      Ran generator for approx. 50 hrs. straight, except for re-fueling, during Hurricane Irene. It provided reliable power and saved us quite a bit of money by not having to replace food. Also provided comfort as it powered my central air conditioning with no trouble. Easy to set up and start. Acceptable noise level for size of unit. Does like gas!

      I purchased this unit (GP17500E) for home backup power for my CT home. I have been trying to get a dealer / service rep to assemble the unit at my house - for a fee- and spare me the effort of having to lift a 400 pound unit to assemble the wheel kit (I have a bad back)....So far all the service reps in CT have turned me down. One told me they are not taking any more portables...Just be aware that if you purchase this product you'll be on your own trying to assemble it...

      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.

      Great Generator

      By Martinimaster

      from Cape Coral

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable 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.

      Impressive machine

      By Bill

      from Finksburg

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      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.

      GP17500E

      By Airwolf

      from Covington Twp

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      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.

      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.

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      Great machine for the price, I have this unit set up to feed my house and garage in the event of a power outage. Easy to set up and enough power to do all that I need, rain, snow sleet or shine.

      Good basic generator, lacks some features, loud!

      By Mikey

      from Dyersburg

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      There is no voltmeter on the generator to indicate the generator is running at the correct speed to make the rated voltages. The generator is way too loud! It is so loud two people can't understand a word being said if you are very close to it. Muffler seems to be too small for the noise produced. The 50 amp receptacle is on the bottom of the control box. This is a bad place to be because the male plug for it tries to vibrate out. The little wire thingy that is supposed to hold the plug in is a joke because it doesn't fit any plugs I've seen. It needs a re-design.

      Very Impressed - A well manufactured machine

      By teverk

      from Mansfield

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      I just purchased the GP17500E, Assembly was straight forward (A 2 man job). The over all design of the generator was well thought out, such as the oil fill area is large enough to fill directly, no funnel needed, also the oil drain is a hose, just unscrew the cap and you are draining the oil, couldn't be easier. Customer Support was very knowledgeable and get this, open 24hrs 7 days a week, I thought my company only did that.. If you order on line just be aware on the shipping method, Box Truck means a 52 foot semi trailer which was to heavy to go up your drive way, I grabbed my neighbor who had a pickup truck, unloaded on to the pick up and brought to the house. It all worked out. The generator started right up.
