      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.

      Purchased this during one of our recent power outages. Brought it home and had running it 30 minutes! It is incredibly simple to use - my wife worked through the operating sequence with no problems (including the pull start). This one stays up at the house!

      Seems Solid

      Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

      So far i've run this generator for about 5 hours and it seems to be a solid built stable generator. I think if taken really good care of this generator can last for many years to come. I hooked it up to my house via transfer switch and it run all the lights tv and my salt water fish tank with no problem at all.

      Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

      I have used this generator for emergency standby power during outages several times and it keeps the water well, refrigerators,lights, and television working. I have also used this generator for several outside construction projects using air compressors, drills, saws nail gun etc. performs well with steady reliable power. Would recommend this generator. I particularly like the electric start. With good normal maintenance I expect many years of reliable service.

      This was bought for house backup power for when the power company cant keep the power on

      By 

      from Maryville

      Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

      We purchased this unit because the power in the south goes out and can stay out for over a week at a time easy. we bought the Generac GP5500 Generator because of the durability and the price. This model is the least you should buy for the house( for the watts). This unit came with the 25' cord that has four outlets and that's all we need and that's all it will run. I unpacked the unit, some small assembly required (easy enough) filled the oil and gas pulled the cord about 8 inches and it started with ease. " Now that's a Generac generator " it ran quit and smooth. Thank goodness the power came back on. the unit went to the shed for use later. well spent money on a insurance that we can keep the house going during a outage. (now the power will never go out)

      Good value for what it does

      By 

      from Friendsville

      Comments about Generac GP Series 5.5kW Portable Generator:

      We purchased this generator, not knowing how long our power would be out following an ice storm in our area. By the time I got it setup, it only ran about 5 hours before our electricity was restored. So, although I can't really offer a long term review, I can say it was an easy assembly, started right up, and did what it was advertised to do. I ran two small heaters, refrigerator, and some other small electronics off of it. We will keep it for future emergencies, and feel good knowing we have it if we ever need it again.
