Generac 6242 17kW - Not Available After 9/2014
If you have determined that the Generac 17kW Generator was enough to run power for your needs then we regret to inform you that Generac has discontinued that model. Not to worry, you will be able to find a better value in the 16kW, 20kW and 22kW models just released.
The 17kW generators often times only provided 16kWs of running power. By redesigning these models Generac has upheld their promise of delivering affordable, reliable power to everyone. The 16kW packages are about $200 less expensive and you are getting the same amount of power. If you want to up your kWs, the 20kW generators offer a great value as well.
The model 6242 generator was a seventeen kilowatt (17kw) generator with a one hundred amp (100A) sixteen circuit fully automatic transfer switch. The transfer switch, except for the 20kw and 22kw models, is exactly the same in the new package and the generator was replaced. Now you can either get the sixteen thousand watt (16kw) generator package, the twenty thousand watt (20kw) generator package, or the twenty-two thousand watt (22kw) generator package. The dimensions on all these models will be physically the exact same size as the 17kw unit was. The 16kw will produce the sixteen thousand watts whether you are using natural gas or propane as the fuel option, but the other two models will differ in the power you get.
If you decide to go smaller than the 16kw model we highly recommend that you contact your electrician, or, give us a call before making a purchase. You can also chat with us live. We want to have you as a customer and are more than happy to help you place any generator order, but we also pride ourselves in making sure that anything you purchase is the right item for you.
