Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark B Very impressed with the quaility and appearance of this generator.
Very impressed with the quaility and appearance of this generator. Easy to assemble and the fact that everything needed for the first service interval is included is nice to have. It took a few pulls to get started, I may not have waited long enough for the gas to fill the carb. After the first start it now starts on the first pull. I ran a test run with about 1/3 of the expected load that the unit will see in an outage. It handled it with ease only showing 25% on the power meter. My only concern is the unit is a little loud, not so much exhaust noist but mechanical noise. I don't think I will be able to use it at night during the warmer months without possibly upsetting my neighbors.

works great, starts on one pull and is easy to move around. Assembly was a 5 minute job and handles the load I put on it with ease. I calculated I would use around 2500 on each side and it wound up being 900 on A and 800 on B so it will handle a lot. Also had concerns from reviews before I bought about it dying after a few uses and then I read the paperwork and it was obvious that they didn't balance the load correctly and didn't start the load correctly either. Excellent product and made in the USA.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheMAN Great features for a middle-of-the-road genny
I bought it primarily for powering my welder but I can also use it just in case there are any power outages. The plug and control panel is easy to understand and it has step-by-step instructions on how to start it up basically making this dummy-proof. I did try this out for the first time and it had no problem keeping up with the juice my welder demanded. What else is great is that it comes with an extra oil filter and spark plug and other accessories. All in all, this is a good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dave from Jersey Quality Product = Piece of Mind
Just prior to Hurricane Sandy I purchased another generator from a big box store.However after about 10 minutes of running it would shutdown- reason- it was manufactured with the wrong fuel filter- Quality Control. It was returned. After some time to do a proper review of generators, I picked this model. Yes the price is double, but it was delivered to my house and ready to go. It also comes with a quart of oil, oil filter, air filter and spark plug for first maintenance. I was also able to get free financing for 6 months. I would have preferred 1 year. I would also like to see a meter for total wattage used like the other one had. Hopefully I won't need to use it, but I feel prepared now and I believe Generac will stand by its 3 year warranty, which gives me piece of mind.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jasper Great for price
Wanted a electric start but it pull starts on first pull once it has been started initially.The XG series is made in USA, thats why I bought XG instaed of GP series which is made in China. It delivers consistent 120 / 240 volts seems to be well built.
