Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generator works as expected I got this generator to power our whole house and on the install and testing, worked like a charm. The cutover was seamless with only a few seconds delay and reverted back to normal power when reset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST GENATOR ON THE MARKET I JUST PURCHASED AND HAD INSTALLED A 18Kw/ w/ ATUO TRANSFER SWITCH. THIS GENERAC GENATOR IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST PEACE OF MIND YOU WILL EVER HAVE. MY NEIGHBORHOOD HAS APPROXIMATELY 6 OR SEVEN GENERAC GENATOR INSTALLED ALREADY. IN TENNESSEE WHEN I LIVE THE WEATHER IS SO UNPREDICTABLE THAT ITS A MUST HAVE, NOT A WANT. EVERYONE I HAD TALKED TO RECOMMENDED THE GENERAC OVER THE OTHERS. I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW QUIET IT IS WHEN ITS RUNNING, JUST KNOWING THAT YOU WILL HAVE POWER WHEN THE ELECTRICITY GOES OUT IS A TRUE BLESSING. IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT GETTING ONE, GENERAC IS THE ABSOLUTE ONLY WAY TO GO. THE GUYS AT ALPHA ELECTRIAL CONTRACTORS LLC ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST. THEY INSTALLED MINE AND DID A ABSOLUTE PROFESSIONAL INSTALL. KEITH GOFF, MIKE, AND THE GUY AT ALPHA ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS LLC ARE THE ABSOLUTE BEST. THANK YOU GENERAC, AND ALPHA ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS FOR A GREAT GENATOR AND A GREAT INSTALL EXPERIENCE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our Second Generac Had one installed in our previous home. Didn't think twice about getting one when we purchased our new one. Wouldn't want to live in a home without one.
