Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE GENERATOR WILL PROVIDE US WITH SECURITY! My sales agent said that he will contact you regarding our free $500.00 Inverted portable generator. The service provided by Stanley Mayper was superior at best. Being a non-generator person; Stanley took the time and patience to help me and, it was very effective...THANKS! Mr. Johnson

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Money well spent It's the best peace of mind you could ever own. Never having to worry about a power outage again is an incredible feeling. You can't go wrong with owning a Generac.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product looks good, good value. Manufacturing quality poor. I like the unit and seems to be a good value, but had quality issues. Received 2 units because first unit had a manufacturing defect with the transfer switch. Request another switch but policy would not allow so I had to return generator and switch. Secondl unit was fine but when I applied power found that the generator was already activated to run in auto and did not understand that this was already performed. Unit ran ok. Cover on the battery compartment had one bolt stripped (quality issue minor). Unit started right up and ran well. Main complaint is assembly quality control. Contacted service and supplied video of transfer switch assembly problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Having a quality product that has automatic features and includes enough circuits to supply power not only to critical areas like heat, refrigerator and water but also covers adequate lighting to primary areas of our home. Being able to have this during future storms that happen too often has provided us with a positive feeling. If we never need it is like having an insurance policy and worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product fits our needs. We got a 7.5 KW Propane fueled Power Pact generator. The unit is one which we felt would best meet our needs in case of a power outage. It is a compact unit which seems to work very efficiently although the only time it has run was at startup and the once weekly maintenance runs. Still, I recommend these units to anyone needing power outage backup. Whether you have a small power need or a greater power need, Generac has a full range of generators to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for anyone The standby Generator for free was a huge incentive for us in purchasing this Generac.We are retired and every penny counts. It is attractive, not loud, and what a relief to stop worrying about losing power. I think all new homes should be built with these.
