I had a 1000 w Chicago generator from HF a few years back and just couldn't keep it running. I have since purchased a Honda 2000 w and been extremely pleased with it. Big price difference.
Most everything else I have purchased at HB has been outstanding. I could easily bought a lemon and I no longer see that particular model listed on their site.
