Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good generator Purchased this generator in case we did need it in this hurricane season. Checked out a few other ones and went with this one for the quality of Generac and the price was good. Never had or used a generator before, this one seems easy to set up and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with choice Compared price and availability with several brands with similar output, including Harbor Freight Predator. Determined this appeared to be best overall value of generators in stock in my area when I was ready to purchase. Easy to set up and started on 2nd pull. All outlets worked and powered various test hookups as expected. Will now store away until we encounter a power outage. Hurricane season is here. Only complaint so far is the sound level...wife thinks it is too loud, but better than having no power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built generator After removing from the box and performing minor assembly and servicing per the manual, the engine fired on first pull. I checked the generator out, tested all sockets no problems at all. Very sturdy and I like the handle, makes it easy to move around. For me it was money well spent.
