Product Reviews

  1. Ready for next storm

    Posted by LP Schlosberg on 1st Oct 2013

    I ordered my 10KW standby generator after Hurricane Sandy and was told that they were on back order. Delivery was sooner than expected but in the meantime I bought a 6KW portable gasoline generator locally. That got us power after Sandy but had to fill it with 6 gallons of gasoline and start it manually every day. When the cold weather was over, I had a cement slab poured for the Generac and was going to install it myself but finally found someone to install it at a reasonable price. After being hooked up to the gas line it started right up and starts every Sat. morning to do a self-check. After losing power during Irene and Sandy, it is nice to know that the power will come on automatically whether I'm home or not during the next power failure. I'm just sorry I didn't wait for the new model that is 11KW for the same price.


  2. Super service and installation by Phoenix Electric in New Jersey

    Posted by Charlie on 15th Apr 2013

    We got the product after the storm. The installation and service from Phoenix Electric in Bridgewater, New Jersey could not have been better. Recommend without reservation.


  3. Customer is Pleased

    Posted by A&J Electrical Inst., LLC on 8th Nov 2012

    This item was purchased and installed for a customer with a 3k sf home. It ran for 8 days during Hurricane Sandy and they are more than pleased with it's performance.


  4. GREAT PRODUCT AND GREAT PRICE!!!!!!!!

    Posted by RICK B. FROM OHIO on 21st Oct 2012

    WE HAVE BEEN LOOKING INTO BUYING A GENERATOR FOR AWHILE AND AFTER LOOKING AT OTHER RETAILERS PRICES AND LOOKING AT NORWALLS IT WAS NO QUESTION WHERE TO PURCHASE OUR GENERATOR FROM. I ORDERED THE GENERAC 10K WITH NEXUS SMART SWITCH ONLINE WHEN NORWALL WAS OFFERING A FREE BATTERY,WHICH SAVED ME MORE MONEY ONTOP OF THE FREE SHIPPING,AND NO SALES TAX. THE PROCESS WAS FAST AND EASY,NORWALL SENT EMAIL CONFIRMING MY PURCHASE AND ALSO WHEN IT SHIPPED. I RECEAVED IT IN 7 DAYS AFTER PURCHASE AND IT ARRIVED PACKAGED ON A SKID IN EXCELLANT CONDITION AS PROMISED. I POURED A CONCRETE PAD AND PLACED THE GENERATOR ON IT, INSTALLING THE SMART SWITCH AND DOING ALL THE ELECTRIC HOOKUPS WAS NOT HARD IF YOUR FAMILIAR WITH DOING ELECTIC WORK. I DID HAVE MY PROPANE COMPANY COME AND RUN THE GAS LINE. THE GENERATOR WORKED GREAT AND PERFORMED THE EXERCISE CYCLE AS SCHEDULED, CAN'T WAIT FOR THE ELECTRIC TO GO OFF AND SEE HOW IT DOES.


  5. New Construction

    Posted by E.Carey on 9th Oct 2012

    We have purchased 5, 10K 100 amp generators for our new construction homes. We are always very pleased with Norwall's service and performance of our Generac generators. They cover the majority if not all the necessary backups we need. They give our clients the piece of mind needed during the worst outages.
