Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quiet As Advertised I purchased this for the same reason as many others. I wanted a reliable power supply for my travel trailer. I also wanted something quiet so others wouldn't be annoyed at camping areas. Set up was simple. Connect the battery, put in the oil and gas and it is ready to go. Started right up and ran smooth and quiet. However, while running, I heard a slight vibration noise that didn't sound normal. After a little investigation I saw that one of the standing frame supports was cracked where it mounts to the base of the unit. (Access door side on the left) I'm certain this is not a manufacturing flaw, rather something that happened during the shipping process. I called the Generac customer support number (On a Saturday during a holiday weekend) and spoke with a very nice woman named Linda. She registered my product and informed me that this is something that would be covered under the warranty. She was able to get me in contact with a local authorized repair shop. I have since contacted them and they have the replacement part on order. Service after the sale is extremely important. I was pleasantly surprised how smooth this process has been to get the repair done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't be 'one of those guys' while camping I bought this to use with our 26 ft. camper. Sites with hook-ups are becoming more difficult to get with the increase in post-pandemic campers. I wanted to have full use of my camper but didn't want to listen to (or have my neighbors listen to) a loud, open-frame generator. This generator is SO quiet. It is barely louder than ambient noise at the campground when sitting in our site, and is virtually in-audible by the time you are 50 ft away. Set up was super easy. Connect battery cables. Add oil and good gas (91 octane with zero ethanol is BEST.). Turn on and push start... It is very well built. None of the problems noted in other reviews. My only 'complaints' is the weight and the oil drain design. 100+ pounds seems heavy for a unit this size. But I knew the weight prior to buying it. The oil drain design could use some work. A 4" hose that would slip out through the bottom oil drain port would be a HUGE improvement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Quality Construction I have a iQ2000 and wanted another Generac with more wattage. Bought this for camping and as a backup to our larger generator. Arrived in perfect condition, started on the second pull (very smooth) and started later with the electric start. Followed all recommended break in procedures and it is very quiet for a generator this size. It's 109 lbs. dry so I built a dolly for maneuverability in my building. Highly recommend the iQ3500!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had the iq3500 for 3 months ... and it cranks good and runs quiet , -- until I plug in something in. Then it makes a whistling or whining noise that is louder than the motor. Called all repair people in my area to check it out and all that are still in business say they only work on whole home generators. 2 of them kindly looked at it and listened and said it may be supposed to make that noise. It charges fine an for now I'll try to enjoy the whistling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent and can be better. I am a event rental company owner. We rent generators for many different applications. Purchased us to run our restroom trailers which have RV generators. What we really liked about it is that one person could move it. It is very quiet. We would love to see this with an EFI option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet Little Powerhouse This is a well built generator with lots of features. We moved across the country and left our old generator with the house. My wife is on oxygen and we wanted something just in case of an extended power outage. It doesn't happen much here in AZ compared to where we lived before so just wanted something to run her machine, the refrigerator and a few lights. I like the electric start but it does start easy with the recoil starter. The fuel gauge and information center is nice. Compared to our old generator this is really quiet. It doesn't make as much noise as the A/C unit outside, which is important living in a subdivision now. After a lot of research we decided on this one and have been happy so far. I will be adding a transfer switch in the future to make it even easier to connect. One note, it is heavy for one person to move around. I bought a moving dolly that is the perfect size, so rolling it around is not bad.
