This was my third Generac purchase but my first from Acme Tools and I could not have been more satisfied. I contacted Acme initially after delivery to report a dent/scratch on back panel caused during shipping and was immediately refunded the amount necessary for replacement panel. One month later, I contacted them again because the initially reported damage had also resulted in damage to the wi-fi module that was not discovered until installation. After providing pictures, Acme once again refunded the amount necessary to replace the module. It should be noted they also provided for repair labor costs for both parts.

I bought this in June and used my Amazon credit card with 18 months interest free. It sat for a while by the breaker outside. I had it finally installed this month and up and running yesterday. Delivery was easy. It comes on a large box truck and they'll put it where you want it as long as the truck can get there. Expect at least another $2,000.00 to $4,000.00 for installation and about six hours of the power being cut off while it is installed. Mine was $3,400.00 which included site preparation, the Generac pad, and installation. The LP tank, installation and trenching (free with purchase of gas), and first filling of gas cost an extra $800.00. I'm pretty mechanically inclined but I chose to not do this myself. I did have a separate LP tank brought out so the generator did not use my heat and water heater source. Some things I wish was readily available on a chart or something up front: 1) oil is 5W-30 synthetic and it takes 1.9 quarts 2) it came full of oil with oil and air filter 3) it did not come with the battery and the battery size was 29 group but I used a 52 group I think (whatever size is in my 2001 Honda Civic) as it was around and fit perfectly 4) the oil filter is Generac 070185B 5) the air filter is OJ8478S 5) the battery is installed on the right side by taking three bolts (torx bit) off (two on top and one at the base) 6) switch it to LP by pushing and turning the knob on the carburetor so it goes upside down. Also, the app is convenient but make sure your wifi signal is nearby as it has to link to the wifi to get the device activated. Before you setup the app you'll need the serial number from the switch and generator and the MAC ID off the generator which is on the front of the unit behind the front cover. The switch serial is under the panel on the steel where the lines are routed. Take pictures to make it easy. The app also defaults to texting, emailing, and pushing notifications so I went in and changed it. The app is free but limited. It takes $49.99 a year to unlock al the features. When mine first started up it said there was no utility power. After spending an hour frustrated and calling the electrician complaining, it was one fuse on the board (of 3) that was bad. I pulled it and tested the continuity and it was bad. They are ceramic so you can't tell by just looking at them. It had one spare in there and I swapped it in which fixed it. Go ahead and order a pack of them. They are 6.3 amp ceramic fuses.

Love the generac, we had it installed when our house was being built. Test every Wednesday at noon like like clockwork, lost power 5 ir 6 times in the past 4 years, one time was for over 2 hours with no problems. Electrician did an excellent job installing our generic. Peace of mind. Along with all appliance's. Heating and cooling, and lighting TVs, it also has our outdoor pole light, 2 freezers, everything works like it should.

I live in SE Texas, where storms, invariably, knock out power with great frequency. My portable generator has serve me well, but is limited on the load it can manage. The Generac doesn’t seem to have a load limit! Everything in the home is managed well with the system, including the a/c units. I only wish that I had purchased it sooner.

Here in TX we had a “100 year freeze”. Power was out all over the state. Generac did not let us down. The unit fired up and ran for 2.5 days. I loved how it automatically switches on and restores your power withina minute or so . . our heater(s), tankless water heater(s), stove and fireplace are all natural gas. In a 3,000 square foot house with 8 people (had my sister and her family over they had no power or water) . . this thing only used 1.5 gallons of propane per hour. I plan to upgrade to a 500 gallon propane tank AND run a natural gas line to the unit. We are planning to build a new house . . Generac will be a part of the initial design / build of the house. NOTE: If you are running electric heater(s), cooktop, etc, you will want to make sure this unit will do the job. This unit also runs my workshop. The heater kicked on in there (electric) and it really kicked up the generator / propane usage. I killed the workshop heater until power was restored. I did not want to run out of propane.

Bought the 22kw Guardian and had it professionally installed in July 2018. Best investment I’ve made in our home. I have two A/C units in a 4000 sq ft home. We live in a hurricane prone area so the standby generator was a must have. I had the delay added for the second A/C so they wouldn’t both start at the same time. I can say the unit has worked flawlessly, fortunately we only needed it a couple of time for a few hours but I’m confident it will do its job for the long haul. One tip is to keep it properly maintained as with all gas powered engines. Also have an experienced installer perform the installation, so easy to make a mistake and cause serious damage to your home’s electrical system
and ruin your investment.
