      I bought the iX2000 as soon as I heard hurricane Irene was going to hit. I ended up getting the last one, which was displayed and demo'd on the floor, as it was the last one left. The fuel inside it was brown and foul. The dealer drained it and poured fresh fuel in it and the generator started up on the third pull. It pulsated at first, but what do you expect with 2 year old fuel in it? The dealer I bought this from was very honest and knowledgable. I asked if these generac inverters has any problems, and he said yes. Common problems they see are carburetor issues, choke levers breaking off, oil sensors not working right, and something else which has to do with power surging but I can't remember the exact name of the part. He made sure everything worked right before I left out the door with it. And any problems I had to come right back to him with it. Great thing is, I haven't had any problems with this generator! When we lost power, it ran night and day for 6 straight days. I only shut it off for its first and second oil changes. This guy never quit on me once! In summary, this is an excellent inverter generator, however do not buy this online. Go to an authorized Generac dealer and buy it. Have them start it, check it, and make sure it's ok before going out the door.

      We were in the bad hurricane force winds of July 2012 storms; hit twice, without power for over eight days (and only a mere 1/2 block from the staging center for MonPower's power restoration). Luckily I had this as my only way to get any power. It was able to keep my refrigeration running and when the temperatures rose, would switch it back and forth to a small window AC in one room, plus ran my medium size flat screen and small computer to watch some movies (since cable, phone, Net EVERYTHING was out of service). It ran them well, however, it is very hard to restart after running out of gas. Even if you stop it manually to refill, it is hard to restart. It is BRAND NEW, NEW USED before this incident. I've wound up with an extremely sore hand and arm and a couple fingers that are red and raw from pulling the started cord up to 50 times to restart after a refill. On the PLUS side, I timed the running time with the "stopwatch" on my iPod and it ran 4:00:52 (4 hours 52 seconds) with the fridge, 2 fans, small computer and flat screen running off it... so I got longer run times than expected in specs on it. Only had ONE overload (no idea why) the entire week when the AC first engaged (it was a brand new AC I had yet to replace the one in my bedroom with.. so maybe because it was new...) but never did it again over span of 8 days. This may NOT be recommended by manufacturer, so take this advice at own risk: I noticed it seemed rather hot when temps were hitting 100degrees and I took off the side panel to check air filter (clean as brand new) then left off the panel allow more air flow. It was a little easier to start after doing this and seemed to run a bit cooler.

      Great value for price

      Comments about Generac iX Series 800 Watts Portable Generator:

      starts on 2nd or 3rd pull very quiet compared to a non inverter gen. 2000 watts is the same price as some other brands 1000/1500w gens. seems to be designed well and will work great for my application. I'm still breaking it in and testing my limits on my mobile food truck. very happy so far

      I used this generator at a family picnic and it operated flawlessly! I was able to power my boombox and also power an electric charcoal starter and charge a cell phone without any problems! I didn't have to refuel for 5 1/2 hrs..Now that's what I call a very good product.

      Extremely well made and easy to operate

      By Nerf

      from New Orleans

      Comments about Generac iX Series 800 Watts Portable Generator:

      I bought this unit to use during hurricane season. Our area has lost power many times over the years. The Generac iX2000 is perfect for my needs. I can run my refrigerator, freezer, fans and several lights with ease. I am comfortable using a computer or TV with it if needed. It is louder than I prefer, but considering con this with all its pros makes it a winner for me.

      Love this little thing. So easy to set up an maintain. Using it to power computers, printers, a fan, and several LED lights at our retail business when we lose power. So far, so good! Very quiet compared to traditional generators.

      Very Impressed so far

      By RC

      from Tallahassee

      Comments about Generac iX Series 800 Watts Portable Generator:

      After reading reviews of this product on other websites, I was on the fence about purchasing. Read many reviews about generator having starting issues. For the price I felt it was worth the risk with a lot of upside if things went smoothly. I found the manual very "to the point" and easy to follow, the tool kit and 12v connector was a nice surprise. Followed instructions for initial priming and startup and it fired up on sixth pull. Left choke at 1/2 for about 30 secs, cut it back off and the generator ran smooth. A bit noisy at full power but not too bad, quiets down a good bit once the "eco" setting is engaged. Put different loads on it up to 1500W (running) and had no problems at all, gen transitioned nicely. So far so good! Still in the break in period at about 2 hrs of run time. Will run it up to the recommended 5 hrs and change out oil. Will refill with synth 30, unless I hear of a reason not to. Overall at this point I'm very happy with it and would recommend this model to others. Hello hurricane season
