Model 5875 With 2 Nexus Smart Witches
I replaced a Guardian model 04390-1 that has served me well for the last 9 years. I just wanted to upgrade so I could get my a/c units on the backup system.

My location had 3, 200 amp panels with 2 in the basement and 1 in the garage as a sub panel where the original generator was connected. I had to remove the 200 amp disconnect for garage ( panel "C" ) and use 1 of the new Smart switches to replace it, which I mounted outside by the meter.

The other smart switch I put in the... more

Good So Far
I researched a lot of generators and decided to purchase the 5875 20KW air-cooled model with the Nexus smart controller/switch. The reason I settled on this decision was based on very competitive price, plus the smart switch allows this generator to handle the power needs of an entire large house.

You need to purchase a transfer switch for a standby generators, and for many generators this is a separate additional cost for this generator the switch is included.

Basically this... more

Rural East Tennessee power lines trees ice/snow/wind storms = power outages.

Power outage: 15 seconds power on with excellent "Quiet Source" generator.

Great Product
I needed to prep a client's house for a future generator set and this unit fit the bill exactly. It was easy to wire.

Works Like A Champ
After I placed the order for my smart switch it arrived in less than a week. It works like a champ and has not given us any problems.

Glad I purchased it. Money well spent.

Complicated Install Due To Home Design
My installation was quiet complicated. Electrician asked that I order a second Nexus Panel since my house had 2- 200 amp panels. He explained this would make for a cleaner installation. The Nexus panels had to be located on the exterior of the house requiring drilling several huge holes through brick. Because of my electrical room being located in the garage on a concrete slab the wiring from the generator was run through the basement up into my electrical room. Gas hook up was less... more

It Went Flawlessly
My neighbor and I installed the entire system after the generator was delivered to the slab. We found the installation instructions easy to follow. We had a certified installer check-out our installation and commission the unit. It went flawlessly.
