abunda_amazon_reviews Update May 2, 2020 The valve adjustment was easy if you have a inexpensive set of feeler gauges. I have roughly 220 hours in this generator. I still power my saws, drills, lights, battery chargers and more with this generator. It no longer starts with just one pull, often requiring four or more pulls, but it runs well nonetheless. I would definitely buy this genset again. Update December 17, 2019 Rainier's support responded within one day and has also opened a phone line. They updated the manual to include valve adjustment specifications. Does not appear to be difficult. Will check and adjust the valves. Expect to get full performance again from the generator for powering my saw and, possibly, my 80 amp arc welder. There are no other generators with the added power in this price range as far as I know. Glad I researched and chose Rainier. Going to buy another one. Update December 15, 2019 Glad to report that the generator powers 15 amp tools including saws. It will still not power my small stick welder probably because of rush current exceeding the rating. The low amperage stick welder needs a full 20 amp circuit and this generator is just shy of that amperage. The big challenge now is that Rainier recommends checking and adjusting valves after 100 hours but does not provide the specification for valve clearances. Still glad I chose this generator. It starts about as easily now as it did brand new. It is still super quiet and extremely fuel efficient. With less than 500 watt power draw, I can easily run 10-14 hours on the efficiency setting from one fill-up. Impressive. Update November 6, 2019 I have about 180 hours on this generator running everything from electric chain saws, shop lights, drills, smaller saws, finicky batter chargers, and fans. I am glad I bought it yet surprised and disappointed that it will stall when I attempt to run 120 VAC/15 amp mini welders, a smooth start saw from Evolution Rage, and other tools that are supposed to run on 120VAC/15 amp circuits but overwhelm this generator. When I first received it, the generator would power these devices but no longer. I use synthetic oil and replace it at around 50 hours. The manual states that I should check the valve clearances but does not provide the instructions to do so, other than taking it to a service station. Still a great generator that I would buy again and recommend. If I can solve this heavy load issue, it will be perfect. I own more than 10 generators because I live off-grid. My main generators are from Champion Generators with solid performance over the years combined with outstanding support. After researching for weeks to find a fuel efficient inverter generator that could support a 90 amp welder or several battery chargers that require clean power, LED lights, drills, saws, etc., I finally settled on Rainier Power Equipment's R2200i. Here are the reasons why I chose this inverter generator over the ones from Champion, Costco, Ai-Power, Wen, and many others: 1) 1800 running watts vs most competitors at 1600 watts. While the difference seems small, in practice 200 watts is enough to run my shop lights and 1800 watts is enough to run my 90 amp welder. 2) Fuel gauge. Several generators leave this nice feature out. I use the fuel gauge to assess how much time I have left in the tank. 3) Super quiet at 52 db. You will not believe how quiet this unit is! I often listen to podcasts while working and can hear them even near the generator. Other units are 58 db. 4. Larger tank and run time. 1 gal vs 1.3 gals makes for another 30% work time vs competitors. 5. Eco-mode and 13 hour run time. The eco-mode responds instantly to changing loads, dramatically reducing fuel consumption. Some competitors do not have this critical feature. 6. 120VAC 20 A outlets vs 120VAC 15A outlets. The 20A outlets are different and allow me to use high current power tools, compressors and welders. 7. Price! For the lowest price out of most of the competitors, I have the top performing generator. Thus far I am completely amazed by how quiet the generator is, how it runs a particularly finicky battery charger and the high quality construction. I plan to run this generator for at least a few hundred hours in the first month. I will post an update if anything goes wrong. Update June 5, 2019 I only have about 44 hours on the unit with one recommended oil change at 20 hours to full synthetic. The unit still starts on one to three pulls but no longer will it power my sliding miter saw nor my 120 VAC compressor. Suddenly the 2200 Watt claim, or even 1800 Watt claim is no longer valid. I have to use my Champion dual fuel generator rated at 3500+ running watts for either or both of these key tools. I am disappointed since this generator originally ran both the saw and the generator. I am going to check with the manufacturer to find out what could cause the issue. Update: At first there was no reply from support. A day later, I received a support response asking for nameplate information on the compressor and saw that the R2200i would not power. So the company still supports the generator but slowly. No phone number like Champion. If there is some setting that resolves this issue, then I will get no more than a 3 star rating because the generator has run flawlessly for the many hours I have used it, but has not provided the 2000 watts needed to start the saw and compressor as it specifies it can supply.;;Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2019;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Update 220 hours, valve adjustment, running well though more pulls to start;;ActionMan;;;Purchased my generator on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and arrived in on Saturday, I was really surprised at how fast it shipped despite the estimate that Amazon originally gave me and with the holidays. I’ve owned several generators in the past for work, so I have quite a bit of experience operating and maintaining them. After researching all of my options extensively, I decided to get this one. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my parents (we sometimes get power outages in the winter and it is always good to plan ahead!) INITIAL IMPRESSIONS: Pulled out the manual and warranty information with straightforward, very easy to follow instructions. The mini HOW-TO guide stickered on the front of the control panel may come in handy for my parents. My parents are older and I worry about them figuring out how to operate it so it’s nice to have a reminder on the front in case they need a bit of help. Oil funnel came with a neat extender to reach into the generator to fill up so there’s no struggle to reach into there. Got the tools and included oil. There’s a fuel gauge on top right next to the opening and a red ring inside that lets you know when the tank is full (nice touch!). TESTING IT OUT: After adding oil and gas, it started right up on the FIRST TRY. First thing I noticed was that this generator is incredibly quiet. Naturally, there is still some noise but I was very impressed! I let it run for a few hours to see what it could all handle and to break it in too. I didn’t fill the gas tank, but still used it pretty much all day testing out different items like the fridge, lights, microwave, laptop, hand saw (to name a few) to ensure it could power everything up if the time came. VERY fuel efficient to say the least. BOTTOM LINE: Honestly can’t find anything wrong with this generator. Very quiet. Very fuel efficient, will easily run a refrigerator overnight and your lights, fans, etc. on less than a gallon. Could not resist at this price point, who says you need to spend a thousand bucks!

