    This generator was bought for my son, It was delivered on a Monday and he lost power on Tuesday, perfect timing. It performed well and carried his entire house load. this is my second Westinghouse and I am very pleased with the product. AP Generator was a pleasure to work with, Bob the sales rep, had it shipped that day and I received it from Wisconsin to Massachusetts in 4 days total. I recommend them highly.
