Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product I bought the XT8000 series with EFI but it wasn't on the list to submit a review. The unit was delivered in a timely matter with no damage. It was easy to put together and fired right up after adding fuel and oil. I've only run it a couple times for an hour with a oil change each time just to break it in. It runs great and is quieter than my neighbors that is half the size.I'm sure I'll be completely satisfied when it actually comes time to use it. I would recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Home Generator. Manual leaves a few things out. Although we've only had the generator for a couple weeks it's already proved its worth. Sturdily built this champ can take it. We opted for a portable instead of a whole house so we could take it to our homestead in MO. Took me awhile to get power running because it wasn't clear the 240 circuit breaker was the breaker for the entire electrical panel not just the 240 breaker. *facepalm* I wanted to get a maintenance kit but couldn't find the one I needed for my particular model. Anyone know?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality product with a great reputation After 5-6 months or research, I selected the GeneracGP8000E for a whole home emergency backup system, had it installed and am very pleased with this purchase. It is easy to start and maintain, and surprisingly easy to move around given its weight. It's noise level when running is satisfactory and I am looking forward to a worry free winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GP 8000 I owned a Generac 5500 for 15 years so I decided to buy a new, larger one. Great product Except for the Electrical Cord that was included in the carton. It is a cord for contractors to use on a job site. If it were used as a cord for home use, one would have to snake it through the door and attach 3 additional cords to it to operate 3 devices. MY HOME is wired to accept my Generac through my main service panel. Now I have no acceptable cord.
