Great Product
My installer said it was a great box to install and work with (his first experience with this product) it made our service upgrade a breeze and took up a lot less room.

Lugs Broke Off
My electrician was installing the 3 power leads today and the entire top assembly broke off. This may be a one-off failure, but the time delay to get a replacement is delaying construction. I have a four year old version of this unit in another home and it has worked properly. Lugs breaking off is so fundamental I cannot recommend the Generac model 5440 transfer panel.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price
Cons: Low Quality

David,
This is a rare occurrence and we would consider it to be a one-off issue. We apologize for any issues you experienced with this transfer switch.

Very Comfortable
Since installing the generator, approx. 6 weeks ago, we have had 2 power failures, one of which lasted over two hours. Our generator kicked on, automatically within seconds, and we were very comfortable with complete use of all appliances.

We were the only home on our street to have power,. Many of our neighbors are now interested in adding a generator to their home.

Single Family Home Use
3500 SF home with gas furnace/ heat pump, gas water heater, electric wall oven. Installed 14kw unit (60 amp output) using natural gas and whole-house transfer switch. Generac equipment is quality stuff -- well designed and well made. Installation instructions are good, but not great. I'm a construction oriented electrical engineer, but some of the installation details were a bit vague. Luckily I hired an electrician who had installed several similar units before, so he knew the ropes.
