Rated 2 out of 5 by from Electric Start quit working after 3 uses I start the generator once a month and run it for about a half an hour. The dang electric start won’t crank anymore. The battery that came with it died quickly. Replaced it and nothing. It has to be pull started to get going. Anyone else had this issue?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do your research and then buy this one. I had purchased a Westinghouse Generator and it had all kinds of issues. Before I took it back I did finely get it to run. I don't know who makes there motor but it just sounded very cheep, loose and claney took it back Fast forward I decided after researching several other top notch units I decided on this Generac GP8000e. I was missing things not in the main box but the place I bought it from supplied it all so all was good. I connected the battery, it was charged up, added the oil added mid grade gas, turned on the gas flow to the carb and it started right up and this motor is tight and sounds like a top notch motor. My only regret would be the tool kit that Ace gave me was the cheapest 2 wrench's I think I have ever seen in my life and I don't think they are relevant to anything. i was also missing oil and they gave me Pennzoil and not Generac oil and I heard Generac is the best. Buy it you you wont be disappointed!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unstoppable Purchased about 4 years ago During power outages and I get a lot as I live in remote area I run my A/C 3 deep freezers. And 3 frigerator freezers also my well. Plus lights and power equipment if I’m in wood shop Quite the machine I know gas tank will run at least 14 hours I never shut off just refill with gas as it doesn’t splash out with the filler screen Definitely worth it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good machine but no load monitor Assembly was rather easy, unit started right up with the electrical start. Was disappointed that the unit does not have a load monitor that tells you how much of output is being used. This should be an important addition to the unit. The breaker switch technique just tells you when you have over loaded the unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good quality machine and good price Just got generator today, it is replacing an older, smaller one of another brand. Put it together with no problems and it cranked right up and ran smooth. This will be for occasional use as a home backup generator. Looking forward to many years of service from it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good features, good price, easy to use This generator was fairly easy to assemble and is easy to move, thanks to the extended handles. It’s reliable and efficient, and has plenty of available outlets. While not quiet, it’s not as noisy as others I’ve heard. We’ve waited many years to buy a generator, and this model, recommended by our electrician, has performed well in two outages shortly after our purchase.
