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.

What is the Decibel rating on this unit? 

What is the Decibel rating on this unit? 
Asked by: Tswizzle
Generac does not publish decibel levels for portable generators, as there is no industry standard. If you would like to hear the unit for yourself, we recommend visiting your local retailer store to have them run a unit for you to gauge the sound level.

Asked by: bob
At a minimum, the Generac model #7686 should have 5 ft. of clearance on all sides especially from windows, doors, vents, and crawl spaces.

8000-Watt Gasoline Powered Portable Generator is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.

Once the oil and fuel was added, it started right up. It is relatively quiet. The wheels and handle are great to move this generator around. Having a run time meter is very nice. My contact with Generac was very positive and was appreciated. I believe if your needs fall within the 8000 watt range, this generator would serve you well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've not used the generator for an extended period of time yet (it was purchased for home backup)... I've not used the generator for an extended period of time yet (it was purchased for home backup) but it was assembled quickly, started up nicely, had power in all outlets and ran steadily for 20 minutes or so. It appears to be very solid and well constructed and should power most of our home if we have an outage. Home Depot delivery was fast and I was happy with the delivery service and with Home Depot Customer Service. I did a bit of research and decided that Generac was a trusted brand and the 8K watts should be high enough to cover current and future backup power needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Generator Purchased 2 GP 8000 Watt portable generators for back up power in case of a power failure at the campsite that we operate. We had a power failure a couple of weeks ago, and staff hooked up one generator at the beach washroom/canteen and one at the main washroom with showers in the campground. Both Generac generators performed flawlessly in running both facilities which have well pumps, sewage pumps as well as a fridge and freezers in the canteen. I highly recommend this generator for temporary power supply.
