    Has anyone else used this or know of any issues? I plan to backfeed the house panel via the 220 output for limited use during power outages and on site work. Has good reviews overall, but hoping somebody else has this.

    Where is it made? I don't know that model specifically but know that during our recent extended power outage retailers saw many defective Chinese-built generators returned.

    Got a link? Briggs made some crap a long time ago but I am no longer afraid of using their stuff.

    No Idle Control on that one, that's something I really like for on-site work or for just running the fridge/freezer overnight. Saves a bunch of fuel.
