PRODUCT FEATURES: • Idle control reduces noise and conserves fuel • Low-oil level shutdown • Integrated lifting eye for easy transport and security on the job site • Electric start • Not for sale in CA • Manufacturer's Warranty: 2 Year Limited (Consumer) - 1 Year Limited (Commercial) ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL PORTABLE GENERATORS AVAILABLE Power outages usually occur without warning. Ideally, a homeowner is prepared with an automatic home standby generator installed and always ready to go. However, if a portable generator is the only option for backup power during an emergency, Generac's GP Series 15000 Watt unit is an excellent option, with enough power to run up to a 5-ton air conditioner and more. Also an ideal choice for job sites with high power requirements. RELIABILITY FROM THE START It’s in the engine. Because of Generac’s focus on power generation, we know how to design an engine that can stand up to the long hours of continuous use generators can be required to run. Generac's OHVI® engine incorporates full pressure lubrication with automotive style spin on oil filter for longer life engine. EASILY ACCESSIBLE CONTROLS A portable generator needs to be ready for use at all times. Generac added maintenance reminders on the hour meter, so scheduled maintenance is easy to track, and the convenient fuel gauge provides at-a-glance fuel monitoring. Many portable models have controls located in inconvenient locations and are difficult to access quickly, especially in the dark. We gave control placement careful consideration, with comprehensive control sets conveniently located for easy access. FRAMED FOR DURABILITY The hardened steel frame gives our portable generator cradles added strength and are a premium 1¼” thick, a full ¼” thicker in diameter than competitors' models. The addition of integrated brackets and impact resistant corners on most models gives contractors rugged options ideal for job site use.

    This is a great little portable generator. I took it out of the box and put gas and oil in and it started on the 1st PULL. Nothing start on the 1st pull out of the box but this did. It starts on the 1st every time. Great price and super fast shipping from AP Electric. Great value!
