Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed in my purchase Very disappointment in my purchase. My 15 year old 3000w unit died and I needed a quick replacement, and decided to go with two IQ2000s and a parallel kit instead. After a lot of calls I finally found 1 store that had two, none of the dealers listed on the website had any inventory, but did say they could get me two, in two weeks...... After carefully following the instructions and filling the oil, adding gas, and opening the gas vent, I started one of the units up. The red Overload LED immediately came on (with nothing plugged into the unit), and the unit ran rough, increasing and decreasing revs as if the carb was having issues (gas was fresh bought an hour before, and other devices using that gas ran fine). I let it run a bit but no changes so I called Generac. The support tech heard the engine and agreed it didn't sound right, and after I told him about the Overload LED coming on, he said bring it back, he had no solution, so I'm bringing both units back, one does me no good running my RV, and I'm not taking a chance with a replacement. Disappointed....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy camper! Very happy with the purchase. Currently own a different brand and it is much noisier. Very happy with the fuel and "time left" indicators. Excellent price compared to competitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm an architect and I specify emergency power for big projects This product provides a thoughtful balance of power, economy, and ease of use to solve the problems of power outages and day trips to places without power. It is not a construction generator but will let you run consumer tools one at a time. I use it to run my coffeemaker OR my refrigerator during power outages. In addition you can charge your stuff and run a bunch of LED lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Part of My Readiness Plan As a resident of earthquake country, and a member of our local Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), I needed to complete my preparedness kit by adding a home generator. Unlike other users who have reviewed this model, I am not a camper, I don't regularly need portable power for tools, nor do we have an unreliable power grid. However, I don know what will happen when we have a large earthquake and that power will be unavailable for days, perhaps even weeks, following such an event. As a CERT member, we practice for such situations all the time and I have seen plenty of portable generators in use during these exercises. I'm impressed by the cost/benefit ratio of Generac and trust that the IQ series will be just what I need for my home. I regularly run it as part of its maintenance schedule, place an electrical load on it, and am very satisfied with its performance. As I live in a townhome complex, my neighbors appreciate that it runs quietly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and quiet Bought this in Arizona while boondocking near Tucson. Much quieter than my large generator. Felt better about not being so loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A power source you can take anywhere Very handy to have on a farm. I use it to provide quiet power at the job sight for tools and lights, The size and weight allows me to load it easily in the back of my Gator. I would recommend this generator to my family, friends and neighbors.
