Rated 5 out of 5 by Larian LeQuella Workhorse Generator that can handle most household needs
Without buying a whole house, gas powered generator, this is the best deal you can get. This generator is powerful, reliable, and easy to operate. I have experienced no problems with my generator, and have been able to keep my family comfortable during power outages and other events where this device is required.

The battery that came with my generator was dead I took it out and charged it. Put the cables on correct bolted it back up and nothing. Is there a fuse box hidden behind the panels? Maybe a fuse needs replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Neal911 Awesome Generator
I use this generator all of the time to power a number of heat presses for our mobile t-shirt business. My XP8000E has never let me down. The only issue that I have is that the 120V GFCI outlets are now too sensitive and continually trip even with the slightest load. Thank goodness for the 30amp 120/240V outlet!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clay Great backup generator
My XG8000E was well packaged, easy to set up and fired up on the first crank after topping up the oil. It's run great (I've already got 15 hours on it) and I'm looking at years of trouble free use. I especially appreciate the spare oil/air filters and spark plug. Thanks Generac!

Our XP8000 was easy to assemble, is easy to move when needed, and runs like a champion. Has served us well, twice, since we purchased it in September. Now looking forward to the next winter storm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Janu77 It was great for 4 years
We had this generator for 4 years and used it often. It stopped giving us any power. When we took it in for service they told us the "electrical" part was no longer working. They kept it for 2 months, we finally went and picked it back up. About to take it somewhere else. It powered everything we needed it to, the refrigerator, the tv, the air conditioner, it's a real work horse. I would still recommend this generator and am hoping ours is back running soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigone ,,,Great product
Just received my unit. Xp8000 got it to replace a gp 7500 just because of the lower harmonic distortion. This thing came packed well but I was missing a couple of parts. The axal for the wheels and one mount for the axel. I'm still waiting for a reply from my dealer. On a performance note this thing is a monster not overly loud. Idle feature great upgrade. Powers anything I plug in to it without problem. It's a little heavy but I feel it's worth it just for protection from getting bumped by anything in the garage. It would have got a perfect review except for the missing pieces. I'm sure Generac will make it right though.
