When the lights go out you want a fast-acting automatic home standby generator to protect you from power loss. The Generac Model 6551 22,000 Watt (22KW) Air-cooled propane/natural gas powered generator is ideal for home use. Within seconds of losing power this unit starts up automatically without the hassle of manual startup. Packaged and pre-wired with just about everything needed it makes for easy installation and connects to your home's electrical system and existing natural gas fuel supply. So the next time the lights go out, home or away, you're protected by 22,000 watts of standby power.
Hands-Free Automatic Operation
Nobody wants to venture outside or fumble around in a dark cellar or basement during a storm trying to locate a fuse box. The Generac 6551 is ready to run once all the LP or natural gas connections are hooked up. No manual operation, no fueling and no more extension cords. Within seconds of an outage this generator responds so you don't lose access to heat or refrigeration.
The unit can be programmed to perform a weekly exercise at the time of your choice, so it will be ready for continuous and reliable operation on a moment's notice. For convenience, it also offers clear, digital controls, an at-a-glance status indicator, and an external GFCI outlet to accommodate your outdoor power needs.
Superior Technology for Secure Output, Quiet Operation, and Durability
Worried about those sensitive electronics and appliances like computers and HVAC equipment? Thanks to Generac's exclusive True Power Technology, this generator provides clean, continuous power so that equipment can be operated without the concern unexpected power surges bring. Disturbing the neighbors isn't an issue either. Thanks to Generac's patented Quiet-Test technology this unit is as quiet as an idling car so nobody has their routine affected.
The generator's aluminum enclosure offers superior corrosion resistance and is protected by Generac's proprietary RhinoCoat system--a unique process that binds the paint to the metal surface for a long-lasting, durable finish. This allows the generator to sit outdoors and withstand harsh weather conditions without developing an unsightly appearance.
Rugged, Worry-Free Design
Designed to accommodate larger electrical loads the 6551 features the high-performance exclusive air-cooled Generac OHVI® Engine. Able to keep up with rapidly changing conditions this engine optimizes power swiftly and efficiently.
This Generac generator meets CARB requirements. It requires a Group 26R 12-volt minimum 525 CCA battery (sold separately).
What's in the Box?
