Generac 5939-5500 Watt Portable Generator, 49 State is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 789.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I unpackaged the unit. Assembled it, with relative ease, in spite of cryptic instructions. Put in oil, gassed up and it cranked perfectly. Easy to pull. Ran long enough to make sure output was working and shut down. Ready for SC hurricane season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My neighbours went out and purchased their own after watching mine started up so easily and had the power that I needed. I was so excited that the generator was on wheels and had a handle that easily controlled with ease moving the generator where I wanted to take to. The outlets were an excellent design in this generator with the capability to run separate voltages. One of my neighbor who is a contractor told me that that I made an excellent choice in the purchase of this generator. I will recommend this generator as an excellent choice above any generator that I had prior to this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good unit and my allowed me to keep my house warm and my food stuffs cold! I purchased a portable generator due to a severe wind event on February 24, 2019 in south western Pa. The unit I purchased is not identified on your listings of various series of units. I called your customer service rep and she did a little research. Informed me I should pick the unit that most closely matches my unit. My model is a Honeywell-Generac Model: 0060372 Serial: 8023834A. a 5500 watt unit that has I used it for three days pretty much non-stop and it was totally dependable. I was surprised a little with the fuel consumption rate. I was only serving three devices. A refrigerator, a mid-sized chest freezer and my oil furnace burner with fan. Total running wattage demand 2475 watts excepting any periodic surge demand when a motor might start up. So the load on the unit was unlikely ever at peak output that could cause the fuel consumption ratio that I think I experienced. All in all, still a real good purchase and now I am ready for the next First Energy outage!

Can this generator be in the weather outdoor while running?

Asked by: 12misty
During inclement weather, please be advised that we don't recommend running the unit in a downpour or storm. However if you need to run it in rain or snow, there are a few steps that should be taken. Please note that any damage to the unit due to running it in the rain/snow is not covered under the warranty. 1. The unit needs to be properly grounded. Local codes will dictate what that means for your area. 2. The alternator end and the control panel should be facing away from the prevailing winds to prevent water entering the alternator or control panel. 3. The unit should never be run indoors or in an enclosed area. The unit does need to be outside with a minimum distance of five feet all around the unit (including the top) for airflow.
