Honda EG4000

Model Reviewed: EG4000 Saturday, August 19, 2017
GARY R Powell
Huntsville, TX
Type of use:  Home Back Up, RV Power

I opened the box and expected a quart of oil to be enclosed for the 1st time startup. Apparently it was either omitted or is not supplied. It wasn't a huge deal.

I followed the owner's manual instructions for the start preparations, pulled one time and it kicked right off. I ran it for an hour with a 15000 watt RV/AC air conditioner for the load and it ran just fine. It ran a little louder than what I hoped for, but once inside the house you had to listen for it to hear it. Its early, but it looks like another quality Honda product.

Note: I should have ordered the wheel kit, I'll be taking of that immediately. This unit is 147 lbs and difficult to move around on a dolly.
