Simpson 5,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Houston is hurricane prone and after living through Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey, being out... Houston is hurricane prone and after living through Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey, being out of power for days on end, I have learned that a generator was a must to keep the essential appliances/devices going. I got this for residential back-up use/emergency power. Assembly was easy … just attach the handle and wheels, it only takes about 15 minutes if not less. It is heavy though (about 75lbs), so you may need help with lifting it. Tools for assembly (wrench) and oil are included in the box. Handle folds away for easy storage. Large wheels allow for easy maneuvering of the unit. Noise output is comparable for large units such as this. I'm very happy with this generator. Good price, great features! I highly recommend this item!

The Simpson generator is shipped in a large cardboard box almost fully assembled. I was able to remove it from the box by myself but I suggest getting a friend to help. There are only four steps that need to be done before you can run the generator. Mount the cross-member support bracket, place the wheels on the frame, fill the crankcase with oil, and pour in some gasoline. There is a small discrepancy with the instructions on how to mount the wheels. The directions have slip washers for both sides of the wheels but there is only enough for one side in the package. I decided to place them on the inner surface between the wheel and the frame. I had to pull the starting cord about 20 times before the engine started. I believe this was because it was the first time it had been run and the fuel had to flow into the carburetor bowl. Once it started the engine ran smoothly. This product does not idle down and runs at one speed while it is operating. I have not run it long enough to tell how long one tank will last. All of the controls are well labeled and easy to operate. The hour-meter is a nice thing to have for maintenance intervals. The only thing I feel is lacking is a governor that would manage the engine speed based on electrical load. I suppose the addition of that kind of controls would make the product more expensive and to keep costs lower they have decided to eliminate that. They should also offer a conversion kit or adapter to allow use of propane like so many other manufacturers are doing.

With all the extreme weather in the country these days, protecting your home and family from power outages is a simple as getting a Generator for backup power and this POWERSHOT 5500 Gasoline Portable Generator by SIMPSON is all the power you need !! This is one solid built, heavy duty steel frame Generator with 4 110 outlet plugs and a 220 outlet, you get enough ports to run the important things in your home and with the no flat large tires you can roll it right where you want it and with the collapsing handle it stores away until you need it again !! I rolled it into the back yard to cut a tree down yesterday, so much easer than a long cord deep in the yard, it's a heavy Generator, but so easy to roll where you need it and it's not just for an emergency, take this baby camping or tailgating, wherever you need power this POWERSHOT will do the job !! I'm adding a Generator panel to the house with designated bracers so when the power goes out I just flip the switch and plug in the generator into the outside plug and I have power inside without running cords !! SIMPSON has a full line of Generators to handle your power needs, Get one Today so your ready for whatever comes !!

The Simpson gasoline powered portable generator fired right up without a problem right out of the box. It is a bit noisy but it's to be expected from a generator. I filled it with a little over a gallon of ethanol free gasoline, because I read somewhere that the ethanol will eat away at the plastic or rubber components if left in the lines for awhile. I added a fuel stabilizer to the gasoline before filling. I ran the generator 30 minutes every 3 weeks and turn off the fuel line and let it run dry. I don't recommend filling up the tank and let the generator sit because even with a fuel stabilizer the fuel will go bad after awhile.

It is well decaled/labeled with illustrated instructions. It has a relatively small footprint (about 2’x3’). The minor assembly required (wheels and base stand) is fairly easy, though you might need help lifting. The entire unit is well balanced and easy to move/wheel around. It also has very useful features, such as Illustrated decals, run hours clock, low oil auto shut off, fuel gage, and uses standard 10w30 oil. After adding oil (supplied) and gasoline, a single pull started the generator and I tested each outlet—all of which worked. I got this for residential backup use (great peace of mind), but it seems rugged enough for daily use (by contractors for instance).

The generator comes pretty well completely assembled except for the wheels and the stationary stand. Installation of these parts takes about 10 minutes. The installation instructions show a few more washers than are included but not a problem to exclude them. I filled the generator with gas, set the on/off switch, the gas control and the choke. The generator fired up on the first pull. The volume was at about 105dB, a little over the 97dB stated on the specs. I tested all outlets with a voltmeter and they all held a consistent 119.2v. I've had generators that fluctuated as much as 10 volts up and down while running. Not a bad generator, a bit pricey but has good features.

This was larger than I thought it would be when it arrived. My plan was to have this ready for hurricane season. Fortunately we have not had one hit us here this year. Putting the tires and the handle on the generator was a piece of cake. The tools provided with the generator were all we needed to get it set up. It comes with the oil needed and all I had to provide was gasoline. It is a little noisy, but for the power it provides and sense of security, it is a fair trade. My plan is to make a permanent place for the generator that is out of the weather and off the ground and have a box built that has ventilation and a bit of sound proofing.

I hooked it up to several devices and it supplied sufficient power to run them all simultaneously. This as a quality generator. It started quickly ( two Pulls) and ran flawlessly. Noise is average for the size of generator. Great if your working where no electricity is available, you can run several power tools. It comes with oil, tires and stand which are easily installed, ( a couple of minutes) and a wrench is supplied. Also has a handle that folds out of the way. It has a 120/240 volt, 30 amp connector and four 120 v, 20 amp outlets. Plenty of power. This is a must for supplying emergency power.
