Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good little standby. No wiring comes with this kit, just generator and outdoor box with breakers. Runs great, remote really is not usefull. I have it running 3 ton A/C, tv, lights, side by side refrigerator, and some outlets. It's about the same loudness as a 6.5 HP lawn mower. They could have put a better muffler on it but its not to bad in the house. You lose warrenty if you self install but if you know what your doing its around 3,000 for install labor here. That's 2 generators in my book. Either way if it lasts 5 years I'm still ahead something new, bigger, and quieter will be out then its just plug in the new one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little pkg. If you are considering a GE generator you should know before you place the non-returnable order that the warranty is void if the install is not signed off by a plumber, electrician and the local officials. It was my intention to do the install and rough in the electrical and have a licensed electrician do the final inspection and connections, but without the signatures of the local officials and the plumber I have no warranty. This did not come to my attention until after the unit arrived and I read the manuals, at that point it could not be returned. Just something to keep in mind if you are thinking about the GE product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Consider the fuel cost carefully Do your homework before you buy a propane powered generator. They are awesome units, but the price to run it may not be something you considered. In CT we have a gross receipts tax which is targeted at oil based fuels that are not used for heating. I estimate that to be around $0.25 per gallon. If you run the generator off your existing tank, you will pay 25 cents per gallon more for all the propane you use. In my case the regional dealer charges me currently $5.50/gal for the 100 gallons I use a year., so I will get wacked $25/year more if I don’t use the generator. Recent storms have shown to be 5 day outages, so you need at least a gallon an hour, or 25 gallons per day or 125 gallons per storm. That means a fill up on my 80 gallon tank (which they will not promise to do in a storm) so then a bigger tank is needed. At the $5.75/gal rate it is $718 to run the generator for 5 days. You can probably get a hotel for that money and still have money to pay for the lost food in the fridge. Say you heat with gas and use 1000 gals, you rate is probably around $3.75 a gal and you have a large enough tank to not need a fill. The gross receipts tax will get you $250/year more on the heating side, but a storm will only cost you $500 to run the generator for 5 days. If you have natural gas – you are a lucky person – buy the generator.
