    Life saver

    We were in the middle of the bush fires. No power for weeks, so needed a couple of affordable generators, which would power all of the appliances we need to live a normal life. Also, the generators needed to be easy enough to use, that a single woman can operate it without having to go to the gym for 5 months first. This Gen does all of that. Very happy customer. Not only with the product, but also with the site, the super fast shipping and support.

    Good runner for a good price!

    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. Downsides: 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.

    Great value.

    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.

    Awesome Machine

    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.

    Started first go!

    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

    BBT 8000i generator

    Posted by Unknown on 1st Dec 2016

    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
