      • I did extensive research on line before deciding to by the 8000. The selling points were a real voltage regulator, adequate power, and electric start. The Subaru engine helped too.This web site and the Ridgid web site don't have quite enough info so I called Ridgid for more. Among other things they told me that the generator has a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of 5%. THD is a measure of the "quality" of the power put out. Many/most generators won't mention their THD. I've called some, and even their tech support doesn't have this information. However, take it from me that 5% is very, very good for a portable generator. Some generators brands that pride themselves on good quality power have a THD of 7%.I'm making a big deal about this because it is important to have good quality power for electronics. Bad power quality can fry electronics or shorten their life span significantly.The web sites also don't mention the sound level put out by the generator. Again, by calling them I found out that the level is 76 (?) db at 70 feet. This is a little high. Some of the higher priced ($2500+) generators of this wattage measure that at about 21 feet. This is noticeable. The generator is a little noisy. Hondas for instance are noticeably quieter. However, if you want something quieter with good quality power be prepared to spend the 2 or 3K.The electric start works very, very well. I started the generator several times, in weather that was 11 to 18 degrees. It started every time in less than 2 seconds.The generator appears solid and well though out. The gas fill is near the edge of the top. This makes filling it much easier. The gas take holds 8 gallons. This should be enough to last 10+ hours at a reasonable load.I have a whole house transfer switch on my house. The generator basically supplies every circuit in the entire house (BTW, don't buy a 6 or 8 circuit transfer switch).With typical electrical load I got 118 volts throughout the house. With every light in the house it stayed there. With the 220 dryer on high I got about 116. The only time the generator sounded like it was working hard was when I turned the oven on. Even then the voltage stayed just fine (slightly over what the utility power gives me).BTW, the generator comes with a 20 amp cord. However, don't be fooled. This is NOT a cord for connecting to a transfer switch. You need a 30 amp cord for that. This generator has (to me) a useless feature that allows you to detach the control panel and put it in a remote location using the supplied cord. This might be useful on a construction job site, but ...
