20,000-Watt Air Cooled Automatic Standby Generator with 200-Amp SE Rated Transfer Switch is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 92.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind during power outages. So simple! We used to have a 5K generator run by gas that we had to manually set up during power outages. In the middle of a winter storm, this is a horrendous thing to have to do. This Generac generator, purchased to run our entire house, is a godsend. It tests itself once a week, and the transfer from power outage to generator and back to power restored status is seamless. Very, very, very happy. Great value for cost and peace of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet, efficient, GREAT quality Somehow the plastic access door got broken off during installation (It may have been cracked or broken before, I am uncertain). When I called I discovered that Generac has service 24/7 AWESOME. In addition imagine my surprise when Generac said they will just send me a replacement, no question asked. AWESOME service. Nice way to start my relationship with Generac. THANK YOU

Rated 5 out of 5 by from unit worked great, no complaints Our 20kw unit finally got a good 10 hr workout. No problems & no complaints. We are on propane and generator & furnace operation simultaneously did not pose a problem for the propane system. We enjoyed keeping warm with outside temperatures below freezing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from reliable and convenient Even in the cold, always starts when needed. Powerful enough for us to be totally independent during a lasting power failure. Maybe the paint could be darker for it to be more discreet. Other than that, nothing bad to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hasn't been a power outage since installation The Generac performs its normal, scheduled test cycle each week. I am assuming when the time comes it will provide backup whole house power source
