Questions & Answers

What related items woukd i need with this?

Asked by: Ned
If you plan to hook it to your home (emergency back up for furnace and other items), you will need a 30 amp power cord. Your electrician will run a line from your breaker box to an outside connection. There are various lengths available to go from the building to the generator.

The generator is currently running two refrigerators. Will it handle a microwave as well or do I disconnect the two re.

Asked by: Fig
Hi, Fig- Thanks for the question. It will all depend on how much wattage you have left to use, and how much wattage your microwave requires. If you total up your appliances running wattage requirements and it's 5500 or less, it should be fine. We hope this helps!

RYOBI 5,500 Running Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 479.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from runs my whole rv This thing so far has been awesome. It was 97 degrees and all i had was 104 volts, which is not enough to run my whole rv with the ac running, making it 125 degrees inside the rv with the sun baking down. Went and got this at home depot brought it back and assembled, and started it. This thing ran my whole rv-(13500 btu AC, 2 tvs, fan, lights, 2 fridge/freezers, and microvave, plus other misc devices/chargers) and never went below 119.7 volts. Rv was a crisp 65 degrees, and AC was cycling as it should. The genny never even batted an eye. It was about 10 ft from rv and was bairly noticable to us or our 2 year old noise wise. Ran it for about 10-15 hrs, no issues so far. Uses about .5 gal of fuel per hour. Has 5 gallon tank. I would reccomend to anyone. Side note - i was plugged into the 120/240 volt 30 amp recepticle with a an adapter to go from 240 twist 30 amp to 120 3 prong 30 amp. So for $600, not a bad deal. Also home depot staff was very nice and easy to deal with.

I bought this generator online after being without power for 4 days due to a freak wind storm in the middle of an Oklahoma summer. I picked it up in store. Easy, convenient and safer than dealing with possible porch pirates. Brought it home, put the wheels and bumpers on (15 min.) and filled it with oil and gas. I read all the reviews before I purchased it and figured it was a fifty fifty chance it would start on the first try. With much anticipation I flipped the switch to on and gave it a pull. I'll be dammed, it started right up and ran without a sputter. I plugged in a few things to hear if there was a drag on the power and it sounded fine. I haven't used it in a power outage yet so I can't comment on how it performs over days of use but so far I'm very pleased. As a 50 yr old female, it was easy to assemble and it's easy to move around.

I bought this for hurricane Irma in 2017, but I never ended up needing it. It sat until August 2019, when Dorian almost hit. This is when I got serious about the generator. PS don't let your generator sit untouched for two years - I had to change the oil, flush the gas tank and carb, and it was ready to go. I installed a 30 amp twist lock plug to my home breaker box (along with a required interlock device for $35.00). I did it myself within code for $10.00 for the breaker, $15.00 for conduit and wire, $35.00 for the plug, and about $35.00 for the interlock device. Add another $50.00 or so for the extension cord. I tested this afternoon - turned off the main breaker (which turns on the generator 30amp, 240v breaker). Turned off the water heater, central AC, and kitchen range. I was able to power at least 5-7 LED house lights, two TV's, two Apple TV's, a PC with two monitors, a refrigerator, portable AC, two ceiling fans, and other misc small devices. This generator didn't even hiccup under all this load. I can't attest to it's longevity, as I've only used it for this test. I strongly suggest home owners get a generator of some type. If anything, to power their refrigerator and necessities. This generator could power the water heater. I'd just have to power down some other stuff as to not overload it. Same goes for microwave and coffee maker. As of now, I think this is a great generator that I hope I only have to use during my new bi-annual testing and maintaining.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's as good as advertised I bought this for the upcoming hurricane season (Dorian) just in case Mother Nature came my way. Although I am glad she did not, this generator was a brilliant purchase and works just as advertised. I am in the middle of a house paint project, so it is nice to have a reliable mobile power station to wheel around as needed. Thanks Ryobi.. this fits nicely into the already growing family of power tools you supply!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase Easy start. Fuel Tank is very big and provide very long hours of continuous power. I had 2 refrigerators, sump pump and interior lights on at the same time with no interruption in power. Having wheels on this and long handle makes it easy to move this unit around. Only issue is with the noise it makes when running. It’s very loud but it’s appears to be normal for these types of gas powered generators [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value Purchased for emergency power outage after storms this summer. Assembled easily, started quickly, saved hundreds of dollars of frozen and fresh food and kept sump pumps running. Also used to power outdoor running event, including start/finish line, registration tables/computers, live band and the generator performed flawlessly 8 hours on one fill. Glad we bought it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My only complant was its mobility, so I purchased a moving dolly and placed it under the frame, it's rated for a load of one thousand lbs and has casters that rotate 360 degrees. However it's the best generator I've owned to date' [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The generator wa easy to assemble, just had to put on the feet and the wheels. Instructions were easily understood. Did not give fie stars because I have not used the generator.
