Generac 5975 - GP5500 5500 Watt Portable Generator, 49 State / CSA, 5975 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 817.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be sure to periodically run it. When I've been able to get the generator running, it works great. I have discovered gas gets stale quicker than I expected, and it is important to run the generator periodically to keep it in best shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great running product This product always starts on the first pull. Ran two refrigerators and the tv and a game system for my kids. Great product. The handle folds easy with a push button unlike other brands where you have to dissemble for storage.
Date published: 2019-09-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runs like a champ Bought the 5500 during a major northeast ice storm. Power was out for close to 5 days, and I was desperate. Started right up nicely, and used it to power the fridge, chest freezer, bullet heater, and some essential lights. Gasoline generally lasted around 12-14 hours per 5 gallon tank. No issues whatsoever, and I'm happy with my purchase.
Date published: 2019-09-22
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor carburetor design/manufacturing, broken plastic choke butterfly valve pivot pin. Planned to test the generator in preparation for the potential hurricane. Very poor carburetor design/manufacturing, broken plastic choke butterfly valve pivot pin, plastic choke lever. Very disappointing customer service, no support. Less than 10 hours on a 3 year old, perfectly maintained GP5500, flipped choke lever to start the unit and the plastic butterfly valve pivot pin/connector snapped. GENERAC only sells the entire $75 carburetor assembly, not the 25 cent plastic part. The generator was typically very difficult to start and particularly noisy when it was functional.

For home use will this run 3 refrigerators, a 51 inch tv, a portable a/c unit, and a couple small fans?  I have no clue when it comes to a generator..I am a female

Asked by: DonnaJohn
Generac's GP5500 portable generator, model number 5939, features an continuous AC rated output of 5500 running watts and a rated VAC amperage of 45.8 amps at 120V and 22.9 amps at 240V. We would recommend ensuring your connected loads not exceed these particular ratings. If you are unsure of the power output requirements of the loads you have specified, we would recommend working with a certified electrician in your local area to ensure you are able to acquire the right generator for your needs.

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.
