Whether you need power at an outdoor event or in your home when your utility power goes out, Generac's XG8000E Electric Start Portable Generator will provide you with years of reliable service. Transporting 8,000 watts of power wherever you need it is made easy with the fold down handles and rugged wheels. To protect the engine (and the rest of the generator) from physical damage, Generac cradled it in heavy duty frame tubing. Speaking of engine, the included one is an OHVI engine, designed specifically for generators and provides 3-4 times longer life. For further protection, when oil levels are dangerously low, the unit shuts down automatically rather than let the engine be damaged. Unlike many companies, Generac doesn't like leaving the outlets exposed to the elements. That's why the XG8000E features outlet covers as well as GFCI outlet protection.
