Generac 6998 Generator Review

Welcome to Generac 6998 Generator Review. The new Generac 6998 7.5 kW PowerPactTM Home Standby Generator delivers the same quality and affordability that homeowners and sellers have come to expect from Generac.

As a residential standby generator, it offers features similar to the popular Guardian series. Generac’s powerful and reliable OHV engine powers the 6998. It measures 36″ long, 27″ wide, and 25″ high, weighs approximately 208 pounds and is rated at 7500 LP watts and 6000 NG watts.

The 6998 standby generator automatically supplies enough backup power for your home while protecting your home’s 8 circuits via a lightweight, indoor-rated, 50 A, NEMA 1 automatic transfer switch.

It’s a quiet unit that operates at 69 decibels. And comply with any noise standards in the area. It’s also a powerful system that powers your most important home and family appliances during a power outage.

Thanks to the automatic transfer switch, refueling, or cables, it does this without manual adjustment. In addition, the Generac 6998 7.5/6 kW PowerPactTM air-cooled standby generator for the home also provides smooth, clean power for your most delicate devices;

True PowerTM technology reduces harmonic distortion to less than 5%. This means significantly cleaner power quality, which means the electricity is safe for sensitive devices.

High-tech features make the Generac 6998 more than your average generator. With a Mobile LinkTM remote monitor, available separately, you can keep an eye on your device from anywhere in the world. As long as you can get wireless service, you can access your generator information.

This access to information includes operations, requests for services and subscriptions, and much more on your smartphone, laptop, tablet, and any other computer or smart mobile device.

While you are away, rest assured that your generator is safe; steel housing and powder coating protect the unit against corrosion and weather influences. Storm or no storm, your unit will survive.

The School curriculum covers an introduction to the National Electric Code and includes an emphasis on electrical safety, breakers and fuses, blueprints, grounding, outlets, splicing, and bonding.
