Rated 5 out of 5 by from The product does have great features. We have not had a chance to use it yet as the electricity has not gone out but knowing it is there has given me peace of mind. I know every Wendsday when it is 5:00pm as it will perform a run. We were grateful for the very knowledgeable company that installed it. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installed The electrician did a great job on the new box, found some wiring issues and fixed it up right. Haven't had a power outrage yet, but the test worked good. I still keep all my computers, electronics and networking on UPSes anyways, 'cause that switch over will take a few seconds. Sure would be nice to remotely monitor the system. I'm wondering how things will integrate with an EV charger or a solar panel system and battery storage system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more worries We had this installed on a Tuesday and then just a couple days later our power was out for more than 24 hours. Generator worked as they said, generator came on within a minute, and shut off when the power was restored! We have two sump pumps, so this is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RELIABLE, DEPENDABLE, ETC This 11KW Generac guardian Series generator replaced my 16 year old generac 8KW unit that worked flawlessly. I can't tell you how many times over those years that unit kicked in to restore our electric. The 8KW unit (propane powered) was still working fine and only had 455 hours on it. I needed a larger unit to support some more circuits in my home, hence the 11KW unit was purchased. I will be donating that unit to a small church or elderly person who could use it in the harsh winters we have in VT. The new unit was in less than 48 hours when a fast moving wind and thunderstorm knocked out power. The generator and transfer switch took over in less than a minute. The unit supports 2 oil fired heating units, the refrierators, water pump and most of the LED lighting in our home. Bob McMac

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind Being without power in a household with a person with dementia is just more added stress to an already over stressed situation. Knowing that I don't have to worry about this has been a worry lifted off of my shoulders. Thank you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind My husband and I considered this for a couple of years and finally we saved enough to get it. No more fussing with starting up the manual generator, worrying if we had enough gas. Chris, our installer went over all the details of maintaining our new toy and actually were waiting for our first blackout lol. Would highly recommend this for those who worry about sump pumps as we do.
