Product Details

Generac Guardian Series 17 Kw Standby Generator - 6053

Provides essential circuit power protection for your home, ensuring the necessities remain powered during an outage. The most affordable automatic standby generator on the market offers protection for half the cost of central air conditioning.


  • Generac's Nexus™ Controller is the most comprehensive available. The dual line, tri-lingual LCD display allows for easy monitoring and management of generator functions.
  • Simple field conversion from natural gas to LP.
  • Generac’s OHVI® engine was designed specifically for generators. It outperforms most competitive generator engines with an engine life that is three to four times longer and has a significantly longer period between scheduled maintenance checkups.
  • TruePower™ Technology provides clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances.
  • QuietTest™ Mode for a weekly self-test that runs quieter than other brands.
  • External "At-a-Glance" indicator lights offer an easy way to tell generator status without opening the generator enclosure.
  • Added Sound Reduction with enclosures that are lined with sound reducing foam panels for further noise reduction.
  • Hour Meter monitors run time, providing information to determine maintenance intervals.
  • Easiest installation on the market and an excellent value when purchased pre-packaged with a pre-wired transfer switch, or customize your system by purchasing the generator and transfer switch separately
