Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has exactly what I expected it to have. I just had my generator installed, I have not yet experienced a power outage but I am confident that this generator will take care of all of my needs during a power outage. I would recommend this generator and any other generator made by Generac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind, excellent service! Key driver in the purchase was peace of mind of continued critical services which can also be shared with family located nearby. Hearty congrats and thanks to the local installer and service provider here on Cape Cod - RCA Generators. Their communication, attention to detail, and promptness arriving on time is greatly appreciated. Nice to engage with a local company which is true to their word ... not easy to find in today's environment. Congrats to the manage,met and team members!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, peace of mind I lost power last winter 5 times. I have lived here for 19yrs, and have probably lost it 4 times. I got one that will do the whole house. (I told the salesman, I want it to do EVERYTHING, including the night lights!). Today was my final installation, and it ran for about an hour. We're suppose to have a major snowstorm in 2 days, and for once in my life, I am actually looking forward to it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Whole Home Generator! I purchased my unit in 2017. I just got it hooked up(1.5yrs later), and couldn't be more impressed with it! Very well built, intuitive controls and function, and very quiet. I like the programmable settings on the unit for test runs. I have a modern 2000 sq/ft home, and the 9kw unit will pretty much run the whole house. I just have the essentials moved over on the unit, but have plenty of power for more additional circuits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money I live in an area where power outages are frequent. This product NEVER self starts when there is a power failure. Has it been serviced? YES! Too many times. It has never been fixed!!! Always the same "under voltage" failure mode!! Oddly enough it will manually start . If Generac would allow the motor to warm up and come up to speed before measuring the output, the generator would probably run BUT they don't. Now, after 3 years, the transfer switch has failed. I would not recommend this trouble ladened product to anyone.
