CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 576 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A solid mid-level size generator for emergency use This generator arrived 2 days after Superstorm Sandy hit and left me without power. It took 30 minutes to unwrap it and put it together (attach the wheels, fill it with oil and gas). It fired right up on the first pull. With ease, it runs my refrigerator, a handful of lights, TV, cable box, modem, space heater and an occasional microwave use. It was averaging 12 hours of run time before needing to be refueled for the 96 straight hours of use before our power came back. It appears to be solidly built with high quality materials. Nothing felt flimsy. Changing the oil was a breeze. As others have noted, it is loud. For example, it is far louder than my 2 stage snow blower, and I quickly learned to wear ear protection when I am near it. But that's a small inconvenience compared with it's usefulness.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This generator is well worth the money! This generator starts the first time every time I try to start it. I am a small frame woman and I find this generator also very easy to pull around versus other generators we have had and I don't have to depend on my husband to help me move it or to get it started. This generator is such a good generator and very appealing that someone cut a steel cable and stole my first one right out of the back of my truck in a restaurant parking lot and that is why I went back and bought another one to replace the one that the thief found irrestable. So not only do honest people appreciate the value of this generator so do dishonest people. March 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent for home supplement Living out in a rural area, when we lose power in storms or fallen trees/limbs, it does take a while to get it restored. Now with the Generac generator we are ready to protect food in the freezer and fridge. We also have well water and will now be able to connect the well pump to keep water running in the house. With our electric chain saw we can now take the generator to the problem and deal with it instead of having to wait for power to return and hope we have a long enough cord to get out on the property. The purchase of this product has taken a big load off our shoulders and now do not dread the loss of power. We are ready to deal with situation. Thanks Generac!!! April 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of power at a great price. I purchased the GP5500 to serve as a source of backup power primarily to keep my mother's O2 concentrater running instead of only having a limited amount of O2 tanks on reserve. It has enough power to run her unit, their fridge, TV and satellite as well as some lights. We will be looking into a transfer switch to make it a little easier to get everything running soon. Well almost everything. Also this will allow me to run my table saw in my shop instead of having to run a longer extention cord out to the shop I can just set it up outside it and I'm good to go. It'll run the saw, shop vac and a shop light. March 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RAN FLAWLESSLY 24/7 FOR 10 STRAIGHT DAYS AFTER SANDY EASY TO START. PLENTY OF POWER. HAD REFRIGERATOR, FURNACE, TV W/ CABLE BOX AND MODEM, A FEW LAMPS , TWO SUMP PUMPS AND RAN A LINE TO EACH OF MY NEIGHBORS FOR THEIR SUMP PUMPS. IT RAN 24/7 (EXCEPT TO GAS AND DO 2 OIL CHANGES) FOR 10 STRAIGHT DAYS FOLLOWING HURRICANE SANDY. GOT ABOUT 10 HRS ON A FULL TANK. SUMPS PUMPS FILLED EVERY TEN MINUTES SO I COULDN'T EVEN COOL IT DOWN FOR LONG. THIS GENERATOR SAVED 3 HOMES , BLOCKS FROM THE RARITAN BAY ON THE JERSEY SHORE FROM FLOODING. KEPT US WARM AND MY MILK COLD. I CAN'T GIVE A LONG TERM REVIEW BEING I PICKED IT UP THE DAY OF THE HURRICANE. IT ALL READY PAID FOR ITSELF AS November 7, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very well built unit. This generator is well built and has low noise,great for all around use. April 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just enough Use if for camping. What a lifesaver at times when you don't want to be around people and find a secluded spot March 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product has been proven to be a reliable and economical. I have used this generator for emergency standby power during outages several times and it keeps the water well, refrigerators,lights, and television working. I have also used this generator for several outside construction projects using air compressors, drills, saws nail gun etc. performs well with steady reliable power. Would recommend this generator. I particularly like the electric start. With good normal maintenance I expect many years of reliable service. March 11, 2015
