Rated 4 out of 5 by from enough power I have had this generator for about 10 years . About once a year I pull it out of my garage & start it up . A few years ago I lost power all day . The generator ran great . This winter it did not start . I replaced the fuel line . Then it started . The heat here in Southern California made the fuel line brittle . I found new fuel line in my tool box . Overall the generator runs great . I'm not happy because it was made in China . I would have rather buy a American product .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific generator I run my sugar shack (maple syrup ) completely on this generator, lights,transfer pumps and all outlets , at the same time I use the 220 outlet to run my wells submersible pump. It runs 6 to 8 hours a day for two months. I am on my fifth year. I hope to replace to someday with the same model. It will only burn two to three gallons of gas in that time I hope they continue this model.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This product is cheaply made The recoil starter broke three times in one year. It uses way much more gas than it is stated in the manual. It is way too loud. As soon as i find a sucker to buy it from me, I will buy Honda. I know that i would spend more money, but at least i won't have to worry if it would start.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GP 3250 Generac Generator We just purchased our GP 3250 generator after a power outage last week in July of 2019, and I had to borrow a generator to save my freezer, refrigerator and sump pump. It was very easy to assemble, everything I needed to make it operate was in the box. Very nice, sturdy looking unit. Output voltage was measured correctly. Gonna test run it today on a few appliances. Seems like a very nice unit for the money we paid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little unit! Met my needs during a spring ice storm power outage. Powered refrigerator, freezer, some lights and tv. Also moved it to power our well pump with the 240 feed - great to take a shower!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 14 Amp breaker ...horrible design Generac sells this product advertising it as 20 Amp then brilliantly installs a 14Amp breaker so that you can't use it for 20Amps. I bought this to run AN air compressor on a job site. In the workshop it is on a shared 20Amp circuit and runs great. On this generator as the only device it keeps throwing the breaker. Maybe you should rename your company to ACME! Don't tell me I should have bought a larger generator. Your advertising is misleading. You should not be advertising this unit ad 20Amp capable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features at a Great Price My GP 3250 had many features and was reasonably priced. It works well and delivers as rated. I have used it to help in a disaster relief to keep food from spoiling where people were not going to have power restored for two weeks and it worked very well. I have also used it camping where there were no hookups and it performed well in that situation also.
