[...] Very well made , and seems solid. Filled the oil and gas , pumped the gas lid and choked it, after 4 pulls it fired right up and took off.It vibrates some but, not badly , not as quiet as a honda but for the HUGE price difference i am more than satisfied. With oil and gas full,it weighs about 55 lbs. very portable with the built in handle on top.The oil lid is a little difficult to get, but do-able , just have to be pretty careful not to drop it . All and all i am delighted with my purchase and look forward to many years of service , and you get a 2 yr warranty from and AMERICAN MADE company ! Thanks alot ABT.com

I had not ran a full tank of fuel through my Generac ix 1600 before i experienced problems. While on a job site where provailing wadge was $34.00 an hour, time is money,and the failiure of this product cost. This machine failed to run so I called Generac and they refered me to a local service rep. who himself was unqualified to diagnose the problem. My generator was in his shop for two months while they tried to find the problem. They found fuel in the oil do to a malfunction. I am unaware if this is isolated to my machine, or if this is a problem with the product line. After getting my generator back it ran rough, but it ran. I was able to use it for two more hours before it quit again. I contacted Generac again. They told me I had never registered my product, and the service rep never registered a problem, so this left me stuck again. As a bussiness owner and manager of reasources it is important to have integrity in what you do, and look out for those who depend on your knowledge and experiance to provide the best quality and performance possible.Generac would be best served in takeing the anititive to enforce their loyalty to the costumer. My recommendation to Generac, spend more time and reasources on meeting the needs of the consumer and less time deflecting legitimate claims. On a different note, the claim rep.s are very professional and curtious. Please don't get the wrong impression, this is not an attempt to smear Generac, I believe in them as a company and their willingness to display the integrity I know they posses. However, I have a machine in my garage that has hardly been used and is still of no service to me. The second part of this post is dependant on Generac. They have a wide line of solid products, Im just not sold on the ix 1600 inverter Generator. Please, make a believer out of me.

Worked well

By 

from SOUTHINGTON

Comments about Generac iX Series 1600 Watts Portable Generator:

I bought this for my boat to keep the batteries charged. They unit worked well, but was a little louder than I expected. The only thing I didn't like was if it wnet into an overload condition, there is no way to reset it other than turning it off and restarting. A breaker would be nice.

Great unit for bush camping!

By 

from Calgary

Comments about Generac iX Series 1600 Watts Portable Generator:

Bought this unit for camping away from power and people. Supplies my trailer with power for the fridge, furnace, stereo, TV and charges my units battery if I need it to. Don't know how I got along without one for so long.Light and easy to move, start and hook up. I highly recomend this unit for and hardcore campers, very satisfied customer.

      Used my generator only a few times the overload light came on and would not go out. Sounds like I'm not the only one having these issues.

                  With less than one tank of gas the generator overload light came on with nothing plugged in. Still under warranty retruned to authorized repair shop. The shop had 3 other iX models in for repair. After 6 months in the shop Generac finally replaced the unit. This repair shop will no longer sell Generac products or repair them.

                  I have almost 5 hours on it so far, started well. It ran a little rough at first but with a good load and after an hour or so it has smoothed out.

                      No other generators available found this one at an ace hardware it ran the fridge, dog fence, light, fans and tv during the recent power outage in West Virginia. Yes it's small but it did the job. It ran for 6 hours at a time with out difficulty. Quality product!

                          I am posting again as I posted before "Not recommending this product" Thjis is an update: I took my generator to Generac in North Bend, Wa. They stated a bad circuit boad and needed replaced after 25 hours and 14 months. They stated a 1 hour labor rate of 85.00 and 10-14 days. I picked it up yesterday and they charged me nothing in labor, even though was past 12 months. Not sure if shop or Generac themselves, but I am assuming an isolated case and will now update to recommend. Thank You generac, you did the right thing. It makes a BIG difference and again I will suggest your product.
