Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Generator for Our Needs This is our third Generac generator for a good reason. Their units simply work, and work well. Our last Generac generator made it through a hurricane and ran for three (3) weeks straight. We felt very comforted knowing that it worked so well, and g-d forbid we need to rely on our generator again, we know our newest Generac addition will be there to carry the load.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Post Generator Installation We purchased this model and the installation was completed about two weeks ago. All aspects of the installation went fine. We lost power on 05/09/2019 and the auto start worked great. My only problem is with Storm Guardian the company that did the installation. One would think that the sales representative would at least pay you a follow up visit to see how everything went. Not in this case. I don’t believe I will be doing any other business with them or referrals to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac 22 kw I would recommend this to anyone. I consider it an asset to our home. We have a handicapped daughter in our home and it will help us to not have to leave our home in certain situations. Thank you Generac for making generators that help to make our lives better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for our application Just built a 6,000 sq ft home on the main street in historic Hot Springs National Park Arkansas and this unit will do the job. Installed reasonably easy and tested perfectly. Looking forward to never using it but given our history here and ice storms fell I will be calling on next winter. I feel better knowing it's there
