After running a bit less than 700 hours. Replacement rods were really cheap thank goodness. Still, it was an expensive generator and it has me spoiled by its convenience. I used to have to pull out the portable Genny, fill it up, yank and yank the cord sometimes, lol. It didn't take long to get used to laying in the bed and waiting for the Generac to self start. Anyway, what do you guys think about the pushrod issue after only 700 hours? (And hi everybody, been AWOL here awhile).
