Rated 1 out of 5 by from REBRANDED Harbor Freight 3500 Inverter Gen I researched every available generator in the 2kw - 3kw range and landed on the Generac 3500 because it seemed to be a fair price and a reputable brand. I paid a premium for the generator over the HF 3500 because I specifically wanted to NOT buy a generator from Harbor Fright. Upon arrival the unit starts and runs nicely and seems quiet, but upon further inspection I noticed the internals looked suspiciously similar to the HF model my friend has. So I put them side by side. Turns out that inside the pretty orange case it’s THE EXACT SAME GENERATOR, part for part as the Harbor Freight unit. I know rebranding is common among smaller generator brands, but from GENERAC??? Come on. Additionally, the spec sheet lists the engine type as “Generac OHV” which at least implies it’s an in-house motor. Nope. Seems a bit deceptive to me. Literally the ONLY difference inside is the valve cover which was cast with “Generac” instead of “OHV” which the HF unit has. I basically paid $350 more for a heavy steel case and no wheels. Won’t be buying from Generac again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent portable generator After months of extensive research, I chose the Generac IQ3500 as a home back power source. All of the pre-work paid off. This unit is very well built, runs extremely well, and is unbelievably quiet. Could not be more pleased with this generator. Well done Generac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet and Starts Easy This IQ3500 is super quiet and starts very easily. After it sat for a week or so i thought I would try the pull start, 1 pull and started right up. If you are not running at full load all the time you will hardly know it's running.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not produce any electricity Turned it on for the first time after setting it up per instructions. It started right up and runs but it doesn't produce any electricity. Also appears to be running a little rough as I wouldn't call it quiet. In any case, I called Generac and they said my only option is to take it to a local repair shop. A brand new generator and I have to deal with getting it repaired. Seems unreasonable to put that burden on me but regardless I've called two dealers and neither have returned my calls. I think my only option is going is to submit a claim with my credit card and see if they will refund my purchase.
