      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...

      Plenty of power reserve.

      By David

      from Sparrow Bush

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      This is a great unit with more than enough power for my home. The only thing it needs is a quieter muffler system.

      Excellent generator.

      By ezetracey

      from Poultney

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      This generator came well crated and delivered on time. I was impressed with the ease of start up and was amazed at the included maintenance kit. (extra spark plugs, plug wrench, primary and secondary air filter, oil filter). I have not had a chance to power the entire house with the unit but it starts easily and runs strong. Although I do not look forward to a lengthy power outage (which has been more frequent lately in my rural setting) I feel much more at ease having a well built machine as a back up.

      Workhorse of a Generator!

      By Jan1964

      from Suffolk

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      Can't wait for the power to go out. This generator will definitely get us through the storm! Our electrician said that we could probably sell power to the neighbors with this one! LOL Worth the investment.

      I purchased the Generac GP17500 portable generator and the 6335 manual transfer switch. No problem with the instillation. The setup works great. I would highly recommend this equipment to my frinds

      BIG....REALLY BIG

      By Bigbear8807

      from LaGrange

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      This generator arrived in perfect condition. Great packaging and easy to unpack. Assembly of the handle, wheels and rear prop are required. Also the battery hook up and adding oil. Caution (I had to drain some because I rushed the fill and by the time it all settled it was over the fill line) Take your time. There is a replacement air filter and pre-filter as well as a new oil filter provided. Break in period of 30 hours. I have yet to run it but it is really well put together and I will write another review after the break in period. The recommendation is to run the unit for one hour every 30 days. This will keep it charged and ready to go. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants a whole house generator as it is the largest wattage available in a protable and I don't have propane/lp in my neighborhood. The permanent gas or diesel units of this size are much more expensive.

      Good value but the battery for the electric start is an issue

      By joer

      from chatham

      Comments about Generac GP Series 17500 Watts Portable Generator:

      Good value for the money but have had problems keeping the battery charged - without the battery at full power you cannot start the engine.
