Comments about Generac GP Series 5kW Portable Generator:

Competively priced with other sellers. [...] Haven't started it or used it since purchased-no need. It is oiled and ready to go. Easy to assemble alone. product line is highly regarded in reviews. Has a two-year warranty rather than one year.
