what does CARB compliant mean/refer to?

Asked by Dan October 27, 2020
1
Answer

Generac model #6954 does not have a feature for carbon monoxide shut off, but it does have a low oil shutdown, which automatically shuts the engine down to prevent potential engine damage. This generator is CSA compliant. If you are looking for generators that do have a carbon monoxide shut off, you may want to look at model #7672, #7680, #7683, #7673 and #7675.

Awesome Home Back Up
Customer review from generac.com logo
Took it out of the box attached wheels and legs. Small problem with a punched out piece of metal still in one of the holes. A little bit of a pain to drill out but got it. Filled with oil and stabilized gas hit start button and off we went. Wired home interlock and plug in to breaker panel which was very easy. Shut main breaker off turned on 30 amp breaker and ran the entire home. Not oven or AC although it would run AC and furnace with some things turned off. I was running Well pump and sump pump as well as a refrigerator and freezer. Awesome machine so far. Looking forward to first power outage. I will be turning on the front porch lights to show off.

Perfect Portable to run the house
Customer review from generac.com logo
Three quotes of average 6500.00 to set up a house generator. This was a great choice. although it won't automatically start when power goes out. We can plug this in and power our whole panel, then just be careful on what you use. total cost plus the hiring af electrician 1600.00. Simple box switch. Perfect solution for us.

Colt's Neck
Well built machine
Customer review from generac.com logo
We bought our 76861 to replace our 20yr. old Coleman Powermate which still runs well.This machine will let us run more necessary things, like our well pump and furnace, and with the transfer switch, not have to dance over extension cords.I got 4 different wheels and tires for it, so now it is simple and easy to move over our yard, and in and out of the garage, looks like an open wheel modified from 1970.It started on the first pull after I put a couple of gallons of VP110 in the tank.It will only get 110 or VP SEF to eat, as you can leave it in the machine with no problems.I hooked it up to the house today, and it never seemed to notice the load.It is heavy, strong, and well made.It is well worth my money and I am very happy., with it and the 6853 transfer switch.

Excellent value
Customer review from generac.com logo
Just got it. started perfectly without any issues. Easy to move around. Everything as advertised. Have not used it for power yet but have high expectations. Not nearly as noisy as i thought it would be. Not any louder than the poulan pro 6600 which it is replacing.

Initial Review of the Generac GP8000
Customer review from homedepot.ca logo
I ordered my Generac GP8000 generator in April, 2020 using Home Depot's website as the actual store was closed due to COVID-19. It is more difficult to compare generators online as opposed to seeing them in the store but my research indicated the GP8000 suited my needs. I used curbside pickup and loaded it into my truck with help from a sales associate. Assembly was straightforward and the electric start worked immediately without any need to charge the battery. The only downside to this unit is that most generators of this size have both a 120/240 Volt 30Amp receptacle and a 120/240 Volt 50 Amp receptacle. The GP8000 comes with only the 30 Amp receptacle. My initial review is based only on the quality of the construction and ease of assembly and operation. I have not yet needed to use it during a power outage.

Didn't work, out of the box.
Customer review from generac.com logo
I bought the product on Sunday before a hurricane hit on Tuesday, knocking out our power. The main cable that plugs into my (electrician installed) circuit box worked fine, so I had water pump, sump pump, furnace, refrigerator and freezer working. But none of the four 120 outlets worked at all. I called for additional directions and was told to contact my local service person. I did and they said that I had to bring it in for service. So, I could not run extension cords into my house for electricity for the next 4 days that my power was out. I am taking it in for repair and hope that they get the outlets running. Service people have been very nice. Also, you make it very difficult to find the serial number, hidden on the back of the panel, and difficult to register the serial number/product, by telling me to go to a web site, then find the registration icon, then telling me to call a number. Why not have the number in your literature, or allow the registration on -line?
