  • Electric start helps you get started on the right foot
  • Not for sale in California or Canada
  • Generac's own OHVI engine was made specifically for generators, lasts 3-4 times longer than competitive engines
  • Automatic idle control conserves fuel
  • Handle and 13" all-terrain wheels allows you to transport power easily anywhere, even across rough terrain

When the power goes out, it's already difficult enough to get by using even the best generator. You don't need to be limited by your usage options. Fortunately, Generac's GP17500E generator lets you utilize all 17,500 watts in the way that will work best for you, whether it's with the 50-amp high power outlet, twistlock plug, or GFCI Protected duplex outlets. It also features an electric start, so you can stop grinding your teeth in frustration. Some companies think that sticking a "brand name" engine in their generators that it is instantly superior. Generac knows that performance is what truly counts, so they placed their own OHVI engine in this generator. It is designed specifically for generators, and is 3-4 times more effective than competitive ones. Whether you need to move this generator to its place outside your home or for an outdoor event, the handle and 13" all-terrain wheels make transportation infinitely easier. The Generac difference isn't hard to perceive.
