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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Beautiful Beast!! Our generator was purchased in the event of a power outage. We have had our house wired to accept gen power by an electrician. Our electrician was SO impressed with our generator. He even mentioned it was robust enough to power our whole 2400 sq.ft. house, except for the AC. During our testing, the machine started up within 1 second, made less noise than we would have thought for its size and power. The controls are easy to use and understand (I am a novice at this) and maneuvering this beast was actually pleasant. Sturdy contruction and high quality gives you an excellent feeling that this can handle high demands. During our testing, it performed perfectly and did power the entire house with ease (45% total load with EVERY light, fan, appliance turned on). If I could give it 6stars, I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of Power for a Compact Unit I bought this unit to replace a larger generator two years ago. It went through on hurricane like a champ. One half of my home was easily powered (which was more than enough, 1 AC 3 yard pumps, misc. 20 A breakers). The unit stores easily when not in use and is easy to move to hook up the transfer switch. I recently had a bad battery and the folks at Generac are replacing it. What a pleasant surprise and a guarantee that I will buy another Generac when the time comes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this during a power outage from a hurricane. It runs my entire house. Glad I bought it. Love the electric start. I keep it plugged in to charge all the time. It’s always ready to go! No issues with it. I highly recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware it could be delivered with a defective battery I purchased a GP8000E and paid extra for the electric start. I started it when it first arrived to ensure all was OK. It started right up. 8 weeks later I went to exercise it and the electric start would not work. I took it to a factory authorized service center where they discovered the battery was defective. It would not charge nor hold a charge. They replaced it and it started immediately and now runs fine. THE PROBLEM....This generator cost over a thousand dollars, is brand new with 12 minutes run time on it, YES 12 MINUTES. The generator was delivered to me with that defective battery and Generac WILL NOT COVER IT UNDER WARRANTY!! I cannot say enough good about ELECTRIC GENERATORS DIRECT which is who I purchased it from as they are a Generac Distributor. They stepped up BIG TIME once they were told what happened and THEY took care of this repair. Fabulous customer understanding and support by ELECTRIC GENERATORS DIRECT. Generac..not so much. This is a major purchase for most. Hope it runs and lasts longer than the factory supplied battery!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Is Number 1 I purchased the Generac GP8000E after doing alot of research with several other brands. I am not disappointed, from the moment I started to unpack the generator I noticed the quality of the packaging, which gave me confidence in the product right off the bat. The engineering made assembly very easy! You notice the quality in every part as you put this baby together. The quality shows that Generac and its associates genuinely care about the product they put out to the consumer.
