Generators can be called upon to run continuously for long periods of time - for hours, days or sometimes even weeks. Generacís engines are carefully engineered with this in mind, utilizing overhead valve technology that runs cooler, uses less fuel and has a longer life than conventional side valve engines. Generac goes a step further by adding premium features like low oil shutdown and cast iron cylinders, giving our engines even more built-in reliability.
Power the fun stuff or cover an emergency with a GP Series portable generator. Affordable reliability and features not usually found on basic portable models make these a favorite for home use, camping, job sites or outdoor events.
