ETQ TG72K12 Reviews


The vast majority of the reviews we found online for the ETQ TG72K12 Gas Powered Portable Generator were very positive. They agreed that this level of power output in a machine of this build quality and robustness is hard to find at this price. So, whilst not cheap by any means, the TG72K12 does represent value for money – both in initial purchase price and running costs.

Reviews also commented on the little extras you get like the fuel gauge on the unit (very convenient), the low oil shutoff, the hour meter and the very handy wheel kit which is included.

There weren’t negative comments as such rather a few things the potential buyer should be conscious of. Whilst the sales specification lists the generator as 14HP the engine produces something nearer 13HP. The unit can sometimes exceed 70Db and in a surge can reach 85Db. A battery is not included. So, you can reckon on the additional cost of purchasing a battery (around $35) or as one reviewer suggests you can do without and thereby avoid one less item to maintain.
