cant decide between generac 7500 or ridgid 6800

Asked by: Anonymous
I can't speak to the Rigid as I haven't tried it. I bought 2 of the Generac 7500s and they both failed shortly after purchase. Both seemed to be faulty engine block castings. Generac as a whole make good large generators which I use. The small ones... not so much.

Took no time at all to put it together and when he hit the start button it fired up and ran smooth. We gave a test run and it ran everything that I wanted. It came with everything and nothing was missing or broke. Being a female and not knowing a thing about generators, I took my friends advice and purchased this one because it had all the features that he recommended after looking at 7 others. Was not planning on spending that much money but electric start is not cheap. Standing next to it was a little on the loud side but I could hardly hear it inside.

I have not used it yet but my brother which is an electrician said this is a good brand of generators and the wattage is enough to run the 110/120 appliances in the whole house. Not enough for the heating and cooling systems but enough.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware I've been trying since last December to get the manufacturer to fix an oil leak. I keep getting the same answer: we have no service centers in your area. Our technician says you have a bad head gasket which we will send you and you can replace it yourself. It is easy to do! I don't know how a technician can properly diagnose my problem over the phone without even laying eyes on my unit. That aside, I'm not a small engine repair person and I don't appreciate the manufacturer continually trying to get me to do their job. It's obviously they do not have an established repair network in this country and they cannot full fill their warranty obligations. I imagine later this year when the warranty period is up they will just tell me "sorry but your unit is out of warranty and we cannot help you since your issue is no longer covered." Buyer beware!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Starts easy and runs well Simple to prepare for use and install wheels and handle. Starts easy and runs well. I use it to power the house in power outages and with a little care it will do it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a quality item or company Purchased this item in November, used it for less than 10 hours. Stored after running machine dry of fuel. 3 months later started the generator to find fuel running out of the carb. Contacted Generac and was told the item would be covered and to take it to a certified service location. Did that only to find that Generac denied warranty coverage. Paid over $100 for repairs to a 3 month old unit. 6 months later the same thing occurred. Must be using the absolute cheapest parts in the carb they can find. Never again Generac, never again........

Rated 1 out of 5 by from COMPLETE LET DOWN and DISAPPOINTMENT First off, I really thought that by having a Generac, I couldn't go wrong. I was sure of it. I mean, they are made in America, right? Good old Wisconsin based and right in the heartland of the good old USA. That, in and of itself, was enough for me to spring the $1000 to take one of these babies home. So, that's what I did. We live in the rainy, windy Pacific Northwest where the power goes out on a regular basis. I needed a unit capable of making enough power to serve as a whole house alternate power means. After saving up the money to finally provide my family with back up power, I pulled the trigger on the Generac GP7500E. I also purchased a transfer switch and all the necessary equipment to have it installed correctly. I was excited to have the electric start model which, to this day, works perfectly (the starting system). I have a covered generator shed that has a roof and two insulated walls, kind of like a carport but with insulation in the walls and ceiling. So it is never in the rain. I broke it in by warming it up with no load and letting it cool down (completely) a few times. One thing I never liked about this generator is it didn't have any idle down feature at all. It runs full operational RPM at all times whether there is a load or not. This is STUPID Generac, STUPID. The unit worked perfectly for the first 22 hours of use. I know this because there is an hour meter on the front panel. Every second that the gen is running, it is keeping track of the time. After those first 22 hours (3 power outages spread over a 3 month period) the generator stopped producing AC voltage. Period. It starts up like it did on day one, in fact it still looks like it did on day one. The thing is basically brand new and completely useless. I took it to a qualified repair shop. They ran all the tests that needed to be done and told me that the stator windings are completely ruined. The cost of repair would be near the same as the generator itself cost. After 22 hours. I could not believe it. I was amazed. So I brought it home and decided to look it over real good just trying to make SOME sense of what I had just learned from the mechanic. I was pretty bummed. Heartbroken to tell you the truth. As I was looking it over, I noticed something I had not seen before. It was a factory sticker with the model #, serial #, and a few other numbers on it. It was up under the front panel, basically a nameplate. At that point, it all made sense. Written at the bottom of that sticker were these words : GENERAC POWER SYSTEMS, INC. WAUKESHA, WI 53187 MADE IN CHINA I will never buy another Generac piece of equipment as long as I live.
