Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good unit but hard to start Requires a warm up (carburetor area) before I can start it. I use hair drier but what to do when no electricity??? Can electric start be installed?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Several small irritating concerns I've had the unit for several years. It was always difficult to start. I took it in for servicing and was told it had poor quality wiring. I ran it monthly and always shut it down by turning of the fuel flow off to keep the carburetor clean. The fuel flow lever broke off. I purchased a new fuel valve. The old valve broke with off leaving the threaded collar stuck in the fuel tank. I purchased a new fuel tank. In changing the fuel tank I discovered cracked hoses. I'm having difficulty finding replacement hoses. I'm wondering if the design engineers use or test their products long term. The location of the pull cord is awkward. I recommend this product with caution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features! The Generac 3250 served us well after Hurricane Irma. It ran everything in the house including a small a/c.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Started on the first pull. Sold. We are off to a good start...as in started on the first pull. I actually am quite experienced with this generator since my Dad has owned this same model for years and it has always worked perfectly for him. We've ran many power tools and temporary lights off his generator without issues. So, I bought one for temporary portable power for my acreage when the storms hit and when I need portable power at the far ends of my property. I am looking forward to using this generator for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what a generator does, electrify things! No problems. Starts right up as long as you can follow instructions that a cat can follow, one pull. I use 92 Clear. That means 92 octane non-ethonal. It's over the top and not required to run this machine. I run this generator once per week for a half hour to make sure to keep it in good working condition.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fiber pull rope - REALLY??? Generator comes in handy when power goes out but only operates fridge, freezer, maybe a light or two - but that's all that's needed. Completely shocked when I needed it most to find that the pull rope broke. It's a fiber pull rope! Not sure why on earth fiber was used instead of nylon. Users need long term reliability.
