Note for California residents: This model is not CARB-compliant. Units sold to California must be CARB-compliant.

Reliability From the Start

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. Cast iron cylinders add longevity, not found on every portable generator 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.
