Seeing the price of his generator and the fact that no one had written a review about it yet, which I took to mean nobody has bought one yet, of course automatically made me skeptical. But I took the plunge and I ordered one, and although I am very hard to impress, “I WAS IMPRESSED”!
Although I ordered it from Amazon, it was sent by the company who makes/markets it. What further gave me pause, was upon checking out there was a choice for “expedited” shipping, which I through had to be a typographical error, or the hard truth, but was nearly $200 more than the generator cost, so clearly I did not use expedited shipping! It only took five days to get it anyway!
The machine was well packed! The first thing I noticed despite the UPS drivers complaints, was that it was not nearly as heavy as the last 2KW Inverter generator I bought, which was a Champion.
I received the generator last night, so this morning I took it to work we me and put the oil and gasoline in, I set the controls for the engine to run, and then held my breath, still thinking that I possibly made a terrible mistake – still thinking of how I would get the fuel back out of it and drain the oil so it could be shipped back.
It didn’t start on the 1st pull and for the 1st startup of any generator, that would not have been detrimental anyway, but I deliberately pulled it only halfway in an effort to circulate the oil a little bit. But on the second pull, which was a full pull, this thing fired right up. Now if first impressions are important to most people, here is where I was REALLY IMPRESSED! This thing was amazingly quiet and this it was not in the economy mode either! I stood there in total amazement, that a machine, that was priced hundreds less than even terrible generators on Amazon and 600 less than a Honda, would be so smooth and so quiet. And I know people who own Honda inverter generators. I called one over to hear this thing, and he was impressed! I mean even with your hand on this thing, while it is running, I felt very little of the vibration that was felt in the other inverter generators I owned!
So after letting it run for about 15 minutes to stabilize and equalize, I put nearly a full load on it, which consisted of a round 5 foot wide fan, and a 5 gallon shop wet and dry vacuum, a total of about 13 amps! So I said it in economy mode, plugged in these two devices, and let ‘er rip! This little inexpensive lime green machine, picked up the load perfectly, did not stumble any bit, and only got slightly louder. The amazing part is that, with the exhaust pipe facing the outside, this machine was actually inside of a building about 4 feet from a rollup door. There is a wall separating the area the generator was in and another area of the building where I normally work, and the actual distance is only about 20 feet, and you could barely hear the generator under a full load. In fact the fan was louder than the generator and it was connected with an extension cord about 30 feet away!
One of my employees was working just a few feet from the generator, and she was still able to hear her Bluetooth speaker connected to her phone with virtually no trouble just standing a few feet away!
I let the machine run for well over an hour under that load. I then removed the load and allowed it to run at an idle for about 10 minutes before shutting it completely down. There were no unusual smells. The was no smell of gasoline. And much to my surprise this generator even has a gas gauge that sits on top just opposite the fuel tank opening. Not much fuel had been burnt!
10 minutes later I picked up is relatively light generator, placed it in the trunk of my small car, and took it home!
I know there will be a lot of complaints about it in other reviews and not everyone will get a perfect machine. As with any product there are some that will be “lemons”. The first chief complaint I see from people is the placement of the oil fill and dipstick. I have extremely large hands and I had no trouble whatsoever unscrewing the dipstick and accessing the oil fill, with the oil funnel that comes with the unit! The placement of the oil fill should not be used as a determining factor on whether or not a machine is good or bad! I can think of 100 complaints that people will have, but in reality and in practicality, this machine did exactly what it was supposed to do, it did it quietly, it did it efficiently, and I’m extremely impressed with it! A real good value for the money.
Most of all I am glad I did not have to spend $500, $600, $700, $800, or even $1000 to get the same kind of product, that is just as quiet, and just as efficient!
The price is right and the machine is right – I’m happy!

So the user guide is utter bollocks, the pictures weren’t even from the unit I bought, so then I had to second guess whether the instructions were right about how much oil to add (0.35L is correct) or what gas to use (regular 87 is fine) or whether ethanol fuel is ok : (it was )… I emailed like 10 questions to the customer service and they replied within 24 hrs (over the weekend) ; awesome !!!
So in essence : it’s light, (Less than 50lbs) looks good, the footprint is small (tall & narrow) which worked good on my RV amount, it started easily, it’s quiet, and CS were there for me when I needed them… and all for $359. LOVE â¤ï¸

I borrowed a Honda 2000W to compare and the Amico is actually a couple of decibels quieter at full power. I ran my fridge for an hour with no issues. I would have given 5 stars, but I am not impressed with the owner’s manual, and no warranty card.

We sold our boat bought a travel trailer and this little gem of a generator.
Right off I was impressed by the tools and funnel that came with it, quality at a glance seemed better than others I seen at twice the price put oil â½ in it. First pull fired right up! I was impressed.
It would not run the A.C. Unit! In our 27ft camper but I was unsure it would from the start! So it really was no surprize.
So we bought another one to parallel with it. Will let you know how they work together when I get the other one!
Overview; good quality for the price! I hate green but like the bright color (theft deterent) not impressed by oil fill placement!
Very quite,I would buy it again and have! At the price I could buy three of these beauties and have money left over compared to some
High priced generator 4 stars because of oil fill,have not had it very long enough to see how it performs long term.
