      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...

      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.

          Ordered my Generac GP17500E after researching on-line and talking with friends who have Generac generators. To my surprise, it was ready for delivery in 1 day. Uncrated and assembled it in about 2 hours (instructions were good but could be more user friendly) and was impressed with the quality of construction. The supplied oil, spare filter, spark plug, etc., were added value. Very pleased with this generator and have recommended Generac to family and friends.

                  I give this 17500E a 5 star rating. The only con I have is the portability. I have to move the gen. around. I mounted a heavy duty caster with brake the second day I owned it , this totally changed the portability, I can move it around with one hand. Also I believe the handle needs to be adjustable so you don't have to do a shoulder lift to get it rolling.

                      I found the unit to be well made. As big as it was, it is easier to move than I thought it would be. Well balanced. All features are well marked. I purchased the unit for power outage during severe weather. This unit replaces a smaller unit that could not handle all of our needs. The investment will be worth it when we lose power again out here in the country.

                          We use our generator for special events and for backup purposes, not very noisy for its size/power, fuel efficient and very reliable, I would highly recommend the GP17500E!
