Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality, ease of operation Our new unit was installed today by an efficient, professional and extremely courteous team. This new generator gives our family a peace of mind with the upcoming northeast winter. I have recommended this product to many of my friends hoping they will realize the value this generator will add to their home security. I should have made this decision five years ago, yet so happy it is installed now !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product seems very simple and efficient. Redline elec. installed my generator, they were prompt, very courteous, very efficient. They worked in pouring rain and still worked like pros. I would hire them again, if I had to. The owner of the company was right on top of things, if I had questions, he was right there. He also was prompt and courteous. I was happy with the price. Good company to do business with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac made it right Our generator was installed by a local company and was not working when they did the start up. We were informed parts needed to be ordered. This was not acceptable for us as we paid for a brand new unit, not one that would be repaired (refurbished). After speaking to the installing company and Generac and voicing our concerns that we feared paying so much for something that was broken and not in new condition, Generac came through and permitted the installer to swap out our unit for another new one. It started immediately and is working as it should. We now have peace of mind if we are hit with a power outage here in the Gulf. Thank you Generac and everyone that I spoke to that day. You were all so kind as we were so upset. Your assurance that you would make it right was spot on and the immediate action was much appreciated!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sleek and sturdy unit with emphasis on feature and piece of mind After living thru hurricane Sandy, this generator will provide a sense of security knowing that heat /AC Will not be lost and food will not go bad in the fridge and freezer. Lights and hot water will be there even when the rest of the neighborhood is dark. It runs a weekly self test and is monitored remotely. Relax knowing that your entire home will be powered by this unit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the bestime design General Guardian are designed and build with only two pole generators. That means the unit has to turn 3600 RPM all the time even on idle or almost idle. If the generator is 4 or 6 pole then instead of 3600 RPM it will turn 1800 or 1200 rpm. This means better reliability, longer life, lower noise and less fuel especially on idle. It is time Generac manufacturer to start making more efficient product. And not why with inverter generators. Guys, you are still in 20th century.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My first Generac was a 7.5kw for a large home of about 5K sq ft. Worked fine for about 16 years, covered 70% of home functions - generally more than enough to be comfortable and survive. Was rusty and finally a board failed. The new model is a 10K wifi capable unit. Looks great, works great and takes care of about 90% of our home, which again is more than enough - about the only thing not covered is the AC, but since I am in Northern US - not a big deal! Just Super - get one - you won't be sorry.
