Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Very impressed with performance of this unit. My wife has Alzheimer’s and we don’t have to worry about power outages anymore. An outage used to be very difficult because we’re on a well and septic system and it’s so nice to have all the other conveniences as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Generator Better than expected. I especially like the WIFI and the fact that the firmware is down loaded automatically. It would be nice to have some additionally functions such as the output load in Amps or KW. I hope to see some additional options in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Just purchased. Glad of everything. Expert dealer, exceptional installers. For heavens sake, they even sowed grass seed. If you are thinking about one, wait no longer cause it will set you back a bit but not having to replace 3 freezers of food you will be happy.
