I cannot rate the generator until I see if it works as it is expected to work. Contact me after we experience a serious power outage. Or better yet if I do not contact you during such an outage you can assume it works fine.
The generator sizing, purchase and installation were all handled very well. Sizing of the generator was a key concern and the contractor was very helpful in making that decision. The contractor's installation teams were all very professional. The installation of the generator was done in winter with snow on the ground and the contractor's outside team constructed the pad, delivered and installed the generator very well. The electrical team did an excellent job of installing the transfer switch and hookup to the generator and explained what they were doing each step of the way. We are very pleased with this job well done.
Really bad experience, I bought the Generator back in November 2012 as of today May 2013 the gas installation is not completed because the pluming company recommended by Home Depot is no longer working with Home Depot. I am still for Home Depot to resolve the situation and have been more than 2 weeks without receiving a resolution.

We will contact you immediately regarding the gas installation for your Home Depot generator installation. I apologize that this has taken so long to resolve. Home Depot stands behind our installations 100% and we will do what it takes to correct the issues.
The unit hasn't been actually used yet. It had to be moved and reworked which took a week extra. Then the gas cable had to be ordered and took another week. The electrician was great. He got the unit moved to where it should have been placed. He said we were to receive $200 for our delays, but the bill was already paid. Will we get a check sent to us? Please respond via email. hank you, D. Brill
5 months from order to install. Process was very uncoordinated. Workers from various companies did not known who was doing what. 25 foot tape measure stolen from my tool box. Gas fitter would not stay on job. Installers made multiple trips and did not accomplish any work. Gas fitter departed my property, went somewhere and broke his wrist and did not want to return leaving me w/o gas service. Owner of company had to come out to make sure gas service was restored. Gas hook up improperly installed. I could smell gas in house. Gas fiiter made big hole in side of house when pipe should have been installed through concrete instead of through siding. Corrections made by another gas fitter. Very poor installation.
Poor communications Your contractor was not responsive to phone calls Generator was not installed properly, it failed inspection Your contractor did not follow-up I follwed up with the town inspector and completed Why should I pay for services that were not performed satisfactorily

They arrived on time and went right to work. I was putting in a new breaker panel and they had to put conduit under the house too and it all went smoothly. They did not take a break and was done in 7 hours when the estimate was from one to two days.

Review 12 for Generator Installation
Timely, well qualified, excellent coordination on scheduling and team work, worked fast and hard, outstanding in all categories!!!
From the first phone call to Home Depot, I have had nothing but good experiences with both the store and the installer. Both kept me up to date on the process, and WC Electric was terrific in installation and follow-up. Can't wait for a storm to test it out!

Review 18 for Generator Installation
from Frankenmuth, MI, USA
Very professional approach to installateion. Thoughtful and curteous installers who worked very hard until the job was done.
The installation crew arrived on time, ready to work. They were very polite, respectful of me and the property. They took great care to make sure the work they performed inside our home was as clean when they left as it was when they came in. I could not be happier with the quality of the work performed by the installers!
