What People Who Bought The Generac 7117 Love About It
“Great product. I bought it from Puerto Rico after Maria and this Generac give me 10.5 hours with the 1.2-gallon gas tank working a refrigerator, 3 fans, lights, TV and Directv box. Very quiet and easy to use.”
“Got us through the hurricanes of 2017 and was super quiet, we went to sleep with it on every night without issues. Very easy to start and run. Absolutely awesome product, will be buying a second one with the adapter.”
“I love this little generator. Perfect for my power needs and super quiet, was far less noisy than I expected. It took me a little time to understand my unit and its personal nature, it need to be choked for some time before turning the dial to running position, even when the generator has been running for a while and well up to temperature. After that it runs without fail.”
“I’m extremely pleased so far. Out of the box, it was easy to remove the side panel to add oil and get it ready to run. My model came with a bottle of Generac 10W30 oil (the correct amount for the crankcase) and a handy funnel that also serves to drain the oil. Remarkably, it started on the first pull after adding fuel, using the choke for only a few seconds. I was quite impressed with the quiet operation in both normal and “eco” modes. I plan on running one take of fuel through it and switching to a 10W30 full synthetic.
I tested several appliances/tools successfully: an energy star compliant side by side full size fridge and energy star chest freezer simultaneously (energy star rating matters a lot, as to whether these portable generators will start and run them), also tried a 1500-watt heater, 4-gallon air compressor…all successfully. I’ll try to update this review after some long-term use.
I researched many of the 2000 watt to 2200-watt portable inverter/generators and chose this one based on the extra 100 watts of running power over the 2000-watt models, even though this one is just a few db’s louder, while still being lighter than competing 2000/2200 watt options. it also has a slightly larger fuel tank, with a claimed 10 hours plus of runtime on eco which works well for situations that require clean minimal power for long periods.”
