Generac Refuses To Back Their Product
I purchased a 16KW Generac for my new home and 2 months after hooking up the unit hurricane Ike struck the Houston area. My backup generator ran for 3-4 hours and shut down so I was without power for 3 days. The oil heat sensor was defective on the brand new generator. Since then I have replaced the starter, sator, battery, and the generator will not start automatically when we lose power. Apparently the choke is not working and Generator will only provide new parts if found defective on this 5... more
Pros: Totall Unreliable
Cons: Unreliable, Extremely Loud

Great Equiptment
I purchased this in Oct. 2009 for backup power and have already used in twice in Indiana.

It provides great peace of mind. When the power goes out, it kicks right in within 10 seconds!

It's a wonderful product at a good price.

Glad To Have Peace Of Mind
I purchased a Generac 5505 earlier this summer following a winter plagued with power losses and a horrific ice storm in Massachusetts.

The generator was packaged as described, and installed. I have yet to loose power since the installation, but according to my electrician the package was easy to put together.

The generator exercises itself once a week and it's very quiet. Glad to have the peace of mind!
