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 product, delivers at a great price
Comments about Generac iX Series 800 Watts Portable Generator:
This is a small, powerful generator. Powered my needs during a multi day power outage. Compare at twice the price of competition. Really clean power for electronics. Great piece of mind when you need it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Powerful for its size
Great product, good power for its small size a little loud at times other then that over all happy with it.
Even with this product being a bit bulky its quiet and run beautifully
I already own a Generac power washer and I am very pleased with it. When it came time to get a generator I read the reviews and was convinced the I2000 was going to be my next purchase. Its quiet, has all the info for time remaining, gas gauge and more. I could not be more satisfied.
Great for portable sound!
We use this unit for our high school marching band shows. It powers all our sound equipment and lights. The kids love it because it is lightweight and easy to carry out to their practice fields!
This product performed well.
The power was out and we needed a generator to keep a few things going in the house. The generator did an excellent job keeping the freezer, frig and heaters going. It was quiet and easily started.
from Shelby twp
Started tailgating every weekend this year for our college team. We needed a compact and lightweight generator. We spotted the ix2000 at a game and just loved it. Quite, lightweight and powerful. Best Buy for that wattage and very fuel efficient when running in low mode. We have recommended it to any one who inquires about it.
It keeps my fridge and freezer cold and doesn't bug my neighbors. Solid product for the price
This generator was spot on!!!
I couldn't be any more pleased with this generators ability to: one be portable,and two to be functional with multi function/tasks. It preformed better than expected.
Great product Great value
Bought this for my trailer for when I go camping. Works great, Light weight, powerful & quite. I can't believe how long it runs on a tank of gas.
