Power outages usually occur without warning. Ideally, a homeowner is prepared with an automatic home standby generator installed and always ready to go. However, if a portable generator is the only option forbackup power during an emergency, the GP17500E unit is the ultimate option, with enough power to run up to a 5-ton air conditioner and more. Also an ideal choice for jobsites with high power requirements. This model features Generac's OHVI engine for extended run times and longer life.

That was 11 months before Storm Sandy.
Long story short, I am very happy with it.
Performed very well during 11 days of outage in Sandy, and numerous other outages.
First of all, it weighs a bunch.
So, the first thing I did was to discard the "foot" and replace that with an appropriate swivel caster, from Tractor Supply.
Now I only push it to move it, no lifting.
That "foot" is probably something the Generac lawyers thought up.
Second thing is that it is loud, very loud.
So, I had the electrician install two hookup spots, one one the driveway, with a 10K Connection, and one under my deck, with the full 17.5 connection. Reason being, that if the power is out for days at time, it is much quieter under the deck.
Reason for me saying all of this is that our deck is up a hill. So I bought a cheap crank model boat winch, and made a crude holder for it under the deck. Then I installed a "Eye-bolt" on the chassis of the generator.
Point of the story, I've had this generator for over 6years. It's a good machine.
And if you run it under low load (1 refrigerator, lights, and TV) it's pretty fuel efficient. It sips gas.
But if you have heavy stuff turned on (e.g. 6 Kw water heater, etc.) it will bog down at about 1 gal/ hour.
It's a good machine.
Adapt it to your needs
Tires flat, completely destroy my spirits as well as my bedridden mother.
I previously had the 15,000 watt model of this generator, and the 17,500 runs noticeably hotter (and consumes more gas) than my previous one. To be expected, I suppose, so no real complaints there. This generator DOES, however, have some nice features that were missing on the previous generator, specifically an elapsed-hours meter built in. This lets you figure out when to change oil without having to guess. The gas cap also has a retainer string that keeps the cap from rolling or blowing away when you add fuel. Small changes, but thoughtful ones!
If I had to choose again, I'd probably still buy this generator. It's a LOT cheaper than having to install a full-house model with its attendant gas piping, etc. My four-star rating would be a five-star but for the initial assembly issues. Generac should know better.
