We are proud of our innovative product design, high quality and first-class reliability so we stand behind them with a strong 5, 7 or 10-year limited warranty.

Can Be Installed Just 18" From a Structure
Capability to be installed 18 inches away from a structure, ideal for areas with tight lot lines.  Generac’s is the only manufacturer of standby generators to have 18” offset on most of its residential lineup.

Our RhinoCoat™ powder-coated finish helps make corrosion-resistant aluminum perfect for all weather conditions.

All backup generators run a weekly test to ensure the system is running properly. Thanks to Quiet-Test, your Protector Series home generator runs its self-test at a lower, quieter RPM, which can be programmed to run weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Mobile Link™ Remote Monitoring
Mobile Link is the optional cellular remote monitoring system from Generac that allows you to check your generator’s status from anywhere in the world using your computer, tablet or smartphone.

Additional Features
Improved stub ups and electrical connection access decrease installation costs. All connections are dual conductor rated, and the implementation of quick connects for the control wires, completely eliminates the need for crimping or lugging.
Improved customer connection access, which decreases installation costs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Washington Generators ROCK !!! Eric made generator selection super easy. Scheduling was also easy and done to suit our schedule, not theirs. The install team were professional and friendly. The Generac 32 kw liquid cooled unit we got is amazing. We can’t even hear it when it kicks on. I’m not sure if it’s cheaper to use the generator for our main power or stick with PSE lol. THANKS WASHINGTON GENERATORS!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very satisfied with the purchase and install experience and thrilled with the result We made the purchase through Mr Electric who was the most professional and knowledgeable of the 4 vendors we met with. Sean arranged for us to see and hear a similar generator at a clients home. We decided on the larger size and have been happy with that decision. In the last 2 years we have had several occasions to use the generator. It boots up in literally seconds when there is an outage. the switch back to electricity is imperceptible. The noise is like a truck running outside and we have no complaints. I have recommended Mr Electric, Sean and his team to others. Generac is the most reliable product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Equipment and Features We purchased this product for our new home that we built. We are already very impressed with the features, including the digital error code reader that helps us identify problems early on. We wanted a generator that was able to run on natural gas and this was the perfect solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dont expect to Get Mobile Link with this model like the website says. I was expecting to get Mobile Link based on the this product detail page. Every other feature listed on this page is standard turns out after I installed my generator today the Generac Authorized dealer basically said, nope, thats and extra feature/upsell, you have to pay an additional $750 for. Needless to say, this is a great generator otherwise, but I feel that this webpage is misleading and definitely one of the reasons I picked this generator. I feel pretty disappointing at Generac. I called Generac and it is Ref#5441209 and we will see what they do about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Question quality control of the product. Heard from installers that there are more problems with the new models Had a previous 25 KW that lasted 10 years. Got this one a month ago. Had to change the board three days after the purchase! Quality control is not like it used to be. I am hoping for a good product. Have also bought the ten years warrenty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now my disabled son is protected When IRMA paid a visit and our smaller generator didn't quite fit the bill, I decided an upgrade was in order. For years our smaller GENERAC severed us well but since my son's accident our needs have increased. This new generator will have us comfy cozy, and my son can rest safe as the torrent rages outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very quiet unit with peace of mind. We are very pleased with our purchase. We now have peace of mind knowing we have backup power. The unit is much quieter than I expected and provides plenty power for us. The unit was scratched in shipping, but I assume that is the shipper and not Generac. Very good installer. He was very informative, professional, and friendly. The installation was very clean and professional. I highly recommend.
