Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Ran this generator for almost 5 months everyday after Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Was the only thing that kept the family from going insane. Absolutely trustworthy and it never skipped a beat. The electric switch stopped working but with the manual start we never went a day without power. Heard a lot of people complain about their generators but we never had a problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Highly recommended brand I have yet to put many hours on this generator so my overall rating could possibly go to five stars in the future. My electrician highly recommended Generac brand of generators. My brother also owns a Generac in a very similar model. He has been happy with his model and tells me the model I purchased will power everything I need at home during a power outage. I feel confident that I now can keep my home safe and warm when the next power outage occurs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price, right features I haven't run this unit much yet so I have no reason to downgrade it. Noise level is a concern because of neighbors. Power quality (voltage stability and waveform) is another concern that I will need to evaluate before I run electronics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality & Price After many many weeks of research online and through fellow friends and co-workers I finally decided to go with the overall top recommended brand Generac. I went to Lowe's to pick up my unit when I get home I was like a kid in a candy store looking at all of the features and how well it was made very impressed to find great craftsmanship and equality is still preserved in these hard working machines. I definitely recommend Generac has the top brand especially flipping in the mountains of New England where power outages are common.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Priced right and had the features I feel is important. The price was within or close to the many competitive brands I reviewed and researched out. I wanted an electric start so my wife could start it if needed in my absence. The main initial wattage output was very important to start the electrical appliances in my home that I feel is needed. Primarily, the well pump, two refrigerators, several room lights, TV, security system and possibly the AC/heat system if really needed. I do not have it set up yet but will soon be adding a manual transfer switch to connect this unit to. Looking forward to providing me the power I need during the next hurricane. IRMA was cruel to us. Thank you Generac !
