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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably quiet! After doing lots of research online I chose this generac model and have not been disappointed! It is incredibly quiet even under load. The efficiency mode is a nice option for lighter loads to conserve fuel. The only issue I have is the generator is a bit heavy for one person but can be managed if necessary. A wheel kit would make it about perfect if one were available. The electric start is a great feature and pull start is not difficult if needed. Started right up out of the box and have had no issues, it runs the ac unit on my 32 foot travel trailer with no problem. Highly recommend this model, quality well built generator as the ne would expect from Generac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off grid for 1 year Due to Covid, I have been living off grid for about a year. I run my generator for 6 hours every 3 days in order to charge my lithium batteries, and it has met all of my expectations. The electric start is great, and I have only used the pull start twice, when it was well below zero. I would definitely buy again. My only concerns are for me, I find the fuel remaining display hard to understand and don't use it. My only other comment is that the spark arrester got supper dirty and clogged up to the point that it made the generator very hard to run. I removed mine and have not had any issues since.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of features Starts and runs great. Very quiet. However, there is a slight “ticking “ or “ knocking” noise at times. Also it squeals when I plug in a 500watt ceramic heater. No squealing with a heavier load.hoping the noise goes away with use as we don’t have any Generac service in this area. I may take it apart myself. Otherwise I quite like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Bought this generator because I could not find the generator that I was looking for- turned out I got a better generator at a better price! Light weight compared to other generators in its class, very quite and looks great. I recommend this generator to everyone I meet. I’ve demonstrated it several times to other campers as we travel across America.
