Nice! Is this a Briggs? How do you like it.I made portables work for decades in the city, where you still have water during a power outage.
Country living with well and sewage transfer pumps, and a 5ton HVAC unit, on top of normal household loads made the whole house genset basically a necessity.
The fully automatic nature of its operation is certainly a plus.

This is what I ended up doing. In order to get a decent inverter style that could run our well, lights, fridge, and freezers I was looking to spend 5k on the unit alone. This is excluding the wiring and transfer switch.
For just a tad more, I have was able to get into a standby model with an automatic switch that’ll take care of the entire house. The wife won’t have to mess with a thing if I’m not home. I don’t have to worry about keeping fuel on hand either since it runs off our house’s propane tank. All the little conveniences make it well worth it.
