The Guardian Ultra Source 17,500 watt portable generator is one of the most powerful portable generator on the market. Powered by a 992 cc Generac OHV V-Twin Industrial Engine 992 cc industrial grade engine, a powerhouse that's renowned for its reliability, long life, impressive power and smooth, quiet operation, this generator provides enough power to start a 5-ton air conditioning unit.
For added convenience and safety when you need it most, the generator comes with a pre-wired 16-circuit, 60 Amp indoor rated manual transfer switch, power cord and outdoor connection box. This makes it easy to use it to supply power during an outage. With up to 16 selected circuits already pre-wired to the transfer switch, all that's required is to start the generator and plug it in. By flipping a single switch, the utility is locked out and the load is transferred to the generator.
A large, 16-gallon capacity fuel tank give the generator a 10-hour run-time at half-load capacity, ensuring you have the power you need. An easy electric start eliminates the need to pull a rope. A simple push of the ignition and an automatic ignition timing sets the spark for easy starting and optimum operating performance. The generator runs on gasoline and meets all EPA emissions requirements.
To keep your electrical equipment running, the generator includes nine outlets, including a 50 Amp high power outlet, three twistlock plugs and two GFCI protected duplex outlets. The generator also includes heavy-duty 13-inch all terrain tires, ensuring that you'll get the power to where you need it the most, a full 1.25-inch tubular frame, battery charge cables and a maintenance-free battery. The generator measures 38.5-by-30.75-by-48.5 inches (HxWxL), weighs 525 pounds and is backed with a 2-year limited warranty.

After searching for a long time for a portable generator to run the whole house, I found this one. This was an excellent purchase and my family is grateful that we have this now. Can run the whole house with air-conditioning. Generac reliability. I recommend highly.
Awsome Generator!!!!, December 6, 2008 By J. Palazzo Jr.
This thing is a monster. Runs my entire house. I have a well pump, septic, and Furnace. Didn't even 1\2 load this thing. Best generator I have used. Comes with the 60A panel box and the outside plug box. I hooked up most of my 2 story house to this thing and it works like a champ. For all this includes you can't beat the price and quality.
