Rated 5 out of 5 by This generator has everything in a portable I spent several days shopping both on-line and in local stores for a generator for both back-up electric for our home, and use in remote construction projects. This generac is the perfect fit for our needs. The only minor suggestions for improvement are: the unit comes with 30 weight oil and many users live in cold areas where this would not be the best choice.... and, the oil fill neck on the unit is a little difficult to access. My congrats, however, the generator started on the first pull, here in PA (temperature was in the high 20's). November 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by This had the most bang for the buck- it does everything a more expensive one would, except it's louder... This generator provides the most bang for the buck- it does everything a more expensive one would do, just louder... Which could be a factor. November 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Easy to set up, instructions clear. Easy to start and use for both home backup and portable power. Need about 4800 watts during power failures...no problem for this workhorse.....8 to 10 hours on one tank of gas. My wife easily fills and starts when I'm not home. November 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great right out of the box! I just purchased this generator a week ago so I'm just getting used to everything it has to offer. I'm a left leg amputee and was able to assemble everything myself as well as easily operate and monuver the unit. I filed it with oil and gas and_was trying too slowly engage the pull start to move the oil through the machine and it almost started. Very impressed only time will tell if it continues to Suprise me. November 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great features, easy to start. Easily portable, perfect back up generator for power outages. November 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy to use very sturdy lots of power my 11 year old child started it with the first pull.the handle and wheels makes it easy to maneuver and move around. November 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well made and plenty of power. Started right up and ran without any hestitation. Connected several items including a 240v heater and 14 amp electric saw at same time and no problems. The only thing I wished to be included is the wiring diagram for the 240v outlet. Had to go online and dowload spec sheet to get it. Anyone not an electrician might have trouble converting a 4 wire plug to a 3 wire outlet. October 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I purchase my Generac Generator on a Friday.I went fishing that night and fished all night. I hooked up two lights to me generator and ran it until daybreak.I think its a great product. October 26, 2014

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.

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.

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.
