17kW Guardian Series Automatic Standby Generator A
Best money I have EVER spent!
I've relied on this 17kw for 4 years, and it's always saved the day. I've been through a few hurricanes and severe storms and the region was without power for weeks, but not me! I don't miss spending each day hunting for gas or gas rationing using my old gas generator. I have a medical condition and now having my whole house running on the Generac is a blessing!

I had the unit installed 24 hours ago. It has impressive features. I have not had an oppurtunity to explore the menu system. I assume it to be as good as described.

We had several outages last winter. We are looking forward to this protection from outages.

I have had this generator for 2 1/2 years. We get a lot of power outages where I live, about 10 since purchase. Each time it functioned flawlessly, including during the 4 day outage from hurricane Sandy. Although I check the oil regularly, I have never had to add any. Plus, the oil and plug change is recommended every 2 years instead of once a year, which saves on service calls if you don't want to do it yourself. Worth every penny.

The housing is sleek and compact, looks great.
It is very easy to access the controls and maintenance areas. Very quiet when running, especially compared to my portable generator I used before buying this unit. I am more than satisfied with the Generac generator.

Hands free operation
Ever changing weather in our area and frequent power outages makes this a great feature for our home. Ease of operation is a plus. Actually this replaced my previous Generac allowing me to have whole house operation.

Very Happy with Choice
This is an attractive unit that simply does the job very well. The weekly exercise cycle is flawless, and I was amazed at how quiet the unit operates during this cycle. Only one brief outage to date, during which the generator started promptly and supplied power almost immeidately and without interruption. Because my home is on the waterfront, I selected the aluminum enclosure . . . glad that option was available. It is a great comfort to know the generator will be there for me when needed.

Peace of Mind
Two weeks ago, we were on a trip to attend to some family matters when Winter Storm "Nemo" blew through New England.
Our entire town lost power, but our Generac came online as expected ensuring we had power to run the furnace and refrigerator alleviating any concern about frozen pipes and spoiled food prior to our return.
A 100 gallon propane tank supplies fuel to the generator. Our neighbor (who also has a generac standby generator) kept an eye on the fuel level for us. When we returned home, he said he was stunned at the high efficiency of the generators. EXACTLY what I want to hear when it may take some time before power returns and road passage and fuel delivery may take some time.
An excellent product!
