    Ordered a New Generator

    Wife wants hot water when the power is out. Our current generator is 13 years old and only a 5250 watt unit.
    Ordered a Generac XG10000E, the dealer has no idea when it will be in but it is on order.

    Congrats! We just bought a 6500 watt Honda for the storm.

    We have 25 of the Generac 10000's for work. If it doesn't crank over the first time, just tip it on end with the handle side up. It should start right up. Don't ask how long it took me to figure that out. :-)

    I wanted a Honda but they are just too costly for me. We were going to get a new one last year but decided to wait. Glad we did wait cause I would have bought an 8000 watt unit. Dang electric hot water heaters really like the watts.

    Isn't a 10KW generator a little light for this duty? I think I would've gotten something like Kenny has, a permanently installed whole home generator. Something like a 15KW. This way you could run almost anything in a standard home without much problem.

    Anyway, having a decent generator with some real capacity is a great plan.

    Most so called whole home generators are really only about half and I figured at least a 25KW (maybe) for our house and at this point in my life there was no way I would be doing that and frankly I want/like portable.

    I can definitely understand the want/need for portability.

    I think in the future I might get one of those PTO generators myself.

    You will be OK as long as you are mindful of what things you run at once, and do some manual load management Depending of course on how large of a water heater you have. At least the water heater is a pure resistive load, so no inrush current.

    The pto generators are really nice. I have a 14kw Winpower and got a nice 3-point mount and had it modified to fit the I-match. Is really a great unit!

    How does the 2520 handle 14kw? I was looking at at a 13-15kw PTO generator this summer but got side tracked and forgot all about it. Thanks for reminding me.
