Never got through 1 tank of gas
Literally, after starting it, it stopped and never started again. I bought it on June 25th and it’s been in the shop for over a month now. I bought it for the 4th of July and it broke down before that. I want my money back. I’ll never buy a Generac again.

Keep for emergencies and farm development
This is perfect for our requirements, here at home to keep the portable AC going IF NECESSARY, fridge/freezers. But great at the farm to run power tools and have available at the 'bug out' shelter/cabin. Easy to start, quiet, and versatile to move around. Recommend using non-ethanol gas exclusively,

Good value for product
Like the size and weight. Easy to move with just one person. It would be great if you added a fuel gauge to keep track easier of fuel consumption when running.

Instruction manual obsolete
The manual is very difficult to read and seems to describe things that no longer apply. For example, the instructions make no mention of the "on-off" indicators on the gasoline fill cap. One can only assume, since there is no "off" position on the "choke/run control" that one is to return this control to "choke" and turn the filler cap knob to "off" to purge the carburetor of gasoline. However, doing that seems to be futile, since it keeps running for a long time.

Displays are nice, but troublesome
Generator worked great for 2 weeks, then fuel level indicator kept reading low level on a full tank. Servicer replaced display board and power inverter per Generac's instructions. Still did not fix problem. Generac finally determined to replace the generator but replacement unit not expected for 2-3 weeks. Later found out they stopped producing this generator but they are still selling what they have in stock. If they stopped producing it, must be for a good reason. I have owned this generator for 3 months but have only been able to use it for 2 weeks. Very dissatisfied.

Having to unscrew side cover to check oil is very inconvenient

Unable to handle what it claims
At first I thought this was a great unit for the price. However, I might have got a lemon.
First, I notice a few things. One: it is always hard to start, but it does start
Two: it will not power anything higher than 14.4 amps. (On the box it say 20 amps). I tried a 1535 running watt microwave *had tested the wattage and and amperage * and the generator had a hard time to run it. The microwave was running but was not at full power could only see it use 1400 watts. The same thing happened with other appliances that were under 1700 watts AND they were the only appliance plugged in. I used a 20 amp extension cord.
3rd , it isn't that quiet as it claims and the exodus mode doesn't really do anything when I am running a load. Even after the load is removed, toggling the eco mode didnt make the engine simmer down.
After contacting Genrac Customer service they could only tell me what was in the manual. And referred me to an authorized dealer. It is brand new and less than 30 days. I called the dealer to get the questions answered that Generac said they couldn't answer (basic questions) and I never got a call back from the dealer. So, I have a unit that I am unable to get repaired or replaced.
I shouldn't have to pay a diagnostic fee to get an answer to questions about the unit that the manufacturer should know.
I was expecting great things from Generac.

no electric output
This unit starts easy. The electric output is not working. I use this at a hunting shack. The most recent time I used it the red light stayed on solid and the green light would pulse on and off. The electricity would go on for a second or a few seconds. The engine ran for 15 minutes at a time but the electric power was not working. So i shut it down. This unit has not worked to my liking since day 1. The engine had a lope to it and then would just die like it is out of gas. I would like to know what I'm doing wrong an this probably doesn't have 25 hours run time. someone said it's the economy switch and that didn't change a thing. Frustrated
