3,250-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 200.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this so my wife could have backup power for our basement sump pump in case I was absent.... I bought this so my wife could have backup power for our basement sump pump in case I was absent. It is easy to set up and manuver. She was also able to start it with ease. It will also make a nice power source for tailgating as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emergency need. GP3300 Had a severe power outage of over 12 hours with no scheduled end in sight. Needed to save the fridge and freezer food. Nearest store had this Generac unit available. Mine is a GP3300 not the GP3250. I couldn't find the listing for mine. It offers a few more watts and has dual duplex outlets. Never used a portable generator before; instructions were clear and easy (although I didn't see where the large washers were to go/figured it out after it was assembled...axle spacers) Started on the 2nd pull and ran until city power came back online and I shut the Generac off. I've known of Generac because of doing maintenance on large industrial backup units. Appears to have been a good choice for the home, as well. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Live off the grid in Alaska Bought it to build my house which it did great.Had to replace the pull cord three times the last time the recoil spring broke so now I start it with my cordless drill. lf it doesn't start right up I add some oil then runs great. It now power's my house 13 plus hours a day every day and is going strong been a year now and love it .

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 5 out of 5 by from Ran/operated flawlessly 72 hrs straight I've had for several years. Used with a very little, light loads short time. Flawless during the emergency tornado activity in van Zandt co Texas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for a small generator I had this generator for almost 1 year. It started up every time and ran the loads that I hooked up to it. The best thing about this generator is that it can run 11 hours on 3.5 gallons of gas, so I do not have to stock up lots of gas. The noise is low compared to other generators. The downside is that it does not provide the clean power (low THD) that is needed to power electronic equipment including any newer furnace and refrigerator circuit boards. However, this is a great generator for a short outage or if used to power lights and tools. I am replacing this one with a little bigger Ridgid generator from Home Depot which provides the clean power that I think is essential for home backup power. Generac XP models provide clean power, but they are twice as expensive too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would have had to leave home if I didn't have it. Used the GP3250 for over 80hrs.in aftermath of hurricane Sandy.Ran refridge/freezer,gas furnace.2 small tv's.3 lamps with low watt LED bulbs.Also able to charge cell phones.Used multiple outlet surge protectors to distribute power.I had no power for over 8 days.Ran the gen.on & off for 8 to 12hrs. a day.Not an ideal situation.But it was livable.Glad I had it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product main value is a 240 volt output. It handles a 7500 BTU 115 volt air conditioner no problem and is able to start and run a 240 volt 1/2 hp shallow well pump. It can do either the a/c or the pump, but not both at once. Not too noisy and pretty good on fuel consumption. Cannot start and run a 2 hp Makita saw, so this is not a good generator for construction use. Starts with one pull.
