where are you buying it from? Home depot sells it and their website says that the assembled height of the machine is 24". It is a stocked generator at some stores and a store is usually more than willing to assemble and take a measurement for you. I work in a home depot repairing the tools and I recommend if you get that to not leave fuel in the tank for more that a couple of months. Powermate products are made and asia and parts take a few weeks to come in. The carbs do not clean well and gunk up if fuel is left in them for as little as 3 months. The manufacturer recommends that they just get replaced rather than cleaned. The best product I've found to clean out the powermate carbs is called Mechanic in a Bottle (sold at home depot). I just figured I'd give you some info that you usually wont hear at the store or from the manufacturer before you buy. As long as you're vigilant on you maintenance the powermates are good machines for the money though.

 Re: Height of Powermate in reply to thebigyellowtruck, 05-16-2013 11:22:55  
Thanks for the info. A couple of Amazon customers have replied to my inquiry. One said the unit was "about" 22" without wheels & feet and the other said it was 22 3/4" without wheels & feet. Looks like the dimensions listed in the specs are the out of box but unassembled dimensions.

None of the Home Depots within 50-miles of me carry the Powermates in stock. They carry Powerhouse but that equivalent unit is even bigger.

Looks like I have a decision to make. Transport it uncovered in the bed of my truck or purchase a smaller unit.

Thanks again for your time.
