Great first generator!Review by FEB
I purchased this GP5500 model in the middle of a 6-day power outage. Total setup time took about 20 minutes once I unloaded it from my truck. Unbox it, put the wheels on, add oil, add gas, and GO. I read the other reviews about it being loud. I was hoping they were wrong but to me they were more on the money than not. It is load. Is it louder than other generators? Don't know. But I do know that I didn't care how loud it was since most of the other houses in my subdivision had generators and thats all I could hear anyways. I'll take heat and lights over noise anytime during and outage. (Posted on 6/11/2015)
Easy to handleReview by Tem
We live in the mountains and our power goes off frequently so I bought this specifically for power outages and it does a great job. (Posted on 5/15/2015)
