Rated 5 out of 5 by from GP3000i a great purchase I initially intended to purchase the new 2500 but went with the 3000 thinking more is better and the retailer had a promotion on the 3000. I have used it almost daily with power tools since purchasing 3 weeks ago and absolutely no regrets. A friend has a Honda 2200 inverter and the GP3000 is every-bit as quiet as the Honda if not more-so. It has started on the first pull every time. It appears to be fuel efficient although I have not run it dry so I cannot speak for hours on a tank of gas. I do wish it had a fuel or hour gauge. With a full tank of gas the unit weighs around 66 lbs. which is a heft for me. The Generac literature implies the inverter unit all have the outlets protected by a dust cover - this is not true for the 3000. I do wish they would include a protective cover for the GP3000i for protecting the case and controls from dings and dust when transporting or storing. My research indicates the units are made in the USA - Wisconsin. I considered units by 4 other manufacturers and I am very comfortable with my decision to get the GP3000i.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs our 15k btu a/c most of the night We purchased this unit to run our camper when boon-docking. It hiccups a but on a/c start up, but does the job. It was worked well. I do wish it had a larger fuel tank, but it is sufficient. We have up around 150 hrs on it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I bought this for boondocking in my 27 ft. travel trailer. Out of the box, added gas and oil, 2 pulls and it purred like a kitten. Runs my 15,000 BTU air conditioner and fridge and 19 in. TV NO problem. Very quiet. Highly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Generly like to power to weight ratio. I got the generator (Craftsmen 3000i) last spring and used it on two camping trips. It worked flawlessly. However, the last two times I have tried to run the unit it has been very difficult to start. I had to remove the plug and use starter fluid. Yesterday I removed the spark arrestor and discovered it to be quit dirty. I cleaned the spark arrestor and also checked the plug. I installed a hour meter as soon as I got the machine and as of today there are only 38 hours of run time. Even after performing this early maintenance the unit was still hard to start. I really like the weight to power ratio, but am concerned on the starting difficulty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1/2 Pull First Start - Incredibly Quiet We finally purchase a Generac GP3000i for our RV and household emergency power needs. It is undoubtedly the easiest, most convenient and quietest generator on the market today. I am highly recommending this to any one who is considering purchasing a generator

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator - poor welds on wheel brackets Opened the box to a brand new one thousand dollar generator. Everything looked great. Not a blemish anywhere. Started assembly and all is well. Wheels installed no problem. Handle, added oil, connected battery, gassed up, started and ran beautiful; again no problem. First time moving on wheels; problem. Both wheel brackets broke free from all but one weld. Impossible to move more than six inches without backside wheel pigeon toeing into the muffler. Hurricane Delta was fast approaching to my area of south Louisiana so I wasn’t about to return a good running generator. I would tough-out the inconvenience and deal with it after the storm. I wasn’t about to return the 200 pound unit and spend the time assembly another. The generator turned into a thousand dollar stand-by insurance policy. I’m otherwise happy for making the purchase. I’m not the first one to experience the weld breaks after reading reviews. Serious consideration for a Generac whole house standby generator purchase is now in jeopardy unless my complete satisfaction with warranty claim is made.
