Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working Flawlessly We had this generator installed most recently and the following day experienced our first power outage of the winter. All functioned flawlessly! So glad we made the investment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not enough time with new product My opinion is clouded by my 5 year history with my first generac.. same 7500 watt propane generator, but assembled vertically. the new one is horizontal. I had 4 major components go bad on me. Only one was under warranty. automatic transfer switch, control module, starter, and finally the generator itself. I only bought another generac because it would have cost too much to deal with the other peripheral issues. I'm not a fan! I called but had no legal recourse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not recommend Purchased this unit in August 2017 through a Solar company. Had the solar company install it. The unit has not ran properly since it's installation. The generator has gone out twice since being installed. Generac refuses to warranty the unit since it is being used for off grid purposes, even though one of their engineers recommended it and said it could be used for such. The only one that has been of any help in this is the Generator repair company and they are not happy with the response of Generac.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible customer service I spent good money on this generator and it sits in my yard inoperable. Be aware that Generac offers minimal customer support if you encounter an issue with your generator. The extent of their support is “turn if off and back on again” by an under trained customer service agent. They will then provide you phone numbers to third party contractors in your area. It’s then up to you to try and arrange someone to come out and take a look at it. In my case this still has not happened as these contactors put you at the bottom of the list bescause their not interested in warrenty work. My advice spend the extra money and go for a higher quality product. Be sure to look into their customer support. An expensive lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit and runs very smooth Got it hooked up today, runs great and is quiet, looking forward to having it when the power goes out. I wish I had bought a bigger unit, learn from my mistake and do you homework... how much to you need? Do your need a whole house unit? Can you get by with only 8 circuits? I wish I had purchased this a long time ago. If you're in the market for a generator I recommend a Generac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to have it installed It took a while to get the generator installed but now that it is, we feel more confident about a potential power outage. We have had two (under five minute) outages and our confidence has grown each time the system kicked in.