It runs a 1600 watt microwave without a hiccup, while also running the fridge, even from eco-mode. It ran that 2 1/2 hours on only a quart of gasoline, and that is fantastic. I notice two issues with it; the fuel gauge sight window was scuffed and made it a little blurry to read accurately. It’s a simple 2” diameter piece of plastic in a rubber grommet, which I removed and cleaned, but the imperfections were permanent and did not improve.

While the difference seems small, in practice 200 watts is enough to run my shop lights and 1800 watts is enough to run my 90 amp welder. 2) Fuel gauge. Several generators leave this nice feature out. I use the fuel gauge to assess how much time I have left in the tank. 3) Super quiet at 52 db. You will not believe how quiet this unit is! I often listen to podcasts while working and can hear them even near the generator. Other units are 58 db. 4. Larger tank and run time. 1 gal vs 1.3 gals makes for another 30% work time vs competitors. 5. Eco-mode and 13 hour run time. The eco-mode responds instantly to changing loads, dramatically reducing fuel consumption. Some competitors do not have this critical feature. 6. 120VAC 20 A outlets vs 120VAC 15A outlets. The 20A outlets are different and allow me to use high current power tools, compressors and welders. 7. Price! For the lowest price out of most of the competitors, I have the top performing generator. Thus far I am completely amazed by how quiet the generator is, how it runs a particularly finicky battery charger and the high quality construction. I plan to run this generator for at least a few hundred hours in the first month. I will post an update if anything goes wrong. Update June 5, 2019 I only have about 44 hours on the unit with one recommended oil change at 20 hours to full synthetic. The unit still starts on one to three pulls but no longer will it power my sliding miter saw nor my 120 VAC compressor. Suddenly the 2200 Watt claim, or even 1800 Watt claim is no longer valid. I have to use my Champion dual fuel generator rated at 3500+ running watts for either or both of these key tools. I am disappointed since this generator originally ran both the saw and the generator. I am going to check with the manufacturer to find out what could cause the issue. Update: At first there was no reply from support. A day later, I received a support response asking for nameplate information on the compressor and saw that the R2200i would not power. So the company still supports the generator but slowly. No phone number like Champion. If there is some setting that resolves this issue, then I will get no more than a 3 star rating because the generator has run flawlessly for the many hours I have used it, but has not provided the 2000 watts needed to start the saw and compressor as it specifies it can supply.

Great quality generator, totally impressed!
Purchased my generator on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and arrived in on Saturday, I was really surprised at how fast it shipped despite the estimate that Amazon originally gave me and with the holidays. I’ve owned several generators in the past for work, so I have quite a bit of experience operating and maintaining them. After researching all of my options extensively, I decided to get this one. I bought it as a Christmas gift for my parents (we sometimes get power outages in the winter and it is always good to plan ahead!) INITIAL IMPRESSIONS: Pulled out the manual and warranty information with straightforward, very easy to follow instructions. The mini HOW-TO guide stickered on the front of the control panel may come in handy for my parents. My parents are older and I worry about them figuring out how to operate it so it’s nice to have a reminder on the front in case they need a bit of help. Oil funnel came with a neat extender to reach into the generator to fill up so there’s no struggle to reach into there. Got the tools and included oil. There’s a fuel gauge on top right next to the opening and a red ring inside that lets you know when the tank is full (nice touch!). TESTING IT OUT: After adding oil and gas, it started right up on the FIRST TRY. First thing I noticed was that this generator is incredibly quiet. Naturally, there is still some noise but I was very impressed! I let it run for a few hours to see what it could all handle and to break it in too. I didn’t fill the gas tank, but still used it pretty much all day testing out different items like the fridge, lights, microwave, laptop, hand saw (to name a few) to ensure it could power everything up if the time came. VERY fuel efficient to say the least. BOTTOM LINE: Honestly can’t find anything wrong with this generator. Very quiet. Very fuel efficient, will easily run a refrigerator overnight and your lights, fans, etc. on less than a gallon. Could not resist at this price point, who says you need to spend a thousand bucks! Highly recommended for anyone!

So far so good
Wanted small generator to run a refrigerator and TV/cable box in case of outage and first test seems to be the fit I was hoping for. Easy set up and started on 2nd pull, tested on numerous power tools before trying what was intended for. Ran for short time but worked well without major ramp up on the generator. Only fault I see is no dipstick for the oil and not sure how can check the oil level other than add or wait until oil light comes on.

Specs are accurate. Great value for a Poor Man’s Honda.
Great value for a generator! It came with oil, a premeasured oil filling bottle, a spark plug wrench and screw driver (to access the oil compartment.). Easy to carry with one hand. I did a 2 1/2 break in powering a fridge, microwave, 2 fans and various small appliances. Economy mode works great! It runs a 1600 watt microwave without a hiccup, while also running the fridge, even from eco-mode. It ran that 2 1/2 hours on only a quart of gasoline, and that is fantastic. I notice two issues with it; the fuel gauge sight window was scuffed and made it a little blurry to read accurately. It’s a simple 2” diameter piece of plastic in a rubber grommet, which I removed and cleaned, but the imperfections were permanent and did not improve. Secondly, there is a small spark plug access panel on the top that simply slides and locks in place, similar to the battery door on a tv remote. This panel does not lock in place. It nearly pops off just by looking at it, and certainly comes loose just from the normal running vibrations. It now sports a piece of electrical tape holding it on. Neither issue affects operation, and I still consider it a great value
