Customer Reviews
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd buy another !! Had these before and when I needed another, looked only for dealers that carried the Generac brand. Last Generac gen. worked better than any other brand I had used in the past and have to say, this one is just as good. First pull start just like the other and responds to load like a PRO !!!!!!!!! Need another, it'll be a Generac............... KK

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product was a life saver, very easy to use This is the first time we had to buy a generator during hurricane Matthew in the South. It was very easy to refill and we had enough power to run most of the appliances and lights with fans. We did switch out the appliances so we did not overload it. It is a very good product and I know it will be there for me agin when I need it. I would recommend it to everyone. Plus we got a 3 year warranty which was a plus off my mind. I hope we never have to be without power again for a week, but at least I know I have a good back up next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value for the Price This is the first generator I have personally owned. I have used others that belonged to someone else. The Generac models were the most reliable I have seen over the years. It was easy to set-up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable & Reliable Backup Power The Generac GP5500 generator is the first generator that I have used for home backup power. I purchased this generator a couple of months ago, and I found the price to be reasonable. This generator also looked good, and all parts were in perfect condition. I wired up a 10-4 SJOOW cord (with 240 volt L14-30 plug) to my transfer switch so that I could feed my entire breaker panel. We had our first power outage of the winter season yesterday, and it lasted approximately 9 hours. The GP5500 started right up, and it performed flawlessly. I was able to run everything in my house as normal, with just a couple of sensible exceptions. I did not do laundry, nor did I try to run my electric stove (I did find that one large burner, or the two small burners on the stovetop could be run if needed though). After 9 hours of supplying power to the house, the GP5500 used only about 5 gallons of gas. The generator was not heavily loaded, but I was pleased with that fuel consumption rate. My one "wish" is that these generators came with a load or watt meter of some kind, but that is just the engineer in me. Long story short, I am VERY happy with my GP5500 generator. It worked perfectly and even surpassed my expectations. It is a true bargain, and I will highly recommend the GP5500 (and other Generac products) to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gp5500 I paid a little more than msrp. I ordered it at a local hardware store before Sandy when none of the big boys could help me. When sandy hit I was ready. Though I had to drive 75 miles to get gasoline. Then I was set. Ran my house (small in size ) with no trouble. The 5500 ran much longer than I expected and wasn't noisy at all. I give my Generac 2 thumbs up!
