When it comes to small standby generators, there aren't many options. Most people skip the standby option and opt for a portable generator instead.

The new Generac PowerPact 7.5kW, offers you a compact home standby system at the price of a portable generator. The benefit is that you get full automatic operation!

For the price, can you believe this model even includes an 8 circuit load center style 50 Amp automatic transfer switch?

So I think you should take that money you were... more

It Is Everything I Thought It Would Be
Install was a breeze. Eight circuits was all I needed (which was easy to wire). Automatic transfer switch works great. And the weekly maintenance setting is very easy to set.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Not Very Happy!
We have had the Generac installed over six weeks ago, professionally, and it has not worked properly yet. We have dealt with several defective parts, delayed service by their authorized serviceman . And we are still without a solution to the problem.
Pros: Price
Cons: Unreliable
