The quality of this generator is all that you want of a product made in our country, even the colors are nice! I'd rather have it and not need it - than need it and not have it!

Kristie,
From another fellow Minnesotan, it may be hard to describe Wisconsin as part of our country (where Generac is corporately located), but they do make a rather fine little generator don't ya know.......

Generac Gp5500 - 5500 Watt Portable Generator Review
I am very pleased. It is everything I expected and more. It took me about an hour to put it all together and it started on the first pull. I bought it for emergencies but I will run it every couple weeks as directed to make sure I have power when and if needed.

Generac is a trusted name in generators. It was a great buy for the money. Very glad they moved up to the 5500.

Peace Of Mind
I purchased this model after reviewing multiple online options. I like the fact it has multiple features which some models with similar wattage didn't.

Namely, the built-in hour meter, low oil shutoff, circuit breaker protection. I don't plan to use it that often, but the fact it started after the first pull was reassuring.

Easy
Ordering was easy, I received it in 3 days.

Start up and installation was easy. The unit started on the 3rd pull the first time.

I have test-run it a couple times since, and it starts by the second pull.

I am pleased to find a unit made in the USA.

Highly Recommended
I purchased this generator for emergencies..after being without electric for 3 days from ice storm last winter!

It arrived at my house very promptly, and was exactly as advertised- it started on second pull.

So far I've tested it by running everything in my garage on it two different times..

I hope we never have to use it but I'm very,very happy knowing it will do the job if we do lose electric
during ice storms or wind storms.

I would highly recommend this product!
