Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 448reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by What I would expect from a Generac This Generator was bought for the hurricane preparedness in Florida that we prep for. It always starts with the first pull and is as reliable as I would expect from such a great company. This Generator gives me peace of mind for me and my family when we need it. May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of power This product has more than enough power to run our main electrical items (fridge, freezer, water pump, lights, etc.) in our house. We purchased as a back-up system during power outages. The best feature is the peace-of-mind it brings my wife.....she no longer 'worries' about what to do without hydro. May 20, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Genny We've have had to use Genny a few times now. Always starts & other than a tight choke lever it's done everything it's supposed to do. Bumbed out that shortly after I got my generator Generac updated my model with weather proof outlet covers, a better handle design and electric start April 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent for home supplement Living out in a rural area, when we lose power in storms or fallen trees/limbs, it does take a while to get it restored. Now with the Generac generator we are ready to protect food in the freezer and fridge. We also have well water and will now be able to connect the well pump to keep water running in the house. With our electric chain saw we can now take the generator to the problem and deal with it instead of having to wait for power to return and hope we have a long enough cord to get out on the property. The purchase of this product has taken a big load off our shoulders and now do not dread the loss of power. We are ready to deal with situation. Thanks Generac!!! April 4, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by very well built unit. This generator is well built and has low noise,great for all around use. April 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This generator is well worth the money! This generator starts the first time every time I try to start it. I am a small frame woman and I find this generator also very easy to pull around versus other generators we have had and I don't have to depend on my husband to help me move it or to get it started. This generator is such a good generator and very appealing that someone cut a steel cable and stole my first one right out of the back of my truck in a restaurant parking lot and that is why I went back and bought another one to replace the one that the thief found irrestable. So not only do honest people appreciate the value of this generator so do dishonest people. March 31, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of power at a great price. I purchased the GP5500 to serve as a source of backup power primarily to keep my mother's O2 concentrater running instead of only having a limited amount of O2 tanks on reserve.It has enough power to run her unit, their fridge, TV and satellite as well as some lights.We will be looking into a transfer switch to make it a little easier to get everything running soon. Well almost everything. Also this will allow me to run my table saw in my shop instead of having to run a longer extention cord out to the shop I can just set it up outside it and I'm good to go. It'll run the saw, shop vac and a shop light. March 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just enough Use if for camping. What a lifesaver at times when you don't want to be around people and find a secluded spot March 29, 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?

Answer: 
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.
