Rated 5 out of 5 by EZRYDR Works like a charm
We moved to the 'country' north of Spokane, WA earlier this year and were warned of potential power outages due to weather. I researched portable generators with the goal of buying a high quality unit that could do more than power a toaster and decided on Generac's 10Kw model. We had an electrician wire the house for it early in November, and on the 17th, the area experienced a record windstorm with gusts exceeding 70 MPH. Over 200,000 homes, including ours, lost power for up to 9 days. Our Generac kept the lights on, refers and freezers cold, TVs functioning, and fans working in our propane fireplaces to keep us warm in 15 degree weather. We were the only home within sight that had lights in our area. The genset never missed a beat and had a fair amount of excess capacity that wasn't used. Probably the best investment we've made since moving here.

The 10KW portable is a very nice product. I appreciate the quality, appearance, and value. Product arrived on time and as advertised. Product was easy to assemble and started right up. Very happy with product. No surprises, which is a good things these days. The salesperson was very helpful, the delivery staff was great, even had the manager present when the product was delivered. Generac stood out from the competition. I like that they describe product as a 10000 W 'running' generator. Many others advertise the surge watts first, then the running watts. Very deceiving marketing. With Generac, no deception.

Have had the XG10000E for 2 days when the power went out. We have a well pump, furnace, electric dryer, as well as satellite TV, 2 fridges, water heater, microwave, lights, etc. This powers it all easily, just remember to unplug air compressors, that kicked out the breaker.
Only problem was the factory forgot to bolt down the fuel tank. I need to get four flanged bolts and tap the holes. Also there was only one qt of oil, needs two.

Have had the XG10000E for 3 years now. We have a well pump, septic pump, furnace, electric dryer, as well as TV(s), fridge, microwave, lights etc.. This unit runs it all easily. We don't need it often, but it sure is nice when we do!!
Only thing I would change would be to charge the battery automatically off the engine when it is running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Americandreamdetailing Excellent generator
I use xg10000e generator to completely power my auto detailing business. Always runs and delivers power. Only issue I ever had was with a breaker. I called generac an d the next day a technician came and fixed it. Overall a great product and would recommend to everyone needing a large amount of watts

I bought the XG 10000 basically for power outages at home. It will be used for other things as well. It came assembled with the exception of the wheels, the cushion mounts and the battery cables. The engine was already full of oil and the battery was charged. I filled it with fuel, added some sta-bil gas treatment and off we went. It fired right up and I ran it for a bit. I plugged a grinder in to test it and it never flinched. The accessory kit had all kinds of extra's like spark plugs, oil filter (which was damaged), air filter and all the needed hardware. I called the customer service phone number and told them about the filter and they are shipping one out right away. Thats exactly what I expect of a well known company. Excellence at it finest. I will write another review later if possible when I power up my home with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by don axle problem
generally the generator was a great purchase. very easy to put together and get started. The only problem was the axle is two inches too short. They are sending me another one that i hope will be right., My concern is that it has been nine days so far and it still has not shipped!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You would think that a missing or damaged part would be shipped out pretty quick.Only took three days to get the generator shipped, why so long for missing parts??????????????????
