Does not want to start
Purchased in September. Started when the weather was warm. Would not start in cold weather. Service tech said that unless gas is less than thirty days old, the unit will be difficult to start. I use this generator as a backup for my sump pump. It has to start if we lose electricity to run the pump. I have a number of gas engines to run other equipment and have never had this problem.(I always use non-oxengenated fuel.

Good unit & design
Purchased on sale at Cdn Tire for use on a boat to power fridge & microwave while at anchor. Easy to start & quiet running. Cuts in quickly when set to economic mode. Light weight to carry & store ashore when not in use. It had a little trouble powering a 1500W heater for an initial test which is why only a 4 star rating. This unit will be an advantage at the gun range for running a computer & charging electronic target systems during competitions.

Good when it's warm out, unreliable when cold
Highly disappointing. Worked great the fist couple of times I used it, although it burns more gas than I would like. Once the temperature dropped around zero C it was horrible to get going and now that it's below zero it will not start. 4th time I used it. Fortunately I bought it as a back up to my good generator, because I cannot rely on it to work when I need it.

In case of Emergencies
I bought this unit in case we have have any power outages. It always happens in the winter or early spring, when we need light and power to our sump pump that usually runs during the spring. Plus it was on sale.

As soon as I received my generator, I followed the instructions perfectly and it fired right up. Then, I took it camping. It started right up. I turned it off that night, and the next day it would not start at all. I took it in for repairs, and it fired up right when I got there. Took it camping again, fired right up. Turned it off that night, and it hasn't started since. I've never seen anything so temperamental. But, I guess it got over that because it just doesn't run anymore.

Started on first pull, ran for 5 hours and died.
Bought this for Florence, but didn't need it, so we never added fluids or powered it up. Our power went out for Michael and we followed the instruction manual and the generator started right up and ran our sump pump without issue...for 5 hours. Topped off fuel and oil. We never could get it restarted. Doesn't even turn over. Our basement is now flooded. Yeah, there is a warranty, but what about all the cost of the water in our basement.

After lots of research, let down
I bought this 2 days ago. I did the start up procedure and started it on 1st or 2nd pull. Worked great. Loaded it up in the truck ready to go camping. Now im camping with NO POWER. Went to start it and absolutely nothing. Cylinder is getting fuel but NO Spark from the plug. Could not be more disappointed in B&S. I thought this was supposed to be a good brand.
