Questions & Answers

have GP7500 watt generac I dont see a reset button for hour meter. Does it reset automatically after an oil change?

reset button or does it do it automatically after an oil change
Asked by: Mike
Hour meters are not supposed to be reset. They take ALL the hours the machine is on for. You the human factor is to figure out the maintenance schedule. Get a little tie on tag and write down what/when you did something. Tie it to GenSet and your good.

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

Asked by: DGK
Yes it has a recoil starter

cant decide between generac 7500 or ridgid 6800

Asked by: steve
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.

Excellent product, just went through 7 days of no power with hurricane Irma, this thing didn't skip a beat, started up first pull every time, yes i know its battery start, however keeping that thing charged for 3 years is next to impossible! it starts first pull!! It ran an 18,00 and a 15,000 btu a/c 's 2 fridges and lights all at the same time , the only thing it didn't like was my well pump, so we took showers and did laundry in the morning when the a/c units weren't running. this unit is loud and uses a lot of gas, about 7 gals every 10-12 hours with the load i explained above. i would highly recommend this product!!! It was a life saver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly Recomend!! I brought this generator prior to relocating to Puerto Rico this year. When Hurricane Irma then Maria hit the island in September, I ran it 24X7 to power my home. I could not be happier. Had refrigerator and lights everyday until the power was restored November 25th. That was 2 plus months. Never a hiccup and on we washed our clothes in the washer. I invested in a transfer panel during the outage and that made the use even easier/ The electric start is a charm and changing the oil is easy. 10 days after the power was restored the lights went out again. Went to my generator, pushed the start button and it went back on line. Went I turned it off after 2 months I kissed it because it helped my wife and I get thru a difficult time. Buy this unit. I am a very careful shopper and only invest in quality products. If I seem enthusiastic, it is because it performed beyond my expectations. THANKS GENERAC!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, so far. The next day after I received it... Excellent, so far. The next day after I received it I had a power outage that lasted for two hours. It cranked immediately and ran perfectly, it was a very timely test. About ten days later hurricane Irma passed by and we lost power again for about four hours. Again it performed great.

Bought this October 2016 and hired a licensed electrician to hook it up to the house. It worked right out of the box no problem. At first I started it once a month for a half hour now I let it run for an hour. I give it a 5 and recommend it highly. Love the electric start!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Generac It is a little noisier than expected. But for 7500 watts and the portability, it is no issue at all. I've had other brands of generators in the past, and the quality of Generac has exceeded my expectations. As a homeowner and Master Electrician I give it an A+
Date published: 2017-09-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I recommend this product The generator is easy to use and to move around. The portability makes it useful in a number of different situations. The generator is a bit noisier than I would like, however, the convenience and ease of use out weighs this distraction. Should we experience another hurricane, we will be quite comfortable and safe. We plan to have this wired into our system so that our whole house will have power in the event of an extended outage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Post Hurricane Irma life saver My brother in law let us use his generator for a few days after we lost power during Hurricane Irma. After 5 days without power, I bought this Generac unit at home depot and it has made living without power palatable. I was very impressed with the features provided -- the hour meter and service schedule by hours; the electronic start; the 8 gallon tank; and a bunch of other benefits not found on the other units on my street.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent choise It took me 10 minutes to assemble it and start using it. I'm very pleased with the noise level as well as all the power I got for the price. It also looks amazing. Really heavy one, cant lie... but it is worth it. Best choice I've could made.
