Rated 1 out of 5 by from Junk Absolute Junk. Cant even locate parts to fix this piece of garbage. Used it 3 times to wash cars and clean a driveway and now it will not start or run.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Crank- no Start ongoing issue Bought this generator in May, 2018. Worked fine for a few short power outages. Live in rural area and need Generator for power outages as we are on a well and have no water when power out. In Sept 2021, we had a major hurricane come through and had no power for four days. As soon as power went out, we started Generac and it ran great for about 48 hours. At 3 in the morning, it stopped. I checked, fuel good, oil good and had been overall for only 76 hours per meter. Could crank it it but would not keep running. Took it to tech who could not fix it. Paid the $250 and sent to next tech. He could not fix it, paid over $500 for all the parts replaced Next, sent it to "Certified Generac" Tech. After months, was finally told it could not be fixed. According to Tech, Generac refused to assist him any further. After only 76 hours of run time, I now have a 450 lbs anchor as it is useless. Would love to have it working but can't afford to spend anymore when Generac will not help with a known issue for these models. (See YOuTube for verification) DO NOT BUY #Generac Cranknostart

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great product for a great price. We had a power outage so I went to meanards and bought one. Brought it home put it together which was easy, added the oil and gas and it fired right up. Had everything I wanted up and running in no time. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Backup Generator for the home Needed to upgrade my home generator and found this product on sale. have always wanted a Generac portable generator. The setup was simple. The unit fired up on the first pull. Only have half an hour on it so far, but feel like it will be a good investment. I wish there was a low idle on this unit, but there is not. So far that is my only CON.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality of generators has gone downhill Use caution when purchasing a GP17500E. I own 1 of these units and one GP15000E. After purchasing my 2nd GP17500E the electrical output panel did not work out of the box, the battery needed replaced after a couple hours, stator went out and I spent over $1,500.00 in travel and employees time solving these issues with the help of a certified Generac service center.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The gas on/off switch is not well illustrated on machine or in manual I just bought a GP8000E, so I'm just getting familiar with it. I did buy it through a support company that will be maintaining it for me. So far, my one suggestion would be to clearly mark the gas on/off switch. It's not clearly marked on the machine. The company did add a green marker for "on," but none for "off." The sticker you have on it does not help at all. I had to call my support company to find out that when the switch is set to noon and 6, the gas is on, and when set to 9 and 3, the gas is off. The manual does not illustrate this very well, either.
