Not Generac
Bought my generator in 2008...since then I've had numerous minor and two major service related issues. After the first three years of one annoying issue after another (fairly minor problems - that required maint. support) the engine and control panel finally quit in 2012.

Replaced both, only to have the control panel fail again 10 months later...Guess what - not under warranty (their warranty = 90 days)... I needed the unit working as we are experiencing severe weather, Generac, first... more

Saved Thousands Of Dollars
Last month with the record snow melt and heavy rain storms, several of the neighbors were very concerned about their basements flooding when power was out for 18 hours.

Excellent Product
I debated purchasing a standby generator vs. the gasoline powered unit, but the ease of use and features made the decision easier.

I just installed the 10kw Guardian unit with the transfer switch and I couldn't be more pleased. The unit was delivered (free!) in excellent condition. The packaging was even top notch!

The total installation time was 4-5 hours with 2 people (and that included a run to the hardware store for the natural gas lines).

Installation was very easy if you... more

Confident It Will Do The Job
From purchase to installation everything went very smoothly.

The unit installation was easy, likewise the initial start up. NO PROBLEMS.

Now hopefully I do not need to use it. BUT if and when I do, I feel confident it will do the job.
