Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase!!! I did a lot of research before I purchased. B&S, Generac and others seem to be having quality problems. Cummins came out on top in my analysis. Like other major home appliances- installation can make or break your purchase. I went with an electric company our of Reading PA ( Waldman Electric) that have been around for 75 years. All I can say is- I made the correct decision. Great generator- great options and great company that installed it. They coordinated with trenching guys,gas guys and made this whole thing go well. I have used it approx 6 times this year- from minutes to days- its flawless. In the middle of an outage- I am "THE MAN" for purchasing this unit. Go with Cummins and a great electricians- you can't go wrong. December 19, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by **BUYER BEWARE** POOR TECH SUPPORT AND POOR WARRANTY SERVICE Please research this company before you buy. The tech support is not knowledgeable at all with this particular unit. I finallly got to the supervisor and she told me that I voided my warranty because I did not use Cummins to do the install. I had my generator professionally installed by licensed electricians and gas technician. My warranty says "must be installed in accordance with Cummins" not "must be installed by Cummins". I had the remote control panel go bad so I wanted to file a claim on it. My local Cummins dealer said I needed to have them do an inspect and turn-up operation by them before they would cover any warranty claims. The quote for just the inspection was $900. The rest was already done. I can buy a lot of repairs for $900 so I purchased the control unit myself and gave up on the warranty claim. Please keep this in mind when purchasing a generator. There unit is already on the high side and there is no warranty unless you want to pay for it by using Cummins to install the unit. BTW their install will be about four times higher than any respectable company in the area. February 10, 2013
