I like everything about this generator. It is quiet and seems to be very well built. The manual is excellent and the assembly was easy. I like the auto-throttle function which saves a significant amount of gas. The only thing I would have liked would be an ampere meter showing the load. My 30-year old EM2200 is still in excellent shape but it could not run the microwave (15 amps) or the garage door opener. The EB4000 runs everything with ease. The folding handles makes it easy to move around and the generator takes very little storage room.
