What a wonderful find – a generator powered by Generac, the best at building power units for RVs and houses needing electricity! We suggest that you keep the large parts-assembly drawings that are printed on the outside of the shipping box; those are clearer than the drawings inside the instruction booklet. Weighing almost 200 pounds, we assumed that it would be difficult to connect the wheels and leg supports, but it was simple to tip the POWERMATE on its edge to do so. Although crescent wrenches are included, we found that using #10 and #13 socket wrenches made assembling the wheels and handle much easier. It is very comforting to know that reliable power will be available when the next hurricane hits our town!

High quality generator; this generator provides all the power I need to run my tools (like my compact table saw) from a work place other than my garage. Other generators I have used struggled to keep up, but this PM7500 is a beast! The fact it has a 30 amp 120V/240V connection allows me to use it with my RV and power tools easily and provides plenty of power. Having a CO sensor is nice, but I do not expect to use it indoors unless absolutely necessary (which I never anticipate having to do). The fact that this is made by Generac (a name I trust for generators) give me the peace of mind that it will last. It is big (about 30” by 26” by 25” tall) and very heavy (almost 200 lbs) making it not very portable, but the wheels make it easy to transport around the garage and yard. Having four 20 amp 120V outlets is also nice. It is extremely simple to operate; started on the second try. The power dial feature is very nice; pretty much anyone can start it easily. I am so confident in the reliability of this generator I am planning to have someone come in and look into wiring up an emergency bypass for my house in case of power loss. I highly recommend this; I expect to get many years of quality use out of it. This gets five stars across the board from me!

This home, emergency use generator has enough power to get you through loss of power from hurricanes, or other storms and for job site use. It is loaded with features that make it user friendly. It has 4 120V outlets protected by two 20 amp breakers and one 220 4 prong locking outlet protected by a 25 amp breaker. All of the outlets have rubber, tight fitting and water resistant covers that seal out dust and moisture. There is also an hour meter to keep track of the use hours so that maintenance can be scheduled as needed. There is a fuel gauge on the fuel tank to alert you when refueling needed without removing the filler knob. Below the hours use meter there is a large red knob to adjust for cold starts. The unit has a folding handle that allows for east movement, but stows compactly within the profile of the generator. The generator is powered by a General 420 cc, OHV motor.

I got the generator set it up and noticed mine did not come with CO-Sense, also i was hoping it was at least 30amp plug, but it only comes with 20amp twist lock , ive seen smaller generators wire higher amp connection. So it is lacking power options. Very heavy , easy assemble i do like the large tank capacity. Started first on the first pull. I tested a large miter saw and it didn't hesitate to run it

QUALITY! DURABLE! POWER! Powermate delivers a really nice generator that can no doubt power my house essentials easily. It comes with a CO sensor which really gives me a little peace of mind. It will never be used indoors on my end but its still nice to have. I love that it comes with tough wheels and a handle to make transporting it easier. Keep in mind its a a big generator so its 170lbs heavy. However, it provides plenty of power and runs about 14 hours. I love that this generator is straight forward. There is nothing fancy or complicated about it which is exactly what I wanted and needed. The less bells and whistles the more durable it will be in my opinion. The engineering and the quality of materials is built to make this beast last! Good job Powermate... You get my "Atta-Boy!" Award for this one! Recommended!

Runs great
Our old generator was a real workout to get started, but this one is easy to start and runs well. It was the right size for our needs and the CO sensor was important.
