No, in order to provide power to your main panel you will need to install a manual transfer switch along with a power inlet box. You could also use extension cords to power non-hardwired items.

Strong and loud
I've had this generator for about a year and have 25 hours on it. I had an electrician wire in a 50A, 240V breaker / interlock and I back feed my main panel to run my house. Here are my impressions so far. Pros: 1. 10kw is enough to run my whole house, including central air and an electric dryer (not at the same time). 2. The power bar is a handy way to tell how much load is on the generator. I don't have any way to confirm it's accurate, but assuming each bar is about 2kw, most of my usage is in the 2-3 range (4 to 6kw) w/ typical lights, refrigerators, appliances. I'm happy I have this model and not a smaller one. 3. I've checked voltage and frequency during use from one of the outlets in the house. Under light load, the voltage is 122-124, and Hz ~61. Under full load, that drops to 118V and 59Hz. Based on some internet searches of specs for power companies, this is acceptable for voltage, and maybe OK for frequency. 4. Big fuel tank and long run time. 5. So far, it's been reliable. I exercise it for about 1 hr per month, and use fuel stabilizer. Trickle charge the battery as needed too. 6. A good value. Most "10kw" generators are actually 8kw, w/ 10kw max. This one is rated at 10kw, and 12.5kw max, so you're getting an honest deal. Cons: 1. It's loud, and there is no idle control, so it's all or nothing. Generac - I would have gladly paid more for a quieter version of similar output. 2. It's a physically large unit, and heavy. Not really a con, but measure your storage area to make sure it fits. I bought my generator from an authorized dealer. Two of my friends also have the same unit, and one of them broke down after 50hrs of use. He bought online and struggled to find a repair shop that would fix it under warranty. I think the small premium I paid (<$100 over the cheapest online deal) was well worth the dealer set up and peace of mind in knowing I have a local dealer for repairs. I also considered one of the inverter generators, but after some research, went with this standard model. The voltage and frequency seem to run within a narrow range, and its my understanding that most modern electronics have a transformer power supply that cleans up the power anyways. IMO, the inverter is a nice to have, but not necessary. After a year of use connected to my house, none of my appliances or electronics have shown any ill effects. Overall, I'm very happy, and buying a generator has guaranteed we won't lose power any more.

This unit far exceeds most available units.
Disclaimer: I'm an electrician. I purchased a used (70 hour) unit for a good price. The XG1000E has run perfectly since I acquired it. It backs up a 100 Amp electrical service with no issues. It runs the central air conditioner or the hot tub with no problems, and the usual refrigerators, microwave, TV's and computers. The only thing I did was change to synthetic oil when I purchased it. I run it quarterly and keep the gas tank full with Stabil added. They say you either get a good one or a bad one .... I got a good one.

Owned since summer 2014
I’m using this for most of the house through a 50amp manual transfer switch in the garage. The XG10000E is semipermanent mounted in my shed with custom exhaust through the wall to a automotive muffler and motorcycle baffles in tailpipe. It does a great job during power outages. Runs essentials that include water pump, AC, furnace, refrigerator, freezer, TV, and Ham radio station. Due to harsh Ohio winters I have a heat pad on the bottom frame to keep oil warm. Heat turns on when it drops to 20 degrees. I also have a Battery Tender on the battery. I’m on my second battery. Also exercise once each month. Nice peace of mind unit.

Excellent Generator
Unit starts quickly and run flawlessly. Put out enough power to run my 4 bedroom house with no problem.

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.

Made in USA
I purchase this Generac XG 10000 Watts Portable unit. Installing the wheels was the easy part. The oil opening is very tight under the tank and very narrow so that no funnel fits properly in. I spilled quite a bit of oil until I rigged up a hose to a funnel and this way succeeded to fill oil to the crank case. The battery connecting cables are also in a very tight spot. A real pain to connect. I then filled just about 4 gallons gasoline to get it running. As per instructions I pulled the choke switched the fuel to on position and push start button to start. It cranked but it would not start. I checked the spark and it was ok. Checked the fuel and that was ok. And so after stressing for an hour I gave up and decided to take it back top the store. Next morning before loading it on my trailer I gave it another try. I turned the fuel knob to on, pulled the choke real hard and it started with no problem first time. I concluded that the choke armature was slightly bent at the source and it prevented the choke to extend all the way. I easily fixed that just by gently jamming a screw driver between the choke armature and the obstructing holding plate. And it started every time since with absolutely no problem. As a foot note I want to say that this company is very bad about service. Most stores give you 30 days to return item, after that you’re on your own. Generac recommends places to repair, however, some are out dated and out of business and most others don’t want to repair Generac brand. Yet others are very far from where one lives. No one makes house calls. I had this problem with a previous Generac 7500 Watts. It ran ok for 10 years, then it broke and I could not get it serviced. I ended up donating it. Generac is made by Generac in the good old USA I recommend it with no less than 10000 watts for the whole house.

Powerfull
Lost power the day it was delivered. Ran flawlessly for 11 hours straight till power was restored. I live in a 2500 square foot ranch and I had use of my whole panel and this generator ran my whole house including the central air conditioner. When the ac would start the power bar on the generator would go to 3 bars, but once the ac was running the power bar dropped down to 1 bar. Impressive!

Finally Broke Down and Bought One
We live in the northeast and lose power frequently between hurricanes, tropical storms, snowstorms and national grid’s refusal to clear dead trees. We heat our home with electric so went with a XG 10,000 watt generator. Within three days installing the grounding outlet we lost power and the generator was put to use. The generator ran flawlessly for about 12 hours with one refuel. We have use it one more time and again it worked great. We were able run all major appliances, TVs , computers and the sump pump. Great peace of mind. I should not have made my family suffer for so long!

I have yet to use the generator. Since I got it we have had no issues. I guess the storm recognizes that Generac is on the job.
