Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Generator I just had a 16k installed and the next week we lost power. The unit turned on without a glitch and everything electric wise was running normally. For the time it ran, I calculated it used about 1 gal of LP per hour. That's almost as much as my little portable used! And, it was quieter, too. A little investment for a lot of peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install looks great. The generator was easy to install, took less than a day to do. We live in a rural area outside of a small town, our powrr grid is great,but if something should happen I have worries now, that I own a guardian.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All of the components show good quality and workmanship. Should last a long time. The team that did the installation knew what they were doing. The representative that I dealt with, Chris, responded with no delay. This means a lot on any project. I will recommend this product and business to all of my friends. It will be a great relief to not have to worry anymore on power outages and portable generators. THANKS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of power Stan, Nick, and Scott was like a well oiled machine. One inside doing the transfer and wiring, two outside, one wiring drilling a hole, and one bending pipes and doing gas connections. 4 hours and peace of mind. Come on thunder storms...I'm ready!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good product but additional parts are required for proper installation ... it would be nice if everything was included in the original order. I'm not sure if our issue was with the retailer who ordered our generator or with Generac not providing a clear overview of everything that is included. We were happy with the packaging, price and now the look and operation of the generator. However, when it was delivered, our electrician quickly realized that the parts for the panel were not included. I did not find any detail in the manuals that were available before we purchased clearly outlining all the parts that are included versus what would be required for installation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tickled! Waiting for a power outage. Every detail was as advertised which is pretty rare these days. The unit looks good, runs quietly and is an overall great value.
