  • OHVI engine is specific to Generac generators, increasing performance and life by 3-4 times
  • Not for sale in California or Canada
  • Electric start makes life that much easier
  • Control panel is easy to navigate; engine controls, PowerBar watt meter, and LED illumination
  • Lean and mean design has an excellent power-to-size ratio
  • Full-wrap frame tubing (and metal corners) protects the generator from damage
  • Keep your generator in tip-top shape with the included maintenance kit
  • Fold-down handles and rugged wheels makes transportation easy

Bigger isn't always better; bulky generators many times are out of shape and have poor power output. Don't waste your time or money on a couch potato, get the XG8000E from Generac. This 8,000 watt generator is physically fit with an excellent power-to-size ratio. Unlike other generators that need prodding to get going, the electric start means this generator is always up and at 'em. You don't need a map to navigate its control panel; engine controls (start/stop, fuel shut-off, choke) and PowerBar watt meter are easy to read thanks to LED illumination. The full-wrap frame tubing (with metal corners) keeps the XG8000E from getting banged up. To keep the generator working as well as it can, be sure to put the included maintenance kit to use. The same engine that powers your car won't power a generator as effectively. Apparently only Generac knows this, which is why they have incorporated an excellent OHVI engine, which (due to its specificity to generators) will provide 3-4 times longer and better performance. Their dedication to home standby and portable generators has been unrivaled since their foundation in 1959.
