Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Satisified directions for assembly were very easy to follow. Once assembled it started on the 2nd pull. The only negative I have is the small wheels. It is difficult to maneuver even going up and down small grades with the water hose and sprayer hose at the bottom so close to the ground. I purchased this portable generator solely because of my purchase of the above power washer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the features of the GP3300 I purchased a generac GP3300 about a month back for remote power to help set up a mobile home. Have operated the generator quite a bit during the last month and have had no problems to date. It will not support some of my power tools, most specifically a dewalt 12 inch cutoff saw. Requires too much amperage on basic start but it will support most of my smaller power tools. ONE PROBLEM I have is that WAS NO OWNERS MANUAL WITH THIS UNIT. I really would like to have a "written" owners manual for the unit. Is that a possibility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We needed a generator fast We were caught in the recently flooding in WI and our electric service was out and did not have a restoration time from the utility company. We went to the store, purchased the generator and got it set up and running with no problems. Works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for emergency uses. I bought this after a storm knocked out power for a few days. It was easy to set up and start using. I used it to power chest freezers and refrigerators along with a few phone chargers. It keep things going well. It was loud but what do you expect from a gas engine. I also used it in the yard to power my electric chainsaw to clean up downed trees and it was more convenient than stringing out 300 feet of electrical cords. I would recommend it as a good choice if you want something that is better than the entry level portable generators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and easy to operate One of many who recently lost power in WI. This is perfect size for our country home and worked like a charm. My husband had us power within minutes of hooking up. My only complaint is the noise but its performance was sufficient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this machine. I use this in the north woods of Michigan. Storms knock over trees, power goes out a lot. Generac starts first or second pull every time. Never failed in the years I’ve owned it. A 50 foot 240v extension cord connects it to my service disconnect. That switch powers a refrigerator, lights, TV and a handful of wall outlets. An inexpensive adapter was needed to match the 3250 to the extension cord plug. The 3250 is not intended to be whole house, of course. But it makes an outage more comfortable. If you don’t want to run 240v, plug into the 120v side. I’ve done that, too. Quality machine. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right size, right price Started first time. A little loud but it's not a mower... Footprint is good. Fits nice in the shed.
