7kW Core Power Automatic Standby Generator
Have not yet to use it. No storms yet, and hope for none. It does do its weekly test.

After spending 11 days without power during "Winter Storm Sandy" & therefore without heat or water, we decided to get a backup generator. Generac was recommended by several neighbors & businesses in our area. We are pleased with the ease of maintenance - easy to check & change oil routinely, easy to remove the housing to access the generator, nice clean look, noise level acceptable.Since the generator checks itself weekly we are assured that it will be functional when needed.
This gives us great peace of mind.

Good product for the price. Generac promotes quality.Definitely Recommend!
Unit was purchased to back-up sump pump. We had finished our basement and did not want to lose investment. Added protection included refrigerators,some lights and microwave. A few days after being installed we lost power for an extended period of time. The unit performed flawlessly. Since then it runs programmed testing every week as set. Unit has small foot print and very neat appearance.Noise level is not bad. Neighbors are inquiring about the unit and it's performance. They seem very interested. Changing oil can be performed easily. Peace of mind is worth the reasonable cost.Had it installed and it only took a few hours including the tie-in to the LP tank. Recommend! Generac stood behind some minor problems like true professionals.

Does exactly what it's supposed to do.
I installed the generator myself, and it was pretty straightforward. I haven't lost power yet, but the unit kicks in weekly, and seems to be ready for another "Sandy"...

Nice look and compact
Like the looks of the unit. Easy to access the unit for required maintance when required. Have not had a commercial power outage as of this date but the unit had a successful test run right on time.

I installed this generator myself.
After hurrican Sandy, it was clear that it was time to buy a stand-by generator. I had previously researched the Generac 7kw and when Consumer Reports rated it a best buy there was no reason to wait. It came equipped with everything necessary to install (sans the electrical wiring) with easy to follow instructions. Installation was straight forward and I finished in a couple of days. I works just as advertised. I couldn't be more satisifed and have recommended to several friends.

works as advertised
The generator had been installed for about 5 days when the power went out. It occasionally blinks, but this time it was dead and sure enough the generator kicked on. The electric company said they would have power back in an hour and 50 minutes later the power came back on and the generator shut down. So my first 50 minute test worked exactly as it was supose to work. I'll reserve final judgement for an extended test like this past summer when power was out for 6 days. TT
