Generac Electric Start Portable Generator, 17,500 Watts is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 110.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product I purchased the GP17500E to replace a Generac 15KW/22.5KW generator that I purchased new over 15 years ago. It is noticeably quieter than my old unit ( which still functions perfectly and is now my emergency backup ). Being that we live in S. Florida, having a reliable generator is extremely important. I had numerous brand options, but chose to go with a brand that has served me flawlessly for over 15 years through many hurricane related extended power outages. When you really NEED a generator to work; you will be glad you purchased a quality brand like Generac. I now own 4 Generac units. Two GP3600's for running several small window AC units 24/7 and my big GP17500 and my older 15KW model. Due to limitations on fuel storage, we only run the big unit 4-5 hours a day.. the little units will keep us at a comfortable temperature all day and night powering the window AC units using much less fuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Piece of mind I opted to buy a portable home back up generator opposed to a built in because of the versatility. It will do the job of a built in but I have the option to use it for other things as well as loaning to someone else if I haven’t lost power in the event of a hurricane or other natural disasters. Upon delivery I was impressed with the ease of set up and overall performance of the generator. I expected it to be very loud but was actually surprised that it was not unbearable. Overall very happy with the purchase and not as anxious with the upcoming hurricane season starting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The GP 17500 is a GREAT UNIT Decided to go with this unit instead if a whole house generator.This unit will supply the power we want plus it's portable. A lot cheaper that installing a whole house generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed Bought the 17.5 KW to run my whole house, including the well. My wife is dependent upon ventilators to help her breathe and I needed a generator big enough to run the well and AC units since we have several power outages a year due to hurricanes and storms.

Is this generator fairly quiet

Asked by: Bethwright
As there is no industry standard set for testing the sound output ratings of a portable generator, we are unable to provide decibel ratings for any of our portable units. However, with the low-tone muffler that is featured on many of our portables, we consider the sound output of these units to be comparable to portable models of alternative manufacturers.
