Questions & Answers

Can I hook up a portable generator into my breaker box by shutting off the main disconnect and wiring generator to 220 breaker in the panel.

Asked by: cuz
Hello, I have done electrical work for almost 50 years and was a trustee of an electrical utility, The thing that people don't realize is that a transformer drops the distribution voltage from (in our case) 7620 volts from the line down to 240 volts to your home. What happens when you back feed back into the line and transformer is that the voltage is stepped up from 240 volts to distribution voltage which is several thousand volts. If the line in front of your home ahead of the transformer is down and someone grabs it thinking it is dead and it isn't, he will be. Please don't take a chance on killing someone, maybe one of your family members, all it takes is to have both breakers closed at the same time to back feed.If you don't want to spend the money on a transfer switch what I have done for people is install a plug on the end of their furnace wire and plug it into a wall socket. In case of an outage you can unplug it from the wall and plug it into the generator, then is is not possible to back feed. Also, if the utility catches you with an illegal setup, they will take your meter with them and not return it until you are legal. I hope this helps you understand, this is a very deadly situation for who ever comes along. thanks for reading this, Sparky

Can you convert it to natural gas with a kit?

Asked by: tigerbaitmark
There are tri-fuel kits available by 3rd parties. This will void the generator warranty. On another note, this size engine looks similar and has equivalent CCs as some of their standby generators

17,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 121.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved by Generac 17,000 Watt generator Bought the biggest of all, the 17,000 Watt generator some years ago, and never used it until now. Living in Florida, you never know, when you need it, and now with Hurricane Irma, we lost power for several days. Backfeed my house at the panel, and supplied power to all my A/C untis (3 unit total) exterior lighting, etc, since we were the only house among 90 inour neighborhood, with full power, A/C, lights, etc. Unit started right away, and ran for 5 days 24/7. Highly recommendended. Only wish, you could have propane option at the flip of a switch, just in case. All gas stations ran out of fuel, so it would be a nice optional feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved us after Irma Living in the outskirts of Gainesville, FL. we lose power on a constant basis, and becomes a constant nuisance to my family and myself. So the following year I determined to take my tax return and buy a new generator. I researched multiple generators in finally set my mind on the Generac 17500. Since receiving my generator in February I've used it seven times running it 4 to 5 hours with no problems, then Irma hit. I ran this generator for over seven days nonstop and it was a lifesaver. I cannot thank Generac and the people who built this generator for the power, comfort and support it has given my family. This is a well-built generator and I highly recommend it to anyone.

You have to figure out how to lift it up to assemble the axle and wheels along with the front stabilizer. Good luck with that. Salesman told me it came fully assembled. Don't believe it. It was missing the bolts to attach the battery which sent me running to the auto parts store.It is however , a nice sounding engine. You will need to order the cable that attaches to the electric box if you are running direct .I purchased it in case of a hurricane blackout and I hope I never use it!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For those people who can't have a Propane Generator this is the answer. I had a smaller Generator... For those people who can't have a Propane Generator this is the answer. I had a smaller Generator before it was pretty powerful but would not run my home A/C. This does it all. I went on line to Generac under portable they ask what you want to power, Instant answer with choices. This generator handles my entire home. I live in Florida and were in the Hurricane season, with this I have no worries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Association said no Propane I checked with my HOA, they said no to Propane back up. So after researching what my needs were and knowing the quality of Generac. I purchased a GP17500 after talking with a Generac consultant I knew this would run my whole house. Live in Florida known for Hurricanes,I am worry free in the event power goes down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I am very happy with my purchase of the GP17500G generator. I feel that if a hurricane hits the Gulf coast my family will be comfortable in our home, with all the comforts. And I am very happy that it is made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding. I have had this generator since February 2017, the peace of mind is priceless. I did look tirelessly and this model was the best value. It easily handles our home ( 4200 sq ft) multiple refrigerators and 2 central air units. I did have the electrician wire the house for takeover, much easier given the winters in New England. Easy install, unpack and setup, by myself. Best of all made in the USA, great network of service centers here as well. If you, like me are looking for an alternative portable power source, this is it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is...."The Beast"! Have owned a 7,000 exl by Generac for years and never a single problem. Made the decision to purchase this GP17,500 watt beast. Very impressed with the quality of this unit. Fired up without the choke on first start out of the box! Have only ran for an hour doing a break in, so haven't put a load on it yet, but I can tell the Beast is ready! Thanks for a well made product!
