Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice generator I purchased this generator after purchasing and returning 3 Westinghouse generators. 2 generator was defective and the other 1 would not power what I needed. Purchased the generac and am very satisfied with its performance. No issues with this generator. Provides all the power I need for my camping needs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Destroyed electronics I purchased my Generac 8000E in January 2019. I have used it about five times since, for a total of about 23 hours of usage. I live in the mountains and we lose power several times each year. It worked perfectly right up until last week. We lost power and I started the Generac, then connected it to my house power. It worked well for about half an hour, then suddenly the voltage, which I was monitoring, started fluctuating. Over the course of about 50 seconds, the voltage varied from 93 volts to 205 volts. Equipment all over the house was blinking on and off. I ran out to the generator and shut it down immediately. This equipment was destroyed: five LED bulbs water cooler 4 TB backup hard drive (behind a surge protector) uninterruptible power supply (behind a surge protector) three X-10 wall switch modules. multi-outlet panel (photo) This equipment had fuses blown, some of which are internal and require a lot of work to repair: computer speaker system (externally accessible fuse) electric blanket (internal fuses) vacuum packing appliance (internal fuse) All in all, I'm guessing that the total cost of the damages is about $400 in damages and about fifteen hours of my time. I have since tested the Generac several times and it seems to be OK, but I have no reason to believe that it will not fail again. The largest possible inductive load on the system would have been the water pump, using a motor rated at about 1.5 KW; the Generac, with 8000 KW capacity, should not have had any problems with that pump kicking on or off. I am attempting to determine whether the Generac can be trusted in the future. I will be carrying out extensive tests on it to see how it handles suddenly changing inductive loads. But we are seriously discussing getting a Honda generator. They are very expensive, but so is a generator that destroys equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for house and well pump I've only had to use the generator twice due to power outages, but it ran all the lights, two refrigerators (and freezers) and the 1.5 horse well pump perfectly. However, it is a bit loud.
