If the electric start fails, is there a backup method to start the generator?

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.

7,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 687.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from this generator powers my whole house, granted there are only 2 of us, a 10,000 and 18,000 btu win... this generator powers my whole house, granted there are only 2 of us, a 10,000 and 18,000 btu window a/c units, lights t.v. well pump and it does'nt even burp. the only negative i found so far is it DOES"NT charge the battery when running, i start it about every 3 months and let it run for 15 to 30 mins. it has started first pull every time. The battery is dead, so i don't bother trying to keep it charged. it's tough to pull though. i've had it 3 years and had to use for real once during hurricane Mathew for about 6 problems. it's loud though so you will need a long cord. i have mine about 25 feet from the house and wired into the main service box, so all i do is kill the main breaker and start it up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 215 lb boat anchor After 4 years of carefully exercising motor every month and draining gas after EVERY use the motor ran rough.Took to local dealer. I was told metal shavings in oil . Engine is blown and needs to be replaced. Only 10 hours total on unit. Do not buy this overpriced junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly whatr I was looking for, and then some! Preferred a back-up generator for a sump pump system rather than a battery. This fits the bill, much more than what I had expected. In addition to the sump, it is sufficient to carry just about all of the electrical service my house needs, with a long run-time due in part to the large fuel tank, plus the push button start for a senior citizen makes this item is a worry free way to go. A short abrupt loss of power, or long time consuming type, they are one in the same as far as this item is concerned. The cost to "hook up" the connections for a free and easy push button start was high, but I suspect will be well worth the time, effort and money.,

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 Generac Generator This generator is all that the advt. said about it. It arrived on time and truck driver even offered to take the cardboard packing back. It was simple to put together and the directions on the box were a big help too.I put it together wheels and handle, put the oil in and it started right up. The battery does not charge when it is running so a battery maintainer should at least be mentioned in the ads. I bought one soon after. Thanks PED good job!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac GP7500E I have not had a chance to run this new generator for any extended period of time, but I can tell you do not buy a generator under 5000 watts if you intend to use many appliances. My 3/4 horse sump pump alone takes over 3000 watts to initiate. For the money you cannot beat this generator mine started right up after easy assembly and I have ran it a few times for 10 minutes for my personal beliefs for break in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GP7500E Great Generator, we finally purchased this one and I sure am glad I did. We have several power outages a year and it powers all of our needs. We have well water and it is nice to be able to take a shower and have heat when the power is out. Would recommend this product or any Generac Generator to anybody. Both of my bosses have whole home ones and work great too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't ask for a better Generator I have two generators, one I bought at a department store and used it for work and at home. Now I own a Generac GP7500E Generator. No comparison to the one I bought first, The Generac is much quieter, battery start with pull cord backup, more outlets and 30 amps. What more can you ask for except a whole house generator and Generac even makes them too.
