Generac XT8500EFI 8500W/10000W Electronic Fuel Injection Generator Electric Start Manufacturer RFB

Equipped with automotive technology and a load pickup response system that delivers smooth and steady power at all times, Generac’s XT8500EFI portable generator offers hassle-free operation in a variety of outdoor settings. Thanks to a carburetor-free design, the XT8500EFI uses Electronic Fuel Injection to eliminate issues caused by bad fuel and pesky gum-ups when the unit is in storage.

 

The XT8500EFI also features COsense® technology, which Stops, Alerts and Saves, providing powerful protection from hazardous carbon monoxide. Other distinctive attributes includes a ControlGuard™ that protects the unit’s control panel from Mother Nature’s worst and TruePower™ Technology, which provides clean, stable power ideal for sensitive electronics, tools and appliances. Whether you’re enjoying the great outdoors or simply seeking a backup plan when utility power is lost in your local area, the XT8500EFI can provide the power on which you’ve come to rely.

 

Refurbished units are clean condition and most look brand new.  Many are unused returns that have never been fired up, except during testing.   If there has been prior use, it is very minimal.  Our generators are manufacturer refurbished by Generac.  All units are fully tested for performance and guaranteed to work like new.  They come with a one year manufacturer's warranty.

Ran once

Ran it for about 20 minutes to test it the first day I received it. Started and ran fine. Today I put a load on it and it instantly flashed a fault code that generac could not decipher and shut off. Hasn't turned back on since. Extremely disappointed, now I have to lug this 200+ lb generator to a dealer where they will look at it in person and hopefully honor their warranty.

won't start

Frustrated, is an understatement. Some times it would start, some times not. Last time we lost power and "need" the generator, it would not start. Called Generac tech support, all they could really do is direct me to an authorized repair service. (50 miles away).
Finally figured out what the heck was going on. (1) the battery that comes with the unit is 12 volts and rated for 9 amps (2) in the owners manual.it says to hook the battery charger up to the generator every 3 months for 12 hours. .Battery is dead by then. !!
Since the generator is used only for emergencies, it sits unused for a month or more. WHAT WAS HAPPENING ?? Something was draining the battery when the generator was in the "off" state. What I found, was that something ( I suspect it is the COsense circuit) was pulling 25 milliamps from the battery 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for months. Normally after 3 weeks the generator would not start. .025 amps X 24 hours X 30 days = 5.25 amps More than half of the 9amps that the battery can supply!!
The fix was to hook up the battery, to a floating recharging power supply and leave it connected all the time. Disconnecting it when running the generator. It now starts on the first turn of the key.
