Questions & Answers

Will this operate a 1hp submersible well pump that draws 10 amps?

Asked by CaptB November 6, 2020
1
Answer

Since each application is unique, we are unable to properly size a unit remotely. We do have a sizing calculator online that can help you get an idea on what generator may be needed, but we strongly recommend working with a dealer to ensure the proper generator is picked. Our sizing calculator can be found here: https://www.generac.com/for-homeowners/home-backup-power/build-your-generator, and all of our local dealers can be found at www.generac.com/dealer-locator.

How many decibels does this unit run at?

Asked by Scott October 21, 2020
1
Answer

Because there is no industry standard way to measure sound output on portable products it makes it very hard to compare brand to brand. Generac does not list the specific decibel level for our portable products for this reason. This is an open engine similar to a lawn mower so it does not run as quiet as our automatic home standby generators, is comparable if not quieter than most other brands.

Asked by lars September 12, 2020
1
Answer

The size of the generator needed is dictated by the power requirements of all of the items you want to run. We recommend working with an authorized Generac dealer to determine the generator size that would best suit your needs. If you need assistance finding a local dealer, we recommend using our dealer locator found here: http://www.generac.com/dealer-locator
