    I would highly recommend this unit. I was lucky to get it at lowes the day after irene. My power was off for 4 days. It ran my well, tv,gas hot water heater power vent, 3 lightbulbs, refridgerator, chest freezer, dvd player, and laptop. Never skipped a beat. At least half the noise level of my briggs storm responder and used alot less gas.

    We bought this because of Irene, even tho we didn't lose power - a just in case purchase. Our electrician hooked us up just as CT was getting slammed with a terrible snow storm right before Halloween. We lost power and couldn't be happier we had this installed. Kept the furnace, water pump, and fireplace insert running no problem - we even had a few lights on. It is a little noisy - but so was our neighbors around us so we fit right in. Was easy to start and ran smoothly

    I purchased this GP5500 model in the middle of a 6-day power outage. Total setup time took about 20 minutes once I unloaded it from my truck. Unbox it, put the wheels on, add oil, add gas, and GO. I read the other reviews about it being loud. I was hoping they were wrong but to me they were more on the money than not. It is load. Is it louder than other generators? Don't know. But I do know that I didn't care how loud it was since most of the other houses in my subdivision had generators and thats all I could hear anyways. I'll take heat and lights over noise anytime during and outage.
