Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Generator Easy to put together. Runs my entire house at normal use. I even have a four ton and a two ton a/c unit. July 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good value but the battery for the electric start is an issue Good value for the money but have had problems keeping the battery charged - without the battery at full power you cannot start the engine. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality bargain This Generator is so well made and is a quality product . You can't get a better generator for the price. June 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by what a beast !!!!! this will power everything in the house!!!! combined with a manual transfer switch this is THE way to go!!!it has great balance and easy to move around thought about a stand by system but I can other jobs with this aswell June 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Generator Generator was delivered on time and I was able to assemble it by myself in spite of it's 400lbs with little trouble. Generator started right up and ran very smoothly. My only complaint was that the bracket that holds the 50 amp cable in does not fit the Generac cable. Without holding the cable in, it will vibrate out. I removed the bracket and was able to secure the plug with cable ties. An easy fix but one that shouldn't have to be done considering how well the rest of the machine is constructed. June 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressive machine This thing is a beast. I connected to a manual transfer switch with current monitors to watch and balance the connected load. I have run a few tests but haven't had a true outage yet to put it to the test. V-twin 992cc engine runs great and starts easily with the electric start.I did connect a battery tender to trickle charge/monitor the battery.Other than that it comes with everything including a spare tune up kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GP17500E Generator does a great job. I owned one for many many years. I live in the country.We have very hard winters and that means power outages. The outages usually last many many hours.The Generac 17500 provides me peace of mind in a power outage. I don't have too worry about frozen pipes, heat, lights or food going too waste. I wouldn't be without my Generac. My original 17500 is getting old and this new one is the replacement/backup. April 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit, nothing but pure power This unit is even better than I thought it would be. It has the ability to power everything in the house with power to spare. March 14, 2014

Generac’s GP17500E portable generator does not have a gas tank supply hose, as the tank is already installed. Our GP Series portable generators are manufactured for use with gasoline only. As stated in the “Operation” Section of the product’s Owner’s manual, the gasoline should not contain more than 10% ethanol, nor should any special additives be utilized for fueling purposes. Also, it is important to never fill the fuel tank with E85 or a mixture of oil and gasoline. If you are interested in a portable generator that can operate on Liquid Propane, we would recommend considering our LP Series generators. Also, please note that at this time, Generac does not offer any accessories or conversion kits for its portable generators to run on natural gas. We also do not recommend such a conversion, for safety and performance reasons. If you would prefer a natural gas generator, we recommend our Guardian Series automatic home backup generator. These units can run on your home's existing natural gas fuel supply or propane tank, connect directly to your home's electrical system, and automatically turn on and off, in the event of a power outage.
Please contact Generac directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722), For further information regarding the specifications and/or requirements of our manufactured generators.
