Rated 5 out of 5 by from This generator is very high tech and state of the art providing peace of mind security. While going over the operation of the generator with the technician from Metro Electric of Romeo Mi, I could see the quality of the product and the design integrity making the generator very reliable. This state of the art product is completely hands free in the event of a power outage as well as automatic when the power comes back on. I like Made In the USA .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit Just right for our 2,200 sq ft home w 3 ton AC. I like the A/C shedding feature, which allows the automatic management of more that one air conditioner, or other high amp appliances etc. The power management takes place inside the transfer switch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the set up Love the set up menu for the first start up. That only thing that was tough is I didn't know what to do with the setting 1-23 hours and I couldn't find it in the manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Installation process went very smoothly. Couldn't believe the installation only took two hours and the our house was without electricity for less than an hour! Also, the installation team was in contact with the propane tank installers which allowed for a smooth transition.
