Generac 6243 17kW - Not Available After 9/2014



Generac recently discontinued their 17kw model to offer more valuable options for their customers. The 6248 (17kw) was replaced with the 6459 (16kw) and 6721 (16kw) models. If you want to upgrade to a larger size then it can also be replaced with the 6730 (20kw) generator.

The 6459 is the 16kw home standby model that Generac has chosen to provide better options to their customers. This unit will produce sixteen thousand watts whether you are using natural gas or propane unlike the 6248It is going to have the standard steel enclosure which will allow you to have the unit outdoor and connected to your home.

The 6721 is the same 16kw unit as the 6459 with almost all of the components except for the enclosure. If you are in an area that is close to salt water or just don’t want to worry about rusting we would recommend this model. The aluminum enclosure, compared to steel, won’t have any issues at all when close to salt water. Also you won’t have to deal with the eventual rusting that would happen on any model with an all steel enclosure.

The 6730 is a step up from the generator that it’s replacing, but that might be a better option for you. It is a 20kw generator with a steel enclosure. You’ll be able to get eighteen thousand watts on natural gas and the full twenty thousand watts on propane. With all of the added power that this model can offer you might be able to power your entire home or could add a couple of circuits that wouldn’t have been used previously.

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

Generac 6243 Review March 25, 2014
Reviewer: Ralph B.  
6243 was dropped shipped to Dietzel Electric in Michigan which installed the unit in VERY adverse weather. To date the operation appears to have gone well. Though the transaction was delayed a few days, awaiting order "confirmation", Jeremy Orlick did a good job in the transaction. So far, THANK YOU!!! Ralph Bodenner.

17kW Aluminum Enclosure/200A Whole Home ATS October 23, 2013
Reviewer: Thomas Yardley from Midland, TX United States  
Did the install myself. Had no problems. Did all tests, and on the load test had two water wells, clothes dryer, AC unit running and did not load shed the AC unit. The only things that were not running was my water heaters.  My home is 2400 square ft.,and very happy with this unit.  I was going to buy the 14kW but salesman talk me going one size bigger. Glad I did, and this unit had the aluminum enclosure.

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.
