Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 602 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 Love It Purchased this 8/2/15. This is very easy to assemble. All there is to assemble is the wheels. handle. and feet. Add oil and fuel and it fired up on the second pull. Havent needed to use this yet but my plan when needed is to run fridge, lamps. fan, internet modem and tv. No doubt in my mind that this unit will handle that plus much more. Have a kerosene heater for heat in the winter so not running the furnace isnt a problem. For cooking we will use a 2 burner hot plate. Fiist time I fired it up I plugged in 3 hair dryers on high heat and generator never missed a beat or bogged down. Will start and run once a month for half hour and keep up on maintenance and Im sure I will get years of sevice from this. August 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 5500 Portable Generator Excellent reliable power generator - the only brand we use. Would like to purchase the power washer to clean home siding & wooden fence. August 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great product for your house. I originally bought thus generator to run our house incase of a power outage, we had a storm go through our area and lost power for about 24 hours. I purchase the generator to run my sub pump, fridge and freezer. It had no problem running them all. I did purchase a heavy duty 240v/30 amp which I would recommend. The fuel tank last about 10 to 16 hours depending on the load. August 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by great features purchased product but haven't had a need for it yet. But impressed with most reviews I've seen . August 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product I purchased this generator during a mass storm in June 2015. We were without power for 4 days - which was lucky compared to others in our area. We used to to power 2 refrigerators & 1 freezer, and one night we used it for our oven & tv. It was easy to set up & begin operating quickly. We were mainly concerned with saving our food, as the weather was cool & we didn't need air conditioning or heat. It worked great - ran over 10 hours on 5 gallons of gas! We ran extension cords to neighbors, and eventually they ran out and bought their own generator. It is easily portable, easy to use, and easy to store for the next time. We now have peace of mind to "weather any storm" in the future. June 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good value Got this to replace smaller GP 3250, needed more power due to outages getting longer. Also 30A 110/220V connector allows connection to load centrr (breaker box) via disconnect switch. No more extension cords. Wanted the LP 5500, but Generac does not allow that to be connected to a large propane tank, only 20 & 30 lb. bottles. Claims it will void the warrany, propane is propane?? GP 5500 is excellent and reccomend it. July 27, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The product works good This generator starts hard in the morning . After it is started works real good . It goes a long time on a tank of gas. August 5, 2015
