vstork's review of Aurora Generators Inc. Silent Diesel Generator

☆☆☆☆☆

“We have had this generator for exactly a year.”

Written on: 19/12/2007 by vstork (1 review written)

Good Points
The generator was easy to start when it was not down and actually would start.

Bad Points
We went through 3 starters and it has just died again. Cause as yet unknown.
I think the service is horrible.
And in my opinion it is extremely unreliable.
I have a Honda generator from the eighties that I have been reduced to using. It is reliable.

General Comments
We have had this generator for exactly a year.
So far it has been dead 75% more than it has been alive. While under warranty it took a long time for us to actually receive the part (starter) we needed. Consequently, we went through 3 starters = 3 months or more just sitting.
We have had vibration problems: air filter holder snapped off (not under warranty) plus they happily informed us we were now out of warranty.
A week ago while it was going it just died. We have as of yet not found the cause. It cranks but does not catch.
In short, if you are thinking of buying a generator look at something with a more reliable track record and better service.
If I had to do it again I would buy something that was US made with a solid reputation. Or a Honda which just seems to run and run...
