    Comments about GP3250 GP Series 3,250 Watt Portable Generator (CARB):

    Use it to run my Porter Cable pancake air compressor, Dewalt battery chargers and various power tools (Milwaukee heavy duty saws all,dry wall driver, 1/2 inch drill; Porter Cable 7 1/4 circular saw,3 1/2 inch planner, 1/2 inch masonry drill and Delta 12 inch cut off saw all with no problems at all. Usually with the charger and air compressor plugged in and running at the same time. No problems to date and it uses very little fuel to accomplish this. If I had anything negative to say about it, it would be the frame is a bit light, could be heavier metal and stronger, but then again the price could be also.

      Comments about GP3250 GP Series 3250 Watt Portable Generator (CARB):

      While I had hoped to be able to connect my house up to the unit - I ended up just running select appliances and lamps with extension cords during the power outage. [...] We lost power Sunday (Irene) and were without only 2 days before the gen was delivered (Thanks Fedex!!). All up we were down for shy of 9 days. Used Generator for 50% of that time and really did not load it up much (Fridge/Freezer, chest freezer, a few lights). I would estimate we got 16hours for 4 gallons at the load levels we were at which was great. The unit is quite compact and was easy enough for me to lift into the back of our SUV unassisted. Wheel kit worked well too.The unit did have a minor oil leak near the valve cover that seems to have stopped on its own after a day or so. Was delivered with 1/2 gallon of fuel already in the tank (not really a plus - more a hazard for shipping). Unit was nice and quiet when started though tends to get louder over time - not offensive but as loud as my 13hp commercial mower. Unit started up easy (Wife managed with no instruction too) and never missed a beat. There were minimal signs that this was not a spankin new unit and it will keep us going a long while yet. I will be buying something a bit bigger for future outages but will keep this for portable power needs.Many thanks

        I use this generator to provide power to charge a compressor for framing nailers, 5th wheel trailers on-site, etc. It started second pull and runs quiet. [...] add the oil and gas, and it started right up.

        For a period of two years from the date of original sale, Generac Power Systems, Inc. (Generac) warrants its GP Series generators will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for the items and period set forth below. Generac will, at its option, repair or replace any part which, upon examination, inspection and testing by Generac or a Generac Authorized Warranty Service Dealer, is found to be defective. Any equipment that the purchaser/owner claims to be defective must be returned to and examined by the nearest Generac Authorized Warranty Service Dealer.

        All transportation costs under the warranty, including return to the factory, are to be borne and prepaid by the purchaser/owner. This warranty applies only to Generac GP Series portable generators and is not transferable from original purchaser. Save your proof-of-purchase receipt. If you do not provide proof of the initial purchase date, the manufacturer’s shipping date of the product will be used to determine the warranty period.

        NOTE:

        For the purpose of this warranty “consumer use” means personal residential household or recreational use by original purchaser. This warranty does not apply to units used for Prime Power in place of utility where utility power service is present or where utility power service does not normally exist. Once a generator has experienced commercial or rental use, it shall thereafter be considered a non-consumer use generator for the purpose of this warranty.


        All warranty expense allowances are subject to the conditions defined in Generac’s Warranty Policies, Procedures and Flat Rate Manual.


        THIS WARRANTY SHALL NOT APPLY TO THE FOLLOWING:

        • Failures due, but not limited, to normal wear and tear, accident, misuse, abuse, negligence or improper use. As with all mechanical devices, the Generac engines need periodic part(s) service and replacement to perform as designed. This warranty will not cover repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part(s) or engine.
        • Failures caused by any external cause or act of God, such as collision, theft, vandalism, riot or wars, nuclear holocaust, fire, freezing, lightning, earth-quake, windstorm, hail, volcanic eruption, water or flood, tornado or hurricane.
        • Damage related to rodent and/or insect infestation.
        • Products that are modified or altered in a manner not authorized by Generac in writing.

        Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.
