Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Generator meets all my expectations. With the exception of one part missing in the shipment, the generator went together easily. The instructions were clear and well written. The missing part was sent quickly with no hassles. It runs my home with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I purchased the GP17500E to replace a Generac 15KW/22.5KW generator that I purchased new over 15 years ago. It is noticeably quieter than my old unit ( which still functions perfectly and is now my emergency backup ). Being that we live in S. Florida, having a reliable generator is extremely important. I had numerous brand options, but chose to go with a brand that has served me flawlessly for over 15 years through many hurricane related extended power outages. When you really NEED a generator to work; you will be glad you purchased a quality brand like Generac. I now own 4 Generac units. Two GP3600's for running several small window AC units 24/7 and my big GP17500 and my older 15KW model. Due to limitations on fuel storage, we only run the big unit 4-5 hours a day.. the little units will keep us at a comfortable temperature all day and night powering the window AC units using much less fuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of mind I opted to buy a portable home back up generator opposed to a built in because of the versatility. It will do the job of a built in but I have the option to use it for other things as well as loaning to someone else if I haven’t lost power in the event of a hurricane or other natural disasters. Upon delivery I was impressed with the ease of set up and overall performance of the generator. I expected it to be very loud but was actually surprised that it was not unbearable. Overall very happy with the purchase and not as anxious with the upcoming hurricane season starting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The GP 17500 is a GREAT UNIT Decided to go with this unit instead if a whole house generator.This unit will supply the power we want plus it's portable. A lot cheaper that installing a whole house generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Bought the 17.5 KW to run my whole house, including the well. My wife is dependent upon ventilators to help her breathe and I needed a generator big enough to run the well and AC units since we have several power outages a year due to hurricanes and storms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great brand ! Good reputation ! We have had a lot of power outages in the past year. I had a small generator, but wouldn't handle everything, I would have to shut off things then turn on things. With the New bigger model I can run everything ! Easy to put together, easy to run ! So glad I made this purchase !!!! My small generator is a General, had great experience with it, so that is why I recommend General !!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from From delivery to operation the instructions are very easy to follow and assembly went quickly. Generator is very easy to operate I have already put the generator to use and it works like a champ. No bogging down even under high AMP. Very impressed, really not as noisy as I feared, and the easy on off makes operating it a breeze. Very low fuel consumption which made it even better for the overall cost. I have looked into service the generator myself and this should be just as easy. Overall best generator I have come across

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Purchased for 2800 sq for single family home in south Florida. Fortunately the only time we’ve used it is to start it up every month to ensure everything is running properly. During the test start up’s everything is working properly and running all electrical necessary. Would highly recommend
