Customer Reviews and Scores
The PowerPro 56101 enjoys a whooping feedback score of 4.4 out of 5 at the Amazon online store. This feedback value is the result of use and trial of as many as 9 Amazon verified customers based on their experience with the same.
While going through customer reviews and feedback, we have come across a few negative aspects about the product. The pull start hub mechanism is made of plastic as all cheapies are these days to include the plastic pull handle which is made of thin plastic to which both can break easily. However the cheap cord and handle can be replaced with a quality one for under $5. Also, the generator is quite loud, measuring at around 85dB standing about 10 feet away. It is an acceptable machine for a jobsite or emergency.
Whatsoever, at a price range of 135 dollars, the machine provides all that it is designed for. The few flaws it has can be corrected at the minimum possible expanse and effort. For a portable geneator, the PowerPro 56101 outshines others of its kind will the plethora of features it has to offer. Our personal feedback score about this machine would be 4+.
