Very pleased with our purchase of Kohler's 38RCLB 38kW Generator. It is a back up power supply form my office. While we do not lose power often it does happen once every 6 months or so. We have 2 outages since purchase and it worked perfectly.

Bought this for my home in the North Shore of Chicago - power from our utility company is poor with above ground lines. We have had 2 power outages in the last 3 years and our basement flooded.
Kohler is a great brand and while we have not had any longer outages in the last 4 months - we feel comfortable having the generator.
The Kohler 38RCL has been tested by our electrician and by us on 5 occasions and powers most of our house.
I feel this is a sound investment in a good product. AP did a nice job providing 3 installer references and we are happy with their service.
I can only provide a 4 star rating because we have not had the chance to test the generator during a long term outage but am confident that it will perform.
