Customer Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 74reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by handles whole house pro- whole house for me. 2.5 heat pump and any thing else I need in a power outage. Starts well; comes up to power right away. con- don't like the plug in underneath. My old 15,000 had it right out front. In my area we can expect an outage about every 2 months; sometimes lasting from 2 hrs. to 10 hrs. and even several days. Wouldn't be without my Generac.(P.S. I am a retired electrical employe) April 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value for price Great value for the price and size of this unit, starts and runs easily ample amperage to run most any residential need December 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Started Right Up & Reliable I got this one to replace my older model Generac which needs service- 15 years old and still running well. This new one is just as reliable and started up right away the first time I used it. I use it weekly to pump well water and also use it for my house as a back up power source (off-grid). I researched for months before deciding on this generator and it has been everything that I needed and expected. Works great and I highly recommend it! December 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by The GP17500E is an excellent value. This unit has more features than I expected ie: winter carb heating and an excellent variety of electrical connections that suit any purpose. I will be using it for a solar power system back-up. I have previously purchased a standby Generac (16kw) for our home and have been more than satisfied with it as well. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value Just purchased my first Generac, very happy with the quality. Loose power in our area, most people in our area have the automatic standby units with great reliability. We're selling soon so we went with the large portable one. December 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by For the price it is great This 17500 generac generator is ideal for our needs it has all the features I was looking for. And the price was within our budget. If you are looking for a powerful and economic generator this is the one to get November 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelievable performance and reliability! I've owned this generator since April 2013 and have used it to its limits with zero issues and 100% satisfaction on my part. We started construction on a new home 2 months (June 2013) after our purchase and due to our utility company's inability to bring power to our rural location until August, we were forced to use the GP17500E to supply power to all of our contractors. We put 200 plus hours on this baby throughout the concrete, framing, electrical and plumbing rough in, and getting about half the shingles installed. Big cost on Gasoline, but kept us on schedule and everyone working.It now serves as a whole home emergency backup power supply for virtually every circuit in my home through the 6380 Manual Transfer Switch. 2000 square foot home with a geothermal heat pump and 4 ton A/C, all lights, power outlets, appliances, hot water, entertainment system, computer. It's easy to operate and switch between Utility power and Generac. We are conservative on power usage during outages, but incredibly comfortable during our Kansas winters and summers!!!I will never be without one of these generators on hand and wouldn't even consider another brand. October 5, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by High Quality Generator Very impressed with the generator when it arrived. Was even more impressed when I unpacked, assembled, and fired it up. Runs like a charm. I will meet my needs 100% with ease. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing. :) September 17, 2015
