good product at a good price
Automatic transfer is easy to set up. Unfortunately I could not use it at my home. The Gas company "National Grid" refuses to respond to requests to upgrade my gas service to supply this unit. Please check your gas availability before adding any appliance and use a licensed contractor.

10,000-Watt Home Standby Generator
Had i forseen the problems with this I would never have purchased, Contrator/Installer for Home Depot was to say at the very least a lost cause. Forced to do it myself at a cost of about $600 for parts

Impressed by the size, looks and features
I am really impressed and very happy with this generator. I looked at other generators of the same size, 10,000 watts. The others were all bigger, bulkier looking and didn't have half the features of this model, and their price was higher. The quality of the workmanship is great, it just impresses you.

I am really impressed and very happy with this generator. I looked at other generators of the same size, 10,000 watts. The others were all bigger, bulkier looking and didn't have half the features of this model, and their price was higher. The quality of the workmanship is great, it just impresses you. It runs great and quiet, I can just barely hear it running when I am in the house. My electrician who installed it was really impressed by the workmanship and qualitly of it too. He is thinking of buying one for himself. What I really like is that it hardly takes up any room at all and it runs the whole house! P.S. When you see the engine you know it's a serious piece of equipemnt. The automatic shutoffs and startups work like clockwork. Every once in a while you know when you have made the right purchase, when you've got your money's worth, this is it for me! The best part is I have confidence in this standby generator, I know that when i need, it will perform.

nice package, but not quite complete
The instructions are a little vague on controlling the high energy users such as the water heater and the contactor was not included in the package. However the tech support is very helpful and were able to explain some instillation of wiring questions that were not covered in the manual. all in all, a great unit and is fairly quiet compared to others.
