I have seen a few that had the windings blow apart from running too fast (excess centrifugal force). Also bad regulators on some old ones. My 15 KW sometimes won't make any power when I first use it after storing for a year or so. Then all of a sudden, something clicks in and then it works fine. There are new generic regulators available to fix them.

I would not be afraid of it. I've 12KW Winco bought used back in the early 80s after a tornado, followed by an ice storm took every pole in the county, it was weeks getting power back. Best investment I ever made. I purposely use my stick welder on it at least once a year. I built a small trailer that holds the generator, my welder and a 5 hp 220 air compressor. Nice little work unit, easy to move around the place. I use a digital VOM in the house to set the rpm when we have to use the thing. Just plug the meter into an outlet and read the voltage. The meter on the unit is fine, but by the time you run it through the transfer switch and into the buildings, you'll have voltage drop. My power comes in underground, fairly close to old granary with a lean to. Years ago we burned up a tractor during a winter storm, while running the generator it iced up the cowl/radiator and cooked. I've a cord from the transfer switch, I can park the tractor in the lean to, and I've a stove pipe up threw the roof I can lower over the tractor exhaust. Works slick..................
