Generac 5943 GP7500E 7,500 Watt 420cc OHV Portable Gas Powered Generator with Electric Start
Power the fun stuff or cover an emergency with a GP Series portable generator. Affordable reliability and features not usually found on basic portable models make these a favorite for home use, camping, job sites or outdoor events.
Reliability From the Start
Because of Generac’s focus on power generation, we know how to design an engine that can stand up to the long hours of continuous use generators can be required to run. Cast iron cylinders add longevity, not found on every portable generator engine.
Easily Accessible Controls
A portable generator needs to be ready for use at all times. Generac added maintenance reminders on the hour meter, so scheduled maintenance is easy to track, and the convenient fuel gauge provides at-a-glance fuel monitoring. Many portable models have controls located in inconvenient locations and are difficult to access quickly, especially in the dark. We gave control placement careful consideration, with comprehensive control sets conveniently located for easy access.
Framed for Durability
The hardened steel frame gives our portable generator cradles added strength and are a premium 1¼” thick, a full ¼” thicker in diameter than competitors' models. The addition of integrated brackets and impact resistant corners on most models gives contractors rugged options ideal for job site use.

Got this generator home, opened the box, put it together (took 15 minutes for the wheels, handle and rubber feet), put the oil in, gas and it fired right up on the first 1/2 crank. I was letting it run for a couple minutes and it started to make a racket from the head side of the motor. It wasn't normal. I've heard this sound before and the outcome wasn't pretty. Check all the heat shields (some were bent touching various parts of the motor), etc.. and no dice. So I start looking up service centers. Found one listed on Generacs site and went there. Come to find out, they don't even sell or service Generac. Nice. On my way back home, I started doing some brainstorming (I'm very mechanically inclined). Got home, looked it over again and I decided to take off the valve cover. I found my problem. The rockers were so loose they were just literally slapping the valves. They should BARELY have any play between the rocker and valve and I had tons of room between them. (specs are in the manual). 98% of people would have never found this problem. I tightened both valves up and it purrs right along now. The manual says to check the valves after 50 hours of use, but as easy as it is, I would do it after about 30 minutes and especially if the engine just doesn't sound right.
It rolls around much easier than you would think. Has a long handle and good center of gravity to move around. I wouldn't try to pick up a 200lb generator, but it does move quite easy.
Also be sure you check where your service centers are as you can NOT return this back to Amazon. Sometime it's better for piece of mind to buy some things at a brick and mortar store. That's up to you. Overall, I would still buy it again.
I bought this generator as a result of lots of investigation and even used one for a couple of days. I ordered one through Amazon. It worked for one hour then shut down and is now in the shop. My house was hardwired with a separate generator panel and I've had generators for 25 years. This was a replacement. How can something work for one hour then die? I will keep everyone posted on how I was treated regarding the warranty. This is beyond inexcusable.
I contacted Generac about the battery problem, confident that the product was covered by the manufacturer's warranty. A very helpful customer service representative - George - explained me that the battery warranty expired thirty days after the purchase. Also, he explained me that, even though the product was received defective, I would have to contact an authorized service to be assisted. Generac offered to sell me a replacement battery for over $80. With S&H and taxes the battery would cost be about one hundred dollars. The same battery is sold by various sites online for about $21. It is a shame that a company Generac does not stand behind its products To add insult to injury, Generac tries to rip off customers like me. Shame on Generac. If you are shopping for a generator, I strongly suggest you consider another manufacturer's products.
Unfortunately, I had not read about other customers'awful experiences with Generac before I purchased my generator. Moreover, the price of the product dropped a lot compared to what I paid for it. This was not a good experience at all. Stay away from Generac. I will do the same from now on.
