  1. Easy as pie.

    Posted by Betty & Donald Cook on 12th Jan 2012

    Norwall Power Systems is really a benchmark retail site - great availability, lots of options, and incredibly easy to initiate and complete and purchase. I don't think any other site makes it as easy to find information and make a purchase. I would definitely recommend Norwall to my friends. They were recommended to us by our cousin who also has the 8kW Guardian by Generac.


  2. GREAT PRODUCT GOOD PRICE

    Posted by ED R on 25th Dec 2011

    SHOPPED FOR A WHILE AFTER BACK TO BACK POWER OUTAGE'S LATELY. POWER CO DOE'S NOT SEEM TO BE IN ANY HURRY. HAVING THE SECURITY OF A GENERAC GENERATOR IS GREAT. ESPECIALLY KNOWING THE HEAT WILL STAY ON IN THE COLD PA WINTER MONTH'S...


  3. Great investment

    Posted by Mark B. on 14th Nov 2011

    I live in a very rural area. When the power fails, the utility takes most of their full-time crews to more populated areas and makes us wait for the contract crews to travel to work on our power. I can pretty much count on outages of, at least, 24 hours at a time several times a year. The Generac generator has worked almost flawlessly and simplified my life. Just follow their preventive maintenance instructions. It's ok to do your own oil and filter changes, but don't be too cheap to hire a local service company to look it over once in a while.


  4. Best choice after searching for a generator

    Posted by John on 1st Nov 2011

    After searching many generators and deciding myself that this will possibly be what will be the most suitable for me and our home I decided to purchase it. To make sure that I had made a good decision I talked with our electrician and he verified that this was a great choice and would be perfect for our home. When our home was being built he was the electrical contractor and with his knowledge I felt very secure that we had made the correct choice. During our floods in 2010 we were fortunate that we did not lose our electricity as we have sump pumps which would have created a worse disaster if they were not able to function. We are looking forward to the security we feel this will provide us.


  5. Top Quality very dependable

    Posted by Sue F. on 31st Oct 2011

    Very relieved to have a dependable high quality Generac to supply me with power in emergencies...what a relief.
