Nope. I got the 3600SIE -- ELECTRIC START. With the pull rope backup. When I am gone fishing or hunting for the day, my wife can start the Boliy by just pushing the button. Remember "a happy wife is a happy life".

Bob -- go back & remove outlet panel, look up above all the wires and maybe you'll see that the charger microchip is not "tightly" connected. Please go to page 2 - #25 quote in this forum to see how I fixed this same problem. Hope this help. -- CH

I forgot to mention that there was a $100 rebate on this buy. I paid $1090 before the rebate - total $990. A Honda would have cost me $2400+

Bob, pull the front insp door open and look inside in the lower left hand corner and make sure the two wire-ends are plugged together. Recharge the battery and then see if it works. Good luck

Good catch on that rebate. The Honda - yep, that's why I have the Boliy and have $1000 plus more bucks to add other 'toys' like the new E-Z Flex suspension waiting to be installed and the 5th Airborne or MorRyde pin box I'm about to order

Have the Honda 2,000. Bought it because it runs everything on our fiver except AC -extreme heat will find us in a park.

With a Honda you pay for: 1) light weight - under 50 lb, 2) most quiet gen available, 3) 1st pull starting, 4) fuel stingy. 5) Honda reliability - no need for a field test.

I sincerely doubt anyone here has a problem with the Honda - except the price for a device that's used so sparingly, at least in my case. Oh and the Boliy - it will run my 13,000 Btu a/c.

Now, when I win the Lottery .......

Saw 3 Honda at the repair shop the other day. Oh and the Boliy - it will run my 15,000 Btu a/c.
Glad you like your Honda. They are great.

If we were a booddockers in Quartsite and needed AC, that Boliy might be the ans. Honda is small and light. Tucks in my storage area taking little space. Probably last forever. We do Quartisite in Jan sometimes. All I need is something to keep batt's up and run the TV, micro and washer/dryer occassionaly (not all at once). The 2,000 does that and my back doesn't complain. Spendy but worth it for size, weight, noise and reliablility.

Have been reading the Boliy reports and impressed. Now, if they are running good in 5 years, quite a machine. I know the Honda will be.
Cheers, Ray

Finally got a chance to remove the panel and look at the microchip and the wires connected to it. The were all connected and appeared to be tight. I have charged the battery with a battery charger and that has worked. It is a pain since it should charge by itself. Actually I removed the access panel with the key in it and all of those wires are tight also.

I've had a 3600sie for nearly a year.

Have relpaced rectifier coils, inverter & carb controller. Make sure to meter all replacement wiring, I had a bad connection in the new rectifier assy. Be prepared to cut, replace or modify plugs on new relacement parts. Only one original plug remains on the parts I've replaced.

After replacing the inverter mine no longer starts my compressor or either ac. Mine does not like cold weather, anything under 40 F is real problems.

I don't like the gas filler, gas bubbles all over when filling with a 5 gal can. Would be better w/o the gas filter.

It runs 9hrs 12mins on a full fuel tank with 650 watt resistive load (radiant heater). I won't have an big batteries and inverter this year at Q'site, so needed to find realistic runtime. The max known load I've applied is about 2650 resistive watts, it handled that well once well warmed up.
