    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Power/ Hard to Start I have had this Generator for 3 years and have only used it for a few hours. The Generator has ample power to run my lights,furnace and even my well pump. I travel for a living and my wife is home alone frequently. It is a heavy unit and even with handles and wheels it is a little difficult to move around. It has a big motor thus it is not the easiest pull start I have used and she finds it difficult to pull over. I try and run it every month for 30 minutes but it still is takes many pulls before it fires up. I use stabilizer in the gas and before every winter season , drain it and add fresh gas. If this generator had a battery start I would give it 5 stars . Overall it is an excellent generator once it starts.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac GP 5500 Just went through a 52 hour power outage with -37 celsius temperatures . Luckily I was able to borrow a generator to get me through for two days. The next day we had another outage and after doing some research headed to Home Depot and bought the GP5500. I have used it a few times in the last week and I'm impressed with the output and ease of operation. Went with the 5/20 synthetic oil because of our cold temps. Highly recommend this generator and good bang for the buck when you compare to other generators.

    Can you store this inside for long periods inside say in a basement?

    Asked by: Dallas
    Ours is stored outside under a deck.  As it has some residual gasoline in it I don’t know if it would be safe to store it inside a house.  It’s a powerful generator and we are happy with it.

    what is the dBA range for GP 5500 Watt Portable Generator?

    Asked by: Anonymous
    As stated previously Generac does not release this information but according to Consumer Reports this generator is fairly noisy at 23 feet so expect it to be in the high 70s or about as noisy as a 12HP snowblower. Noise is always subjective however when it is not measured.

    We do provide maintenance kits for our units that we sell online; however, you'll need to know the make and model number of your unit to know which one works best.
