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.

Generac 7,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 767.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Seriously disappointed with the generator and Generac This is a copy of the review that I sent to generac for a GP6500E I purchased on special order from the store at 36526. I have had two previous generac generators, one purchased in 1998 and the other in 2005. No problems with either one. What is a big disappointment, is the fact that it is produced in China! You pour gas in the tank, and a little bit of gas dripped onto the outer surface of the tank. Within seconds, the top layer of the black paint evaporated, to expose a lower layer of black paint of a different type. The manual shows a spark arrestor screen, clamp and screw. The unit I have, does not have these parts. I called your 800 number to inquire about it, they apparently had no idea of what the story was. After 15 minutes on hold, I hung up and sent you an E-mail. After 24 hours I get an E-mail response to contact a local repair company. It would appear that Generac has isolated themselves from the consumer. I guess it was too much trouble, for that rep to look up the situation and solve the problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value While I only have a few hours on this generator, I've owned and used a few different models from different manufacturers. This one seem to be built on customer feedback. Simple features like the included fuel filter and the gas cap retention chain made me smile, along with the charging port for the battery and beefiness of the roll cage. Like many generators, it has a plastic choke lever, which I consider bad design. Its not a matter of if it will break, its when. There is plenty of torque on that lever. The included wheels aren't up to the quality of the rest of the product. They look and feel like they belong on a kids toy. I replaced them immediately with a better quality wheel w/ metal hubs and bearings. Otherwise, good product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Piece Of Equipment I purchased this generator after the Halloween nor'easter of 2011 that knocked out power to my area for several days. It took a month from the date ordered to the day of delivery but it seems like it was well worth the wait. All I had to do was remove the generator from it's well packaged carton, easily attach the handle, feet, wheels, battery, add oil, provided by the manufacturer and gasoline and it was ready to run. The engine fired up immediately and is smooth running. Maybe slightly louder than expected but not a problem. The electric start feature works like a charm and the pull start is easy too. After installing a generator transfer switch and a power inlet box I now feel protected and prepared for the next power outage that always seem to last longer and longer in duration these days. The true test will come the first time the generator will be needed but as for right now I am giving it 5 stars and would like to thank Generac for a very affordable alternate energy source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I just purchased the GP7500E for emergency backup for our house. We experience several power outages during the winter. This is my first purchase of a portable generator. It was easy to assemble. I added oil and gas, turned on the fuel, set the choke, pushed the start button and it started right away. It even comes with a battery charger. This will be the perfect back up power for us. It is a little louder than I had hoped but, we can get over that when the first outage happens and we have power in the house. It is connected to a manual transfer panel and the change from hydro to back up is very easy to accomplish. Come on winter storms!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works like it should I just bought this generator on the recommendation of my electrician. I bought it primarily for use as emergency backup for power outages. It was relatively easy to finish the assembly: foot, wheels, handle, and battery connections. The biggest issue I had with assembly was the weight of the generator. IT made it a little difficult to put the wheels on. Once assembled the next issue was getting the oil in. Be sure you have a funnel for this. The battery cables cross in front of the oil fill. The other issue is the location of the spark plug. If it ever needs to be replaced it is not in the most accessible location. After the electrician had wired the house to accept the generator we fired it up and it started on the first push of the button with the electric start. We hooked it up to the house and it ran my furnace, well-pump, fridge, and a few lights without a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built product! Just bought this generator yesterday for use as a backup power supply. This product is well built and will fit my needs perfectly. Assembled quickly using the included "Quick Start" guide, added oil and gas- hit the button and it started right up! Not looking forward to a power outage but happy to have this generator to keep everything running in my house if there is an outage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did what it was supposed to do We lost power for nearly three days when Sandy came through, but the Generac GP7500 kept us warm, the basement dry, and the food from spoiling. It's loud, droning, and obnoxious to run for such a long time, but one can't complain when you are one of two or three people on the street who have power. I have two complaints, however. Oil seems to disappear so you have to keep an on it. Otherwise it might cut out at midnight like mine did when the low oil shutoff kicked in. Keep in mind, this was a day and a half into a brand new unit with new oil in it. The other issue I have is that the electric start does not seem to work when the engine is warm; it only works when first starting it up cold. Otherwise, you're stuck with the backup pull start. If I could do it again, I would probably pony-up for a Honda, but this appears to be a decent unit for the budget minded that will run the essentials with plenty of juice to spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Proud owner Easy to assemble well explained instructions. You can see and feel you have a solid well built piece of equipment. Started without issue however was louder than anticipated or had hoped for. Peace of mind knowing that my family will be comfortable through power outages thanks to Generac
