Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 53reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The new XP Generator is the best yet. Have owned several generators over the past 10 years. January 16, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Well built? These generators have a terrific reputation, which is why I bought one, however, this one is starting out rather dubiously. Upon arrival at the dealers, it was discovered the idle control wire leads were no longer connected to the coil. The dealer called and found out the part was in stock, but we still had to wait 10-15 days to receive it. Even after calling and asking why, and was told it would be overnighted, it still would take another 4 days to receive the part. Inspection/Service/parts backup are severely lacking here. Very disappointed. After the part was installed, the generator started right up and powered my whole home as promised. It certainly lives up to the generac name and reputation, once the part was installed. I look forward to not having to use it, but knowing it's there and ready is a life saver, as we live in Iowa and sometimes the weather can be a little unpredictable. January 6, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by great product only generator ill ever buy, great product design and quality July 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great generator We use this to power our entire home with a crossover switch when the power goes out. It runs our entire house with no problem. We have all electricity in 2500 sq ft home and can use stove, etc. highly recommend. July 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excelent, powerful and reliable I bought this unit to upgrade from a 5500 watt Generac. I find it is well built, easy starting and powers my whole house with no problem. Only two things I can fault. The semi pneumatic wheels get flat spots from the weight of the unit. This was remedied by replacing them with full pneumatic wheels found at a popular importer. The second thing was battery failure and finding a replacement. No problem, I just start it with a jump start battery pack. Have used the unit several times during power failures and had no problems. Good fuel economy also. March 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent features, unbelievable reliability I've owned my Generac XP8000E for 3 years and have had to use it over extended periods of power outages in our part of rural Pennsylvania. However, in between those uses it sits for months at a time. When I pull it out, it starts right up, even if I forgot to drain last years gas. Great product. February 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy set up and running Out of the box to a dry run was 1 hr. All has work great. Still have to wait for a full work out till my transfer switch is installed. January 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Features, Appears to be Solid Built. Purchased one in November 2013returned to retailer for exchange due to a few concerns. So far the new unit appears to be trouble free. Assembly is pretty simple and it appears that Generac put a lot of thought into the packaging so that there would be no damage in shipping and assembly would be simple. Started up immediately after assembly. Capable of running my well pump, furnace lights etc. It comes with a nice heavy 4 outlet cord, however I would prefer a cord that would adapt the generator 30 amp outlet to the house 30 amp generator receptacle box as this is a prime feature is to be able to run the house. But overall appears to be a solid well built generator January 1, 2014
