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

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

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

Happy With Generac And Electric Generators Direct
First time making a major purchase over the internet and dealing with Electric Generators Direct (EGD). Both went off without a hitch. Have not had to use generator yet, but have been running with and without load to get some run time in. Would recommend EGD to family or friends.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Price

Loved Everything But The Price
We bought our generator a few months back and have not had occasion to use it other than to start it up, with all the power off, and it worked great.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: Price
