Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fixitorelse Prewired 30 amp manual transfer install
This unit was purchased to install with Generator system as required by local utility works. The installation manual was easy to read and follow. If someone who has some electrical skills this installation should be of no concern if you just follow the recommended procedures as written in the manual (though I will caution you as your working in a live breaker box and should have some knowledge of electrical equipment and procedures).
On a side note, My skill sets are above the average home owner, as I have 45 years working with high voltage materials. But like I stated earlier. I think its a pretty straight forward install and most people would not have trouble completing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by m095733w Just the right size and configurable
The Reliance transfer switch is also good but you are stuck with their proprietary breakers. This transfer switch can be configured to run 10 circuits. The breakers are compatible with many common brands. If you do add 4 additional circuits to make 10 circuits you will replace the single breakers with double breakers and it makes it easier to complete the job if you also run a second conduit to the Main Breaker Box to handle some of the wires. Wires are well marked and it uses hefty 60 Amp breakers in both the outgoing Main Breaker Box and incoming Transfer Switch - this means the 30 Amp transfer switch is well supplied with incoming power when switched to "Utility". As a contractor , this is my recommended transfer switch for my customer's portable generators.

Mostly complete - missing neutral wire to main panel - with adequate instructions. For $200, can't be beat

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyal This transfer switch is a high quality American made product!
I installed this transfer switch into my 400 amp service with two 200 amp twin panels in about 3 1/2 hours. Coupled with my new 6800 watt generator I am now ready for the next short or extended power outage. Instructions were clear making for a simple installation. If you are not comfortable working inside an electrical panel you should hire an electrician. There is no possibility of backfeeding the panel and creating a shock hazzard to electrical utility workers with this device. When the power goes out my backup generator will have the lights, fridge, furnace, freezer, well pump, etc. back on in less than five minutes!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SJnSC NOT ADEQUATE
Once wired into my panel box, as per instructions, I could not run all of my appliances when on power from the grid. It was wirred correctly, but my appliances could not get enough current to function properly, and I had not even connected a generator. Not happy with this product! I ordered this product a couple of years ago, but never got the time to work on this project until now. Really not happy!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Easy installation
I just put it in, so I can't comment on long term reliability. Seems well made though. Biggest plus: very easy installation (as long as you're right next to the main electrical panel. As with all transfer switches, you can still do it if you're further away but you have to extend it yourself, which takes time and wire.) Only small negative: The two unchangeable breaker positions are 15A. I'd like to see one 15A and one 20A. In any case it's rated for 10 circuits, so the 4 changeable slots can all be fitted with 20A tandems, which should always be more than sufficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Aenduser Very nice product
I had purchased this transfer switch from the recommendation of my electrician. He was very please with the product, as well as the other materials that came with it. The price is a little high compared to some of the other options out there.

Installing it this weekend comes seems like a good and realiable product but wont know till the power fails and the generator fires up. Hope its a good buy.
