Excellent Generator For Solar System Integration
We install 10 generators or so a year, mostly for off-grid integration with full battery backed up solar photovoltaic systems. This is a very nice unit, that is very well equipped for both on and off grid backup installations. Features like multiple redundant battery charging systems, and factory 2 wire start make this unit an excellent selection.
Pros: Features, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, High Quality

No Support From Electric Generators Direct Or Winco
This product does not have a manual, Winco says they haven't printed one yet and they seem to think that's an okay answer. We called Winco before purchasing and were assured of several issues. They apologized for giving us incorrect information and Electric Generators Direct says it's our problem and we can pay them 15% restocking fee and the $500 shipping fee to return it...A total nightmare with no customer service!
Cons: Everyone involved takes your money and does care

Rose,
We are very sorry you're unsatisfied with your purchase. All of the information provided on the product page and spec sheet are accurate. After following up with Winco, we were made aware that this unit was going to be used for prime power. The spec sheet clearly states that when being used for "Prime Power" derate by 30%. Please keep in mind while the generator can be used in a "Prime Power" application, it is designed to be a supplemental power source for Off-Grid applications.

Winco provides a manual for the generator ULPSS8B2W. The only difference is the solar battery charger and the external outlets. We always suggest having a licensed electrician install a standby generator.

Just Received This Review As My Gen Is Inoperable
I had this unit professionally installed and hooked up by surburban propane. Well it started on test run after propane tech was here , and now it cranks but no start. I don't know if it's the unit or the propane hook up issue. Of course it's Saturday and every place is closed and when I need it, it's inoperable. When I get it running and I get another email to post a review, I can send you a follow up .. the test start was quiet and the unit looks pretty. But at this time(living off the grid)... more
Pros: Quiet, Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Unreliable, Bad Instructions
