Comment:
I purchased a 17KW generator in 2006. Ran rough and multiple repair visits to get it to run properly. In 2014 after 8 years of nominal use(15 min per week) the rotor and stator needed to be replaced. Repairs were to be $2680 and no warranty applied. Bought a new Kohler 20KW, good riddance Generac.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
