Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price and reliable So far so good; I'm confident it will do the job. It makes a little more noise than some but quiet enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product ,very dependable. My new generator is fantastic. Easy to use even after a misplaced the manual. The unit is new and only used 2 times last summer (2017). When I used it this year unfortunately there was a problem, only one of the outlets worked correctly. The other outlet (power) worked so I could do my job. When I called the factory for help the representative was excellent. helped me register the generator so I could get it fixed and helped me find a repair center. This is my 1st Generac product but not my last, definitely quality and excellent service. Thank you, Mark

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Power! This unit has 120 Volt outlets as well as 1-30 Amp 120/240 Volt twist lock outlet. With the 30 Amp outlet you can run More Power! The electric start and pull start are fantastic. The best of both worlds. Just follow the recommendations from the owners manual and carefully select your electric loads and anyone can have emergency power safely. More Power!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for emergency backup power After several years of wanting a generator for backup power during utility power outages, and several years of putting it off, I finally bought a Generac GP8000E. I chose this model because it just happened to be available where I was shopping and because of Generac's overall good reputation. I also wanted a generator in this 7500 to 10,000 watt category. I added a third-party mechanical lock-out mechanism and a 40 amp double pole back-feed breaker to my main breaker panel, and fed it through a 30-amp power inlet box. The mechanical lock-out acts as a manual transfer switch, in compliance with electrical codes and safety regulations. This keeps me, my generator, my house, and power company personnel all safe. This arrangement allows me to power my entire house (except my central air conditioning) all on the GP8000E. My historical electrical usage data indicated that during non-A/C months, I never drew more that 5000 watts from the power company at any given time. Thus this 8000 watt -capable generator is perfect! I even measured the AC current with typical household loads all turned on (lights, refrigerator, basement freezer, computers, etc.) while running on this generator and I got a reading around 7 to 10 amps on each "hot" leg of the 240 volt 30 amp feed from the generator. Thus I still have a very comfortable "cushion" before I approach this generator's maximum power rating. I bought this generator about 2 years ago. I've only needed to use it a couple of times, but tonight I *needed* it! It started right up and ran continuously for about 7 hours straight. No problems. It provided all the power we needed for lights, refrigeration, TV, and computers all without a hiccup. I'm very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product will be great for power outages I bought this product for power outages. Sump pump in basement was primary reason since I have a finished basement. It was also important to me for my refrigerator and freezer to keep my food from being ruined during a power outage.
