I have a 17KW standby on my house. It runs the 3 Ton AC, the fridge and pretty much all the electronics in the house aside from the electric stove and pool pump. In other words, it is like the power isn't even out.'
I have a Generac Unit that I purchased in 2005, I take really good care of it and it has not given me a problem.

When power is out I will power mine down every 48 hours and do an oil change, I run Mobile 1 and some Lucas Synth oil stabilizer in it.

Every 2-3 years I do a tune up, spark plugs, air cleaner oil change.

I have it under cover (pergola with plastic over it) so it is not exposed to the weather as much.

If I could install it again, I would put further from the house and put something between it and the house so the sound would be muffled more.

After I installed in 2005 I did not really need mine until 2 years ago, then between Mathew and Irma I had about a week each with no power. It was worth every penny I spent on it.
