    I purchased this item after a recent power outage to replace a smaller unit.It was so easy to set up just follow the instructions.Ran the unit for about five hours hooked up to a 10 circuit transfer switch. It ran the furnace,lights,central air,every thing in the house without a hiccup. It's quiet, my sno-blower is louder. I'm well pleased with this unit.

    Comments about Briggs & Stratton® 7000 Watt Electric Start Generator (030470):

    I'm always looking for "Made in USA" products with good value. The only thing that would make this item better is for it to have steel wheels and rubber tires. Also a waterproof protective fitted cover would really be nice.

      Comments about Briggs & Stratton® 7000 Watt Electric Start Generator (030470):

      I'm very pleased with the product [...]I had a pull start generator of lesser watts and at my age (63)I wanted a electric start generator. Pulling is too hard on my back. [...] This item is very heavy so you need two people to lift it from the truck. [...]The instruction were very clear and it didn't take long at all. I added the oil that came with it after putting on the wheels, put some gas in the tank and took it outside. It started on first turn of the key. It come with a trickle charger for the battery to keep it ready to go.We had a recent power outage and I wish I had this generator at that time!

      Comments about Briggs & Stratton® 7000 Watt Electric Start Generator (030470):

      I just purchased the Briggs and Stratton 7000 watt generator (30470) so this review is specifically about getting the generator home and setting up the generator for initial operation. Will provide another review on operation once I have had more experience actually using the generator. The purchase, pick-up, and setup went extremely well.I ordered the generator on-line through the Ace Hardware web site with no problems and had it delivered to my local Ace Hardware store which is the only option [...] Picked up the generator at Ace and they loaded it into the back of my pickup truck with a fork lift. The dimenstions of the box are 35"L x 23"W x 27"W which should help you in determing whether it will fit in your vehicle. The box weighs about 200 lbs so will need to plan on how you will get it out of your vehicle once you get it home (if you pick it up). In my case, my neighbor and I were able to move it from the back gate of my Ram 1500 to the ground with no problem (both in our mid 50s). Upon opening the box, a Quick Start guide was right on top and provided clear and concise instructions on how to set up the generator for use. The generator purchase includes the battery, wheels (both extra on many generators), a battery trickle charger, and two quarts of 10W30 oil. The only assembly is putting on the wheels and a support leg which went on with no difficulty. You'll need metric sockets or wrenches to do the work (8mm, 10mm, 13mm, 16mm). Opening the box and putting on the wheels and support leg was completed within 30 minutes. Once assembled, was able to move the generator around with ease. It has a swing up and locking handle for this purpose and I had no problem moving and positioning the generator where I needed it. With respect to storing your generator, the final assembled dimensions, including the wheels and with handle stored, are 29"L x 30"W x 29"H. The instructions recommended that the battery trickle charger be plugged in all the time so you will want to consider proximity to an electrical outlet (or extension cord). The battery cannot be over-charged with the trickle charger.The generator comes with the two quarts of Briggs and Stratton 10W30 oil which is a good basic oil for most locations. The better option is to use Briggs and Stratton 5W30 synthetic oil (or other comparable synthetic brands).[...]Lastly, if you will be using the generator infrequently as I am (emergency power), then the instructions recommend using a fuel additive to keep the fuel fresh. I picked up the Briggs and Stratton Fresh Start fuel stablizer while at the dealer. My purchase, pickup, and initial setup could not have gone smoother. Will post another review on starting the engine, operation, etc. once I have gone through the process a few times. Ace was great to deal with. Would definitely recommend this route if you are looking to buy.
