Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installation The installers at ECI did a very good job on the installation of my generator. I would highly recommend them. They were on time and did a very professional job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has all the features that we wanted and more We have wanted one for along time. We are Senior citizens and it is a big task to drage the generator to my hook up in the garage, plus having enough gas to potentially last the power outage. If something happens to me my wife will not have to worry about power. The salesman and the technicians were very professional and courteous. We could not have been more pleased. We would recommend to anyone to buy your product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from transaction was flawless Purchase was easy, Installation was flawless. The only thing I would tell people is to do this on a spring or fall day because the power will be off a few hours also unplug computers and tv and other devices and notify your alarm company

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Generac!!! My Generac installation was completed 2 weeks ago. This morning it passed the real test, the power went out and Generac went to work right away!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product I had this professionally installed when my new home was constructed. It is pretty straightforward to use and operate. I have a power outage since living in the new house and the generator ran fine. It seems like a good value. I would give it more stars if I knew how it was going to hold up in the long run, but so far I have no complaints.
