Rated 3 out of 5 by Here's what you should know about the Generac GP3250 that the sales literature doesn't tell you: 1) There's no hour meter (the claim on the home depot website is false). 2) The unit comes with a 14Amp fast-blow circuit breaker. Consequently, it WILL NOT provide the full 3250 Watts to a single 120VAC load (such as the furnace blower I'm trying to run). Not even close. My furnace only needs 6 Amps to run, but it needs 22 Amps (2640 Watts) for the first 2 seconds upon startup of the furnace. The generator's 14 Amp breaker trips before the furnace starts. Strange that the furnace works on a 20 Amp hydro panel circuit - it must be a slow-blow breaker. It might provide 3250 Watts to several 120V devices spread over its 2 circuits, but I haven't tested it. In all other respects, it seems like a good generator. February 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Quality Product. Very easy to start, quite and very good looking generator. August 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smallest and lightest i've found with 240 volt plug Works great. Starts Easily. I like that I can use it to run my 240 volt well pump. Other brands would have forced me to buy a larger unit to have this option. August 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the color and easy to move around Purchased when hit by tornado, power out for 19 hours, the unit was lightweight and easy to start, very economical didnt use tons of gasoline. We liked the looks of the unit, and we were able to share the power with a neighbour and kept both our and there freezer and fridge working efficiently. The price was right , Great Deal, great product. Thanks August 14, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by actual load limits - do your math just to save someone some pain and heartache - this unit WILL NOT run the average 12,000 - 13500 BTU airconditioner found in most campers/rvs. you need to do the math before you buy a genertor. Remember: your aircondtioners BTU rating devided by 3414(watts in a "BTU") will give you the watts it will take. also remember your AC will draw slightly more in the first couple of seconds it starts up. (e.g. a 13,500 BTU unit will require a little over 3900 watts, 13,500 BTU devided by 3413(= to one kw) will give you 3,955 watts of demand). ALWAYS, ALWAYS do your research!!!!!!!!!!!
