      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.

      Product suits my needs

      By leolady

      from Blanca

      Comments about Generac iX Series 800 Watts Portable Generator:

      Bought this product as an alternative to electric. I am on the grid but my electric goes out from time to time and during the winter the electric runs everything in my pre-fab home. Bought this to run my pellet stove during the winter and a TV until my power came back on. It will suffice for what I need it for. My brother looked at it and said that it was nice and he primed it for me and we ran the generator for about 15 minutes. Won't really have an opportunity to check the performance until I lose power to my house from the grid. At that time I'll see how it performs. Thanks.

          Great generator with 2000 watt ability. I put it on a trolley for portability and it can move around my property no problem! Purchased for home projects where extension cords do not reach --- very pleased.

              this is the second one I got, the first one I returned because the starter jambed. I have about two hours on this one and it does what I need it for.

                  Used this generator for 13 days 24/ hours per day. It ran non stop and flawlessly during our outage as a result of Hurricane Sandy here at the Jersey shore. The best review ever is that I just purchesed a GP5500 model and installed a transfer switch so we have a little more reserve power when needed. Great product and very reliable.

                          So far so good. I have about twenty hours on mine. Handles all the load I through at it. Does not like to start when hot. I have to let it cool a bit before restart. Other than that its great.

                              This generator is good but has room for improvement. It provides solid portable power, however I found it difficult to determine the oil level because you can only visually check it. Also, it's noise level is louder and has a higher fuel burn rate than a competitor's product.
