Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Buckaroo 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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gary 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EZRYDR 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gooch1234 Easy to start
This was my first experience buying a generator. I heard great things about a Generac so I was excited to find this one.
My husband picked up and got it started with very little problems. There was a little air in lines, but after it cleared out, it ran smooth. There was not an owner's manual or the "maintenance kit" that they said would come with this generator. I have looked on line and can not find an owner's manual to print off. Not sure what was included with the starter oil and maintenance kit, but so far we love the new generator.
