Natural Gas Generator
Best Thing I Ever Did. No fuse, no Gas to worry about. Tests itself. Quieter than reg Generator. Don't have to find a place to put it or worry about someone taking it.

8 Kw Generac Emergency Backup Generator
This is the second 8 KW generator I ordered and installed. Both were to replace older units that failed. Installation was easy. Setup was a snap. Registration was simple. Both units are doing what they should be doing, nothing. They are just waiting in stand-by mode.

I have both set up to do the weekly exercise on Sunday at noon. I check them about once a month. Everything is exactly like it should be. The digital display says the unit is ready to run in standby mode.

I would highly... more

Absolutely Fabulous
I purchased a standby generator from Electric Generators Direct. They are absolutely fabulous. The generator arrived in two days in perfect condition.

Any problems that I had with the installation were quickly answered by the knowledgeable Direct personal. I was delighted with with my whole experience.

I was so happy with this experience, that I will use Power Equipment Direct to by a new tractor in the spring.

Keep Up The Good Work
After numerous power outages in northern Indiana in July 2012, I decided it was time for a different gen set. I had previously used a Generac 7550 EXL manual gen set. I drove to EGD's warehouse in Bolingbrook IL. The sales staff was extremely helpful. I drove around to your huge warehouse, and the warehouse guys had it already sitting there ready to be loaded in my truck. Drove home (about 90 miles), and had some help in unloading it, set it on a pea gravel pad that I had built for it. Wired it... more

Tom,
These generators are designed to be used with an automatic transfer switch. Please not that using a manual transfer switch may void the warranty.

I have installed numerous older Generac's and only one of these newer models. Very easy install and the newer models are easier to service. I love them.

Generac Load Center
I have installed 2 of these units in the past year for customers. They are excellent products. The directions are very clear, making installation simple. I would recommend Generac products to anyone interested. My only regret is that one time I ordered the generator that did not include the transfer switch. This caused me to have to order the switch separately which raised the price by $250 for materials and shipping. The complete package of generator and switch is the best buy. My... more

Name-brand Generator
I was looking for a really well built Generator. I checked Onan and Cat but they were too big for what I needed. I kept seeing Generac and have wired some up for customers that ordered them but I was not impressed. Generac kept coming up as the best choice for my customers needs so I finally ordered one. I studied this unit and have found them to be second to no one. The company building these is doing it right. Someone said it was noisey, it's a running engine and I thought it was very quiet.... more
