(Guardian 17 kW): NG/LP Fuel Generator Aluminum Package 1Ph

…Aluminum Enclosure, Auto Transfer Switch

This standby generator is best suited for: 1)medium to large-sized homes (our recommendation in range of 3400 - 4500 square feet); 2)small or home-based businesses (that require single-phase 120/240-volt electricity).

This NG/LP fuel generator package from Generac, model# 6053, includes a 17 kW Guardian residential standby unit, plus Generac's 200-amp single-phase service-entrance rated automatic transfer switch (model# RTSD200A3). LP/NG fuel generator unit features a no-rust aluminum housing, particularly suited to coastal regions with salt air and high humidity. This is an excellent standby NG/LP fuel generator for large residential applications (square footage T-Rex recommends is 3400 - 4500), in that it will operate a combination of 4 - 5-ton AC, five + large appliances, and lighting and basic circuitry in all of your critical rooms - or, if you prefer, basic lighting (with nothing else) in an area as large as 5500 square feet. Keep in mind that this is not generally a whole house fuel generator unit, and that it may not operate your home's central electric heat. Generac's Guardian 17 kW NG/LP fuel generator sports pressure-lubricated OHVI motor, tri-lingual controls, and auto voltage regulation; also comes with its own composite mounting pad. The 200-amp auto transfer switch employs digital load management technology to increase effective output of fuel generator unit, allowing it to juggle larger loads than a 17kW standby model could with a standard ATS (200-amp switch comes with two DLM - digital load management - modules; can accommodate up to four DLM modules - other DLM units sold separately). This NG/LP fuel
generator model is CARB approved, available to California residents.

  • Important: See the shipping tab for information regarding our liftgate option, and residential versus commercial deliveries. At present, because T-Rex is shipping Generac products direct from the company's Wisconsin-based factory, any
  • residential delivery weighing in excess of 80 lbs will require the $75.00 liftgate shipping option. Shipments to commercial addresses (non-residences) remain exempt from these charges unless specified by customer.

  • 3-year manufacturer's limited warranty

  • Shipping

    NOTE: all Generac residential shipments weighing in excess of 80 lbs require our $75.00 liftgate shipping charge (by Generac policy). Liftgate service is optional for commercial deliveries. This policy change does not apply to shipments from other manufacturers.

    The T-REX Free Shipping Pledge:
    The manufacturers we work with are large concerns that ship multiple items each day. This enables them to attain the best shipping rates available. T-REX passes these savings on to our customers by providing free shipping to any commercial or residential address in the continental United States. This is the T-REX pledge. We will adhere to it even when a freight carrier adds one-time or unanticipated shipping fees. Try obtaining these terms from another Internet-based generator seller. You will not find a more customer-friendly policy than ours.

    About Lift Gates:
    Typical delivery trucks are designed to be unloaded at docks, or by forklifts. In other words, they are designed to deliver to commercial locations where such options are available. By contrast, a lift gate-equipped truck lowers heavy items from the truck trailer (which can be several feet high) to the ground, using a hydraulic mechanism similar to an elevator. If your delivery will go to an address not equipped with a loading dock, and you don't have access to a forklift, then selecting the lift-gate delivery option is a convenient alternative.

    A generator from T-REX can weigh hundreds of pounds. Without access to a loading dock or forklift, unloading one safely may require several able-bodied individuals. Delivery drivers are NOT required by their companies to help customers unload. Unless you are certain that a sufficient number of helpers will be available during the delivery, we urge you to specify the lift-gate shipping option before checking out. Charge for the lift-gate is $75.00, and is NOT included in the Free-Shipping Pledge offered by T-REX. We feel, however, that it is worth the investment.

    Residential Delivery:
    You need to inform us if your delivery will be going to a residential address. Freight companies need to know this because many residential areas can't be serviced by large semi trucks. The generator will instead be loaded onto a smaller truck tailored to home deliveries. A home which serves as a place of business (regardless of the presence of company name/signage), if located in a residential area, is still considered a residential address for shipping purposes. Please select the residential delivery option if applicable. T-REX agrees to pay all additional residential delivery costs, but to do so, we must be properly informed before shipping arrangements are made.

    To select your choice of residential or commercial delivery, please see the purchase options in the Add To Cart area.
