Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally bought a Generator and It is a Generac Wife and I have been talking about a Generator for 10 yrs. WE lost power at 3 am. This yr we switched to a Pellet stove and she has a Cpap Machine to sleep with. Went to the Lowes in Ludington Mich and got the last Generac that they had. The unit was awesome ran the pump, frig, pellet stove Cpap. In the spring I am getting the manual bypass switch/breaker/cable and back feed the House.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features This generator is easy to set up and use. Had to purchase a new one when our old one went out when hurricane Ida hit. Very good product and happy with it. I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed in a pinch Purchased this model day before Hurricane Ida 8-28-21. Knew power would go out like it always does. Generators were hard to find with long lines everywhere. Me and two neighbors got lucky and picked up 3 at big box store as a truck just came in. I really wanted something larger to power more stuff, but all they had. We were out of power for 4-5 days and all 3 units performed well. The only negatives is this unit is noisy, I guess like many generators, and fuel thirsty. Went through 10+ gallons a day without any ac unit connected. Don't know how well this unit would do with a portable ac connected. If I had the time, would have picked a larger unit, and one without Cosence or that 50 state California CARB compliance nonsense and saved a few bucks there. Don't know the long term reliability because this is my use, but so far satified.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to assemble, great that instructions on box So far it has performed well, Cosense got me so I turned generator 180 deg and didn’t have issue, gas nozzle would be better set off to side of tank for easier fill, bought after hurricane Ida

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Co sense is garbage I only have two hours on mine, however my bro-n-law bought one same day. He put 52 hours on his and it quit running. We brought it back and they told us we were the 38th returned generac that day. They said the co sensor will not reset so that's why they stop running. It was outside in the yard, not yeah. Safety features aren't safe when you have an elderly mother about to die from Louisiana heat and you depend on a generator and a window unit. Now question is how long will mine last, I have power back and won't know until or next hurricane. Mom-n-law surving off my coleman with Subaru motor that I bought during Katrina in 05. Almost 20 years old and still running like a champ. This generac couldn't make it 52 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plastic and cotter pins. So far seems like a good generator. That said there is more plastic than on my older 5000 (ie choke lever). One definite disappointment is the really cheap and flimsy old fashioned cotter pins used to hold the wheels on. Why not use a self retaining hex as on the handle and feet or at least a heavier slide on style retainer clip????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed at the time The power went out and they kept extending the estimate on when it would be back on, so so I needed something in a pinch. 90 degrees plus outside and not on city water so I needed 220 volts for the water pump and still enough for the fridge and freezer. As it turned out I was even able to run my air conditioning! it would kick out a little if the pump kicked in though and wait 5 minutes to turn back feature for the AC compressor. BUT IT WORKED OUT WELL! probably the only house in the area able to have AC. It starts easy and was easy to set up but it is a noisier than I expected it would be.
