A Durable Power Supply Wherever You Need It
The Generac 5,000-Watt Generator is an ideal portable generator to have at home, on the job site, or wherever you need power. Its compact frame--33.5 x 26.5 x 27.5 inches (LxWxH)--is fitted with never-flat wheels and locking fold-down handles, so it can easily accompany you wherever you go. And with its hardened steel-tube cradle, this rugged generator holds up well for frequent travel, allowing you to look forward to years of operation.

Thanks to its versatile design, this generator adds comfort and possibility to any situation. Use it to keep your family safe through unexpected blackouts, add some fun to a camping trip, or make your job faster and easier.

Powerful OHV Engine with Secure Shutdown
The Generac 5,000-Watt Generator is equipped with a powerful 389-cc OHV (overhead valve) engine. The engine features a low-oil shutdown system, which prevents engine damage and keeps your generator in good shape for long-term use. It also features splash lubrication and a high-performance alternator, ensuring that operation of your electrical devices is efficient and smooth.

Plus, this generator's sturdy, 6.6-gallon steel tank ensures a full 10 hours of operation at a 50-percent load, letting you relax for hours of use. And with the tank's built-in fuel gauge, you can monitor fuel levels at a glance. Generac even provides you with your first supply of oil.

Plenty of Wattage to Run a Full Range of Appliances
The Generac 5,000-Watt Generator supplies 5,000 output watts and 6,250 maximum watts (for start-up of devices). It has an A/C voltage of 120/240 and a frequency of 60 hertz.

For unexpected blackouts, this is enough wattage to run home appliances such as security systems, computers, and electric range tops. For construction and landscaping applications, it's enough to support devices such as trimmers, belt sanders, and circular saws. And for camping and outdoor events, it can run portable stereos, outdoor lights, and electric grills.

(Note: All appliances should be checked for actual wattage ratings.)

Safe, Quiet Operation with Overload-Protected Outlets
If security and quiet operation are important to you in a generator, then the Generac 5,000-Watt Generator is an ideal choice. Its four 120-volt outlets and single 120/240-volt 30 Amp twist lock outlet are circuit-breaker protected, guarding against power overloads and allowing the generator to smoothly send power to your appliances. And the low-tone muffler means the generator runs at a comfortable noise level that easily blends into the background.

This generator is backed by a two-year limited warranty.

I bought a different brand but similar sized generator at a local store. I bought that generator as a closeout model thinking I found a great bargin.

The problem with this overseas-made generator was that fuel poured out where the carburator mated to the engine. I suspect it lacked a gasket, but it went back to the store pronto as I wasn't going to deal with it.

The Generac GP5000 is solidly built and well made. It just has a solid build feel to it without being unnecessarily heavy or bulky. The engine started up right away and ran fine. It was a shade louder than I anticipated but certainly nothing unusual or obnoxious. I like the fact that Generac designs their alternators and engines specifically to work together and they are not two independent units designed by different manufacturers and simply slapped together.

If you are running electronic equipment off this generator, or most any other generator, you will risk damage to that equipment as this generator, like others, does not produce a clean enough energy wave. So you may wish to consider some type of voltage regulation if you plan on running sensitive equipment for extended periods. Generac makes pure sine wave portable generators called their "XP Series" for running sensitive electronics, but be prepared to pay a premium for these models.

All-in-all, a good, solid, American-made generator that I hope to have around for a long time.

The best I can tell Generac = Guardian = Centurion. So this review is actually based on the Centurion equivalent of this generator purchased at Lowes. The Generac unit here appears to be a step nicer than the one for sale at the big box stores.

My limited experience with portable generators is based on this one and a 5000W troy-bilt generator that we owned before it broke. The Troy-Bilt generator siezed after less than 20 hours of operation in near ideal conditions. It was filled with clean oil, operating on a flat surface, around a 1500W load. Failing so early is suggests a manufacturing defect combined with poor luck. Regardless of the failure of the Troy-Bilt, the Centurion/Generac generator is far superior in nearly every manner.

The generator feels about 20 lbs heavier than the Troy-Bilt model.

It runs relatively quietly for the engine size. As expected, the engine starts easily using the pull start.

The oilpan is deeper (and probably larger capacity) than the Troy-Bilt making it less likely to oil-starve the engine if it is not perfectly flat.

The front-leg of the generator is about 2"x8" in size keeping it from vibrating into moist ground.

The locking handles are long enough to make moving it around easy.

The outlets are overload protected on the unit. However there is no electric on/off switch on the unit which I found convenient on the Troy-Bilt.

The fill hole for the metal gas tank is located close to the side so that it fills without a funnel from a standard 5-gallon gas can.

Also from quick research it appears that this unit can readily be converted to run on natural gas/propane.

I've been happy and impressed with it in the short time that I've used it, and as an added bonus it's built almost entirely in the US. It's worth that extra money.

Purchased to run an outdoor concession stand for football games. Performed very well.
It's a little loud, but ran great at full load for 6 hour stretches throughout the season.
No complaints

Purchased this item the day before Hurricane Irene since all box store shelves here at the NJ shore were empty and it looked like a CAT 2 was headed straight for us. Amazon Prime was GREAT and item was delivered 3 days later. It is now 5 full days after the storm and we still have no power. This generator is supporting 2 refrigerators, 1 large freezer, 2 computers, about 6 lights, 3 corless phone bases, and allows us to charge our cell phones etc. We did also try adding on the basement dehumidifier but the surge after 30 min. shutdown everything until I unplugged the dehumidifier.

We do turn it off every night around 1AM because even though our neighbors are 3/4 acre away they too can't believe how loud it is. Lying in bed at night it sounds even louder than during the day :)... I cannot imagine anyone using this to support an RV in an RV campground. But for getting us through this Hurricane we are thrilled. I personally have been wearing my son's ear protection earmuffs for car racing just to give me some peace for a bit.

Built very sturdy - easy to fill - easy to wheel etc.

I live in an area where the power goes out a lot and this thing comes in handy a lot. I've got it hooked up to my whole house and it handles everything (with exception of electric heat, A/C, or water heater). But if you have natural gas appliances then your good. I got this about a year ago and the only problem I have had is sometimes I gotta pull the starter cord 10-15 times to get it to start.

We bought one of these when the northern part of our state was hammered by tornadoes and power was out for a while. It worked well straight out of the box. I stored it as prescribed when the power came back on. 6 months later, I turned the gas on to start it as a maintenance check, and gasoline began pouring out of the carb. I took the bowl off and the float valve had corroded into it's socket. I pulled it, cleaned it, cleaned the socket, reassembled, and it ran like new. 6 months later....same as before. Same repair. Runs well. There is no doubt in my mind that I will find it corroded in place again the next time I check. Rock solid other than that.
