    Using a gas-powered generator indoors can kill a person in minutes. That's because generator exhaust contains carbon monoxide, a deadly poison gas that you cannot see or smell.
    NEVER run a Generac generator indoors??or in partly enclosed areas, such as garages.
    ONLY use a Generac generator outdoors and far from windows, doors, vents, crawl spaces and in an area where adequate ventilation is available and will not accumulate deadly exhaust gas.
    Never store a generator with fuel in the tank where gasoline vapors might reach an open flame, spark or pilot light. Do not smoke near fuel or generator.Many generator parts are hot enough to burn you during operation and while the generator is cooling after turning off.?? Avoid coming into contact with a hot generator.

    My experience with the GP5500 has be very favorable. If there was an option to give the machine a 4.5 star rating, that is what I would have rated it. Because there wasn't that option, I rated it 4 stars. I bought this generator to power essential services at my elderly mother's home in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. It performed very well in the nine days that she was without power and allowed my bedridden mother to stay in her home as she wished. I would not hesitate to by this machine again. Since Sandy, we have had a few occasions to use the machine for much shorter periods of time. It has always started with relative ease. The only criticism I have of the unit is that it is very noisy. Obviously, quiet operation is not the primary concern during an emergency situation. But it is worth noting in that multi-day operation of the unit does impose the burden of having to deal with the noise. I've purchased an extra long cable that allows us to get the machine further away from the house.

    Unit stopped working after 41 hours. Left my family in the dark and cold for 5 days. We eventually had to abandon our home. To say I was disappointed that my standby power source was a very expensive paperweight is an understatement. The unit worked fine for the first 20 hours then started to quit and had to be restarted. Then started happening more frequently and then would not start at all. The unit will start but when it gets to where it should be at idle speed it shuts down. My neighbor and I did all the checks we could. I will say that the unit's fuel system, air filters and carb are easy to get to and check. On the plus side the fuel take is ample and easy to refill. The on take gauge is easy to read. I work for a telecom company and we do purchase these units for our remote cabinets so I do know that the units are usually reliable which is why I did purchase this unit. There seemed to be a lot of vibration and the unit seemed loud. Not sure if that is related to the mechanical issue.

    Let's just say the generac recommended repair facility was not surprised when I brought it in with a leak between the carborator and engine. A common trend regardless of maintenance performed. Have had for 9 months and it is strong and powered 2 fridges, a portable AC unit, sat TV and LED TV, and a fan with no trouble. Ran it for 12 hours and then rested for 2 hours. Fuel tank worked great for sustaining the endurance of 12 hours under the load once the fridges caught up to maintaining temps vice cooling. I ran once a month and it failed this June after testing it again. Started with no problems on one pull every time. Just started it to check before fully filling gas and upon return and filling to capacity on fuel it leaked at a cup every 60 seconds. UNSAT. Being fixed now. Don't know any other generators out there but satisfied that it is a good system that my wife can operate since it starts with one pull of the string. Critical on east coast. Total of 10 days without power during the summer months makes like interesting. Best of luck.

    I bought the GP5500 after doing research on different brands and the wattage I need to run the essentials of my home's backup needs after Irene visited us in NJ. For the price, the Generac fit the bill. I haven't started it yet because my neighbor hooked me up to his. Thanks again Richie. Off the bat, there are a couple of issues with this product. 1. The first thing I noticed is that the data plate to register the generator is on the engine side of the frame that the control panel is attached to. So get on your hands and knees and look under to the right side of the handle. 2. To take the spark plug out to add oil for long storage, you will need to take the GAS TANK OFF. Their rep did recommend that I could buy their specially designed spark plug removal kit but she couldn't tell me how to add the oil. For me, I don't care but for someone without the know how, this could be an issue. that's if you do it at all. Although the GP Series is made in China I heard great thing about this brand and for the features and the price, you can't beat it.

    Four years ago we built an off-grid home in SE Arizona. We had timed our arrival to coincide with the installation of our solar system. Of course, it didn't work out that way. The batteries had to ordered at least 2 months in advance because they were made to order in Nova Scotia, Canada and then shipped by ground to AZ. Well, ours were involved in a transportation accident so the process had to start over. We had a smaller 3500W generator that would be insufficient to run the whole house for the 4 to 5 months that we had to wait, so we bought the Generac GP5500 and ran it daily for up to 16 hours a day for 5 months. The only maintenance I had to do on it was change the oil. After it's faithful service, it was retired to serve as a twice-a-week well pump generator. Something gave out on it last weekend and I was not able to find anyone to service it before I needed to pump water again, so we went to a local dealer and bought a new Generac RS5500. As I type this, it is pumping water for the first time. I do intend to repair the first one, though. Living off-grid you can never have too many power sources. ;)

    Purchased this generator just before Tropical Storm Irene hit Connecticut in August when we were without power for 3 days. Delivery was fast, setup was easy and the generator worked like a charm - except for the hourmeter that didn't work (but was subsequently easily replaced after contacting the customer serivce department), Then, 2 months later we were hit by a freak late-October snowstorm that knocked out our utility power for 6 days. I put the generator to use for a total of almost 37 hours during that period to supply our well pump, furnace, refrigerator, freezer, as well as a few lights, the microwave, a television and DVD machine (since our cable service was also out). It sure made that situation tolerable! I would highly recommend the Generac GP5500 for anyone needing emergency power for their home. The only thing I would ask Generac to improve is to lower the sound level. Importantly, I would stress that users follow all instructions about operating the unit outdoors away from any open windows or garage doors to prevent CO gas infiltration.

    Like the fact that the generator has a NEMA L-14-30 connector...made up some cables out of 10-4 wire and plan to make a distribution box for temporary power. Have used the generator during an outage for a couple of days with no problems...let generator sit for a couple weeks and the carburetor started to leak gasoline...I forgot to shut off the fuel (oops) and shoved it into the corner of my house for about a year. The carb needed to be cleaned since the float stuck...I tried using a fuel stabilizer but failed to run it after I added the stabilizer to the fuel in the tank. As a general practice it is good to start your generator once a month to move some fuel through the engine...if it's not ready to use when you need it...you'll miss your opportunity! There is a youtube video with the disassembly of the carb...tear down and reassembly was quick except for a couple phillips screws that were in ultra-tight.

    Overall, this is a fine generator. Handles electrical loads as advertised, so no complaints from a performance standpoint. Just a couple suggestions: for ease of setup and maintenance, include a funnel for oil filling or extend the oil filler for easier use, make it clear in the setup instructions that the entire bottle of supplied oil should be put in, Also, mention that the oil dipstick should be screwed in all the way when checking oil level. Disclaimer: if any of these were covered in the instructions, then I missed them - my fault. Like most, I didn't read every word of the manual. It works great, but this is one noisy machine. Seems like more noise from the mechanicals than the exhaust (excellent muffler, by the way). Offering a kit to "wrap" the machine, or a vented cover, for quieter operation and weather protection would be welcome. I'd buy one!

    Fortunately, we haven't had a power outage since I bought the 5500 -- Murphy's law in reverse. But unpacking, assembly and startup were simple and straightforward to understand. With the conversational directions and easy pull start, I made sure my wife could start and use it if I was away. Success. If and when we have to put it through its paces, I'll write another review.
