the generator would run all night on one tank of gas. This generator has a digital readout that shows the percentage of electrical use that the generator is capable of producing (I have found no other portable generator that has this feature). I found this incredibly useful--you can see at a glance how much power you are using. Each generator fully powered a 1900 square foot home-with all systems running (especially the heat), I never used more than 50% of the generator's power capacity! So this generator has seen us through a windstorm and earthquake--an indispensable piece of equipment for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable Before Harvey hit us, I had bought two of these generators. I love them, plenty of power and some left over. Easy maintaiance, and always ready to go at the push of a button. Very well built. For me,I would not buy anything else but a Troy Built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent generator until Battery Dies I thought this generator was well designed and great until the battery died. Removing the old battery and then replacing it with a new one is no easy feat. You need to empty and remove the gas tank. Then remove two metal plates containing numerous screws which are highly torqued and have small heads to strip. After this, you can finally get to the 4 small screws that hold the battery tray (one piece) to one of the metal plates. THE BATTERY DOES NOT JUST SLIDE OUT LIKE ON OTHER GENERATORS! You need to remove all of this hardware and then replace it later. I'm a mechanical engineer and I've never seen such a poorly designed battery compartment/ service area. I'd like to think that just maybe this was done due to vibration but it seems like it was done to save money in the cost of development of the generator. Here is a thought, why didn't the engineer who designed this make the battery tray into two pieces instead of one? A front piece that can be removed to slide the battery out without going through all of this effort would have been a much better choice for the consumer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from battery system needs improvement Everything about this generator is better than any other generator I have used, except the battery system. I live off grid and turn off all systems at night. This is the only electric start generator that I have owned (more than 10 since moving off grid) that does not charge itself. This is a real inconvenience and now the battery is dead and trying to get the battery out to replace it is cumbersome since there is no detail on the removal that I have found at any of the troy-built sites. I have learned from this and will figure out what I need. Troy built should follow the other generator manufacturers and have a self charging battery system for ease of operation.
