I bought this generator after Hurricane Irene (2 days after). I had lost electricity for 16 hours. Of course, the sump pump systems in the basement were unable to run and as I live in a low area, the basement flooded & my furnace burner was underwater as well. It topped out at 9" of water in the basement. Power was restored. The sump pumps emptied out the basement. $500 later the furnace was repaired & running when the power went out for the 2nd time. Water was still pouring into the basement. Ran out to Agway & bought this generator. Had it assembled, up & running before the water reached the furnace (just barely). I agree with the previous reviewer on the poor instructions & lack of information in the manual. I might add that I still haven't found the spark plug, as that isn't included in the diagram, although when to clean & change it is! Also, the gas gauge doesn't work. I would have returned it, but being in bind, with water rising...the gas gauge didn't seem all that important. It started on the 2nd pull & had the water pumped out in no time. I have to say that is a great machine & was simple enough to assemble & start once you fought your way through the poor diagram & instructions. Easy enough for a 57yr.old woman who has never run a generator to put together, start & run. I would definitely recommend it. Manual needs improvement!!

Let's just say the generac recommended repair facility was not surprised when I brought it in with a leak between the carborator and engine. A common trend regardless of maintenance performed. Have had for 9 months and it is strong and powered 2 fridges, a portable AC unit, sat TV and LED TV, and a fan with no trouble. Ran it for 12 hours and then rested for 2 hours. Fuel tank worked great for sustaining the endurance of 12 hours under the load once the fridges caught up to maintaining temps vice cooling. I ran once a month and it failed this June after testing it again. Started with no problems on one pull every time. Just started it to check before fully filling gas and upon return and filling to capacity on fuel it leaked at a cup every 60 seconds. UNSAT. Being fixed now. Don't know any other generators out there but satisfied that it is a good system that my wife can operate since it starts with one pull of the string. Critical on east coast. Total of 10 days without power during the summer months makes like interesting. Best of luck.

Just put it together!

By 

from Antioch

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

Great machine. Starts fast and does what it is designed to do. One little issue- the pull starter could be moved a little so it's not so close to the handle when starting. Haven't needed it in an emergency yet, but expecting it to provide the power I need when I need it!

The GP5500 started up on the first pull.

By 

from Missouri City

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

The cover for the air breather was cracked when I opened the box, but Customer Service shipped me a new one. Support was great. The unit started on the first pull. I have only used it once. It ran my compressor with no problem.

I purchased this portable generator to avoid disaster if electricity is not available for my fridge and freezer. Well packaged, simple, easy assembly and started on first pull. Bring on the bad weather, we are ready.

What I would expect from a Generac

By 

from Crestview

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

This Generator was bought for the hurricane preparedness in Florida that we prep for. It always starts with the first pull and is as reliable as I would expect from such a great company. This Generator gives me peace of mind for me and my family when we need it.

Lots of power

By 

from waterloo

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

This product has more than enough power to run our main electrical items (fridge, freezer, water pump, lights, etc.) in our house. We purchased as a back-up system during power outages. The best feature is the peace-of-mind it brings my wife.....she no longer 'worries' about what to do without hydro.

Genny

By 

from Boston

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

We've have had to use Genny a few times now. Always starts & other than a tight choke lever it's done everything it's supposed to do. Bumbed out that shortly after I got my generator Generac updated my model with weather proof outlet covers, a better handle design and electric start

Excellent for home supplement

By 

from Gloucester

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

Living out in a rural area, when we lose power in storms or fallen trees/limbs, it does take a while to get it restored. Now with the Generac generator we are ready to protect food in the freezer and fridge. We also have well water and will now be able to connect the well pump to keep water running in the house. With our electric chain saw we can now take the generator to the problem and deal with it instead of having to wait for power to return and hope we have a long enough cord to get out on the property. The purchase of this product has taken a big load off our shoulders and now do not dread the loss of power. We are ready to deal with situation. Thanks Generac!!!

This generator is well worth the money!

By 

from etna

Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

This generator starts the first time every time I try to start it. I am a small frame woman and I find this generator also very easy to pull around versus other generators we have had and I don't have to depend on my husband to help me move it or to get it started. This generator is such a good generator and very appealing that someone cut a steel cable and stole my first one right out of the back of my truck in a restaurant parking lot and that is why I went back and bought another one to replace the one that the thief found irrestable. So not only do honest people appreciate the value of this generator so do dishonest people.
