After ordering it only took 5 business days to arrive and I’m in rural Tassie so I was pleased to see it so quick!
After assembling and adding oil I had trouble starting it, I then worked out that the choke is backwards or the signage is anyway.
So far she’s done 20 hours run time, running both mig and arc welders without fail so I’m happy with it, however there is a slight oil leak that I need to look into.
Manual doesn’t give enough info, not even a recommendation for oil type.
No grounding cable.
The fuel gauge stopped working after the first fuel up, it’s a pointless feature anyway.
It should come with outdoor power sockets for safer usage in wet conditions.
It’s easy to manoeuvre around a workshop or driveway but due to the weight of it I think it would be better if it had a set of tubed tires for easier manoeuvring on rough terrain or simply loading on and off of trailers.

The product is compatible with Honda GX parts and runs smoothly and easy to start and manoeuvre. Haven't actually used it much yet. The only problems are the instruction manual is hard to read and understand.

Anyone thinking of buying this generator, don't hesitate. So easy to set up and start even I can do it. With shipping to WA we could not have bought anything here at this price to accomodate what we need.
We live on a rural property and are completely off grid solar. Due to several overcast days we were at shutdown on our system this morning which normally is an issue, however, after plugging in to the generator we have been able to run the whole house (washing and all) and fill the batteries (still banket cloud today) without it batting an eyelid.
Thanks BBT for an awesome machine and great customer service.

Generator arrived minus a battery but BBT soon had one in the mail for me....connected it up, oil in engine and 20lts ULP later, it started first go and powered up everything I needed power for.
On the downside, its a little bit noisier than I thought with it maxing out around 92DB, but I put it down to acoustics and environment - and the battery holder bracket was not the correct type but I adapted with cable ties.
The fuel tap where it screws into the tank has a slight weep of fuel and I suspect the o-ring has perished or been over-tightened so I now have to drain the fuel to rectify.
All in all, I am happy with this unit and should get many good years out of it

Received generator unpacked it and put it together in 45 minutes. Fuel and oil started straight away. Next power outage won't be a problem. Only negative lacking info on fuel rating and oil type. Sticker on fuel take with this info would be handy.
Great price and service Thanks BBT

We received the BBT 8000I generator last Monday, put it together in about half an hour, filled it with oil and fuel, closed the choke and turned the key - it started straight away.
Never had a chance to test it properly until today (Saturday) when our power went down about 11 and probably won't be back until 6 tonight - if we are lucky!
The generator is working great. It even ran out 2.5 HP air conditioner without raising a sweat.
Thoroughly recommended - John.

I picked up my BBT 8000I generator and as usual I was very well looked after by the friendly staff at BBT. It took me about half an hour to unpack it and assemble it. The battery had plenty of charge and with a bit of fuel and oil it started first go. I immediately hooked up a 170 amp welder and arced it up. The 8000I didn't even flinch when the load came on. Very happy with its performance.
