Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what we needed Being relatively new to the Pacific Northwest we experienced a fair number of power outages last winter. And ,unfortunately, the time to get the power back on averaged over ten hours. This 16kw whole house standby generator has eliminated that worry and hassle. Ours is propane powered (we already had a hookup built in to our new house) and starts up automatically within five seconds of a power loss. Smooth steady power that allows a seamless transition to and from generator power. Perfect for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Pleased with Purchase I am disabled, live in Florida and purchased this generator in preparation for the beginning of the hurricane season. Already it has twice proven useful due to FPL equipment breakdown, I believe that this has been a very wise investment already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really like the appearance and accessibility. The unit really looks great when comparing it to a portable standby type. The generator has been sited, but not yet connected to house. Looking forward to having it available for the approaching hurricane season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac is the Best way to Go!!! Just had my 16KW stared up, cranked up first time. Was very Easy to receive a Generac activation code. Sounds awesome, with cover closed no louder the my A/C unit. I live in a condo, were only quiet natural gas generators are allowed. Great to see my entire Condo with Power, when the circuit breaker was turned off and the Generac kicked on. I would very much recommend the product!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well built and performs flawlessly Unit was installed month ago and have not challenged it yet but have tested it with power off to the house. Logic switch functioned as designed on transfer switch and generator functioned like it was intented. Ran this several times different ways and it never faultered. Highly recommend it
