Default Predator 3500 Gas Gen

Anyone have one......good?, bad? All the reviews say it outperforms and is quieter than the Honda 3000 @ 1/3 the cost.

Thanks

I picked one up when they first came out in 2017. Other than a leaky carb which was an easy fix, it has performed well. I would buy another one.

I have really liked my Honda 3000 but the HF generator sounds like a good one.

I can`t speak for the 3500 model, but I bought a Predator 2000 from Harbor Freight 3 years ago, no issues with it at all. I can`t say it is as quiet as a Honda, but much quieter than my old Coleman 1850 generator.

Really appreciate your comments guys. Think I'll take a chance on one with probably an extended warranty just in-case.

I know this is a older thread but I have had one for 3 years and it has served me well. I run my Motorhome off it all the time at the races along with the trailer, battery charger etc. Will run the A/C in the motorhome and run all day on a tank of gas. A whole lot cheaper to run than my 7K Onan Diesel.

With 3 races in.....Generator has exceeded expectations. Asked all the time by adjoining racers, " is your generator running?"
