Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has worked well with a few exceptions Had the 7.5 kW PowerPact installed a year ago. Recently we had a 2.5 hour outage and everything worked well. Since the installation there were 3 times that it failed to start during the weekly exercise period with an indicated overcrank fault. (Unit tries to start but is unable.) This means I have to manually start and then reset the unit to auto. I'm not sure why this happened and I hope this doesn't occur while I'm away from the house during an actual power outage. Other than these problems the unit has functioned as expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Product is a good value My generator was only installed this week, so I really have no frame of reference. The equipment is compact and takes up very little yard space and it's appearance is neat & actually doesn't draw attention to itself. From the testing that was done, I was quite surprised by how quietly it runs. I doubt I will have any problems with it, but if I do, I'll be sure to let you Know !
