see larger image).

How Inverter Technology Works

Inverter generators utilize a different type of alternator than standard generators to generate AC power. The raw power produced is converted from DC to AC power by a computer controlled inverter module. The engine speed varies depending on the electrical demand, which significantly reduces noise and fuel consumption compared to a standard portable. The end result is a portable generator with reduced weight and size and power that is ultra-clean, capable of safely powering sensitive electronics.

Lightweight and Compact

The iX Series is up to 40% lighter than a standard generator of equal watts. And the built-in handle makes it easy to move with minimal effort.

FlexPower™ Operation Modes

Use high mode for large loads or battery charging, or eco mode to save fuel and reduce sound levels even more.

What's in the Box

It was originally 4 stars (see below review).

I put gas and oil in it (followed the owner's manual for starting the unit) and after several pulls, it finally started.

Where to begin... I decided to purchase this product based on the Good Housekeeping seal and after comparing this price level of inverter generator against others. Generac cannot be compared to the Honda line of generators. Honda is the king and if you want the best, plan on spending double or more of what you will pay for this unit.

I ordered my ix1600 and it arrived in the usual lightning fast order from Amazon. The generator came in a very sturdy and attractive box from Generac. The generator was very well packed and nothing looked out of order or beaten up once I looked inside. The unit is not shipped with oil so you must take care in adding the proper amount, which is supplied with your new purchase. I then added gas and even cracked open the owners manual to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

I then executed the sequence to start my new generator, and...nothing. Not even a sputter. I pulled out the spark plug as I thought I may have flooded it. Cleaned and dried everything off and tried it again. Nothing. I pulled the plug again, cleaned and dried it and then removed the air filter. I used a shot of ether right into the carb and still had no luck. All in all I spent well over an hour trying to get it going.

12-01-10 - I tried to register the generator online but their website would not accept it as there was some technical error. I called Generac and had a representative enter it for me. I told him my situation and he said I would have to bring the unit to an authorized dealer for the warranty repair. Lucky for me the dealer is close by and they do excellent work. I brought the unit to them and explained the problem. They tried a couple quick things but could not get it to fire. They said they would get back to me.

I live on a property that floods during major rain storms, which occur a couple of times each year. When we found out that Hurricane Irene was on the way, we decided to purchase a portable generator. The storm was to hit on Saturday, and when we went to every store in the area on Thursday, everyone was out of generators. On Friday, I decided to take a chance using Amazon for overnight delivery. I found this Generac 5792 generator, and it was one of the few that was available for overnight delivery (others would deliver overnight, but they wouldn't ship it until next week)... the reviews weren't great, but it did get the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, so I risked it and ordered it for Saturday delivery, paying the $3.99 for overnight delivery (love that!).

Amazon didn't disappoint, the generator was on my porch on Saturday morning... we started up the generator and it has been working great! We used it for 12 hours straight through Saturday night and Sunday during the storm to power our sump pump... then used it Sunday to alternately run the refrigerator, garage freezer and television... and decided today to push our luck and power the refrigerator, freezer, computer, and router simultaneously... still, no troubles, its working great!

So, first thanks to Amazon for getting the generator to me in time.. and thanks to my Generac 5792 for saving my house from flooding, all of our food, and our sanity!

I purchased this unit after doing a quite of bit of research. Price and the 2 year warranty sealed the deal for me. The unit arrived as expected and was very well packed. I put gas and oil in it (followed the owner's manual for starting the unit) and after several pulls, it finally started. I used the generator a couple of times on a week long trip with similar results. The instructions say to pump the cap on top of the unit prior to starting. More often than not, doing this only floods the unit and it then has to be drained of the excess gas. The second trip is where things went south. The unit would only start after over a HUNDRED pulls and would only run on full load with the choke on.

Last month, I contacted Generac and they instructed me to take the unit into one of their authorized repair shops where it has been for over 5 weeks. The shop indicated they are waiting on parts from Generac. I called Generac and got nowhere. Spend the extra money and buy a quality generator because as the saying goes, you truly get what you pay for. I am going to buy a Honda or Yamaha and dump this one once it gets fixed.

After experiencing a power outage during Hurricane Sandy, I was excited to unpack my ix1600 so I could have some light and possibly some heat. It FAILED right out of the box.

I oiled the unit as per instructions, put new gas into the unit and followed the start up procedures. After the engine started, I heard "crackle, crackle, snap, POP!!!" then the generator went into overload without anything plugged into the unit. The unit was brought into the Generac dealer for repair 3 WEEKS AGO! Generac's customer service is non-existant and they don't appear to be standing behind this piece of garbage.

Buyer beware -- this unit is not made in the US as Generac advertises, but China. Save yourself the headache and buy something reliable like the Honda or Yamaha.
