XT8000 Portable Generac Generator
By Lowe's Guest from Leland, NC, USA on Aug 26, 2014
This unit is all you will need in an emergency situation. Also great for running my welder away from my shop. The reason for the "GOOD" on design is that it would be nice to be able to know if you have a full charge on the battery or not. I can live with the trickle charger that comes with it.

Generac 8000w Portable Generator
By Mario L. from Manotick, ON on Aug 04, 2014
Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
Exactly as advertised. Assembly was simple and straight forward. Even came with a quart of oil. Electric start option is very nice. Worked on first try. Retractable handle is a nice touch as well. Makes for easy and efficient storage. Measured voltage output with various loads connected and noted little to no fluctuation. This product has lived up to all my expectations. Runs my deep well water pump, sump pump, furnace fan, hot water heater exhaust blower fan, fridge, freezer and my sensitive home theatre entertainment components. My Pioneer and Dennon equipment would not power up with my previous generator. This one has clean power for all my home office equipment as well as the internet router and Apple Extreme wireless hub and repeaters. Very pleased.

So far so good
By Lowe's Guest from La Porte, TX, USA on Jun 24, 2014
Got it out to the deer lease this weekend and ran it for 48 hours straight at less than half load. It didn''t do to bad on gas with that load. I left it in the back of my truck and let it get rained on Monday and Tuesday and started it Tuesday night and she fired up easy and ran like a champ connected to my air compressor for a load. the true test is to see if it makes it thru the entire deer season. I''m expecting to have over 500 hours on this unit before 1/1/15. I''ll let y''all know. I can''t say anything bad about it yet....

It Works!

It’s a Generac. Why would you expect anything less than excellence?

Covered all the bases
By Lowe's Guest from St. Albans, WV, USA on May 13, 2014
Purchased this product as a temporary power source for our camper during construction of our home. This unit handled the campers electrical demands easily and provided power for construction tools as well. I plan on installing this unit as a backup power source when our home is completed with the addition of a manual change-over switch for the needed circuits during a power outage. This unit was put in operation the day of purchase and has been going strong ever since, (about two weeks so far) with down time limited to checking it over periodically and fueling. The electric start makes it easy for the spouse to keep it going in my absence too.

Wish I would have done my research a little better
By Lowe's Guest from Carroll Valley, PA, USA on Apr 30, 2014
The XT series is only carried at lowes. Generac does not even carry this model. I am having trouble finding parts for this and locating a service manual. I did have it started and it seemed to run fine. I think it will work fine. Just wish parts were easy to find.
