Lugging a portable generator out of the shed and hooking it up usually isn't a fun process, but with the Generac XP8000E, the process will be easier. Portability is this generator's specialty, with the included locking and folding handles, along with the never-flat wheels. After the generator is all hooked up, have peace of mind with the knowledge that it is protected from damage. The steel cradle and metal corners defend the generator from harm, and the covered outlets are shielded from potentially damaging environmental factors. Generac's own OHVI engine is specifically made for generators, which means that it will last 3 to 4 times longer than the average competitive one. To keep this excellent engine healthy and happy, an incorporated low oil pressure shutdown function shuts the machine down when oil levels are dangerously low. Nobody wants to be without their tv or computer for an extended period of time, which is why you will love the XP8000E's TruePower technology, which provides clean energy similar to that of an inverter generator. America's favorite portable generator company is one you want to have on your side when you need power now.
