Church mouse made a good point about cooling air. I was at an outdoor wedding reception and the band was using a generator to run the PA. Because of the noise, they built a little shed around it with hay bales, it worked ok for a while. Shortly into the first set let's just say the band went from smokin' hot to flamin'.
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
Government and pedophiles both practice buggering those powerless to defend themselves.

Why do you like them so much ?
Because they stand on a wall, and
say, NOTHING is going to hurt you,
NOT on MY watch .....
Just because it says 5K watts on the side does not mean (and it won't) it will pull 5K full bore.

In all honesty, a 12-15 kw Generac isn't "that expensive"... Like $3500k or so.
Then there's installation and the associated parts.
15kw is plenty for a ~1500 sq ft home.
My brother-in-law's 20kw Generac retails for like $4500. It's plenty big for his huge house.

OK, lots of great info here guys, thanks! So, I'm looking at moving it out behind my barn (just want it out of sight, that's one of the reasons I was thinking of putting in the garage). Now, my next question would be, does anyone know how deep you have to put electrical lines in Indiana? I've got a septic field out there, so I'm concerned about how deep I would have to put the conduit and line. Also, I'm not sure how the tie in to the electrical box works (12V in a car I'm good with, anything other than ceiling fans and light fixtures I leave to the professional), could it be wired in so that the A/C Heat pump isn't on the generator? I'm just thinking that if I can get a smaller unit, then I won't have to have as large of an engine and maybe get a longer running time on a tank of fuel.
