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.

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.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 101 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by generator Will never buy a generac generator again from home depot again bought this generator had a problem with it starting with less than a hour on it n home depot didnt want anything to do with it bc i didnt buy the extended warranty ! March 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 22, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a charm We moved to the 'country' north of Spokane, WA earlier this year and were warned of potential power outages due to weather. I researched portable generators with the goal of buying a high quality unit that could do more than power a toaster and decided on Generac's 10Kw model. We had an electrician wire the house for it early in November, and on the 17th, the area experienced a record windstorm with gusts exceeding 70 MPH. Over 200,000 homes, including ours, lost power for up to 9 days. Our Generac kept the lights on, refers and freezers cold, TVs functioning, and fans working in our propane fireplaces to keep us warm in 15 degree weather. We were the only home within sight that had lights in our area. The genset never missed a beat and had a fair amount of excess capacity that wasn't used. Probably the best investment we've made since moving here. December 3, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Device seemsg good. Some design features questionable. We received this thing and put it together yesterday. As far as power, it will run our house and we can live pretty normally so that's a plus. It's relatively compact and will fit where we store it. Here are the faults as I see them: The manual recommends 10W-30 oil below 40* and that weight oil is the broadest application. Most power outages happen in the winter but it ships with straight 30 weight. The wheelbarrow handles are cool but the latch is flimsy. The handles flex about 2" at the end you hold so the 400Lb machine teeters. It's awkward. The oil fill pipe is almost the same height as the bottom of the control panel making putting a funnel in it awkward. The funnel tube will be almost horizontal and there is a stop in the fill pipe that prevents the funnel from going in a reasonable distance. I used a transmission funnel with a long tube and I still had oil all over the floor from both the bell end and the tube/fill pipe end. A block under the wheel would have prevented most of this but so would a properly designed fill pipe. There's only about 1 1/2 inch clearance between the lock on the air cleaner and the bottom of the fuel tank. That's the space you have to get your hand in there to turn that lock and manipulate the lid off. This is the dumbest design feature I've ever seen. My wife can do it. I'd have to take the fuel tank off TO CHANGE AN AIR FILTER. THIS IS STUPID. December 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This Generator is attractive and compact Initially was hard to start. It took 4 hours to get it going. Not sure what happened. The location of some of the parts like the gas filter are tucked away and hard to get to. Some electric wires were too short and routed in awkwardly like blocking the oil dipstick. It start fine now. I only used it to run an electric drill as a test. It is noisy and the instructions are poorly written. For the money, I think the above could be improved. A note in the instruction stated that it cannot run on 85 gas/15 Ethanol. Congress is considering going to that product. April 7, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jsut in time Have had the XG10000E for 2 days when the power went out. We have a well pump, furnace, electric dryer, as well as satellite TV, 2 fridges, water heater, microwave, lights, etc. This powers it all easily, just remember to unplug air compressors, that kicked out the breaker. Only problem was the factory forgot to bolt down the fuel tank. I need to get four flanged bolts and tap the holes. Also there was only one qt of oil, needs two. November 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Power to spare Have had the XG10000E for 3 years now. We have a well pump, septic pump, furnace, electric dryer, as well as TV(s), fridge, microwave, lights etc.. This unit runs it all easily. We don't need it often, but it sure is nice when we do!! Only thing I would change would be to charge the battery automatically off the engine when it is running.
