Generac RS5500 5500 Watts comes with PowerDial. This convenient feature streamlines the start-up process by not having separate run, fuel or choke controls. This eliminates the search for separate controls during an emergency.

This model comes with a 6.7 Gallon fuel tank that allows for up to 11 hours of run time at load and comes with a 20-foot 30-Amp convenience cord that splits your power from one cord into 4 outlets.

Great features for a great price.

Backup Ac Power Supply For Home Use
I recently decided to purchase a generator for occasional home use as a back up generator. The unit shipped within 1 day of my online order confirmation. It arrived intact within 3 days and offloaded at my home with the lift gate truck I had requested at the time of the order.

The unit required minor assembly of a wheel kit, and handle which took about 10 minutes with the recommended hand tools suggested in the directions. The unit shipped with the generator oil that was required prior... more

Outstanding Generator
On July 9th this year (2016) we here in Sugar Grove, North Carolina had a storm cell come through our area with 65 to 75 mile an hour winds that felled trees and downed many power lines. We of course had no power, this was on a Friday and it lasted for three days. I was quite worried about all the food in our refrigerator and the freezer, not to mention that we had no water source due to our well pump not on line. I work every weekend as a supervisor at a long term care facility and saw the... more

First Pull
The Generac showed up as promised, I unloaded it, put the wheels and handle on. Filled it up with gas and oil.
Set the knob to start, pulled the cord and it started right up. I was amazed it started that easy. Great generator, would highly recommend this generator

Just The Generator I Was Looking For
Product arrived on schedule, properly crated and in excellent condition. Simple assembly took about 20 minutes. I added gas and it started on the third pull. No problems with this very nice unit.
Pros: Price, Durable, Easy To Use, Features

Excellent Generator
I bought this because I was moving to the mountains where there's no electricity and I needed a generator while I setup a solar system to power my home. Needless to say it's getting a workout, now I didn't get carried away but I am using a microwave, furnace, refrigerator, water heater, lights and home entertainment system complete with a DVR. I've learned to be conservative with my electric needs but this generator has, is running like a champ. I keep the oil changed regularly and use Dura... more

Very Good Generator
I looked around for awhile and I stayed with Generac due to the name brand..I am very pleased with the unit, especially the easy controls that my wife has no problem using as well. The service from EGD was very good they shipped the generator to me in a very short time and the delivery company put it in my garage without hesitation..Highly recommend the product and EGD..
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Reliable
Cons: Little loud, but manageable

Great Value
Very impressed with the quality of this product. After assembly and topping off the oil and fuel, started on first pull. The best feature is the choke, run and shut off all by a single controller
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations
