Not sure of the year. Is an older Craftsman generator. I believe they were made by generac for Craftsman. It looks like it has a kohler engine on it. It was taken apart years ago and sandblasted and painted john deere green. Its been sitting in my garage for 10 or so years. Runs great. Usually starts by third pull. Also has the option for a battery for starting. The engine im sure has very little use.
