Generac LP Series 5500 Watt Propane Portable
Generac’s new LP5500 portable generator also allows the LP fuel tank to ride within the chassis itself. The generator can accommodate either a 20 or 30 lb. tank (not included with the unit). What makes the LP5500 truly innovative, however, is its revolutionary and unprecedented PowerDial™ that integrates all of the starting and operating controls into a single easy-to-use mechanism.
Located atop the LP5500, the PowerDial has three positions—one to prime the engine, one to run the generator, and one to stop the unit. Instructions for each step are clearly illustrated with user-friendly icons.
Ease of use is also addressed in the stylish enclosure that protects the generator from dirt and debris. This enclosure can be easily removed when users need to perform routine maintenance. The generator’s dolly-style handle and low grab bar also makes the LP5500 especially easy to move, handle folds down for compact storage.
Liquid propane fuel offers many advantages over gasoline in portable generator applications. It is readily available, even during widespread power outages when gasoline stations might be inoperative. LP fuel can also be stored indefinitely without deterioration.

I purchased the Generac 5500W propane fueled generator. It was delivered in about 5 days. The only assembly required were the wheels and foot pads. I added oil(included) and hooked up the propane. I followed the simple starting instructions and the unit fired right up. I would recommend this unit to anybody looking for an easy to use, dependable generator. I chose propane because to the endless shelf life as opposed to gasoline or diesel. Very satisfied.

We purchased this unit to assist our people supporting the victims of natural disasters. What a great unit. It moves well across uneven ground. After a storm, we can find LP tanks anywhere . . . 50% of the backyards have grills, thus LP tanks.
