Don't waste your money on a Generac

I bought a 16kw Generac Guardian in 2006 from an authorized installer.Within three years, the amount of rust on the steel base and inner steel panels was tremendous.

No help from the company. To make it worse, the authorized installer mounted the transfer switch on the OUTSIDE of the house. He went out of business in the 2008 housing bust so I am up the creek. And guess what?

The transfer switch became such a pile of rust that I encased it in cedar shakes to protect it from the weather.

Out of code--yes I know.I only wish I had spent the extra $1,500 for a Kohler unit.
