I read a review on a Generac 7,500 watt generator where the home owner connected his generator to a transfer switch and powered his whole house for the most part. Can this generator do that?
Asked by: Wondering
I don’t know. I use it as a backup if electricity goes out. Don’t have a transfer box. I love the generator.

Can this generator be run in the rain?

Asked by: Neelbilly
I have run mine in the rain and snow just fine. It will probably decrease the life of the generator slightly. I’m not sure if it says its ok to run in the rain in the manual but it seems to work fine.

This says it has a 240 V outlet plug - but is the 240 a 30 amp?

Generac 8,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 158.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Generator Purchased 2 GP 8000 Watt portable generators for back up power in case of a power failure at the campsite that we operate. We had a power failure a couple of weeks ago, and staff hooked up one generator at the beach washroom/canteen and one at the main washroom with showers in the campground. Both Generac generators performed flawlessly in running both facilities which have well pumps, sewage pumps as well as a fridge and freezers in the canteen. I highly recommend this generator for temporary power supply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Beast!! Our generator was purchased in the event of a power outage. We have had our house wired to accept gen power by an electrician. Our electrician was SO impressed with our generator. He even mentioned it was robust enough to power our whole 2400 sq.ft. house, except for the AC. During our testing, the machine started up within 1 second, made less noise than we would have thought for its size and power. The controls are easy to use and understand (I am a novice at this) and maneuvering this beast was actually pleasant. Sturdy contruction and high quality gives you an excellent feeling that this can handle high demands. During our testing, it performed perfectly and did power the entire house with ease (45% total load with EVERY light, fan, appliance turned on). If I could give it 6stars, I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Power for a Compact Unit I bought this unit to replace a larger generator two years ago. It went through on hurricane like a champ. One half of my home was easily powered (which was more than enough, 1 AC 3 yard pumps, misc. 20 A breakers). The unit stores easily when not in use and is easy to move to hook up the transfer switch. I recently had a bad battery and the folks at Generac are replacing it. What a pleasant surprise and a guarantee that I will buy another Generac when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product Our power has been out for the last 3 days from hurricane dorian, this generator has worked great. We switched our house over to the Generac 8000W generator as soon as we lost power. Fired up AC, some lights, a few receptacles and refrigerator, WORKS GREAT and has worked for us on a tank of gas for 17hrs. HOT HUMID days with no power, glad we have our Generac generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Generator has a lot of power but.... I would definitely buy this generator again for its power output. Unfortunately when I bought it from Home Depot I had to pay $200 more than this advertised price, so grab it at this price! I live up in a fully wooded mountain area, This generator can run my whole 3 story cabin When we loose power, except for the Electric stove, and electric hot water heater. ( yes it runs the well pump too, and that's most important). The only problem I had with it is it not returning to idle after all the loads been removed from it. But for my use there's always some load on it. It has a good size gas tank and always gets us thru the typical power outage of 4-5hrs. Oh, AND IT ALWAYs STARTs!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware it could be delivered with a defective battery I purchased a GP8000E and paid extra for the electric start. I started it when it first arrived to ensure all was OK. It started right up. 8 weeks later I went to exercise it and the electric start would not work. I took it to a factory authorized service center where they discovered the battery was defective. It would not charge nor hold a charge. They replaced it and it started immediately and now runs fine. THE PROBLEM....This generator cost over a thousand dollars, is brand new with 12 minutes run time on it, YES 12 MINUTES. The generator was delivered to me with that defective battery and Generac WILL NOT COVER IT UNDER WARRANTY!! I cannot say enough good about ELECTRIC GENERATORS DIRECT which is who I purchased it from as they are a Generac Distributor. They stepped up BIG TIME once they were told what happened and THEY took care of this repair. Fabulous customer understanding and support by ELECTRIC GENERATORS DIRECT. Generac..not so much. This is a major purchase for most. Hope it runs and lasts longer than the factory supplied battery!

Our Generator (GP6500) A Very Similar Model has FAILED with only 39 hours on the clock and this company will not help us because it is outside of the two year warranty period. We just had a five day power outage here in Vermont and it failed on the second day. The repair shop says its sees a lot of failures from this model and they must have a factory defect. BEWARE of GENRAC and its products. They would not even let us speak to the Warranty Dept. At 39 hours It is not even half way due for its first recommended service. UPDATE: Basically it is just junk, The repair shop says that the rocker arm came off which in turn damaged the valve, head, pushrod and possibly more.
