Not a brand name that I'm familiar with. $500 is very cheap for the reported generating capacity. The engine is a no name 18hp engine. Even a cheap 18hp engine typically goes for well over $500. IMO, this is one of those deals that is way too good to be true.

FYI, most of the cheaper generators are very loud and definitely draw attention. There is a way to mod generators using flex exhaust pipe and an automotive muffler to reduce the noise.

Do you have a shop and do welding?

Two of the three plugs are 3 phase AC.

For home back up generator I would look for something that did not require building a separate panel box to use.

Not 3-phase, 2 of the 3 outlets offer 240VAC output.

A good, reputable brand.

Good price for the ouput, duel-fuel, and included wheel kit.

Usually these run a little louder than your typical 'brand name' that you may have heard of, but not much more that is noticeable for many - talking about a single-digit levels.

I bought a DuroMax 5500 gas generator for a bit over $200 from Home Depot a few years ago. It's been used 3 times for extended power outages and has just run like a champ. It is a bit louder, as onthedownlow suggested, but I haven't had any problems with it. I empty the tank and run it dry each time I use it. I basically just run our freezer and 2 refrigerators with it although I plug in a couple of LED lights, as well.

I grabbed the 4650W version of this last summer for $255 (after an eBay coupon code). Put it to good use last Friday when we lost power for 8 hours. I put 6 circuits on it via a transfer switch, so we were covered for all the necessities and then some. The sales on these things pop up every few months so you might want to set up an alert on SD.
