I agree with the buy Honda motto. Years ago I bough a generator with a Tecumseh engine. 2nd day, we had fireballs blowing out the exhaust. Took it back and got a Briggs. This time it failed to start on day 2 after running like crap on day one. Took that back also. Years later, after renting a few with Honda motors, I bought a nice 13 hp Honda generator. Paid for itself the first year. I have had it for 7 years now and will probably retire owning it.

Definitally- Honda and Robins/Subaru are the ones to go with.

Briggs and Stration are usually good in my experence.

Kohler and Tecumseh tend to be headaches from what I have seen.

of course, as Tgeb pointed out, the engine is only half the equasion.

The Honda Generators (not just a Honda engine) are really really nice, and super quiet as well.
