Don't be without power. The Smarter Tools GP-9500EB has a powerful 420cc engine and is perfect size in case you need some temporary power in an emergency situation or for every day usage at the construction site or other off-grid location. This workhorse is packed with features usually found on more expensive units such as digital hour/Volt/htz meter, electric start with 12-Volt 17AH battery, and no-flat tires that keep you rolling even around surfaces with sharp objects like a construction site. With four standard outlets, a 120V 30A twist-lock, a 120/240-Volt 30A twist-lock, and a 12-Volt DC plug, you will have plenty of power to work with. The generator is backed by a 2 year limited warranty and is EPA and CARB emissions approved (50 States).

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 119 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Value for the money When you do the comparisons you just cant beat the Smarter Tools 7500 Watt Generator. Set up was easy and directions were a breeze. Having it delivered free of charge to my garage was even better! I live in a National Forest and I've lost power three times on just the last month... having this gem is real peace of mind in the event of prolonged power loss. Thanks Home Depot! Just wish it had outlet covers for rain and dust, but with a little ingenuity it can be overcome. Be advised, don't use this generator to power sensitive electronics without a line conditioner and/or UPS. But it will provide you enough power to make all your neighbors jealous as they sit sweating in darkness and silence while you catch the last half of the game with ice in your tea! June 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good But Not All Is Good They seem to have corrected the rubbing wheels and short battery cables but other things come up short. The "2 year limited warranty" covers the California emissions control system only and the real warranty is 60 operating hours, or 1 year for residential use. I bought this unit as an upgrade from my 5000 watt Generac but only found out after purchase and assembly that the maximum power output from the 2 major outlets is a maximum of 3650 watts (each) and won't provide the extra power I counted on the power my 30A 5th wheel connector if we lose the power grid. It assembled easily, starts quickly and runs smoothly but it lacks the final quality of my Generac and I currently am selling this one. It's good, with some qualification, but not as good as it was made out to be. July 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Happy with this Generator I never like to write reviews unless I've had time to use the product. 1 year without a problem. I have an off-grid cabin so it gets plenty of use. Thanks. June 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great price for intended use. Haven't needed to use it yet, but the price was unbeatable for a generator this size. Putting together the grab handles, wheels, and legs was easy. When testing, it fired right up with no issues. Quality appears decent on the components. February 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The electric start is a shoulder saver. This generator came after my power was out for 6 days due to an ice storm that devastated are area. Having to borrow one for the duration, I quickly set to the Home Depot site to place my order. Once I received this generator and some minor assembly, and adding necessary fluids it started up the very 1st time. Now I'm prepared for any power crippling storm that might hit. My neighbors came buy to check it out and all 3 placed an order. I will be hard wiring it to my house once winter breaks here and I suspect I will be doing the same for my neighbors. I based my decision on this generator after extensive research on other models, found this one to be the most for the money. February 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator I didn't want to review it until I used it for a while. Well I have and so far I'm very happy with it. Starts right up and runs like a top. The electric start makes it simple. I choke it for no more than 20 seconds and it runs smooth. I've been powering a whole cabin with it. The gas gauge is a nice feature too. September 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product at the right price Arrived on time Easy assembly You get more for your money versus competitors similar models July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far perfect! I purchased this as prep for Sandy since we lose power on bright sunny windy days. Of course this time during a super storm we didn't even lose power. So far it has been perfect. Easy instructions. Good packaging, easy set up. Add oil and fuel, hook up the battery and it started right away. I ran it for about 15 minutes then shut it off. A few weeks later I turned it on, no problems and let it run for about 30 minutes to finish off the small amount of fuel it had in it from the first try. Also still no issues. I contacted Smarter Tools to ask them a question about an battery charging cable that was included but not mentioned in the manual. They were responsive and it only took about 24hours. I will update once I actually use it in a power loss and have a good load on it for a decent amount of time. November 28, 2012
