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.

Great Generator Generac XT 8000E
By Lowe's Guest from Winchester, VA, USA on Apr 26, 2014
Easy setup. A great investment and Generac is a very reliable Company that stand by their products. Lowes did a great job making my purchase correct. I had to return my generator because of shipping damage. Lowes was very great and made my purchasing experience very enjoyable. I feel this generator will last a long time with the reputation of Generac as well as Lowes. The generator is going to be doing double duty as it will power my shop and in an emergency our home. The generator can be move around easy and start up is great. With a good maintenance schedule and care given this unit we''ll be OK. I will write another review when I have more time on the unit I would recommend this generator to a friend.

Great Product
By delmar d. from Regina, SK on Apr 18, 2014
I've researched generators for months and finally decided on this unit. I read many reviews and this looks like the unit to keep my house running. Setup took less than 1/2 hour. The sale price was appealing! The only blip was the washers for the wheels were to small for the pins, went to the hardware store and picked up the right size. The next thing to get with this unit is the 30a Generlink that will attach behind the meter and has the built switch.
