Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble! Just received my new Generac GP8000E generator, assembly is quite easy. Once I try it out I will review again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome looking machine! I just received my Generac GP8000E portable generator a couple of days ago. I bought it for the sole purpose of having back-up power in case of a power outage. I asked our electricians at work which generator they would recommend and they both said this one at the same time. That tells me a lot. We have a Generac stand alone at work that powers our whole office and I feel that if they both recommended this model and brand, then it must be the one I'll be happy with. I'm almost hoping the power goes off this winter..... lol

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work Horse I have been using this generator for 5 Years now. Cant recommend enough. Starts immediately every time, in sub zero cold or 100 degree heat waves. I have used it as a backup for my house during outages and as a main power source for construction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator but... I like this unit a lot. It powers my entire house and I have frequent power outages. My only gripe is the handle and wheels. The rubber hand holds slide right off and there is only one pin to.secure the folding handle which feels kind of cheap. It's hard to roll this across an uneven surface. Maybe it was only intended for city people.to roll on cement.in the garage. Trying to get it from the shed to the house across an uneven yard kind of sucks. Guess I'll have to either build it its own house or get it a tougher cart to mount it in

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just runs and runs I'm no Nor Cal and have been experiencing the PG&E Power Safety Shutoff. My neighbor had one of these 8000's and I was fortunate enough to find one as well. Electrician came and wired it into my panel and wow...my whole house just runs like it's on PG&E. Some little weird stuff to get used to, like when the well kicks on, the LED lights in the kitchen flicker for a second but no big deal. Hot showers (propane hot water heater), lights, etc. I go into a room and turn on the light...just like normal. Only complaint is it's loud so getting it away from the house is important but we just close up the windows and deal with a bit of a hum to have power.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed My father got me this as a wedding present. living in rural maine at the end of a line it's a must have! Installed a auxiliary switch (by qualified electrician)and tested it out with different loads and it managed everything in my house. Used it a couple times running tools around my property and had zero issues. Finally get hit with a wind rain storm this past week, got about 3 minutes of light load, (freezer and fridge) before it kicked. Generatoe runs fine but puts out zero power. (And yes I flipped the reset) Company told me to try the drill trick with no luck! Very disappointed I'm still sitting in the dark with a brand new generator with 2 hours on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliability!!! I purchased this product after reviewing several manufacturers. I was looking for a size that could provide most of the convinces we are used to in the event of an outage. I have a Generic 4000XL that was good but not big enough. We had a six day outage due to a tornado that left most of the city without power. The 4000XL failed in the first five minutes due to a winding wire that got caught in the armature and shot the voltage regulator. This outage convinced me to double the size of the unit as it became a nuisance switching power cables. It would be great to be able to afford a standby natural gas unit but resources are tight. This unit performed very well!!! Even though it is battery start, it started easily manually and on the first pull!!!! Now I need to see if the 4000XL is repairable for smaller building projects that do not need lots of power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product Our power has been out for the last 3 days from hurricane dorian, this generator has worked great. We switched our house over to the Generac 8000W generator as soon as we lost power. Fired up AC, some lights, a few receptacles and refrigerator, WORKS GREAT and has worked for us on a tank of gas for 17hrs. HOT HUMID days with no power, glad we have our Generac generator.
