This is an example of deliberate false representation of the product AND SHOULD BE ILLEGAL!!!!

I am planning on keeping this generator and buying a second cheap and tiny generator just in case this one can't run everything I want to run during a power outage.

When I call GENERAC customer service they refuse to help me because I cannot give them a repair order number.

July 2012 Update: The fuel tank has sarted leaking. There is a leak in the bottom center of the tank. The fuel was dripping straight down onto the generator while it was running. The power has been out for 5 days and the generator had about 95 hours on the meter. It had run out of fuel in the middle of the night, which I attributed to having more of a load than the previous nights. (It usually runs until morning) When I fueled it up the next evening, I could smell the smell of gasoline in the house after it had run for about 20 minutes. When I looked at it, i noticed a spray of fuel from the bottom of the fuel tank, right in the middle spraying down onto the generator.

After the break-in peroiod, I drained the tank, ran it until it was dry, drained the float bowl and left the tank open for a few days to get rid of any fumes. The tank was completely dry inside for storage. I keep it in the garage, completely dry and there are no signs of rust in/on the tank. I am assuming that the steel tank developed the crack from the vibration during the last 5 days. In a stroke of good luck, the power to the house was restored 10 minutes after I discovered the leak.

To be fair, until the tank started leaking, the generator had performed perfectly. It provided plenty of power and will run all night on a single tank. It's easy to move around and re-fill and has always started on the first pull.

I wish Generac could just send me a new tank to replace this one, but I will have to get it to an authorized repir shop to have the tank replaced under warranty. When I called Generac, they told me to call a local shop for warranty work. If you are thinking of buying one, it would probably be a good idea to see if you have a shop near you where you can get warranty work done.

The generator was assembled, oil and fuel was added, and just like most other reviews state of Generac portible generators, it started on the first pull and ran perfect for the hour I tested it out with my transfer switch and all items I intend to use in a power outage running. No issues at all with the generator. My only issue is with Generac's packaging. Potential buyers should be aware that if buying online where fright shipping is required, there is at least a decent chance your generator will arrive damaged. The first Generac generator ordered was damaged beyond safe use due to poor packaging. This one was ordered though Home Depot online, not Amazon. As it turned out, even though it took 3 full weeks to see the generator, it was a bonus because I was simply able to drop it off at my local store for a refund. Home Depot was out of stock everywhere on this model, so ordered the second one from Amazon and got it in 4 days! Should have done that the first time... The Generac packaging is a thin tight fitting cardboard box. I read of Generac generators being delivered with dented control panels. This was true of my first unit. The panel was severely dented in which also destroyed the electronics enclosure behind the panel, exposing the electronics to the weather. The fuel tank flange was bent at the two mounting points where it attaches to the control panel, a leak waiting to happen. The second generator, ordered from Amazon, faired better. Only a slight push in on the panel that caused no other damage. I pulled it out and all is well. These are not inexpensive items. If I didn't NEED the generator, I would have sent this one back too, but it is safe to use otherwise so I kept it. Generac should correct this with a better box. A simple strip of wood across the panel would correct this issue.Read more ›

I bought this generator in Nov 2011 and still today May 22, 2012 I still do not have a generator. It arrived defective and I brought it to a repair store like instructed by Generac. According to Generac they still do not have available parts from there suppler and that it should be avail shortly. I have been hearing that excuse for since Jan 2012 and they refuse to issue a new generator or refund stating that according to the warranty that they are able to fix it and it does not require a replacement or refund. I guess they can keep your money and generator and not have to do anything about it. I have contacted BBB and they recommended legal action since I still do not have my money, a replacement or working generator. This has to be the most horrifying experience I have ever had with anyone. I order a lot of products on-line but this company is horrible. I did not buy it from Amazon but another site. Just remember that once you put gas in the generator you can not ship it back to the buyer and have to deal with Generac. Read the other reviews on different sites and you will see that this is a common practice with this company. Good luck...

Generator arrived with a broken spark plug boot. Called Generac, and they stated they would not cover any repairs because it was freight/shipping fault. The original box arrived in very good shape with no signs of damage. Our local authorized service provider stated the damage was caused during assembly and not with shipping. After several calls made by myself and our local service man, Generac still refused to pay for repair. We paid for repair ourself. Our neighobr also ordered same generator and had same problem; they also paid for repair themselves. Happy with generator itself, but dissatisfied with Generac customer service. Next time I would recommend the competition.
