McCulloch Generators... A Vast Wasteland

Dear McCulloch Generator Company,

Thanks. My family and I felt incredibly prepared when two days before Hurricane Katrina hit my Dad returned from Sam's with a brand spanking new $600 McCulloch FG5700AK Generator.

We truly appreciate that five days into surviving the aftermath of Katrina the fuel line ruptured leaking gasoline straight onto the very hot engine... we're lucky the entire damn house didn't burn down.

After some handy repairing and running well for another day, all electric output CEASED. Oh and yeah we did everything possible regarding the fuses.

Luckily a neighbor of ours had a spare generator, a Briggs & Stratton and its working just fine.

Today your $600 generator works great as a shelf, saving us from any potential back injuries from stooping over to get a water.

Your generators, your coolers! All those vibrant colors! The yellow just adds to the party atmosphere! Too bad I read somewhere that yellow attracts mosquitoes. Darn.

:) hang in there!

i'm getting a very marlon brando, island of dr moreau groove coming from you now. Please think twice before any cross-specis experiments. The world does not need dogs thay have mosquito wings or anything. Bad craziness sounds like the overall theme down there.
stay sane.

yeah previous mr or ms anonymous, cause you know, its not a good idea to take into account the love and family history of a city when deciding where to live.

residence is not always about convenience and safety. sometimes its just about what feels like home.

and i hate to remind everyone, but there is a lot of blame to be put on the federal government. we voted them into office, and obviously they have failed to return any favors.

i say, good luck to you blog-writer! as a fellow new orleanian, i have been nothing short of devoted to your posts and impressed by your post-hurricane help efforts.

Katrina - McCulloch Generator Story.
Tnks for your comments. I am going to buy a generator for the same reasons (emergency-backup) and can't afford POOR QUALITY and PERFORMANCE.

TOO BAD FOR McCULLOCH ... they have numerous horror stories about their products. You get quality when you build to quality standards.

I quess you get what you pay for! I'll pay more for a generator that my family can depend on!

Tnks again for you story.
