Generac 5943 GP7500E Review
The Generac 5943 GP7500E is a requirement in the world we live in today. Everything is much different that when our grandparents were young. No TV or air conditioning was the norm in those days but try and keep your kids entertained without electricity in our modern society and a small riot ensues. Before you find yourself faced with a family that does not understand the meaning of ‘no power’, take out an insurance policy in the form of a portable generator. The Generac 5943 GP7500E is the perfect size for having on call when there is a blackout, storm or an accident that claims a light pole. Bring back some normalcy to your routine by being prepared when the electricity fails.
A compact design that measures 28 ¾ inches long by 26 ¾ inches wide makes the Generac 5943 GP7500E the perfect size to station outside of your back door and out of the way. Because the unit is gas powered and not Carb or CSA compliant, it cannot be used within living spaces. However, for emergency use, this is a great way to power needed appliances and outlets by using a heavy outdoor extension cord. Older generators that operated on diesel would smoke and throw hazardous fumes into the atmosphere but this unit runs on gas and only has a noise level of 70-75dB, far less dBs than poorly designed diesel units.
This portable generator provides dual-purpose usage by sitting on wheels for easy transport. Take camping, to a job site or an outdoor sports event that runs well into the evening hours. With a steel tube housing that is heavy-duty, you won’t worry about damaging parts. The circuit breakers are covered for added protection and an hour meter lets you know when time is running short. The Generac 5943 GP7500E is designed to run 12 hours at a 50% load capacity but users have commented that they have used for as long as 33 hours without a problem. A maximum wattage of 9.375 kW will run several electrical items in a home but probably not everything. Camping, however, it the perfect way to enjoy all the power needed in operating the electrical items found in a RV or small trailer.
Generac has been in business for over 50 years and is known for producing the first revolving field alternator. Milwaukee Magazine awarded Generac “Best Places to Work”, a sign that employees take pride in their work. The two-year limited warranty further confirms the fact that this is an outstanding company by standing behind the materials and workmanship of the Generac 5943 GP7500E and many other models. All components of the engine and alternator are 100% covered on labor and parts and there are many Generac Authorized Warranty Service Dealers located around the country for easy servicing needs. An American-based manufacturer, Generac continues to use new technology to deliver the latest operating generators that best fit the needs of the homeowner and commercial businesses.
Generac 5943 GP7500E Customer Reviews
Reviewers have different reactions to the Generac 5943 GP7500E, depending on how familiar they are to generators in general. Any generator is not designed to replace a permanent source of power and this compact unit gives a lot for being a portable piece of machinery that is reasonably priced. One consumer gave it a real test when power was out due to a snowstorm in Connecticut recently. By using a NEMA 30 amp plug, he was able to plug directly into the home’s circuit board while keeping the unit in an outside shed. While the noise from the unit running cut through the deadly silence of the neighborhood, this was one family that was grateful for the dependable power source. Another reviewer states that the electric start with recoil backup is simple to operate and easily runs 2 sump pumps, a fridge, freezer, water pump and a few lights without difficulty. There have been a few complaints regarding first time start up use and a trip to the dealer was in order. Dissatisfaction is also noted from first time users that expected a small portable generator to carry all electrical needs. Always test your Generac 5943 GP7500E unit before an emergency situation arises and determine your wattage output ahead of time.
