Generator Review
Absolute JUNK!
This is my 3rd Generac 5000 Power Plus - proudly made in USA (as it says under the name)
1. Dismantles itself (due to vibration) - every time a new screw or nut falls out.
2. Gives me 170 V in 120 outlets.
3. Manual start broke in every one of them.
4. Very loud.
5. Unreliable.
6. Each one died within first 100 hours of sporadic use (always stored inside)

Why having three? - first was purchased (stator died), second was purchased from private owner (newer used though)... more

Reliable And Well Constructed...
I have been using Generac generators for nearly 8 years now without a single problem.

The company builds quality generators that last the test of time.

If you are looking for a good emergency generator, look no further!

Don't Buy It
This model ran for less than 10 hours before throwing a connecting rod. Don't buy it.

When Ike was heading our way my brother and I both bought the GP5000, paying $240 more than the off brand because Generac is supposed to be one of the better brands. At 169 hours his generator quit producing electricity and at 189 hours mine quit. Both were ran properly and not overloaded. Needless to say we will be taking them back for a refund because I just don't trust them anymore and don't want it even if fixed. I will buy a Honda or Briggs & Stratton in the off season when I can find... more

Bradley,
Both of these units will be covered by Generac's Factory Warranty. Give the folks at Generac a call at (888) 436-3722 (toll free) to find the Authorized Service near you.

Once you get the warranty repair done at no charge, it's up to you whether you keep them or sell them...

Thank Full
Well as everyone knows, Hurricane Ike screwed up Southeast Texas. Down trees in streets, on houses, and even in trees.

We lost power on Saturday morning 9/15/08 at 2:35a and got it back Tuesday 9/23/08 at 10:00a.

We decided on Monday 9/17/08 to stay with my wife's parents, right around the corner across the main road that comes through out subdivision. This way, we could go to work and have mom watch our daughter.

Yeah, work...and no lights, ain't it great. Well, come Thursday, I... more

Hurricane Ike
Hurricane Ike hit the Texas Gulf Coast on 09/12/2008.

I went 7 days without electricity and this Generator kept us up and going with a cold refridgerator and lights!

I ran it 24 hours a day without a single hicup!

I highly recommend this generator to anyone who wants a reliable and affordable generator.

Thanks GENRAC!
