This Generator Is Great
It was amazing that our electricity was off 3 times in 2 weeks after installing. Our Generator restored power in a matter of a few seconds. We love it.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Exceeded Expectations

Awesome Generator!!!!!
I installed this for my client in LPGA, Daytona Beach, FL. I ordered an extra 200A service disconnect, and had it installed by professional electricians and had the start up done by a Generac authorized installer.

This unit is quiet, works flawlessly, plenty of power, looks nice, what more do you want. Thanks for the quick shipping, and excellent communications at Electric Generators Direct. They were very professional and personable.
Pros: Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Durable

Great Unit, Does The Job Quieter Than Most
We wanted a quieter power back-up option due to the close proximity of our neighbors house. This seemed to be the perfect answer. While it does power up to full output initially, it slows down after a couple minutes in three steps to 1900 rpm, which saves fuel and operates quieter (providing you have low power usage at the time). We are very pleased at the operation and convenience this unit provides.
Pros: Features, Quiet, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: None

So Far So Good
Installation went well once i found the riight plumber for the gas line. Installation with the electrical was about $1800. Electrician and plumber were both licensed and very experienced with generators. Has been test with an outage. Electric Generators Direct answered questions sufficiently and i was pleased with my purchase.

Fantatic Package Exceeded My Expectations
This package was fantastic. It included everything I needed after adding the concrete pad which I would also recommend.

The hardest part besides moving it (5 guys and metal pipe to hand carry) was the propane connection as I needed to add a second tank. Check to make sure you have a minimum or greater tank size.

First start it cranked right up and it handles my entire house including the AC without a hiccup so far. I've only had it running for a short while so far.

The interface is... more

Vendor Is Great
Still waiting on my local gas company and some last minute install stuff but otherwise this looks to be a very good product. My electrician said that this is one of the better units he will have installed due to the voltage regulator and 1/2 % THD.
Pros: Features, Quiet, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: TBD
