GP Series 5500 W Portable Generator - 389CC - 4 Outlets/120V is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 779.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fuel Guage Leaks if tank is overfilled or unit is on unlevel ground I won this unit in a raffle so I don't guess I can complain much. My previous Generator was a Coleman Powermate 5000ER so thats what im comparing to. I don't like the steel fuel tank it looks rather cheap especially the fuel guage which leaks fuel if the tank is too full. I guess thats why they tell you not to fill the tank up to the filler neck. The unit is also somewhat hard to start when cold and the choke rod feels as if its about to break when you try to push it in. once its running it handles a load quite well. The unit is heavy in comparison to other units of the same output which makes it a little difficult to load into a truck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value for the money During the Sandy storm we used our GP5500 to run a portable heater, 2 refrigerators a few lights, TV and cable box and an occasional hair dryer. We did have to alternate some of the appliances so that we did not overload the unit.We used a 30 amp cable with 4 outlets bought separately to run 4 appliances leaving the other GP5500 outlets unused. Overall we are very happy with the generator. We really used it for only the essentials and to keep informed on what was going on elsewhere in the northeast. I would suggest the 30 amp manual transfer switch kit to avoid the extension cords, that is my next investment!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product ; minor complaints This is a great product ... bought prior to Hurricane Irene to replace an old inoperative generator. And it has done what we bought it for. It is not perfect, though ... Some good points: - starts on one pull - has a muffler (wow - quiet!) - has wheels and a handle - has digital hourmeter - has rubber covers for unused outlets But it has some shortcomings, too: - twist-lock for the 220V cable is very difficult (impossible, in fact) due to the "seat" for the rubber flap - poor manual (incomplete, unclear and/or conflicting setup information and incomplete parts description) - outdated (?) manual (flashing icon on display is not identified or described in any way). - Dreadful support web site. Would I buy it again? Absolutely. But Generac, please fix the ridiculous issues described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great portable for the price. Just set up my new Generac GP 5500 watt today. Started on the first pull and ran perfectly. I am now powering my entire home with this generator. I do have gas heat, gas water heater, and gas cooktop. The only thing I cannot power is my electric oven. This generator is well made and easy to use. Not the quietest generator I have seen but not the noisiest either. It seems to be very fuel efficient and I am expecting good service as my son has one that is 5 years old and still runs perfectly. For the price you pay I do not think you will find a better generator. The quality of Generac products is well known and that is one reason I chose them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great experience with my first generator. My first generator, procrastinated for years an never got around to purchasing until hurricane Maria, my son convinced me to buy Generac, he has one in another state, read numerous reviews online, found it to be simplistic an everything it says it will do. My family was spared the inconvenience of doing without electricity for four days. I saved hundreds of dollars of food in my freezer an refrigerator. I wished I had purchased one years ago. I live on Wilmington Island Ga.. My neighbors who did not have a gererator are asking numerous questions which are answered in the manual an online on the website. I whole heartily endorse this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but LOUD! I bought this after a storm took the service off my house. (As well as about 45,000 other people too) I have no complaints about how the unit functioned, it did so flawlessly for 3-12 hour days with good fuel consumption. The unit, in fact, kept my basement from "flooding" (no power to the sump) and the fridge / chest freezer. I will now probably use the unit to power our Travel Trailer. One fault, it is VERY loud. I have a neighbor across the street and he heard it. Did I mention that he's (enough to register on disability) hearing impaired? That being said, it did save my house and food. I'll take a little loudness over a ruined house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what its supposed to do! I bought this portable generator to have a backup during Hurricane Florence. Our power went out and was out for 5 days. This 5500 generator ran my refrigerator, deep freezer, all lights in my house, ceiling fans, Keurig coffee maker, fish tank and tv's. Its almost as if we never lost power. With all that hooked up, I still had wattage for more. This generator is also very fuel efficient. Running the essential components throughout the night at about 1,200 watts, the unit consumed about 5 gallons of fuel, thats 8 hours running!! I couldn't be happier with this product. I have to say, General has by business in the future. Thank you Generac!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked like a champ Needed a generator quickly after a late November storm in Michigan. Never having owned a generator before, I bought the Generac on brand reputation alone, and I was not sorry. After approx. 1/2 hour of setup, we were warm and well lit. We had everything that was "necessary" powered and the 5500 never missed a beat. Also, it ran well over the 10 hours it was rated to run on a tank of gas. The ONLY negative opinion is the loudness. while it is average for a generator of this type, it is still a little noisy, but not noisy enough to trade for darkness. Over all, a well built, fairly priced generator with everything you need to get through the storm!
