Generac LP Series 5500 Portable Propane Generator

The LP 5500 is the smart choice for portable home emergency backup power, utilizing the benefits of propane to provide enough power to cover essential circuits in your home.

Smart Fuel

  • Clean – liquid propane is essentially non-toxic, and does not spill during refueling.
  • Reliable - liquid propane does not degrade over time and no stabilizers are needed, so tanks can be stored indefinitely.
  • Available – gasoline may not be available during a power outage and gas pumps don’t work without electricity.

Smart Design

  • Integrated fuel tank holder secures a 20 or 30 lb LP tank to unit for easier and safer transportation
  • Folding/nesting handle and folding tank holder for compact storage
  • (30) Amp outlet allows generator to be connected to a permanently installed, manual transfer switch for quick backup of hardwired appliances like a furnace or sump pump during a power outage
  • Powerful 389 cc Generac OHV engine and heavy duty alternator delivers 5500 running watts and 6875 starting watts to power essential circuits
  • Quick-Access enclosure detaches in a snap for easy engine maintenance

Smart Start with the Exclusive Power Dial

  • Eliminates searching for separate controls in an emergency.
  • No other portable generator - propane or gasoline fueled - has all startup essentials on a single dial, with easy-to-follow instructions. Prime, choke, start and shutdown are conveniently located together for quicker startup, essential in an emergency.
