Customer Photo of a B&S Generator: We will lower the score to #5 (from #2)

UPDATE: October 13, 2011: A few more customers have had a chance to chime in on the B&S 030473 generator over this Summer and Fall.

Since more customers have had a chance to really use the Briggs & Stratton 030473 inverter generator – we will have to lower this one down to a 5th Place or so. Initially, it had come in at #2.

Despite this, there are still come nice features that we like for this Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review

1) It is a pretty quiet generator with a dB rating of 64 decibels

2) The Briggs and Stratton is light – 50 lbs – and easily moved about (as seen in the customer comments below)

Here is a sample of some of the good and not so good comments for this updated Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review:

Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review From Real Customers: The Good

“Used it camping for 5 days, works great. A bit louder then the Honda but for $500 less, this is the one to buy. Starts easy. With no load it makes very low noise. Add a load it revs up and works great. 5 stars from me. Very happy.”

“It’s a bit louder than a Honda, but not much, not enough to really care about. 105cc’s will make some noise. It’s slightly larger in size, but again, not very noticeable. Easy to carry and the controls are simple. A very good choice for the average homeowner/casual user.”

Briggs and Stratton 030473 Review From Real Customers: The Sorta Bad and the Ugly

“The generator is very quiet, provides ample power for a tailgate, and sips gas. After 4 tailgates it suddenly stopped putting out AC power. It was in the middle of the tailgate and very inconvenient. I took it to an authorized Briggs and Stratton service center. They fixed it in one day. It appears a lead had come loose from the DC output to the inverter. The repair was fully covered under the warranty.”

“To follow up on powering my boat’s A/C, I purchased the Yamaha and it did power my boat’s A/C without complaint and even in Eco Mode. I ran the Briggs & Stratton 030473 next to the Yamaha. There was a definite difference in the noise levels between the two. You do get what you pay for. The Yamaha performed better, was lighter, and was also quieter. It was definitely worth the extra money to me. I could hardly hear the Yamaha generator running when inside the boat. I’m leaving the rating at two stars for the B&S. It does work but it doesn’t perform as expected. Lesson learned…”

An ETQ IN2500i Inverter Generator Review

As you will see below in the comments section below, several people “wish that this ETQ generator was quieter.” One person had a hard time getting customer service to respond to his requests to fix the choke. He says he wished he had purchased a Honda generator instead as, according to him, they are much quieter.

This doesn’t mean that this is all bad for the ETQ IN2500I – as it has received positive marks from others as well.
