Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended, good power Bought one of these from my local Home Depot last year, and it's been pulling me through. I like the east of pull and how withstanding it is. Used it last year also with a big snow, and it went great. Lights stayed on and there wasn't much of a problem with the generator at all. I recommend this in times of need...this brand especially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emergency generator We purchased this generator because we were tired of suffering power outages due to storms/tornadoes. After being without power for several days my husband said no more and picked this up. It started on the first pull. And we like the fact that it has gauges indicating the wattage that is being used/hours. Used it to run several appliances and computers, we are very pleased with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great generator Very heavy duty frame with a dependable Yamaha motor. I actually used it today for a power outage. I'm very pleased and would buy another if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great investment at an affordable price. Started on the first pull and every first pull after that. Powered my home's basics for 4 days straight during a power outage caused by the recent ice storm in SC. It ran flawlessly. My family was even able to have a hot bath every day. It's a great investment that I believe will pay off for many years to come. The only thing I would improve is the Gensmart monitoring system which is a great feature, but it doesn't monitor the load on the 240/25 amp twist lock connection. That would definitely be a plus when it comes to safety and takes the guess work out of overloading the unit…. ….If I was to do all over again, and if available, I would upgrade to the 6800 model. Overall the 5700 is an excellent unit at a great price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OUT OF THE BOX RAN FOR 48 HOURS TOOK MY UNIT OUT OF THE BOX, ADDED OIL & GAS, AND IT STARTED FIRST PULL. TOOK GENERATOR TO MY SON'S HOUSE WHICH WAS OUT OF POWER FOR TWO DAYS (ICE STORM IN SC). GOT BASIC POWER BACK TO THE HOUSE SAVING ALOT OF THE KIDS EXPENSIVE SALT WATER FISH AND OF COURSE FOOD. WE RAN THE UNIT FOR 48 STRAIGHT HOURS WITHOUT ANY PROBLEMS! GREAT FEELING TO HAVE LIGHTS AND POWER BACK AND NOT HAVING TO BUY A CHEAP GENERATOR! GENERATORS SHOULD COME WITH THE 30 AMP EXTENSION CORD BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT EASILY AVAILABLE.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality built tool This may be premature since i have only run it a half hour but i was so pleased with the initial startup and testing i had to share. This tool has a very sturdy frame and a nice finish as well as good hardware. The wheels have bearings and positioned perfectly for good balance making moving it a breeze, but pulling it works much better than pushing through the grass. Lean it up using a funnel and the oil goes right in no prob. I put in one whole quart and when i set it back down it appeared to be completely full but none ran out. I called it good enough. It started on one easy pull, i flipped the choke off and it ran smooth and uninterupted for 35 minutes. The Watt meter is awsome and was a big reason for selecting this unit. The ability to monitor volts and cycles and draw by cycling through the readout is a BIG plus. The volts didnt drop below 121 at 3100 watts load and the cyles were at 61. They were at 125 and 62.5 at no load. Knowing the Yamaha name and the Ridgid name this tool should be around for a while.

Is there an electric start option I can add? At 66, I have some issues with it starting.
