Quality Control
I ordered one of these just prior to the 50% price increase. When I received it (late) I found the outer shroud didn't fit properly and left a big gap between panels. If a glaring and very obvious fault is on the outside, what about the lack of quality on the inside? I returned it and tried to pick up the (delayed again) replacement today. Two trips to a store for a total of 220 miles and I still don't have a generator because we opened the box right there and the replacement fit was worse than the original. If generac doesn't take care of quality in one model, I will never trust anything of theirs. They sent the manufacturing to china - it can stay in china. BTW - I called generac and they offered nothing in the way of help.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
The GP3000I generator is one of the nicest generator I have owned. I have had this generator for about 6 months now but have never had a reason to run it or even add the oil. Well that all changed with some weather we have had in the mid-west last week. My power when out and the first thing I did was grab my GP3000I. I added the supplied oil and added gas and it started on the first pull. Talk about quit, it is super quit running. I would have no problem running this generator for hours outside my house and I'm sure it wouldn't even bother anyone. My power was out a couple hours and I need to run my sump pump so I didn't destroy my finished basement. This generator is so easy to set-up, start and just in general easy to use. Great product and I'm sure it will be used here with the crazy weather we have here in the mid-west.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This generator works very well and is super quiet. It starts easily and nicely as long as you have the knob turned to choke, for some reason it will not start on the run setting even when fully warmed up. It is very quiet, my decibel meter put it at about the same decibels as a popular red 2000 watt generator, but my ears say that it is a little quieter. It has a 30 amp 125 vac plug which is nice in that it keeps the cords from falling out of the generator, it also has (2) standard 125 vac plugs and (2) USB plugs. I think the USB plugs are kind of a waste as most of the things you would use with them you don't want to leave outside to charge, I would have preferred that it had a 12 volt dc charging port for batteries. It also has parallel ports to hook it up to second Generac GP3000i generator. It also has a economy switch which slows and quiets the generator at no or low load idle. There are 2 circuit breakers, one for the parallel connection and one for the 30 amp plug. Also it has 3 lights one for "ready" one for "overload" and one "low oil". It is nice that it comes with everything you need to fire it up (except gas) it has 20 oz bottle of oil, a very nice funnel, a spark plug wrench and a phillips screwdriver. To start it you just turn the knob to "choke" and pull the cord, then quickly turn the knob to run. It has started every time hot or cold on the first pull. (note: I am at 5000 ft). I purposely overloaded it, when you reach a minor overload the overload light will blink slowly, and as you put more of an overload on it, it will blink faster and faster till it stays solid red. It is supposed to kick out the generator, but let the motor keep running when you reach too much of an overload, I loaded it down to 79 vac and it never kicked out, which I didn't like, as the low voltage could damage some equipment. It seemed to run very close to its rated running output of 2300 watts, The manual says that for every 1000 ft in elevation output will drop about 3.5% and about 1% for every 10 degrees over 60 degrees Fahrenheit. The dimensions are about 19" tall, 13" wide and 22" long, and I measured the weight with gas and oil at 66 lbs. To access the spark plug you just open a little door, to access the air filter you have to remove 4 screws on the side cover and one screw on the air filter cover, and to access the spark arrestor for cleaning you remove 4 screws on the rear cover and then 2 on the spark arrestor. It would have been nice if it had some on-board storage for the tools. I really do like this generator it is super quiet and does just exactly what it is supposed to do with basically no muss or fuss.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Extremely easy to setup initially and operate. Easy to follow instructions. Unit comes with the 1 quart of 4 cycle SAE 30 oil and funnel to fill the oil well. You need only to add the regular gasoline and it was ready to start. Very easy to do that as well. A simple 3-way switch Start/Run/Stop “choke”. Two pulls and it started right away. Initially smelled a little but after a few minutes that dissipated and the engine purred like a kitten. Extremely quiet and works perfectly. This unit is a standby for power outages and camping trips that we take every now and again to fish. It is about 50 pounds but has a very convenient carry handle on the top of the unit. It is ready for an RV hookup which I do not have but has 2 -110volt outlets and 2 USB outlets for your smartphones and computers etc. 3000 watts. It also has the technology to connect a second inverter to produce twice the output put I do not have that but it is nice if down the line I choose to get a second unit.

1/2 Pull First Start - Incredibly Quiet

Great generator - poor welds on wheel brackets
Customer review from generac.com logo
Opened the box to a brand new one thousand dollar generator. Everything looked great. Not a blemish anywhere. Started assembly and all is well. Wheels installed no problem. Handle, added oil, connected battery, gassed up, started and ran beautiful; again no problem. First time moving on wheels; problem. Both wheel brackets broke free from all but one weld. Impossible to move more than six inches without backside wheel pigeon toeing into the muffler. Hurricane Delta was fast approaching to my area of south Louisiana so I wasn’t about to return a good running generator. I would tough-out the inconvenience and deal with it after the storm. I wasn’t about to return the 200 pound unit and spend the time assembly another. The generator turned into a thousand dollar stand-by insurance policy. I’m otherwise happy for making the purchase. I’m not the first one to experience the weld breaks after reading reviews. Serious consideration for a Generac whole house standby generator purchase is now in jeopardy unless my complete satisfaction with warranty claim is made.
