Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product from Reviews Haven't Used We purchased item and it took longer than expected to receive it and that was frustrating considering the price we paid for it. We haven't got to use the product yet as we just picked it up from the store on 12/08/2021 which was more than a month since we purchased it. We will update more if we actually get to use the generator this winter more than just starting it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product fulfilled my needs It was easy to put together, add wheels, handles, added oil/gas. Even though it has electric start, just before starting, I pulled the cord very lightly just to ensure the oil was distributed, the unit started! Very reliable! The electric start works too. Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GP series Generac Great Looking Unit! The electric start is why I chose this unit. I installed the wheels, handle, put the oil in & connected the SUPPLIED BATTERY, put the gas in, hit the start button and it started right up. No more pulling the rope for this old guy! It does have a backup pull rope by the way. The unit even comes with charger to keep the battery charged also when not in use. Didn't see that with the other ones out there. This is a great generator and I'm glad I bought this one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product with excellence performance! I have the above model Generac portable gas generator, still in the box. I am very familiar with this unit as a good friend of mine has the exact same unit. I assisted him in building a house for his family. We used this unit for about 3 months and it fulfilled all of our needs in this house building project. It was used for long periods of time and only turned off for lunch time and never left us without power. After the power company finally installed a temporary pole and electricity to my friends property, we did stop using the unit. Because of its flawless performance I purchased the same generator and I am looking forward to using it...

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!!!
