Generac 5500 (3.5 stars)
By from Location on Jan 04, 2015

Fairly easy to put together. After adding in supplied oil and filling with gas, I started it with the first pull of cord. Plugged in 1200 watt heater appliance and it worked.
I bought this for emergencies only. Hopefully I will never need it.
The only negative I can see so far, is that it is quite loud.

Generac GP 5,500 Running Watts Portable Generator

The original ad for this generator had an extension cord in the picture and description, the same as the in the ad for the Generac XT 8,000 Running Watts Portable Generator, but was not included. I found this out after I opened the box and when I checked the ad again it had been changed. My email receipt is the only place that still has the picture showing the extension cord.

Be wary of false advertisement.

I warmed up my house during the ice storm for $30/day worth of gas. I ran my furnace, fridge, tv , stereo system , many lights in the house without a problem. It is a little noisy, but the neighbors understood. I sold it next day after the power came back with a loss of $7.00. I loved it, it could run 3 furnaces.If you have a big house , It's going to do the job without a hiccup. I have a small townhouse and a 3500W would do for us.
Strong product and a real life saver for us, especially our 1 year old son. It starts in -25C at the second pull.
