Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great generator I love the generator. It works excellent, just as expected. Starts immediately and runs well; provides the power I need when required. The only complaint I have is the noise level when running. Surely Generac could or should have equipped the generator with a muffler system to quieten the sound emitted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great and easy to use Used it three times so far. Started with ease and ran flawlessly. Runs my entire 2590sq ft house without effort. Well pump, 2 refrigerators, oil furnace, freezer and misc lights. A great buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets my needs I bought this generator so that we would have house power should the grid fail, but it is portable enough to move around the property as a utility generator. It serves both purposes well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GP8000E I bought this generator after my old one (not a Generac) quit. I always shut off the fuel and let the carburetor run out of fuel. I also use Seafoam in the gas. This helps to stabilize the fuel and keeps the jets clean. I purchased a product called Generlink that fits behind my electric meter and allows me to plug the generator directly into the meter. I also use a solar power battery tender to keep the battery charged. I am very happy with how this generator performs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm pleased overall with the features and output. I was surprised that the THD was high enough that my digital frequency meter would not read 60 Hertz either at no load or full load. I had to read the frequency with my ocilloscope. However the THD must be low enough so that it doesn't seem to bother my electronics. It starts easy with the pull starter. I'll probably use a bigger starting battery when the little one that came with the unit dies. The voltage is pretty stable during motor starts. Since the genset is heavy I would like to see a lifting eye to set it in a pickup bed. All things considered, it seems worth the affordable price for an 8 KW non commercial machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Home Back Up Took it out of the box attached wheels and legs. Small problem with a punched out piece of metal still in one of the holes. A little bit of a pain to drill out but got it. Filled with oil and stabilized gas hit start button and off we went. Wired home interlock and plug in to breaker panel which was very easy. Shut main breaker off turned on 30 amp breaker and ran the entire home. Not oven or AC although it would run AC and furnace with some things turned off. I was running Well pump and sump pump as well as a refrigerator and freezer. Awesome machine so far. Looking forward to first power outage. I will be turning on the front porch lights to show off.
