I am looking to buy a generator. I like the Hondas but they are expensive. I was looking at Kipor KGE3500Ti for about 1200.00. Anyone have any experience with these...good or bad?? Thanks for your input.

CaptSteve , I thought about getting one instead of a Honda myself untill I heard there would be a shortage of parts. The man that I was going to by it from said the factory said if you have a problem with one "throw it in the trash and give the customer a new one. That tells me that there isn't too much reliablity and the units are extremly cheap. Since the wholesaler or factory rep. doesn't want the bad unit back. I believe they are made in China. Needless to say I own a Honda now

I have had one for about 2yrs. I have not had any problems with mine.

They are quite and good on gas. I run mine for my a/c on my travel trailer and use it when fishing.

The dealer from which i bought mine from told me if it ever breaks down bring it back and they would give me another one. Just as Cap-n-red stated.

Hope it helps, Al.

Got several Honda's, that we use on a comercial basis. They will start on the first pull no matter how long they sit, and will out run any other brand. If your going to spend the $$ to buy a generator get what you think will be the best cause when you need it, will it work?

I've heard nothing but good things about the Kipor gens, Ebay pretty much as the best prices on them the last time i looked. I really dont see any reason to spend more $$ on the Honda name when you can get the same performance and reliability out of a Kipor
