The leader in standby power generation, Generac® Power Systems, Inc, Waukesha, Wis., has brought to market its updated professional-grade line of portable generators, the Generac XP Series.

“The XP Series portable generators are engineered specifically with professionals in mind,” says Cathy Olig, senior channel manager, Generac. “We upgraded the series with many features that will make it an even more valuable tool on any job site.”

The Generac XP Series (XP6500E pictured right) is notably more substantial than many portable generators on the market. It features impact-resistant cast metal corners and a heavy-duty hardened steel tube exterior. Additionally, integrated handle supports and brackets are engineered as part of the casting for even more durability, and an integrated lifting eye makes these generators easy to transport and keep secure on the job site.

Every XP Series generator is powered by a Generac OHVI® engine – designed specifically for generator use and built to last three to four times longer than many competitive engines on the market. The XP10000E model offers one of the largest outputs from portable generators on the market today. Generac Introduces Updated XP Series Portable Generators – Ideal for On-site Construction Use
