Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what is advertised I decided that going without electricity and having the basement flood after the last hurricane was more stress than I wanted in my life. I did a lot searching on the internet for a generator that would give me the best peace of mind. I settled on the Generac 5940 GP6500- 6500 Watt Portable Generator (5940). I paid for the tail gate service and it was delivered very promptly and wheeled up to my house. Assembly was extremely easy. I put oil and gas in it as directed, and with one pull it was running. A few weeks later I had the "Transfer Switch" installed and we killed all power to the house, started the generator, and flipped the transfer switch to the operating position. Everything we had connected (which was just about everything except central air conditioning) was powered on. We even ran water until our well pump turned on and the generator never even hesitated or appeared to be under strain. So if we ever lose electricity again, especially for a long duration of time, the neighbors will see that we have heat, water, and lights. They will all be welcome! Thanks Generac for supplying a product that truly is what is advertised. In today's world it is nice to see some honesty in advertising.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy start We purchased our unit the day before Hurricane Ida hit the LA coast. Our old unit would not start so we had to get a new one. This was the only one available everyone was sold out. I am sure glad they had this unit. It was very easy to assemble. Hurricane Ida hit and the power was out for 10 days. It ran 8 to 10 hours a day and never faulted in any way. It was very easy to start, it ran everything I needed (except to central a/c). I just took it out of storage for the new hurricane season. I checked everything out filled it with gasoline and started on the first pull. Very very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Arrived as planned! Packaged was perfect! Added oil and gas first pull started right up? Load tested it after 1hour of running! I’m highly pleased! For the money you can’t beat this unit! Highly recommend. I bought the GP3300i

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EASY PEASEY Initial assembly was quite easy. Oil fill: It would have been helpful to know that the whole quart would be needed, The Inconvenience of stopping and checking 2-3 times could have been avoided, that was unnecessary.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Home Back Up GP17500 Purchased for hurricane back up power for my all-electric home. Works very well but just falls short of being able to operate all the house loads. Having said that it still covers the important items (a/c, lights, tv, fans, etc.) but adding the water heater and stove pushes the 50-amp capacity. Neighbors are looking at upgrading their units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Performance!!! The RS8000E is a fantastic portable generator that performed admirably for 66+ hrs during a recent 72-hr power outage. I bought mine at the big hardware store that starts with the letter "M" and it was one of the last 2 they still had available. . It easily powered a fridge/freezer, 5 cu ft chest freezer, 1000 watt microwave oven, 8000 BTU window A/C unit, 5000 BTU window A/C unit, a mini-fridge, fish tank with heater/filter/bubbler, and several lamps with low-wattage LED bulbs. We took turns running the A/C units, never running both at the same time. My daughter even ran a hair dryer for a few minutes. The lamps never flickered, indicating that the RS8000E never struggled to keep everything powered. . The generator started up on the first pull every time in between gas tank fill-ups, which were less frequent than I thought they'd be. I was able to run it for 12-14 hrs in between gas fill-ups. . This generator is quite loud because it's so powerful, but we were able to run it overnight because our neighbors' houses are far enough away and they wouldn't be bothered by the noise. . I really like the convenience of the PowerDial, which eliminates the need to flip a choke lever, turn a fuel valve, and push the "On" button before pulling the cord like most other generators require you to do. . I highly recommend this workhorse of a generator. It saved us about $1,000 in frozen meat/food that would have spoiled, prevented our fish from dying, and kept us out of the dark for 3 nights. It paid for itself in its first use. . As a Wisconsinite, Generac is the first name that comes to mind when I think of whole-house and portable generators. You can't go wrong with Generac generators. So if you're thinking of buying the RS8000E, just go ahead and buy it! You won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great generator for price My GP8000E generator was delivered to my carport in the box. It was easy to set up. Since there's no gas in the tank, we just leaned it back on it's side, allowing us to put the wheels on without picking up the generator. My husband and I had it together and running in less than an hour. I love the electric start. It's not as loud as I thought it would be. Not had to use it after a storm (hope I never do), but so far so good. I crank it up and use it every two weeks so don't have to worry about storage. It powers the coffee pot and air fryer without blinking an eye. I searched and searched for a generator made in the U.S.A., and Generac was the most made in the U.S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great I needed a generator for my RV and backup for the house. I bought it because friends have a home backup Generac which they are very pleased with. Worked great right out of the box and I did a test run of a few hours with no problems.
