Q: Hey Jim,
I sent you a question a while back, appreciate your prompt reply.
Am interested in the Generac GP 7000E, 7000 watt elect. start generator. Your price is $975.10, shipped to me, tax free, lift gate ready. If I come up to your location in Bowlingbrook ( is that correct? ) and take it home myself in my truck, can I get it for less? Just wondering. We are coming up to Joliet at the end of May to see some friends, not too far from you. Thanks. Doug Taylor.

by Doug Taylor from Illinois on May 05, 2011

A: Hi Doug,
We can offer a discount if you were to pick up the machine here in Bolingbrook, however, in the case of a pick up the transaction occurs in Illinois. The IL State sales tax would apply which would pretty much negate the discount. Trade shipping discount for the payment of sales tax.......

Still, if you are in the area we would welcome you to our store.

Just let us know what you would like to do -

Q: I just received the generator I purchased from you (Generac GP5500 - 5500 Watt Portable Generator) and it comes with a bottle of oil. It does not say on the bottle what type it is. 30 weight or 10w30? Do you know so that it is the proper oil to use for the current temperature.
Thanks, Larry

by Larry from Ohio on March 26, 2011

A: Generac uses 10W30 in their kits that get sent with the portable generators.

Q: Jim: I want to buy a protective cover for my Generac 5623 6500W portable generator (33.5" x 26.5" x 27.5"). Any recommendations for a cover that will fit this model of generator?
by John G. Smith from Maryland on February 27, 2011

A: The Classic Accessories Large Cover will fit up to 8000 watts. We have tested these covers on all of the Generac GP model generators and other manufacturers.

Note: It is important to not include the wheels when measuring the width as the generator covers are not meant to cover them.

Nice Working Generator But.....
The generac generator I just purchased is a nice machine but I figured that by this time (2010) they would have perfected a muffler that would bring the decibel level way down.

The least they could do is to sell some kind of optional "hush " kit or refer their customers to after-market manufacturers of noise reduction devices for their product line. I asked and they told me that what you see is what you got, and don't go fooling around with the exhaust because it would void the... more

There is nothing dainty about a 7,000 Watt generator- it takes a 410cc engine to run it, and that is going to make noise. Most of the noise is from the engine itself, not from the muffler.

Generac Gp7000e
This is a very good generator with one mild warning. Trivial but it matters. Look at the air intake on this unit. It's at the bottom of the air cleaner facing slightly up. New England just got hit with the Halloween storm of ''11. We were out of power for five days. Day one, Saturday night I fire up the GP7000E. Ran rough for the first 3-5 minutes and then settled in at an even RPM. The loads were balanced and I didn't have much of a load in the first place. Then the RPMs dropped... more

Gp7000e Review
Very satisfied with my Generac gp7000e. I wanted a portable emergency generator with electric start and pressurized oil system that's made in USA. Received generator six days after I ordered. I paid $959 with free shipping (YES!) and No Tax (YESSS!). Generator says made in USA instead of assembled in USA (Yessss) No problems with EGD. Although I am overall 98% satisfied here are a few minor negatives:

oil filter-made in s. korea
battery charger-made in china
wheels- no country of... more

Great Generator, Slow Delivery
We used the check option, saved 2%. It may not be worth the wait if you need a generator now. It took 18 days from when the generator was ordered until it arrived. Some of the delay can be attributed to the end-of-year holidays, but if you order with a credit card your delivery is in 4 or 5 days.

Otherwise, once it arrived the assembly was easy. Somewhat confusing graphics, which don't show the user exactly how the handles go on. It is intuitive but if you don't pay attention it is easy... more

Customer Impressions
Generator arrived when expected.

Delivery was handled quickly and carefully.

Other than a contradiction between Owner's Manual and separate supplemental sheet for wheel assembly, instructions to prep and start generator were well explained and therefore easy to follow.

Generator startup easy.

Excellent customer service to followup on missing item in generator shipment.

Would recommend your company to others.

A Tad Disappointed
Frame built & designed very well. Engine starts & runs smoothly (electric start). Upon firing it up I found that the output was only 110VAC at 3600 RPM & not 120VAC as advertised. My APC UPS on my electronics didn't like the low voltage.

Took it in to be looked at. The authorized dealer worked with GENERAC & said that he had to set the RPM up to 3770 to get 120VAC. I haven't picked it up yet so can't measure it myself. This is not as advertised. At 3770 RPM the gas usage... more
Mike, the Portable Generator Expert
Product Expert
All engine driven generators operate at a “nominal” speed of 3600rpm which should yield a 120v +/- 5% output. These settings typically work for everyone considering that no-load voltages ranging from 110-120 are considered “US Averages”. Depending upon several ambient factors, and the given type of load you wish to power, the engines speed setting may need to be adjusted. This can be true with UPS’s that don’t compensate for input voltage ranges. In these cases, a person will want to adjust the no-load speed setting of the engines to produce 125-130vAC so that as the load is taken by the generator it then normalizes at or around the 115-120v window.

E-power On The Farm
I purchased the GP7000E online after the big box stores tried to tell me they had what I needed. My dealings with Electric Generators Direct had no surprises and the unit works great, especially the electric start.

I do have a problem with the shipping folks. Apparently the smallest delivery truck they have is an 18 wheeler and there was not way he could get to my house. So I had to pickup and unload myself, which wasn't that big a deal for me.

I've load tested the unit and it performs... more

Top Rated Generator
I wrote an email about what I wanted to do and received quick helpful information--that I used.

Ordered Generac generator model 5626, outside inlet box, and manual transfer switch with 10 interchangeable circuits.

Got ready to put it all together and needed the power cord for the generator and ordered it.

Got an electrician to put it all together. After it was all hooked up, it ran perfect.

Generac generators are top rated and I can clearly see why.

I would recommend this... more

Worked Just Great
Used my generator for the first time last week at our Rodeo. Stayed in my trailer for five days.

It started easily on the first try every day. I have the electric start and it worked just great.

I am very pleased with my generator.

Great Value
First, let me say that my purchase of the Generac 5626 GP7000E from Electric Generators went extremely smoothly. I submitted one question prior to purchase, and they answered promptly in a most satisfactory way.

Shipment was quick and the generator arrived in good shape. Upon unpacking the Generac I was impressed by the apparent good quality of the machine. The wheels, handles and foot attached easily with the hardware provided and just a couple of ordinary tools.

This Generator Is Everything I Needed
I purchased the Generator back in Nov. 08, it is everything I needed.

It was easy to install the wheels and handles. I connected the red battery cable as instructed, filled with oil provided up to botton of threads, filled with gas, opened gas flow valve, pushed the choke to start position and this little GP7000E fired right up.

It runs smooth with no vibration, and the electric start is wonderful.

A few days later I conducted a test for performance in the event of a power failure.... more
