Rated 5 out of 5 by from First class product I just had this installed recently and the whole experience is top notch. I ordered online and the company delivered it well-packaged -- sturdy, wrapped, boxed, secure on the pallet. Once I moved this beast into place (by myself!) my contractors had it running in a few hours. The activation was painless and the unit started right up within 2 seconds of pressing the button. I like that you can upgrade with options like the fascia or the cell phone monitoring equipment and aren't forced to pay for them. Inside, the 16kW is super clean, clearly documented and very well-made: fasteners you might want to get to are accessible, directions are clear and complete, maintenance points are high-visibility orange, nothing loose or hanging, HOT areas clearly labeled/stamped. Just a nice product to gawk at for those nerds like me who are so inclined.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! My wife and I have been wanting to get a whole house generator for some time now and we finally pulled the trigger. This unit has only been installed for a little over 24 hours at this point so I cannot coment on longevity yet but the quality of the product appears to be really good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too early to tell. Too early to tell how well the product will work. It was installed and professionally and efficiently. Hopefully, it will perform well in adverse circumstances.
