Answer: 
See the Generac spec sheet. I found it is always shown. If noise is an issue, you may want to consider a stand-by unit. For me the cost savings for a portable made considering the stand-by a non-issue. If I had natural gas, I may have gone to a stand-by to reduce the noise. The cost of getting a propane tank was just too much for occasional use.
It does seem noisy to me. But it has a nice sound.

Answer: 
Yes, Bob. As you probably know, the answer depends on how many of those baseboards you run and the current demands of the other devices which are running simultaneously. Check out one of those generator electrical charts that list how much juice each common household device draws.

Answer: 
YES, But be sure to plug into the 15 or 20 circuit. See calculations below. My only other caution is that running this generator to only generate 1500 wattage is very costly
Electrical power is measured in watts. In an electrical system power (P) is equal to the voltage multiplied by the current. Assuming your heater is running on 120 volts using 1500 watts,

Answer: 
Wattage is not the determing factor. You must convert the wattage for the electric baseboard heaters to Amps as well as for everything else you want to run on the generator. The Generac 10000 Watt unit can handle a constant load of approximately 47.6 Amps. If you intend to run the entire house off of this unit, your total constant Amps requirement cannot exceed the 47.6 mark for very long or it could Read More
Wattage is not the determing factor. You must convert the wattage for the electric baseboard heaters to Amps as well as for everything else you want to run on the generator. The Generac 10000 Watt unit can handle a constant load of approximately 47.6 Amps. If you intend to run the entire house off of this unit, your total constant Amps requirement cannot exceed the 47.6 mark for very long or it could burn out, or at the very least overheat and shut down the unit. So, if you intend to excced 47.6 Amps consistently, you may want to consider stepping up to the 12, 500 or larger wattage units. Oh, always remember to be sure that the wattage of the generator you buy is the constant running wattage. For example the Generac 10000 can produce an initial surge of 12,500 Watts, but it can only sustain a constant running wattage of 10000. Hence the name Generac 10000W. Read Less

Answer: 
Mine came with oil that I put in during setup. Generac 30wt, with extra bottle for end of season change. Excellent owner pamphlet discusses options with climate recommendations. Ordinary motor oil. I think Generac wants you to use the single viscosity oil during break in. Chat with them.

Answer: 
If the unit will be operated in cold temperatures, you will want to ensure you are using the proper engine oil; per the owner’s manual a synthetic 5W-30 should be utilized for cold temperature operation. Please see the attached guide for oil recommendations for your generator. Synthetic is a good oil to use if you are looking for a general year-round oil for areas that have significant season changes.

Customer Reviews

XG 10,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The generator arrived at H/D store with damage to the packaging and the pallet it was mounted on.... The generator arrived at H/D store with damage to the packaging and the pallet it was mounted on. One of the two bottles of oil had broken open and H/D staff had cleaned up the mess. They put the remaining loose objects and a replacement bottle of oil into a new box. The axle for the wheels must have been lost in transit, as the owner's manual indicated it was secured to frame, and was nowhere to be found. Generac customer service was very polite and have shipped a replacement axle free of charge.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great generator The generator itself was exactly what it was supposed to be. The accessories were out of the box and just taped to the top of the generator box. Some of the pieces were missing. There was only one wheel, no filters and a few misc. items. I contacted Home Depot and they had Generac send the missing parts. This was apparently the fault of the shipper and I've read reviews where this has happened before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Powerful Generator Just started using this generator in response to Irene. Changed the oil this morning (after 24 hours running). Have a permanant hookup to the house and a 10 circuit breaker box in the house. Thing runs great. Have it hooked to fridge, boiler (for hot water now; heat in winter), sump pump (very active), the TV and computer plugs and assorted lights. Didn't even start to press the power of this machine. Uses about 5 gallons for every 7 to 8 hours. Easy to full. Oil was easy to change.(should have gotten filter first; next time). It is running as we speak. Probably could have gotten by with 8,000 machine (have a XG1000E. Also, only has elec start. While I keep the battery charged; a pull start option would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Generac XG 10,000-12500-Watt Gas This is one trusting generator to have in your garage just in case of emergency and needs for your ALL home electrics needs. I have this unit for 3 years now and its ready for duty, anytime we need it. I have used it for several times by now. Its user friendly controls start / stop, fuel shut-off, and choke plus it have an illuminated LED control panel. Very handy power bar, track how much power you are using and how much power you have to spare with power bar. I test and used all the same times, 3 LED TVs up to 52", 6 large rooms with lights all LED or CFL Light Bulbs, Electric Stove, Well pump, Two Garage door Openers, WiFi router and networking equipment, 5 Laptops 1 Desktop PC, Oil Burner and water pumps two zones, Washer and Dryer, Dishwasher, and some other small appliances and lights around the house and garages NO PROBLEM for this generator and for as long as almost 4 days!! Covered outlets provide added protection! It comes with a Generac’s OHVI 530 cc MADE IN USA Motor, utilizes full pressure lubrication to provide long and trouble-free for years of services. A very useful tip: If you perches this or any battery back-up generators make sure you invest in a good Trickle Battery Charger/conditioner and leave it on your generator's battery year-round and you be all-set in time of need to start your Generators. Usually prices starts from $15 and up. Stay worm and stay happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, solid unit, more than acceptable performance. I have received the generator, made sure the battery was charged and connected, filled it with oil and gasoline and started it up. It ran like a champ and was very quiet for its size. The initial start-up took some time, probably having to do with getting the oil and gas through the system, so don't worry if it doesn't turn over the first time you push the START button. The oil filter, air filter, ground wire, and spark plug were all in place and ready to go. The spare oil filter, air filter and spark plugs were all there as promised. The problems I see with the unit all have to do with installing/replacing the air filter and the battery. The battery box is secured with bolts and you don't have adequate room to easily get a wrench or pliers on these bolts to loosen or tighten them. As for the air filter, it rests in a box on top of the motor, directly under the gas tank. You literally have to reach up into the generator to unsnap the lid replace the dirty air filter and then re-close the lid. The summer-winter switch is up in there as well. So don't go up in there while the engine is hot! Other than that, I really like the unit and don't regret buying it for a minute. And the best thing of all is that is is made right here in the United States of America!!! My understanding is that all of the "XG" series units are built here, but not all of the other units in other series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted whole house protected... The 10KW portable is a very nice product. I appreciate the quality, appearance, and value. Product arrived on time and as advertised. Product was easy to assemble and started right up. Very happy with product. No surprises, which is a good things these days. The salesperson was very helpful, the delivery staff was great, even had the manager present when the product was delivered. Generac stood out from the competition. I like that they describe product as a 10000 W 'running' generator. Many others advertise the surge watts first, then the running watts. Very deceiving marketing. With Generac, no deception.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made to do the job! I ordered the Generac 10,000 KW Generator to run my well pump when the power goes out....which happens all to often....and it does the job easily. Easy to assemble, easy to operate. I was somewhat disappointed when the box arrived in deplorable shape and not attached to the pallet....but all the parts were in place and did not hinder assembly.
