I hope that I never need it.
I bought this item for an emergency. We have had a few power failures here. Only lasted a maximum, so far, of 24 hours. But in that 24 hours our refrigerators and our freezer had lost some temp. Now when we have a power failure, I will be able to keep everything cold. As for heat in the house, we have a fireplace, so that will not be a problem.

Great product!
I get 4 to 5 power outages a year. I finally decided to purchase this generator. I searched online and in stores every generator available. 5 days after the generator was delivered we had a power failure and the the temp was -5. It fired right up and provided power to 2 space heaters, lights, TV, and satellite system. We turned off 1 heater and cooked dinner in the microwave. The generator worked to perfection in extreme low temperature. The final temperature actually hit minus 9 degrees that night. I have worked with generators in the past and I decided on Generac CP 5500 because of its quality and value for the price. You get what what you pay for and I would recommend this generator to anyone.

' It's no Honda but it works
For the money it's a good generator. I had to adjust the carb after starting it and the spring loaded clip that supports the handle in either the up or down position was installed backward. But heres the thing...it was about 1/3 the cost of a honda,dont get me wrong I would love to have a honda but I could not justify the cost.

Extremely high quality
This is a very high quality product and the price is much lower than the "off brands" sold at [@] This costs about 100.00 less, but is a much better product. Highly recommended! Don't wait till the power is out - it takes several days to get this due to the shipping method.

Worth the investment...
With the recent storms causing power outages and the high heat in the east, this has paid for itself multiple times over. Well worth the investment. Going to install a transfer switch soon to make it even easier.
