And with the regular maintenance alerts provided by your hour meter, you'll never be caught off guard.

What is the Decibel rating on this unit? 
Asked by: Tswizzle
What a run around answer to this question. The person asking the question doesn't give a hoot if there are national standards, so why not just answer his question? Providing there is no industry standard, generators make noise and at some point the sound level was checked during design or QC inspections. In other words, this is an undesirable sound level to be used as a back up generator in a home environment.

What Generac 8000K unit is CA Carb approved ? Does outlets include 240 volt connection? Does this model have a dual fuel kit or version for natural gas ?
Asked by: Jimbo
Generac's response is incorrect (come on now!). It does indeed have two 120v duplex outlets, however, it also has a 120/240v L14-30R receptacle.
