Customer Reviews

5500-Watt Portable Generator with Electric Start Powered by Yanmar Engine-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A serious generator I ordered the S5500 online from Home Depot and only received it a couple weeks ago and have only used it twice. So this won't be the most informed product review. But since there aren't any others posted I figure that whatever I describe here may be better than nothing. The unit is very solid and well built and very heavy. It certainly seems to be high quality and made to run and run. The power quality seems to be very good. I ran a high amp power tool with it that makes the lights dim when I use the house power and it didn't cause any noticeable strain on the generator at all. This machine is meant for serious work. It didn't come with a battery, so I tried and tried and tried some more to pull start it. Forget it. Maybe I'm just an old weak guy, but there is no way I was going to get it started cold. So I went to the local auto parts store and purchased a battery. It was still hard to start and cut out a couple times before ramping up and running smooth. Perhaps it just took a while to get a good flow of fuel the first time. It has started easily everytime since the first start up (using the electric start of course). I tried to pull start it warm, but still no go. I figure that if the electric start is out on this thing, then I'll be stuck without power. I am a little dissapointed in the operation manual. It is somewhat generic to several models. In a couple places it says, "...if so equipped." But it never lays out which model is equipped with what. The diesel engine came with its own manual that is a little more detailed, but still generic to three models. In case you were wondering, this generator is loud. So if noise is an issue you will want to be aware. Initially I purchased the wrong wheel kit for it, returned that and got the right one, which is the S Class Wheel Kit (the more expensive one). If this is the type of generator you are looking for, I would not hesitate to recommend it.
