Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start I bought this back in Nov 2022 as an emergency backup. So far it has worked when we needed it to. It is super easy to start up in 1-3 pulls. It is a bit louder than i expected but then again it is an open frame generator. If you intend this for an RV I recommend getting an adapter to go from a twist lock to whatever power input your RV uses. Yes I have used this to power my class C RV, no issues whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this generator We live in a 5th wheel and our RV park is subject to quite a few power outages throughout the year. This wonderful unit allows us to power the entire camper without worry. It is easy to use and very portable to bring it out of the shed and setup for use. We love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfactory on all tests! Got this generator in anticipation of a coming storm, and sure enough we lost power. I was able to run my furnace, fridge, sump pump, gas stove, and some work lights to weather the storm. It did the job !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAJOR UPGRADE I am extremely satisfied with this product, the price was good, I put it together in a flash, started right up - I know we are ready if we lose power - I especially love the fact that I can wheel this generator around especially at my age. Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic power and ease of setup. I purchased the Ryovi 6500 watt generator today to prepare for what forecasters are calling a once in a generation storm. The packaging, ease of setup and start up were nothing short of fantastically easy. Thank you Ryobi for another great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Coming apart at the seams I admit this generator ran great early on but now screws are coming out and things are rattling apart. It would be great if they would use locktite on these screws. Two crucial ones have fallen out and are nowhere to be seen. Finding replacement parts is proving to be difficult as well.
