    not seen one of these but from the number I would suggest it could be a rebadged Kipor, (made in China) love them or hate them,:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    I have had one for a year now. Still going strong. I use it to charge up my batteries when the hot thing in the sky isn't working. It's been reliable so far.

    hi i have one, bought from machine mart last year. it was approx a 3rd the price of a honda generator. if your running very small items you can put it on eco mode [basically tickover speed ! ] on normal running i have powered a angle grinder and a hammer drill no problems . it was bought as a emergency back up item and not something i would be using every day, or more importantly having to listen to every day !! if either of these situations apply to you then my advice would be to bite the bullet and buy a honda !!! regards garry
