Product Description

Take the LP3250 along for outdoor events, camping or job site use, or use it around the home for projects and emergency backup. As consumers become more conscious of their green footprint, they look for ways to use less fossil fuel, but ideally not at the expense of convenience. For many applications, propane is the answer. Unlike gasoline, Liquid Propane can be stored indefinitely without deterioration, and safely transported without spillage. Propane is also readily available and is used by millions of people to fuel everything from furnaces to grills to vehicles. This means you wont need to run out to a gas station to stock up on fuel when your power goes out. Liquid propane also emits low carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons and fewer toxic pollutants than gasoline. Liquid propane is also non-toxic and biodegradable. Until now, the only options available in a portable propane generator required the propane tank to be separately carried, where it would then sit to the side of the generator while in use. The LP3250 incorporates a tank holder into the frame itself, so the propane tank sits securely out of the way. This eliminates the hassle of a stand-alone tank and the awkward fuel line that goes along with it. The LP3250 also includes your quart of oil, a wheel kit for easy portability, and a 2 year residential warranty. The propane tank is not included. This unit has two standard 5-20R 120V outlets, and one L14-20R 120/240V twist-lock outlet.

UPDATE: The generator runs fine and I made the decision to skip running it 30 minutes each week. I'm hoping that that recommendation is really a hold over from their gasoline powered generators... as was their (printed booklet) starting instructions! These instructions are different from the decal on the generator...but that decal is small and basically icons and therefor easy to ignore if you have the booklet in hand.

>>>With a gasoline small engine you apply the choke to make the mixture rich, pull the starter cord gently to prime the engine, and then pull to start, keeping the choke on until the engine warms up; with the propane engine you prime the engine by pressing a button for two seconds (you can hear the propane filling the cylinder), apply the choke and pull twice (don't know why), then OPEN the choke and start by pulling. The engine will not run (or start) with the choke applied.<<<

I've been waiting for my electrician to wire up an outside, 220V outlet so I can use this generator to power up selected circuits in my house during a power outage... so I actually haven't powered it up yet! But I have made a couple of observations (below) that might be helpful for deciding whether to purchase this generator. I will update the review later after firing it up.

First the good:

1) Delivery (by contract trucking firm) was very efficient

2) Assembly was easy - even for one person (a second person would have been handy to hold up end while attaching wheels)

3) Seems to be well-built

Now the gotchas;

4) Instructions recommend running generator for 30 minutes.... once a week!

Let's start this conversation with a discussion of gasoline versus propane....

If you have a choice, buy propane or natural gas. A gasoline generator uses 5 gallons of gas for about 10 hours of use. My propane generator gets 9 hours on a 20 pound tank. It uses the same tanks your gas grill uses. It is much easier to hook up a new tank than to fill the gas tank from a five gallon gas jug....who wants to pour gasoline on a hot engine anyway? I also did it because I wanted my wife to be able to hook things up if I am away. Who wants to have to go out and get gas two times a day? Or be forced to own 2-3 five gallon cans of gas? And imagine lifting that five gallon can in the winter outside, patiently waiting for that small nozzle to feed all that gas into the tank. 5 gallons of gas weighs over 30 pounds, plus the weight of the container. 30 pounds doesn't sound like a lot until you are standing outside on a winter night, on a slippery ice covered patio, holding a flashlight with one hand and the tank in the other. Yes, I now own three propane tanks.....but I can store the propane almost indefinitely, or I can use it on my gas grill next summer.

I purchased this generator three days after Hurricane Sandy hit NJ. We were without power from midway through the storm, and the estimates for the return of power were in weeks. I was lucky enough to find one, and when I was offered the choice between a gas or propane unit, it was an easy decision for me. As some of you might have read, the NJ area had issues getting gasoline to the people. With gas stations have 3 hour waits, I had an over two hour wait to get gas in my car, and they limited everyone to $30.

I got this unit during the recent northeast power outage caused by an October snow storm. My other generator when down. I was out for 5 days, 19 hours and 20 minutes. The manuals are not on line on the manufacture's website so there's no valid specification to be reviewed. You have to assemble this item. The orange tank shield is extremely cheesy. The nuts that are inserted to keep it secure pop right out when you move the generator causing a safety issue because then the tank could fall off of the unit. Also make sure you use this in a well ventilated area away from people because I've used 3 different tanks with it and during the operation the unit smells like propane and that's not good. The advertisement says that it will do 3250 watts but in reality using 120 volts it will only do 2400 watts. I couldn't run both my freezer and refrigerator at the same time. It also wouldn't run my freezer using a 10 gauge extension cord. I had to move my freezer to the entrance of the garage to keep it running while the generator was outside. For the money get a gasoline unit that performs better.

I've asked Amazon for a refund and return!

I'll try to make a short story out of a long painful one.... I purchased this unit back at the end of the summer (last week in August 2011), not from AMAZON, which I should have! I received the generator mid-September DOA. I had to schedule a day off to take to get repaired (October 3rd). My wife and I had to lift and stuff this heavy generator into our car and needed help on the other end to unload. It is now nearly two months later and it is just now being worked on because Generac had NO replacement parts! Believe me, they did not go out of their way one bit to make this right (ship a new unit; discount the bad unit, NOTHING!) I had to consistently call and email Generac support just to get them to realize the service shop was still waiting for a part from them. I actually had to rent a generator since that time because of a power issue we had. Generac just doesn't seem to care or get it. Because of the POOR customer service, I would not buy another Generac product, I don't care if it walks the dog or makes breakfast. - One Very Unhappy Generac customer.
