Rated 5 out of 5 by from peace of mind My wife has medical issues which require us to have power when we need it. We live in an area where the power seems to go out frequently. Having a Generac means we will no longer have to search for a hotel room at 10 PM in the middle of a January snow storm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My neighbors all had generators... With hurricane season bearing down on us in SC, and with pets and a spouse with limited mobility, weathering a storm in place becomes very important. Many of our neighbors have generators, the exact same thing we just got, and they are all very pleased with installation and quality of the product. I know we will experience the same service and uninterrupted power. We are pleased with service and the installation. Thanks, Transworld.
