For being and LP&Gas model, this seems like a great deal. The Clean Sine Wave output, seems like a great feature that you usually don't find unless you are looking at inverter generators.

It just listed as a Sale Item in the coupon book. I was warned from my local warehouse, that they are in limited supplies, i.e. my location in South Florida is only receiving 12.

I had initially purchased the older model on Sunday in the warehouse not realizing it wasn't the dual fuel version. The older model, did have the remote start, which this one doesn't have.

I am very interested in this one because of the LP option, considering LP is allot safer to store than gasoline (with regular inspected and maintained cylinders).

I really have nothing to compare it to and that said,

This was louder than I expected at first.
It worked like a champ when I ran it for like five days giving it like 8 hours to rest between the five days.

IMHO, the most important is to make sure the 7000w and 9000w exceeds what you need. Too little and it's a waste of your money.

Very nice price on this for the features. Was looking for a Honda powered unit but all the features this has (wheel kit, battery included, dual fuel, electric start) make it a possible choice. It is probably cheaper to run on LPG but you lose some power output.
