Product Description

Engine and vital components

Developed by Generac, the OHVI engine has a system that delivers pressurized oil to most of the motor's components, and as a result, the engine can last much longer than other motors. The generator is equipped with a sensor that automatically detects low oil pressure. The device also monitors the viscosity of the oil, which is a factor that can affect the overall performance of the engine. This state-of-the-art sensor is able to deactivate the generator if the oil pressure dips below a preset level. The engine's filter has two major barriers, and these components can catch especially small pieces of dirt and clumps of carbon. The generator also features a monitor that is able to detect a power outage. Typically, the generator will be activated within seconds of a loss of electricity.
Outstanding features

The product has a thick enclosure that is made of steel, and this barrier is resistant to fire and water. According to numerous analyses, this generator can operate in especially cold environments. Moreover, the device can withstand wind speeds of up to 150 miles per hour. The product's electricity has harmonic distortion of less than 5 percent, and consequently, the generator is fully compatible with electronics that are particularly sensitive. The device features a controller with an LCD display that has color-coded buttons and lights that provide numerous types of notifications. The Generac Guardian 6237 8kW Generator with 50A 10-circuit Transfer Switch can run on natural gas or propane. Vital features of the generator include the following:

• Starts automatically for 24/7 backup power protection
• Continuous fuel source from your home - LP or natural gas
• Digital controller with LED status and fault indicators
• Generac OHVI engine
• All-weather composite enclosure
• Manufacturer's Warranty: 5 Year Limited
Installing the generator and its accessories

This product is manufactured in the United States, and Generac will confidently provide a five-year warranty when you purchase the generator. The product comes with a particularly durable mounting pad and a 1-foot fuel line. The generator utilizes a battery that can produce 12 volts and 350 cold cranking amps of electricity, and this component is sold separately. You may also desire to purchase the Mobile Link accessory, a remote monitoring system, which will allow you to monitor and evaluate the product's performance by utilizing your mobile device and your computer.

According to numerous analyses that have been conducted by a third party, you can install the generator 18 inches from your house as long as the device is not close to any vents, openings or windows (subject to local building codes). The generator also meets or exceeds regulations of the EPA and the California Air Resources Board. If you have any questions about the device, you call Generac and receive 24/7 customer support.

    I needed a home standby generator for years. Finally purchased this generac 6237 8kW home standby generator. Cost effective solution for my needs. Great price, fast shipping and no tax. Very Satidfied


  2. Generac 6237 is the Best

    Product Review Rating: 5/5

    on

    Smartest decision I made was to purchase this Generac 8kW. Way too many power outages in the last couple of years and the nightmare that goes along with them if more than a couple of hours. Finally said enough is enough. I did not have the budget to get a generator to power up the entire house but this 8KW generator does the job and powers up all the essential circuits that I need. Great customer service from AP Electric. I did not really believe them when they said it would ship the same day. I placed the order in the morning and by the afternoon I had an e-mail that provided me with the tracking information. Generator arrived in 2 days. My electrician said it was a snap to install. Only one brief power outage so far and generator performed as advertised. Great transaction. Thank You AP Electric!!

    So far so good. Installation. Was a breeze and we called the factory techs one time with an issue and they walked us right through on the phone. The generator does it's self test every week and I get text and email when the self test is running. The remote monitoring feature is wonderful. I hope I never need it but feel confident that if I do it will be there on the ready.

    I now have my generator installed and operational. I have a sense of security that I haven't had in years. The generator is installed at my vacation home which I rent out. Previously I would shut down the place in November as I feared a blackout would cause the pipes to burst due to extremely low temperatures. I have already rented the place for a week in December so t won't be long before the generator pays for itself.

    Submitted on December 19, 2011
    I had received a few estimates from electricians for installing a standby generator. They all were going to install a Generac purchased from their supplier. Needless to say their figures were much higher than the Generac I purchased from A.P. The savings were terrific, the rep consult on the phone concerning the model and the accessories was right on. The delivery came on the date promised, it was included in the price. The delivery came off without a hitch and all of the materials which came with the generator were packaged properly and not damaged in any way. My electrician came and uncrated the package and now am waiting for the final installation. A great deal all around. Thank you!

    From time to time you find a company that is a pleasure to do business with. AP Electric & Generator has been one of them for me. From start to finish the transaction was perfect. They provided me with the answers to my many questions along the way in between the time it was ordered to the time I received it. Once it is installed which should be soon I will enjoy Generac's fine product reputation while it keeps us warm,dry and comfortable. All in all a 5 star transaction.

    I recently ordered a Generac Generator from AP and was totally impressed with the customer service. They called to check on my ordering within a day. I talked to them as they wanted to make sure there was no fraudulent activity on my credit card and then told me the generator would be on its way the next day! I had been waiting for 2 months with another company and after cancelling my order, they still haven't returned my money. But, that's another story. AP Electric are great. I highly recommend them.
