I got the generator
as ordered. After taking it to the gas co to fill the tank I noticed one of the case bolts must have loosened in transit.....seems odd. I partially got it in butm I need more daylight to get it all the way
I added the oil and gas and tuged away over 10 times...no start. After realizing I was pulling the cord straigt up 90 degrees (follow me?) I instead knelt down and pulled it out parallel to the ground and it started right up
. It seems a bit louder than other models (Honda) I've heard but then again it was very quiet outside (as opposed to a WSU tailgating party) and I'm probably being hyper sensitive to it.
An interesting note is that there is a sticker right on the unit that says Kipor engines. I suspected it was a Kipor knockoff but didn't realize McCulloch simply rebadged it.
I'll post tomorrow when I actually plug something into it.
