Just bought what I think is the same unit at Sears (2/1/02) It is a 4200 watt unit, has a wheel kit with fold down handle, a neat gas guage on top of the fuel tank. I also believe it has a Honda motor. Everything says either Sears or Generac on it. Super quiet. Tested power output with volt meter and read between 120.4-120.7 volts. Excellent oil filter/pressurized oil lub system. Get the twist lock 30 amp plug/cord and use that to get the most power out of the unit. Have an old Generac unit with Briggs/Stratton motor on it--used it for 10+ years.. Generac builds a great generator!!!

I purchased the same generator 8/93 just in time for the 1994 Northridge Earthquake. I ran the generator 8 hours a day for a week to operate my office without a single problem. Since then I use it when I go camping each month. This gererator performed way beyond my expectation.

Starts first pull every time. We bought this Generator to power a Trailer (& house during rotating blackouts). Since the 5th Wheel only requires 30 Amp service, this Generac powers everything at once: A/C, Water Heater, Refrigerator . . .
Although it is quieter than our lawn mower, it's still a bit noisy when run all night. We also looked at Honda Generators. In general, they were quieter, but MUCH more expensive. (Would have been 5 stars if it were as quiet as a $1600 Generator).
A short correction to the editorial reveiw, January 31, 2001
Reviewer: A home improvement enthusiast from San Diego, CA USA
I recently purchased the 4000XL to power my home shop and have been very pleased with its power, size and performance. I noticed that in the editorial/manufacturer review it stated that the unit comes with two 20Amp 120VAC outlets. The 4000XL (model 9777) unit I have has two 15Amp 120VAC outlets as is stated in their on-line owners manual. My compliments to their service center. The unit I bought was a floor model and was missing a few of the standard accessories. I called the 800 number and got through to a real person in about two minutes. The lady I spoke with was knowledgeable about the product and five days later,I received the missing parts.

This is an excellent product that proved and paid for itself several times over during our June, 2000, flood, but you must count on being physically healthy to start it, especially during cold weather. We're saving our pennies to buy an electric start model and are hoping Generac will develop a remote starting option so we can get at the generator through our electric garage door when the power is out.

this is a very nice and powerful generator. ive had at least six saws running on it at one time and it always carries the load. other guys i work with like honda but they dont have the power that this one has. there is one reason i wont give this 5 stars and that is there is one more of these on my jobsite and we both have problems with oil leaking. it is a small leak barely noticeable but it is still a very annoying problem. other than that i would tell everyone to buy one.
One of the best portable generators I have ever used., September 3, 2000

This little 4000 watt may be small in size, but it certainly packs a lot of power. It is not only light weight, but quite and very durable in any situation. I have used it on work sights, for camping, and on my boat. I was really inpressed with the Generac brand engine and plan on buying one for my father this Christmas. I highly recommend it to anyone in the market for some back up power.
