I can't say, when our Generac Generator arrived it was badly damaged. We our still trying to get this situation resolved.

The Generac 3250 is the best brand choice in this price range. I bought this generator for emergency back up only to power a refrigerator, furnace and a few lights. Keep in mind that you don't need to power everything at one time just to get through a few hour power outage. If you want to make coffee, shut the furnace off until your finished brewing. Some of these reviews claim the 3250 will not handle their power needs. Well Doctor, then why did you buy a 3,250 watt generator? Spend the $2,000 and get what you really need.

AC output not clean enough to run my Trane furnace.
Poor voltage regulation under load.

Bought this after a wind storm in Washington St. We are prepared for power-outage now. Very high quality item, easy to assemble, started on the second pull right out of the box. Very glad we made the purchase!

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bri65 Generac 3250 DON'T BE MISLEAD LIKE ME
This is a pretty nice generator overall, but don't be misled. It states that it is a 3250 watt generator but the breakers are 14 amp. Each outlet on the double receptacle can handle 14 amps and half the wattage capacity, or1625 watts. In other words, the total wattage is 3250 for both sides of the receptacle COMBINED. The breaker which is rated at 14 amps is also used for the 220 outlet. So if you are trying to power something with 220 volts, it will work just fine as long as it does not exceed the 14 amp rating. I ran my miter saw with a short extension cord and it tripped the breaker. When I tried it again it was fine so the surge mode from the startup must be very close to the 14 amps and that will automatically trip the breaker as a safety mechanism. As for this unit being quieter than most I would have to disagree. From what I understand this unit Is manufactured overseas, more than likely China. Some of Generac larger units are built in the United States. This particular generator is more or less a generic brand with a Generac name tag on it. Bottom line, it is a nice generator that starts up and runs fine so far, but just be certain that you do not intend to run anything with high amperage load or high startup amperage. I think it was misrepresented because I expected the full wattage accessibility to be across each outlet. The low 14 amp Breaker is more than likely designed to add to the longevity of the unit so it is not being overloaded. Not sure if it is going to be able to do the job, but time will tell. Do your research

bought this to replace my old, worn out gp4000. While the output is less, I've always had good experiences with generac products. Starts right up each time on the first pull. I have no had to use it in an emergency situation yet, but i exercise it once a month.
It's not very loud compared to others. you can hear it but it's not deafening. This was one of the selling points for me. Buy with confidence. Home Depot delivered to my door free of charge.
