Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it I bought this because of my bed ridden mother and shortly after its instillation we had power failure and I didn't know it until my neighbors came to the door wondering how i had power when the neighborhood had none. July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase I made. We've had our 17Kw generator over 4 years and it has performed flawlessly. We loose power 6-8 times a year and every time the generator kicks in within 90-120 seconds and powers us back up. I bought this size to run our central A/C in the summer which is has. Last Christmas we had a sever ice storm and lost power for 5 ½ days. We powered our two neighbors plus our house with no problems. During this ice storm outage, I shut down the generator every two days just to check the oil. After 5 ½ days of near constant running, it was a little over ¼ quart low…no big deal. We have the generator serviced annually by our installer to keep it in tip-top shape. Best money you can spend. I recommend this generator to anyone think of getting one. April 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GE 17KW Geenerator The GE 17KW Standby Generator is probably the best value for a generator of this size available. My generator was installed about 18 months and it has provided me with nothing but steady and reliable service. The installation was completed in a day, without problems, and the installers from New Hampshire Generator Installers were knowledgeable and friendly. May 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! I bought this generator in 2010, it has performed flawlessly ever since.Had a bad storm a month after purchase, causing a power outage of 60 hrs.I let my neighbors use my freezer. May 15, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding experience! Since we purchased our stand-by genset, we feel much more secure in what nature and the local utilities throw our way. May 14, 2014
