GP3250 - Works Well!
I'm an electrical contractor and I use my GP3250 frequently. Its light enough to lift in and out of my truck, runs very well and is quiet. Everything I was looking for in a generator and more.

my generator runs well, except for some throttle hunting issues and the GFI plugs tripping too often. Overall the unit works good and is pretty quiet for this type of generator. I was dissapointed to find however, that it is not made in USA.

This unit runs much better than an older GENERAC product that I own & still have lots of trouble with. This unit: Bolts for mounting the front foot rest were full of paint & very hard to start. Other than that, assembly was fine. After adding the enclosed oil & your own gas there were no problems & unit started & ran fine. Much less vibration than the previous older unit, & does not "walk around". Worked great for our last 2 day power outage.

Ran GP3250 for over 80hrs.After hurricane Sandy.Able to run Refridge/freezer,gas furnace,2 small tv's,3 lamps with low watt LED bulbs in them.Also charged cell phones & used computer,not all at once but it did work out. I used multi outlet surge protectors to distribute power.No power for 8 days.Ran gen. on & off for 8 to 12hrs. a day.Not an ideal set up,but it worked.If I didn't have the GP3250 I would have had to leave my home.

Perfect for the price
I bought this generator to run a blower for times where electricity isn't made available at cattle shows. It's compact and lightweight enough to make it hassle free moving between shows. Additionally, it is quiet enough to not give you a headache from hearing it drone all day. The only thing I would change about this is that it lacks an hourmeter. I added one at the cost of about $40, but that feature would have been nice from the factory. Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

I purchased thus gen about a month ago now and i have nothing but positive feedback. I bought this to keep on my truck for job site power and also for taking into the woods to build tree stands. The 27ish amps is plenty for what i am using it for. It is also good piece of mind that if my power goes out i can run my oil furnace and a few other little things. Over all i love it

One awesome generator
There are not many words to express how great a Generac generator is. Choosing this generator was one of the best decisions that I have made even though there are bigger generators this one meets the needs that I have and I wouldn't order any other generator besides a Generac.

What does CSA mean?
Chris on May 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: CSA is an acronym for Canadian Standard Association. This meas the generator is approved to be used in both the USA and Canada.

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.

For the purpose of this warranty “consumer use” means personal residential household or recreational use by original purchaser. This warranty does not apply to units used for Prime Power in place of utility where utility power service is present or where utility power service does not normally exist.

  • Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper use. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
  • Failures caused by any external cause or act of God, such as collision, theft, vandalism, riot or wars, nuclear holocaust, fire, freezing, lightning, earth-quake, windstorm, hail, volcanic eruption, water or flood, tornado or hurricane.
  • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights. You also have other rights from state to state.
