The Lifan Platinum Series LF8500iEPL is a unique generator because it has a lot of features that are not found in other generators. For example, it has an 8,500 peak wattage, which means you will be able to run all the appliances you need during an emergency. It also has recoil and electric start type, which makes it easy to start even if you're new to it. Additionally, it has a 6.5-gallon fuel tank, which is larger than most generators. Finally, it has an 8-hour run time at 50% load, which is longer than most generators.
