Asked by: steff
Generac's GP5500 portable generator, model number 5945 features an AC rated output of 6500 running watts. We would recommend ensuring any loads you connect to the unit not exceed the output ratings of the 120/240V 30A L14-30R twist lock outlet or the 25-amp 2-pole circuit breaker that protects that particular outlet.

5,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 580.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator, pull start issue This has been a good generator for several years now. This moring however the recoil start (mostly plastic) broke, turning my generator into a 700 dollar hunk of metal. I was able to remove the pull start, and ultimately use a rope to start it, meanwhile my wife got the kids ready for school as i fought with the recoil. When I called Customer service they were incredibly helpful and they are shipping me a new recoil. I would buy this again, but i think the recoil should be upgraded from the factory, its rather frustrating having a 700 dollar generator rendered useless by a 10 dollar plastic part!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless running machine that works when you need it most. I purchased this generator just prior to Hurricane Harvey. We live in Victoria Texas and took a pretty hard hit from the storm and consequently were without power for days. This generator powered our refrigerators and freezers in the house, my water well and aerobic septic system, and the AC in my camper. Because of this generator our food was saved and it made living conditions much more bearable for the family. This is my first Generac and I'll never own anything else. Thank you for building such a reliable product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This generator is a blessing. I have to admit I didn't buy it but when I bought my house it was part of the deal that they would leave it. I have had to use it twice due to severe storms and the first time was for a few days straight. Runs my entire house except for the central air unit, stove or water heater. All rooms had power. I plan on buying another one just for a back up and for when I go camping so I don't have to depend on just one. Never know what could happen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very simple to use, easy to move around!! I bought this unit under duress,(our power went out because of storms,my old generator,20 years old, would not start up,,started out with one problem and ended up with 3 problems when the fuel valve broke off in the tank!!!,5 hrs into no electricity!!) The wife sent me to the local Lawn Mower shop to buy a new one(generator). The ''Generac'' came home with me, and we saved our,and our 2 neighbors food.(3 refrigerators and 2 freezers)!!! NICE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I purchased this product. Three weeks after purchasing the generator, my neighborhood lost power for four days. This product worked great the entire time. It is extremely easy to operate and move around. I was able run my refrigerator, take hot showers, and I was able to do a load of laundry too. In fact, my neighbors blame me for the power loss since it happened shortly after the purchase. I am thrilled I own this product. Everyone should own one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Your product has everything I needed I have only used the generator one time for a few hours. I realize that running 3 extension cords is not the way to go so I have invested in a control panel. My one negative is the required use of multiple oils depending on whether it is for summer or winter use. It seems like you could recommend one oil that would work between the temperatures of 0 degrees and 90 degrees to cover the range of central new york weather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blown away! This generator is fantastic! We bought it after two days of no power from storms. Brought it home, unpacked it and had it together inside of a half hour. Fueled it up, added the oil and half a pull on the starter rope and she was purring right along. Handles a full 30 amp load with little effort. I would recommend to anyone who wants a fair priced reliable unit! Thanks for a great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality product at a great price Bought this unit as a source of back up power. Severe storms has already knocked out power twice in the first six months of this year and its not even summer yet. Well put together and easy to finish assembly. The free shipping and lift gate offer were nice too. Runs well and no issues. Great buy.
