I've had one of these for 3 years. Since my jobsites are out in the middle of no where, I use it daily in the winter for running battery chargers and block heaters on my equipment. The rest of the year I run saws, grinders, cordless tool chargers, etc. It spends 9 or 10 months a year bouncing around in the back of my truck. After 3 years if it doesn't start on the first pull, it certainly starts on the second. The main reason I bought is because it is light. I can't say enough good about it. Worth every penny I paid.
