    Pros: None that I can think of.
    Cons: Cost me $$$ and time to repair the damage caused by this unit

    Pros: 5000W of power is enough to run most critical parts of your house.
    Cons: Air-cooled and high RPM engine design is very loud.

    Summary: In 2004 we had a really bad ice storm that knocked power out by the tens-of-thousands of homes in Wichita. We were without power for nearly 8 days and no where to go as all of the hotels quickly booked up. Luckily I had purchased a Coleman 5000W ... read more

    Pros: Good engine, long runtime, good capacity
    Cons: Poor regulation, noisy under load, can't run electronic devices

    Pros: Longer run time on a tank of gas than owners manual suggests
    Cons: Choke switch got unhooked somehow but can manually choke it and it starts right up.
