AP recommends the following models for replacement:

6462 - Generac 16kW w/steel enclosure & 200A SE transfer switch $3,479
6729 - Generac 20kW w/steel enclosure & 200A SE transfer switch $4,409

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.

6461 - Generac 16kW w/steel enclosure & 16 circuit transfer switch $3,379
6462 - Generac 16kW w/steel enclosure & 200A SE transfer switch $3,479
6729 - Generac 20kW w/steel enclosure & 200A SE transfer switch $4,409
6551 - Generac 22kW w/aluminum enclosure & 200A SE transfer switch $4,599

Great JOB!! October 10, 2012
Reviewer: Michael Mohon  
Thanks to everyone with AP Electric, from the first phone call to ensure my credit card was being use by me to the delievery of the unit. We are ready for winter or what ever Mother Nature has in store for us the 17kW Generac will be ready to keep my family either warm or cool by a flip of the transfer switch and we are good to go. Again thanks for all your help, Jenny and Michael Mohon

17 KW generator February 13, 2012
Reviewer: Henry L. Blanchard  
I always install 14KW units, but for a little more money it is worth putting in the 17 Kw

Generac Generator December 4, 2011
Reviewer: Karla Dobbeck  
Our new generator has only been in for a couple of weeks and last night, the power went out. The outage only lasted a short time but we hardly missed a beat. Our Generac started within seconds of the power failure, as promised. We couldn't be happier! We are also happy our unit checks itself each week.

Apelectric.com really got my generator out quickly. I placed my order first thing in the morning, and it shipped that afternoon. It was simple to choose the right maintenance kit and battery. The options just popped up at check out. I have already recommended their website to the electrician who installed my generator.
