Generators For Home Use: (Generac Guardian) 17 kW Steel 1-Ph



…Burns Natural Gas or LP; Steel Enclosed




This standby generator is best suited for: 1)medium to large-sized homes (recommended for square footage in range of 3400 to 4500); 2)small or home-based businesses (that require single-phase backup).



This Generac 5885 generators for home use model is a 17 kW Guardian (steel enclosed). Considered a good choice for today's large residential or light-commercial applications, 17 kW generators for home use unit can operate five or more appliances, a 4 to 5-ton central AC, and lighting and outlet circuits in your home's most-traveled locations. This model is normally not a whole-house generator, so it probably won't power your less-used rooms - but that will depend somewhat on the size of the application. Generators for home use machine should also run central electric heat in many applications, but don't expect lots of excess capacity for operating appliances or lights at the same time. We recommend that, to achieve best results, 17 kW Guardian generators for home use model be used in conjunction with a Generac-brand transfer switch (RTS Series switches designed for compatibility with Guardian products). You may want to consider Generac's 200-amp load-shedding transfer switch, built for single-phase applications; this state-of-the-art switch can help maximize the output of smaller standby generators for home use units, in particular those rated at 20 kW and under. This generators for
home use 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.

    Warranty


  • 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.
