My local HF is out, but offers rain checks at this price if you bring this in before it expires end of today. About $300 less than any other similar sized generator and $50 off HF normal price (they never charge $699 for it even though the website says that is the normal price).
I have HB generator Chicago electric brand. It's an absolute junk. It is a hassle to start and I usually have no clue why. It burns oil so you have keep checking the oil levels. When it starts it does not always produce electricity so you end up the process called flashing which may or may not work. It's loud as hell. I tried to use mine for sandy and it failed miserably. I bought some other generator now. Spend a little more and buy something reliable.
Sorry to hear your issue berker. I also have a Chicago Electric (3050 watt version) and have used it a couple of times, never had an issue. As I stated, not a Honda (or even a Briggs and Staton), but for the occasional outage, I can't say anything negative with my experience.
I wouldn't mess with these off brand motor generators. Neighbor has one of these and it just kept stalling the whole time during the outage. I have a Husky Brand from HD with a Subaru engine and it has been flawless and will run till the gas runs out. Only 5kW but its more then enough for my needs during a power outage. It was $600 and due to its reliabity it is more then paid for itself.
