Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features. Happy to have generator installed so that I won't have any more power outages. The generator looks like a fine, sturdy piece of equipment behind my house. No power outages so far. I'm also glad I chose the special pad for the generator to sit on. It looks so much stronger than patio stones would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are so excited to have this unit installed and love the features it has. Just had this unit installed. We are excited to have the peace of mind it brings, knowing that when there is a power outage we will have back up power. Installation was a breeze due to Dawg Electrical. Rocky was so easy to work with. Quick and easy on our part....Also love the features on this unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just had my Generac installed today. The installation was done by E&RPower Solutions. I’m very pleased with the product and really looking forward to the time when we need it to work, not to wish any bad weather too anyone. I know that the guy who installed it had a 4 hour round trip to drive and the days in Kansas right now are hot, humid and very uncomfortable William was nice, friendly and very informative about what he was doing and about the product,a special thanks to him. For that reason only I highly recommend the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a picture is worth a thousand words I have been contenplating either solar or generator for a while now. I got an estimate for both and decided for the generac because of the words of other people I know, the looks of the unit, other reviews, and the installing company information. I also have used the installation company for other work in my home and the employees have been professional, polite, courteous, leave a clean work site when completed, and were on time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, So good! It has been an adventure getting this thing installed! I live in Central Texas, and knowledgeable installers are few and far between. THEN- you have to deal with the weather! Anyway, we finally got it installed and running today (I have it since March, 2012)! It performed as advertised when we simulated a power outage! I almost can't wait for the real thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The company that installed the generator did a great job. The owner of the company did a good job explaining everything and his men where on time, and they did a great job installing same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great generator for the price! We installed this generator in December 2015 and it has performed great. We live in the country in Nebraska and being without power for several days in the winter or summer is bad. We have our whole house wired into the generator so when the power goes off our generator kicks in. I also installed UPS systems on our Satellite TV, wireless router and televisions. When the power goes off our televisions and Internet are not effected and the generator keeps them charged. It's a great generator and adds value to your home.
