Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Love My Generac the only negative thing I would have to say is that it's a little loud

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator works good. Please include the need to register your generator to make it run in automatic in all the supplied manuals and that you have to register it to get the unlock code. Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product is working very well. Although we have not needed it for any length of time, now that it has been operational for over a month...it goes through it's weekly cycle as scheduled. It's been very cold here so I'm please it is working properly. Installation went very well and we had no problems getting it operational.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too soon for total review. Just finished installing. Have not had to use yet. Generator & transfer switch seem well built. I also sold and installed one for my Father(89yrs old). Just waiting for power to go out to see how well they work. Will let you know.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Price is right for some protection Just because the transfer box has eight breakers does not mean you can use all eight at one time. In an emergency this unit will do just fine, five breakers hooked up, gives us heat, water - hot and cold and some lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Investment This unit is well made,nice and compact,a lot quieter than my mobile generator.It is easy to install and comes with three manuals which are easy to follow.We lost utility power just recently during a very cold snap for about six hours.The generator started up and shut down without a hitch.No need to go out in the cold.It would be nice if a battery came with it.
