Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good for the Price If you do not need a lot of bells and whistles, there are a lot of advantages for buying the smallest back up 7.5Kw system. 1. Cost less 2. Smaller engine uses less gas to run. 3. Takes up less space. 4. Cost less to install. 4. Not complicated to install. The only thing missing is it not having wifi accessory kit to upgrade in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy install Purchased this unit for back up emergency service. Installed in the Adirondacks where the power goes out all the time. Not unusual to have temps 25 below zero. I have heat tapes on my main water line and need to also power the refrigerator. Very simple to install and so far has been easy to use. Transfer switch has worked well for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from looking forward to the power going out I just had a 7.5kw installed at my cottage on a pond. My neighbor said the power goes out frequently since it is half summer residential area. Go ahead bring on the outages!! I run my furnace, A/c, Water pump, Fridge, hotwater heater and a couple of outlets for the tv and internet. Thank you Generac

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit for running essential equipment during power outage This unit is the best choice for running essential equipment during a power outage. The price is affordable too. In most cases you do not need a whole house generator which will cost you significantly more. This unit is compact and quiet. Installation was completed in one day. Very pleased so far with purchase.

Can this be manually turned on and off? Looming to use as a main generator for food truck

Asked by: Rock33
We recommend using a portable generator for a food truck. We recommend that you contact an authorized Generac dealer who will be better able to assist you. If you need assistance finding a local dealer, we recommend using our dealer locator found here:
