Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for NO Power Purchased this because of many power failures here in the Santa Cruz Mountains this last winter, put it together, and it started right up! That is much appreciated and very good. Have only used twice but excellent product and reputation will not have to worry about no power for years to come!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GP3250 Carb compliant 4 Outlet 005789-0 I bought this Carb unit online from HD after we lost power for more than 3 days in October. I couldn't afford a larger whole house unit, so I went with this model with the intent of handing it off to a family member in the spring (Who wont wire it into the fuse panel), hense choosing the one with 4 outlets. It arrived in A+ condition, no broken parts. It went together quickly and started on the 2nd or 3rd pull. I tested some power tools and they all ran fine. The concerns online with these generacs scared me as they seem to arrive broken and don't generate electricity 1/2 of the time out of the box. It looks like I got a good one. My only complaint was the adding of the oil instructions. Fill, check, fill check and repeat until full but there is nothing saying what is "Full" It would have been easy to have the oil pre measured and to state "Add entire contents"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Here's what you should know about the Generac GP3250 that the sales literature doesn't tell you: 1) There's no hour meter (the claim on the home depot website is false). 2) The unit comes with a 14Amp fast-blow circuit breaker. Consequently, it WILL NOT provide the full 3250 Watts to a single 120VAC load (such as the furnace blower I'm trying to run). Not even close. My furnace only needs 6 Amps to run, but it needs 22 Amps (2640 Watts) for the first 2 seconds upon startup of the furnace. The generator's 14 Amp breaker trips before the furnace starts. Strange that the furnace works on a 20 Amp hydro panel circuit - it must be a slow-blow breaker. It might provide 3250 Watts to several 120V devices spread over its 2 circuits, but I haven't tested it. In all other respects, it seems like a good generator.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk - Don't Buy! After 6 hours of operation it stopped generating electrical power, even though the breaker hadn't tripped. No apparent reason. Called Generac on Sunday - they don't work weekends. Took it back to see if it could get repaired - no. (Wasn't Home Depot) But there was a guy in front of me with the same generator with the same problem. So thanks Generac, I'm in DC, no power for a week, 101 degrees. Don't buy this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from homeowner I found this generator to fit my needs. Its light enough to move around and put in the back of my pick-up. It supplys enough power for short term emergencys. I would recommend this generator for the homeowner looking for short term emergency electrical needs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little generator Bought last year. Starter cord beginning to fray, might be due to the location which is behind the frame/cage, which makes it mildly awkward for starting. Starts up easily, runs great. Use a heavy duty cord to run high power items like a worm drive or chop saws, other wise with a smaller dia. cord it may trip the breaker. At my cabin will run a 240v well, 110v shop vacuum & LED lights at the same time without any issues. Good on gas too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what we wanted! We decided to buy this Generac after researching generators. We like that it's American built and very lightweight. I has four outlets and is very quiet. We will be grateful to have it should we lose power again like we did during the hurricane.
