abunda_amazon_reviews To be clear, I have not used the generator in an emergency yet - I have only tested it. I ran it for about 30 minutes while powering a small refrigerator and some other devices. Based on my experience, I am very pleased with it. The generator arrived in excellent shape - no issues from shipping. It was easy to assemble the wheel kit and add oil. I had it ready to go in about a half hour. You will want to have the wheel kit. Is is very easy to move and maneuver with the wheels, but heavy and awkward enough to be difficult without them. In an emergency, the last thing I want is to hurt my back getting the generator ready. I added some gas and followed the instructions to start it. To say that it is easy to start is an understatement. It started on the first pull, and I didn't even need to pull hard. It was amazing. The noise was about what I expected, maybe a little quieter than comparable generators I have used. It runs very smoothly. Everything worked great. The emissions control is amazing. I was surprised that I could never small any fumes as I approached it when it was running. All of the controls and outlets, as well as the oil plug and oil fill/dipstick are clearly labeled and easy to access. Note that while this is rated at 3600/4650 watts, you cannot accomplish that using only the two household outlets. Those share a 20 amp breaker. So using normal extension cords, whether one or two, the best you can do is 2400 watts (120V x 20 amps). Unless you plan to use something connected to the L5-30 or TT-30 connector, you will want to buy an L5-30P adapter in order to take advantage of the full capacity. Adding the 30 amp (up to 3600 watts) capacity of the L5-30 outlet to the 20 amps, you can reach the full capacity. I purchased this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071ZNBVZM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I will update this review after my first outage that requires extended use, but I have to say that I am so far very satisfied with my decision to purchase this unit.;;Reviewed in the United States on September 15, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Love it.

(Please do not take offense as I have been to many third world countries so I am speaking from experience). Living in Florida one needs to be prepared for outages due to hurricanes and such, but our power goes out whenever there is a thunderstorm. And to top it off, we seem to be on the end of the line when it comes to restoring power so we can go for 4 hours to a day if situations are bad. (not even talking about hurricanes where we can lose power for days/weeks). So I decided to get a generator that will power a fridge, tv (and peripherals such as roku, cable box, etc), lights and a fan to keep cool. This westinghouse 3600v should do the trick. The generator comes completely assembled and all that is needed is to add oil and gas, Fortunately, Westinghouse has added a quart of oil so I did not need to go out and purchase any...thanks Westinghouse! I added the oil, added a gallon of gas and turned the switch to "ON" and turned the gas to allow the gas to flow and pulled the engine cord and !!BAM!!, it started up on the first pull with barely any muscle. My grandmother could have started this generator because it requires hardly any muscle power to start it up. The generator seems well built, sounded good and starts on the first try. The only negative thing I have to say is that the generator does not come with a wheel kit which I think all portable generators should come with. A wheel kit can be purchased but I did not want to spend another $100 (after taxes), so I reckon I will do without.

The unit doesn't even come with a fuel filter, and adding one would void the warranty. So since it's not covered under warranty, I must take the carburetor off and clean the jets myself.

We have had difficulty starting it many times, with it not starting at all some times (which defeats the point of having a brand new generator). We've tried multiple different ways of starting it (electric push start, pull start, start on propane then switch over to gas, etc), and so far, can find no rhyme or reason to why it works sometimes and not others.
