Terrible experience with this product and company

The very first time I tried to use it, I had to have my small engine guy come out and repair it! It did provide 19 hours of service during that storm. The next storm that came up, it started instantly, so I was psyched. HOWEVER, it didn't produce any electricity! After endless time on hold with their customer support line, the woman told me that it was probably that the "charge head had...

Looking Forward To Starting this RIDGID RD8000 Generator

The RIDGID RD8000 Portable Generator is one that I've had my eye on since these debuted, and finally was able to buy one this past Saturday. After reading the manual and looking over videos on YouTube and elsewhere online, I did the preparation to get it started. Fresh gasoline and the included oil was put into this generator. Now there's a problem of the engine not starting/running on its own...

Strong power output, relatively easy to move around, LOUD!

Terrible product

Bought this generator in advance of Hurricane Sandy. Fired it up Monday night and it ran for a total of 21 hours and it stopped producing electricity. Called 800 number and was told to take it to repairman in Hightstown, NJ. Was diagnosed as needing a new altenator. Repairman ordered new altenator, but it is on backorder. It is now 17 days and still do not have our generator repaired.

Great value for the money

Did tons of research and besides going with a Honda or a Yamaha generator which are awesome but 2 to 3 times the price, this was best value for my money. This unit powered my 1/2 HP well pump, TV, oil burner, all my lights and microwave without any signs of overload. Love the Subaru made engine. Yes the unit has a chinese made generator head but from TTI who makes parts for many other units....
