Electric Generators Direct Recommended

We like the Generac 8000 watt portable generator for four reasons.

1. Electric Start
Generators are often hard to start with a recoil rope. This Generac generator comes conveniently equipped with an electric start button and a battery. Simply press the button, and it starts like a charm.

2. It's Affordable

3. Low Tone Muffler
This feature reduces the noise level. If you have ever been near a portable generator while it's running, it can be very loud. This keeps the noise down.

Get The Power You Need Where You Need It Most
Easily power electrical loads when you're at home or on the road with Generac's GP8000E portable generator. Featuring electric start capabilities and an integrated Start/Run/Off switch for easy operation control, the GP8000E is easy to use. The unit's Low Oil Level Shutdown mechanism helps to safeguard Generac's OHV engine from potential damage, while covered outlets keep receptacles clean and usable in the most rugged working conditions. The unit's hour meter also helps track maintenance... more

Exceeded Expectations
With proper cycling, powered both 2.5 ton split unit and 2.0 ton package unit simultaneously. Product performed exactly as described. Could not have been easier to assemble (10 minutes), add oil, add gas, connect battery, start generator.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: None

Made In China!
Apparently this is a new model from Generac. I had purchased a generator from them in 1999 and was pleased with it. I was always told, "you will pay more because its American made but they are worth it". The engine on that one still runs like a champ but there is no electrical output. The repair place told me Generac no longer makes the replacement parts and due to the fact I really wanted a higher output generator I decided to purchase this one. I felt cheated when I saw on the box... more

Just Right
Purchased for my parents replacing a 20 year old 4500 watt that still ran but wanted just a little more power. Have not use it yet for an outage (which is good). Received gen in a timely fashion, easy to put together, added oil and fuel. She fired right up first time. Gen is built well sold with features. Want have long range use / review until next storm. But as far as the purchase, A#1, very courteous and professional service delivered right to the door. 2nd to none!
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Durable
Cons: Solid rubber tires would have been nice

Best On The Market
I bought a Generac because it's the best on the market. I fired it up when I got it and it purrs like a kitten. Just received the kit for change over when power goes off. This also increases the value of my home when we sell. Thanks Electric Generators Direct...................
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy To Store, Exceeded Expectations
