Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great installation Job The Generac was installed just yesterday and I was impressed by the 3-man team as they did a professional and quick installation. The unit looks great, is quiet enough to not intrude on neighbors or our household and initial tests indicate it will meed our total house needs. I'll review again in the event of a significant power outage which will give me a basis for comment on its performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looking forward to having peace of mind Yesterday I signed my contract through Generator Supercenter for a Generac 22KW Guardian Home Generator. Their representative, Jason, was very knowledgeable in Generac products, and was able to answer all of my questions. I truly look forward to having peace of mind in the event of a power outage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Generac should pick dealers and installers better Unit will not run without pulling enough natural gas that every pilot light in my house is snuffed out on start up. Over 12000 dollars spent for something that I can't use without having to relight everything. And cannot (even showing what it does and paying another 700 dollars to dealer) get anything accomplished except for them "turning up pressure and installing regulators at every appliance which kicks my cook stove out another 6 inches from wall. It is over a 100 foot run that is on the same 3/4 inch pipe as my entire 80 foot long trailer. Instead of putting different gas line in they have called and had a completely different system (different meter and nothing in my house attached to it) red tagged so I can't even afford to fix this issue. Even though no code allows this the company won't even spell to me anymore. 22kw is approximately 310000 btu, needing a line of 1 1/4 inches. By LAW. BUT no one to help the cash customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Purchase a 22kw guardian recently. Everytime we get out power would have too drag out power cord too hook up portable gen just to run the frig and freezer. This product will pay for itself in the long run not having to worry about loosing food and still be comfortable in our home. Waiting too get more information on the prw cell pack may add this too my system later. If u don’t have Generac it will be worth it

Does the product package include a manual transfer switch lever and the composite mounting pad?

Asked by: Izor
Generac products can only be operated with an automatic transfer switch so the packgage does not include a manual transfer switch lever, and a mounting pad is included with the model #7043.

how close to propane tank can it be?

Asked by: medicine man
The regulator for most LP tanks should be placed at least 8-10 feet away from the generator, while the required distance from the tank to the generator would be dictated by local codes. We would recommend consulting with your local inspector as local codes may vary and will supersede any manufacturer’s recommendations. If you have any other product-related inquiries, please contact us directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722).

what is the difference between model 70432 and 7043

Asked by: Linda JP
These are both revisions of our 22kW Guardian unit with 200 amp transfer switch. The only differences between these models is the age at which they were revised. 70430 is the oldest of these revisions and our newest is 70433, so our 70432 is our second to newest.
