Rated 1 out of 5 by from Makes no power Bought this brand new from Factory Pure, started and ran but made no power, has been in repair shop for last 2 weeks for warranty work. Warranty place wasn't very customer friendly and it still hasn't been fixed. Bought this for camping and haven't been able to use it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good build quality, and Quiet. So this is my first time owning a decent sized generator, and I didn't want to skimp on quality. this generator has surpassed my expectations, it is very quiet (on my last camping trip I even had a few people ask me if it was running when it was). I have only used it twice so far since I bought it so I can't say much about the reliability but I know that Generac makes some good products, so it should last me a long time. It does have some good features, what I like the most is it has a digital readout for the fuel level so your not guessing. Overall a good product for what I need it for so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super quiet! Bought this portable for my camper as a backup and for state parks where there isn’t any electrical hookups. Went with Generac because i also have a 17KW on my home. Excellent brand! I was surprised by how quiet this guy is. You walk 10 feet and it is like its barely audible. I recommended it to my friend who was looking for one. He bought the same model (iq 3500) and he is also thrilled! I can highly recommend this generator for performance, affordability and looks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and super quiet I recently purchased the iQ3500. After receiving the unit I inspected and found the exhaust shied was broken. I contacted generac and they were open on a Sunday. I told them the issue and they mailed me out a replacement part. Their customer service was great and their staff is very knowledgeable. I put the supplied oil and battery in the unit. And filled with gas and it fired right up. I can’t believe how quiet this unit is. You can stand and talk normally next to it even under full load. I put about 10 hours on the unit and it is working great. I really love this and can’t wait to use it camping this summer. I would recommend generac and this unit to anyone for a their great customer service and product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality and features at a reasonable price This generator will be used for off grid camping. We already have a whole house Generac generator so it was no surprise to find the quality and feature we were looking for and much less expensive than the 'big name' generator. The IQ3500 came well packed and complete down to the oil and funnel. Everything except fuel for start up. After camping next to people running their generators, we wanted a quite unit and this is it. Surprisingly quite. We are very pleased with this purchase and are ready to go camping as soon as the weather breaks.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quiet and smooth The generator looks and runs great. Very quiet and powerful. The quality and customer support is less than great though. The unit was received with damage. The plastic housing that separates the exhaust from the engine was cracked and had a piece missing. I am still waiting for another reply but so far they have not been willing to take care of the issue and are trying to push it off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IQ3500 I just purchased a IQ3500. The unit came with everything needed less the gasoline. I read the manual and filled the unit with the provided oil, added 100% gas and fired it up. It started immediately and ran great. Ultra quite and very smooth. I plugged in some lights for a lite load and ran it for 1.5 hours. I shut it down and checked the oil level. I am very happy with my purchase. This is my second Generac generator that I own. My older one is an 11 year old 7500 watt and still runs like new. Thanks for building reliable products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IQ3500 I usually never purchase a new product for which I can not find other reviews. I purchased this generator for the portability and the compact size. I am 100% glad I bought this model. Started the first time, ran quieter than I expected. I am considering on purchasing a 2nd unit and hook them up parallel with each other.
