Using during Harvey.  A hurricane, tropical storm, and flood all in one week.  This generator is quality.  No regrets, would buy exactly the same thing again.starts first pull.  Used for HAM radio emergency station, home, and ranch construction wooek.  Install a manual transfer switch at your home service entrance.  Powers many home devices, including my water well septic, refrigerator, lights, Microwave, and small windowAC unit.  For me, this one equipment is the difference between comfort and misery.  My generator is actually the prior model, EB5000, and is 21 years old.

 Bought this in 1996 after hurricane Fran. Converted to Trifuel in 2005 and the Honda Generator just keeps working. Great generator  and have used it thru ice storms and numerous power outages. Just change the oil and the plug. The best investment as a home owner I have made
