Do not buy this. Burns 1 qt oil every 25 hrs & shuts down
1 Star Review   By junior on Home Depot - Feb 13, 2013   

Do not buy. They do not tell you it burns 1 qt of oil and shuts down automatically. 1 qt every 1 hrs out of a total of 3 qts and shuts down. Black soot on cover from oily exhaust. Kohler refuses to return my money and installer says the company is a fraud and had to give his 2 friends their money back same problem. Not me however or his other customers. Kohler won't talk to customers referring to installer who says his hands are tide.

Works like a charm in tests
4 Star Review   By RCRCRCRC on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

I had the unit professionally installed. And, it takes care of the whole house without any problems. I bought the unit at HD and had to arrange my own pick up from the store. I would advise acquiring it online so that shipping is taken care of.

The best 20KW standby gen out there
5 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Nov 1, 2012   

Installed with a load module late July. Runs its own 20 min test/battery charge once a week. During Sandy, kicked on 4 seconds after power went and operated flawlessly for 36 hours. A little more expensive than Generac but well worth it for the quality, 5 year warranty and overall dependability.

Top of the Class!!!
5 Star Review   By RobNY on Home Depot - Sep 9, 2012   

I reviewed several different standby generators and this Kohler unit was the best in it's class. Although this unit was not the cheapest in terms of price, it surpassed its competitors in quality, ease of use, and quietness. The installation process was seamless, the gas company took a few hours to install the gas lines and the electrician took 3 days to complete the installation. Unlike other units that are eyesore to your landscape, the Kohler unit blends in naturally to your existing landscape. The unit starts up every week to perform a cycle test. Last night we had the rare opportunity to see how the unit performed during an actual power loss when the Hiudson Valley area was hit by a storm and the unit power up in 10 seconds after power loss. Unit powered up the entire house including our central air systems with no problem while our neigbors was still trying to locate their candles. Best investment for the house.

Unit carries full household load
4 Star Review   By ralph on Home Depot - May 29, 2012   

Although not yet used as primary power source when commercial power fails, unit easily carries full load of house. Operation is quiet and the unit appears very reliable.

Superior construction, and guarantee
5 Star Review   By Mike on Home Depot - Apr 24, 2012   

The generator has very low sound levels due to an internal noise shield. The enslosure and locking mechanism are very attractive and look like they should age well. The instructions are clear cut and as an electrical contractor they are easy to follow, I would not recomend a novice install this as codes must be observed as well as local permiting.

Good overall (though we have not had an outage yet)
4 Star Review   By Robert on Home Depot - Dec 27, 2011   

This was recommended to us by our electrician (we were going to buy Genentech). We thought the purchase price included start up, but did not. Total cost roughly $10K for purchase price & installation. So far (one month later) it's installed and starts up each week on schedule.

unit arrived as promised and has all the needed features.
4 Star Review   By grbf on Home Depot - Oct 6, 2011   

although we have not used the unit yet, it appears to have all the needed features of a top rated generator. The transfer switch did not have the throwswitch in the box that was needed to pass the building inspection. We had to purchase the switch and another box separately, this and the labor added another 200.00 to the cost of installation. This is still a good buy, if purchased on sale.

Great product.
5 Star Review   By ruready2fish on Home Depot - Sep 6, 2011   

Installed product blends into the yardscape without being obvious. Operational noise is less than anticipated. My wife is very happy that our home and barn electrical services will never be interrupted again by a hurricane. An additional service box was required for the installation because the furnished switch did not have a manual disconnect.

Kohler quality and reliability is apparent in this generator
5 Star Review   By EQUINERANCHER on Home Depot - Aug 12, 2011   

The Kohler generator has all the features (and then some) of any other unit on the market, which included a quality transfer switch. The 5 year guarantee is also a great feature as nearly all other generators only offer a 1 (sometimes 3) year warranty. It is easy to install and program and is not very loud when running under load. The plastic outter shell is well insulated against noise and the plastic mounting platform (like the outter shell) is corrosion-proof, a "must" in the wet Florida weather. Even with the purchase of the wire, conduit and fittings, the Kohler generator was competively priced.

Don't Freeze This Winter
4 Star Review   By Forge on Home Depot - Dec 20, 2010   

I had one of these installed not long before a major winter outage. Thanks to this generator, we were able to last the several-day outage—along with being able to keep the house heated and burst-pipe free! It's not the quietest box on the block, but it practically takes care of itself. I'll be moving soon and will be getting another. It'd be crazy not to.
