Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! After being out with power for nearly two weeks with Hurricane Sandy, this generator has brought piece of mind. Installation took two days and that was it! January 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is exactly what I wanted. Your servicemen were courteous and efficient. They were in and out in a few hours and treated us with respect. They were a joy to work with. Thank you very much! Ralph January 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator! We put ours in a month after Irene hit the NJ coast in 2011. We lived in a rural area with frequent power outages and we had a well pump. When Sandy hit and knocked our power out for 12 days in very cold weather we were very comfortable.mour 10Kw did the entire first floor well pump, furnace, wood stove blower and master bedroom and bath or a 3,500 sq ft house. We had a 1,000 gallon propane tank for heating, so that generator could go over 30 days. We now live in FL and are going to put another Generac in. December 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Generator and Switch Had this installed at my home in southern Ontario in November. Just this past weekend the ice storm hit and if it wasn't for this generator, we would have lost power for 28 hours. It kicked in about 20-30 seconds after the power went out, and kept running continuously with no issues all day in into the next morning when power was finally restored. Couldn't ask for better, the rest of the houses on our street were dark and we running normally. For the peace of mind and comfort this brings, it is a great deal. December 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I like the 11KW generac that we have had just over one year I am very satisfied with our generac generator it has very little noise. and is very reliable . December 16, 2014
