Generac 5939-5500 Watt Portable Generator, 49 State is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 735.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurricane relief Lost power during Hurricane Florence and didn't want to chance the power not being restored before the food spoiled. I purchased this generator from Ace Hardware. Added oil and gas, and started with ease on first pull. Ran two refrigerators and a freezer box for 3 1/2 hours and barely used any gas. Ran it from the garage, it was a little loud, but given the nature of the situation, not a big deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy setup, great power Setting up the 5500 was a breeze. Just had to install feet, wheels and the tow handle. Also, added the liter of oil that came with it. Added gasoline, turned it on, switched to choke, pulled the pull-start twice, and it was running. This unit had enough power to run my three refrigerators and deep freezer through the storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gs5500 I was very impressed with quality of the product. It was simple to get ready for the initial start-up and it cranked up and ran after only one pull. Thanks for making a great product.

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.

We would recommend ensuring any product you intend on operating with Generac's GP5500 portable generator, model number 5939, not exceed the unit's power output ratings (5500 running watts and rated VAC amperage of 45.8 amps at 120V / 22.9 amps at 240V) or the power output capabilities of the unit's featured receptacles. To ensure you are able to acquire the proper product for your personal needs, we would recommend working with a certified electrician in your local area.

I have a miller 220 stick welder. Will this generator run my welder??

Asked by: Anonymous
I couldn't find electrical data on the Miller 220 stick welder, but according to the spec sheet for the Miller Thunderbolt 210 stick welder, the unit requires 43.4 amps input to get the rated output. The locking outlet on this unit can only deliver 25 amps. If the Miller Thunderbolt 210 is comparable to the Miller 220, this unit will not work. You would need a larger unit that can deliver 50 amps through the 240 V locking outlet.
