This is a great generator. Starts quickly every time and runs quieter than other 5-6 KW units. I loaded it up using house load and a clip-on ammeter and it carried over 5 KW with no trouble for several hours. Propane is a great fuel for a home portable generator. Easy to handle, clean, and safer than gasoline. During Ike I could not get gasoline because of the power outages, but exchange propane tanks were available everywhere. I am using a 3-way change over valve so I can switch from one tank to the next under full load. It works great.
I was concerned about service until I saw the exact same generator at Sears and Sams Club web sites. I am sure I can get parts, and that is the important thing. Also Jiangsu Jiangdong is a very large and well established small engine manufacturer that sells the same generator in the US under the names Gentron and JD Tek and probably others.
