Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hard ramp up, but after that a great unit ! First day I got it was really hard to get it working, 5 attempts or more every time I wanted to start the Inverter, the second day was a little bit easier. Its been in use for 4 days now, starting is no longer a problem, I can get it running every time at the first try. Don´t know if it was part of the break in period or what. Unit is super capable, I can run an electric grill and a Makita saw at the same time with no trouble. Fuel efficiency is great on econo mode. The only down to this product is the weight, You need two strong guys to load it into a pickup truck, if you are camping with the wife probably the generator will stay in the car 'cause its really heavy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably Quiet! I bought this generator to run my Ice House/Camper. All of the 2000 units were not powerful enough to run my AC Unit. This unit has been great, I was able to run the AC, Refrigerator, TV, DVD, Lights, and Coffee maker all at the same time. The IQ3500 is also the quietest unit I have seen, it is as quiet as the 2000 watt units. Only thing I would like to see improved is the LCD display, on bright days it is a little hard to read and I would like it to stay on hours remaining. You have to scroll though all options each time. Either way not a big deal. Over all a great unit and I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Impressed I don't like giving 5's but a 4 ("Good") didn't seem like enough. 4.5 is where I'd like to be. Let me start by saying I've never owned a generator, but we wanted one that could get us through an extended power outage and could be used to run a few power tools in a remote location. I probably didn't need a 3500 but I'm sick of going small and regretting not getting the bigger one, so I went with the iQ3500. First all the things I like. The generator looks great (I know that doesn't matter, but trust me, it does), and it feels like a tank. After I filled it with gas and oil, I went to start it. It's got an electric start but I wanted to see how the cord start felt. I pulled the cord out super slow to see how long the recoil would be and it started! Seriously, I barely pulled the cord and it started first try. The next thing I noticed is how crazy quiet it is! And when you put it on Eco mode, you could have it in the middle of a tailgate and people would tell you to turn own the music before they told you to turn off the generator. I used it to power up my table saw, drill, shop vac (not same time), which were no problem, and of course plugging in lots of low pull items like a radio, fan, etc. is nothing for this thing. Now the thing I don't like: I mentioned it is built like a tank....well, it's as heavy as one too. To call it portable is a stretch. My wife and I can move it around, but we wouldn't want to carry it too far. Either it needs to be made with wheels or some sort of cart should be an add-on. But that's the only bad thing I've found so far. Really impressed with this, and it's a U.S. company too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Quiet!!! This thing is super quiet, and starts with the push of a button every time! I use it for when we lose power to run my freezers and refrigerators.

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.
