I have about 20 hours on a new igen 4500 (5/2018).
It has plenty of power to run my new mach 15 from its 30amp plug (I used a 30-50amp adapter).
I did have some ďchatterĒ from my progressive -ems and wasnít able to run my second mach 15 simultaneously
- so I installed 2 micro airs on both of my mach 15ís and I not only donít get any ems chatter on startup I can actually run both mach 15ís simultaneously - they both draw about 24 amps together giving me about 6 extra amps for other items.
There is a common issue that the automatic choke can become disconnected from the control board - westinghouse provides a PDF walking you through manually setting the auto-choke (I currently have this issue - I pull the side panel and open the choke when it is warm) there is a permanent fix that I havenít been long term successful with yet, Iím going to try one more time and maybe cable tie the wiring harnesses, so I may need to take it in for service if I canít resolve it.
Having remote start/stop is great,along with - having wheels and telescoping handle,upto 21 hours runtime on 1 tank of 3.4 gallons, digital monitoring panel, 3 year warranty, fitting under my tanneu cover, only weighing about 98lbs for this capacity, 30amp rv plug with 4500 watt surge all of this for $950 is a great value.
