I recently received this generator for use and the packaging was no problem. Other reviews of this product term this machine as being different than others in the same class as this one and I say they are right. In addition to connecting a negative battery, I assembled wheels and lift bars and put some oil in the engine. It started well enough when I pushed the electric start button after adding gas and turning off the main breaker on the generator. For about 5 minutes, I let it run on its own after which I shut it down and plugged it into the exterior 30 amp box. I then restarted the machine, turned the main breaker of the house down, switched the generator breaker in the main ox on after moving over the interlock. Then the main breaker on the generator was turned on by me after which I just switched on the individual breakers in the panel each one at a time and we were good to go.
