Rated 4 out of 5 by The unit has come to our rescue many times When there have been power outages in our neihborhood, either caused by weather or by power company work, the unit has been very dependable. But twice since last October, the battery charger has failed to maintain the battery. This has caused some concern since it points toward a generic issue that needs to be solved to insure the continued dependability I have expected. The unit is currently waiting service for this problem. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by comact in size and is what I chase to keep my electric running at the worst times Just recently installed one at my home and I alm firmiliar with the Genereacts. Had a 11KW installed at my home in Maine and a 17KW at the Jersey Home. It saved my electric during the outages in Maine and I am sure that it will do the same here. August 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sometimes it is all what it's cracked up to be! Purchased my Generac Guardian 17KW with the 100 amp 16 circuit transfer switch. Upon arrival of the unit I was first struck by the quality of the parts and by the overall good looks of the generator. I knew it would be an ambitious DIY project going into it but I must say that any questions I had related to installation or startup were handled very professionally by the support team at Generac. I am more than pleased with the output as it runs my whole house including a central air unit. The peace of mind that comes along with owning this is a beautiful thing! Understand that if you're looking to do this on your own, it does require some electrical and plumbing skills. Either way you install it, you need this! July 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is Great! Our local Dealer sold and installed a system. We could not be happier with the product, value, and the professionalism by the dealer with the installation! July 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is exactly what I wanted. I am very pleased with the Generac Guardian 11kw generator that I purchase from Boyland Electric, Laytonsville, MD. The installation and set up went very smoothly. Justin was the employee that set up the installation and was very helpful in identifying which circuits that I needed.From the very beginning, I found this company, represented by Dan Turner, to exercise a genuine care and concern and provided just what I needed. The product is simple to understand and has a nice appearance. I felt no sales pressure as the product speaks for itself. Wish I had done 30 years ago. June 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by New Generac Owner Had my 17KW Home unit installed this morning. Tested and it kicked right on. Running entire house including AC and Hot Tub. I can finally rest easy during the storm season. June 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Upset with company I have been waiting for a replacement flex pipe for over a's been on back order. What's the point in having a generator that doesn't work?? Totally unacceptable. I would have rated this higher had the necessary part been available and I'd highly recommend my sales/installer company but his hands are tied. June 12, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Running now! Best home investment I ever made. My power is out right now, but the generator kicked in and we're still watching tv with the AC on! May 20, 2014
