    Hurricane Irma in Naples, Florida. This was the only generator available before the hurricane hit. This was a life saver for our family. Zero issues. It ran perfect for 22 hours straight on one tank of gas. We ran a side by side refrigerator. Two fans, assorted cell phones and iPads. We unplugged a fan and ran the microwave. Unplugged the microwave and plugged in large electric frying pan. The second day our neighbor came over and plugged in his side by side refrigerator and a fan. Zero issues. A second tank of gas and an oil change and we're good to go again. The third day our house power came back on. If you want to live after a hurricane, get this generator. It'll make your families life bearable after the power goes out.
