Ridgid portable generator w/OEM engine

I am looking at the model RD906500P genset for backup power. Electrically the specs and features look pretty good compared to others, But, it now looks like Ridgid is now supplying this with OEM engines made by JIANGDONG (JIANGSU JIANGDONG GROUP) rather than the Yamaha MZ series.

Ridgid claims to supply parts for for the engine. Parts for the gen head can be found from various parts suppliers. Anyone have any experience with these JIANGDONG engines for reliabilty , parts availabilty etc?
