Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems Solid So far i've run this generator for about 5 hours and it seems to be a solid built stable generator. I think if taken really good care of this generator can last for many years to come. I hooked it up to my house via transfer switch and it run all the lights tv and my salt water fish tank with no problem at all. March 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has been proven to be a reliable and economical. I have used this generator for emergency standby power during outages several times and it keeps the water well, refrigerators,lights, and television working.I have also used this generator for several outside construction projects using air compressors, drills, saws nail gun etc. performs well with steady reliable power. Would recommend this generator. I particularly like the electric start. With good normal maintenance I expect many years of reliable service. March 11, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Generac 5500 Portable Generator This is a top of the line generator for camping and fun. It is durable and has quality features like plug covers. You can't go wrong with this generator for camping it has it all and provides reliable power to boot. March 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great unit bought unit and ran for 24 hours so far with out any issues. Would recommend to anyone. March 8, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product for the money generator runs and starts great. great machine for all my needs home backuop and portable power. March 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great backup Unit was perfect for what we needed powered after a bad icestorm knocked power out. Easy to use and great value February 23, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by This was bought for house backup power for when the power company cant keep the power on We purchased this unit because the power in the south goes out and can stay out for over a week at a time easy.we bought the Generac GP5500 Generator because of the durability and the price. This model is the least you should buy for the house( for the watts). This unit came with the 25' cord that has four outlets and that's all we need and that's all it will run.I unpacked the unit, some small assembly required (easy enough) filled the oil and gas pulled the cord about 8 inches and it started with ease. " Now that's a Generac generator " it ran quit and smooth. Thank goodness the power came back on. the unit went to the shed for use later. well spent money on a insurance that we can keep the house going during a outage. (now the power will never go out) February 21, 2015

Answers

Answer: 
The GP Series portable generators are shipped from factory with SAE 30 non-synthetic oil. When choosing oil to utilize for a generator, the chart located in the Maintenance Section of your unit’s owner’s manual should be viewed as to what the coldest temperature will be experienced. The oil utilized for a cold temperature will be acceptable for use at warmer temperatures, but oil designated for warmer temperatures are not acceptable for use in colder temperatures. This is why a synthetic 5W-30 is the recommended oil for places with significant temperature changes, as it covers all temperature ranges. The appropriate intervals for oil changes and other maintenance items will be located in the owner’s manual in the Maintenance section as well.

Answer: 
Generac does not offer an electric start kit for that model, if you step it up to the 7500 watt model it will come with an electric start option. The smallest one that we offer with an electric start will be Grainger item # 6FDL0.

The tank was filled to the top past the line. Experiencing shutdown after running for about ten minutes.

Choke ok, motor ok, silver start switch facing in upright position also. Does filling the tank past the fuel line have anything to do with it.

We tested it yesterday with less than half a tank and it ran beautifully.

Does the generator need to be out of the rain?

This generator was designed to work at peak performance with regular unleaded gas. The fuel level in the gas tank should have no impact on performance until the tank is empty.
