Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 503 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Plug Well, it arrived with the cheap plastic spark plug wire broken in half. This should have been rubber like in autos. It's connected to the magneto so it's a big job. Took about 4 calls, 3 e-mails and 6 weeks to get resolved. Once that was fixed, I started it up with the first push of the button. Ran a little rough for about 15 minutes, then settled down to what I assume is normal. It does seem to do the job, and I'm still happy with the end results. The rest of the generator seems to be quality work and material though. So it gets 4 stars. October 8, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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., May 14, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Warm in New Hampshire The Generator setup was very simple. I would recommend looking at the Generac Manual online and picking up the oil that is correct for you climate. It comes with SAE 30 which is like syrup here in NH. Once it was set up, I did a quick check that everything worked. It started within seconds of using electric start. Shut it down, covered it up, ready for the first power outage. Lost power the next night and generator lasted 10 hours on one tank. It ran my entire house, well pump, furnace, lights, TV, everything with the exception of oven and dryer. The only house for miles with power. We have used it several more times and it is only January. Great Buy January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Generator It arrived perfect. And very well packaged. Installing wheels and handles were a piece of cake. I built a custom shed for it. Connected it to my home transfer switch. It powered my home with no problem. Its powerful. It ran well for about two hours straight. No leaks, no overheating. I connected battery to a solar panel, so its perfectly charged when i need it. I wont be caught offguard again, like with SANDY. I highly recommend this generator. It was on backorder, and i waited almost two months for it. It was worth the wait. And the price was excellent at $999. Well built. And features are all great. February 28, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible warranty service. Bought it brand new. First time putting gas in, it leaks gas and Generac wont repair it. Never started it because it leaks gas. It is under warranty but Generac customer service just stalls. TERRIBLE WARRANTY SERVICE. I cannot say anything good about this generator because I have never been able to use it. it has 0.0 hours use on it. Home Depot does not service this product so I cannot rate them on service.
