Enjoying The Generator Life
We periodically get extended power failures and we are on a well. Finally decided to get a generator and it is wonderful. Lights, kitchen appliances and most important of all, flushing. I think I have used the Generac 4 times in the last 1-1/2 years and it was well worth the expense. It starts easily and runs well. I probably could have had my electrician hook up a few more circuits! Very pleased!
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Generac Gp6500
My Generac GP6500 generator was delivered ahead of schedule and in perfect condition. Once it was set up I was able to start it on the first pull. A bit noisy. My only issue is there is no CA compliant model with electric start. I guess I'll just have to move out of California.

Generac Generator
Well I live in northern California and we are in our 4th year of drought. All of our electricity is hydro generation. I am concerned that at some point we will have Brown or Blackouts. So I bough two generators. One is the Generac the other is similar and can be linked together.

I haven't even filled the gas tanks yet. I might say that these are contractor type units and would not be ideal for camping as they weigh in at about 150 lbs each. Get the small $1000 Honda for portability.
