Rated 3 out of 5 by from Brand new out of the box and to the shop! We ordered this Generac generator because of the positive reviews but sadly are disappointed. We had to order two and neither one of them worked as they should. The first one the exhaust blew white smoke and a strong odor of fuel/oil. We followed the instructions in the owners manual. We ran it several times hoping it would go away. It was suggested by Generac customer service to send it back. We ordered a second one with high hopes that this one would be good. However, after prepping it as recommended in the owners manual, the green ready light did not come on. We plugged lesser expensive equipment in to the unit and it worked. However, if the ready light isn't working properly, how do we know the overload and oil lights are working. This time Generac customer service suggested we take it to a certified place of service. So we have a brand new out of the box Generac generator at a service center, never been used. Very disappointing. It's been 5 weeks since we ordered the first one and we have yet to have a working generator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product and excellent customer support. I bought this generator less than a year ago. For some reason it used to surge after a few hours of operation. At the beginning started failing after 4-5 hrs of continuous operation, initially a smaller surge, just little variation on the rpm’s but getting bigger to the point of shutting itself down. Lately the problem used to start after only a few minutes of operation. I took it to the authorized service center where they try to fix it. Initially they thought it was a fouled carburetor but to their surprise it was completely clean(I run the gen on marine gas without alcohol plus I add additives) so after getting in touch with technical support at Generac they decide the problem came from the inverter/computer. After replacing the part the generator improve a little bit but the problem was still there so Generac without any complaints sent me a new one. Kudos for their great customer support. I received the new generator 2 days ago and today will be the first time using it in a camping trip, hopefully it won’t have the same issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Research. I was surprised. The generator runs well and supplies our needs, though use has been limited. My confusion came from the following two areas. 1. Where manufactured I'm in Wisconsin, as are several Generac locations. I thought they were made here, but the box says made in China. That was a major reason for not purchasing from Harbor Freight. 2. Warranty I thought the warranty was 3 years full coverage - again, research, it is not. I purchased it at a reasonable sale price, so not so painful. It just felt like information was purposely unclear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not American made Recently I decided to purchase a portable generator to run the refrigerator/freezer in the event of a power outage. I wanted to buy an American made product so I contacted Generac about the GP3000 and was assured by their customer service rep that all Generac products were made, not just “engineered” in the U.S. The Generac website also said the GP3000 had a 3 year warranty. I ordered the unit and received it 2 days ago. The warranty I received with it was only for 2 years and the generator was marked as made in China. Though I am convinced the GP3000 would meet my needs I decided to ship it back since I can buy a Chinese generator cheaper elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly quiet! We needed a generator for our High School Marching Band, especially for the field show competitions which are usually held on football fields. We needed on that was super quiet but capable of over 2000 watts for the sound equipment. It's so quiet that you can't hear it running from the bleachers at all! It doesn't detract from the field show and it has plenty of power! Our high schoolers can start it and move it quickly and easily. Highly recommend if you want a quiet generator that has more power than some of the others.
