Rated 5 out of 5 by from More Power Overall great unit. However, room for improvement on power options and design. Pro's - Super Quiet and Fuel Efficient. Cons - Not available in bigger options. Would love to see something in the 4000-5000W range with some sound dampening. Or, design a cover for your open frame options. Lastly, please add some wheels to this thing!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Began positive I have had several carb issues. I worked where we sold Generac generators, and always spoke highly of them. I owned a GP5500 prior w/ few problems. I always kept ethanol free gas or gas w/ Stabil in my IQ3500 . Which purchased 9/2019. I had one carb replacement a year ago ,after a month wait for parts from Generac. It would start but not run and the ECO setting would shutter and shut the engine off. Now it is repeating problems, after only being run on ethanol gas for less than 1 hour. We used it to run the 13.5K A/C or to run heater fan and charge RV batteries. We were able to do one or the other at a time. It was never able to pull the 25 Amp specs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Generator - a bit heavy I love this generator. Powerful and quiet. The only downside is weight: 100 pounds. I wish there was some sort of wheel accessory for it to make it easier to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get what you pay for Definitely not the cheapest, but it'll be worth the money in the long run. All features are as advertised, quiet, powerful, LCD screen provides very useful information. Parallel kit to use two at once works perfect as well. Would recommend to anyone. However, NO WHEELS. Being an inverter generator, this is heavy. So I was surprised when I could not find a wheel attachment for this. It would make moving around so much easier.

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 4 out of 5 by from Voltage output Does the IQ 3500W Have a 220v output. Here in south Africa we have 220v ac not 120
