Rated 5 out of 5 by from Live off the grid in Alaska Bought it to build my house which it did great.Had to replace the pull cord three times the last time the recoil spring broke so now I start it with my cordless drill. lf it doesn't start right up I add some oil then runs great. It now power's my house 13 plus hours a day every day and is going strong been a year now and love it .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ran/operated flawlessly 72 hrs straight I've had for several years. Used with a very little, light loads short time. Flawless during the emergency tornado activity in van Zandt co Texas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emergency need. GP3300 Had a severe power outage of over 12 hours with no scheduled end in sight. Needed to save the fridge and freezer food. Nearest store had this Generac unit available. Mine is a GP3300 not the GP3250. I couldn't find the listing for mine. It offers a few more watts and has dual duplex outlets. Never used a portable generator before; instructions were clear and easy (although I didn't see where the large washers were to go/figured it out after it was assembled...axle spacers) Started on the 2nd pull and ran until city power came back online and I shut the Generac off. I've known of Generac because of doing maintenance on large industrial backup units. Appears to have been a good choice for the home, as well. Very happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ready for NO Power Purchased this because of many power failures here in the Santa Cruz Mountains this last winter, put it together, and it started right up! That is much appreciated and very good. Have only used twice but excellent product and reputation will not have to worry about no power for years to come!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little generator Bought last year. Starter cord beginning to fray, might be due to the location which is behind the frame/cage, which makes it mildly awkward for starting. Starts up easily, runs great. Use a heavy duty cord to run high power items like a worm drive or chop saws, other wise with a smaller dia. cord it may trip the breaker. At my cabin will run a 240v well, 110v shop vacuum & LED lights at the same time without any issues. Good on gas too.
