Thanks folks, I understand Quality! Sometimes you just got to be practical! If I was using this Gen every day I would probably go Honda, or Yamaha, but I'm not soooo what else would work, I think you gave me the answers Thanks

Where do you see any evidence of complaining? I rarely buy anything but the best or better product, but in this case the price difference is SO great and the product reviews so good it was worth taking a chance. It has worked out very well so far. I'm no longer a Honda fan.

Yeah, you pay about 900 dollars more for that extra Honda Warranty. I took my chances with my Boliy and Champion generators and am very happy.

I am impressed with Westinghouse products. Not related to gen's but I bought a Westy pressure washer and it has performed flawlessly.

Most of these China made generators are made by some very large companies that make everything from motorcycles to you name it. Chinese products have gotten better over the years because of oversight and demand from American companies putting their name on it.

The difference in price makes them very attractive for the casual user. But if Trump becomes president, the prices are going up. ha.
