Just what I was looking for
I was looking for a dependable generator for home back up for basics, fridge/freezer a few lights and possibly my TV. I was also looking for ease of start up. I am a woman and this generator is perfect. Easy to start and maintain. Everything I was looking for.

Outstanding value and quality
Bought this for camping. Use it to run lights, music and coffee maker. Needed something easy to start and dependable. Two 20 amp outlets just fine.

1-2 pull start up, ran nearly 12 hours 1st day on the job. Easy to transport.

Just what I needed, when I needed it.
Ran my freezer, fridge, and sump. It was not the generator I wanted. But when water is running in. I bought the last one on the shelf and I could not be happier. Ran for 72 hours straight without a problem. Also turns out I got a screaming deal. 25% off retail.

Great purchase
This was recommended by the salesperson and as we stood in the checkout line another customer told us how happy he was with the one he purchased last year. It is easy to start and operate. Makes washing lawn equipment easy. We're happy with our purchase.

We got tired of being hot and sitting in the dark. Unpackaged unit and filled with supplied oil and added fuel. Came with choke in the on position and started first pull. Runs lights, fans, tv, and cell chargers easliy. Not super quiet but not loud for what it is. Very happy so far!!

Very quiet and good on gas
I bought this generator to keep our fridges going during a 4 day power outage but I was able to do more. It also produced enough power to also run with the fridges a few lights, or my water pump or my sump pump. It's also light enough that one person can handle it quite easily. It starts very easily so practically anybody could start it. Great generator for the price.

Pros
Powerful
GP3250
I intended to use my generator (not a 1500, but a 3250 - but they did not list mine, although they asked me to review it) for outdoor work where electricity was not available. Was heavier than what I really wanted, but nothing lighter in this class. Starts easy and is VERY quiet.

Great value
I am a female, own a home and needed a generator I could handle in an emergency. I am able to move this generator, fill it and start it with no problems. It is reasonably quiet. It runs for a significant length of time without needing a refill (+/- 6 hours). During a weeklong power outage during a tropical storm, it kept my refrigerator on, my sump pump going, some lights on and I was able to charge my cell phone. It did everything I needed.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
