Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

What are the brand, model and serial numbers of the genset?

While it is running, does it run good, or does it surge?

When it shuts down, does it just shut off like someone turned it off, or does it rough or backfire or anything?

Will it immediately restart, or does it have to sit for a while before it will restart?
