Great generator, excellent dealer support
By Rob Church from Delta BC on Jun 28, 2014
Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
Purchased this generator for use with my camper. As I don't expect to use more than 10-20 hours year I did not wish to pay the huge dollars required for a lower powered but less noise Honda or Yamaha. I did not also require an inverter for the cleaner power as most of the items in my camper do not require clean power and all my electronics, PC, camera etc run through battery charger (so no need).

Price wins with a desire for as silent as possible. Choose this model (which is unique to Lowes) over the GP3250 as it has an hour meter which will be helpful for advising when to change oil etc. The 3250 does not have an hour meter. LAso really like the RV plug with adapter, a very nice touch.

Purchased the generator, brought it home, setup, about 10 minutes, started first pull. Went out camping and used it for ~3 hours over two days. Left it in the bed of my truck and the noise was reasonable as I was in a very large campground. If you are in a small packed in campground I would expect you will be getting the evil-eye from a few folks due to noise.

Unit is heavy and I would not want to drag this through the bush very far by hand but sits low in a pickup bed so some of the noise can be blocked.

Noticed the hour meter was not working. Back to Lowes. No haggle, no questions, wait a week get a new one as they were on back order. Received the new one on the day stated and after 10 minutes I am back to the week previous.

Have not used the replacement yet.

Lowes has a great 30 day return to store policy which I was unaware. This alone will shift my buying to Lowes. The Generator was priced right, has good features and a 2 year warranty. Time will tell but I expect to have this little orange genny for many years.

I used this generator for about 6 hours to power a 10,000 BTU window air conditioner. It did the job very well. It appears to be built well. I was able to start it with just one pull. There are quite a few precautions with its operation. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS from beginning to end prior to starting this generator. T=For its size this is one of the more quiet generators. However, it is by no means quiet . If you are within 15 feet of the generator you cannot have a normal conversation. It can be heard for a few hundred yards. That said, I had it 40 feet from our cabin and with the air conditioner running I could not hear the generator. This generator is similar to the Generac 3250 that is sold everywhere. I believe the GP 3300 is sold only through Lowes. It has much nicer features than the 3250. The 3300 includes an hour mete, and a better k=layout for the receptacle. Overall it it a much nicer unit and is the same of less cost than the 3250.

Just what I wanted
By Lowe's Guest from Chicago, IL on Jun 24, 2014
We''ve only had the generator for a short while, but have already had occassion to use it during an 8 hour power outage. Very easy to use. Started right up with one pull. Have experience with some other similar sized portable generators and this Generac is quieter than those, which is a nice plus. Not exactly quiet, mind you, but quieter than some. Not too heavy and the handle and wheels make it very easy to move around. Overall we''re very satisfied.

High Quality with a lack of features
By Lowe's Guest from Hinesville, GA on Jun 21, 2014
I have done extensive research on this product after I purchased it. The motor is a UP170, manufactured by United Power Co. in China. Generac does not manufacture this motor, no matter how much they tell you they do. The motor is capable of 7hp with a peak of about 5200 Watts but is limited down to 3300 with a startup peak of 3750. I suspect because the motor is incapable of sustaining performance levels at it''s full potential. The motor itself is capable of 27.5 amps @ 120v Which is pretty interesting. The RV receptacle is split across two 14 (13.75) amp breakers, while the duplex receptacles are wired to a single 14 (13.75) amp breaker in the setup. So ultimately your 120 receptacles are on 14 amps (13.75) as it is advertised. The RV receptacle is rated for 25 amps while the standard duplex receptacles are rated for 20 amps. The motor is capable of much more, even limited as it is, and I wish they would have designed it so the duplex receptacles are on at least a 15 amp breaker, or even a 20 amp. Now onto the performance. The performance of this generator is outstanding. It takes 3-6 hours to run out of fuel on a full tank under load. Startup is easy, even when you have to use the choke on a cold start. One to two pulls is all it takes. The tension on the pull string is very low, even grandmother could operate this equipment. I think if you''re doing light construction work, this would be perfect. Or if you need it to backup your house in the event of an emergency. Other than that, this is a very over hyped, over glorified generator. I''d still buy it again. :)

Generator works
By Aristeo U. from City *, ON on Jun 12, 2014
Tried as soon as I picked up from Lowe's, instruction easy to follow, it starts just one crank, a bit noisy but as long it's work I'm good.

Thank God for Lowes
By Lowe's Guest from Graysville, AL, USA on May 18, 2014
Purchased the unit after a tornado hit my community last month. Walked down to the Lowe''s to make my purchase. Not only was I sold a quality product, but the Lowe''s delivery crew helped me carry my generator to my home. They couldn''t deliver it to my home because of all of the downed trees and power lines on my street. Not only did they help me but the community as well by assisting in removing some of the downed trees so that emergency crews do there jobs. I thank God for our neighborhood Lowe''s and there top of the line staff. I NEVER would have expected such concern and service from any store. Thank you so much and you will always my support and business.
