answer 2
Because there is no industry standard for testing sound levels on portable generators, we do not currently list a decibel rating for any of our portable generators. The units utilize an open engine, so they can be noisy, but are comparable to other generators of similar size.

answer 2
The portable generators do not have a remote start option, as it needs to be started at the control panel using the choke control and the recoil pull start. If you are interested in an automatic standby generator, we recommend considering 8kW Guardian series generator as it will recognize a power outage, start, and transfer to provide power to the residence without assistance.

Please explain the difference between manual and recoil start?

Wikipedia says they are the same, but when doing the product comparison of your 5982 and 5789, the big difference seems to be the starting method.

answer 2
The LP3250 unit is designed for use with only a 20 lb. or 30 lb. tank, but can be utilized with a larger tank. To ensure the unit will properly attach to your larger LP tank, we recommend contacting a local plumber, or the propane company that supplied the tank. Generac does not offer a kit or parts to attach to any other tank, but your local plumber will be able to ensure your connections are proper and meet your local code. The regulator inlet pressure from an LP tank should be between 30 and 100 psi. Please note that any damage to the unit due to utilizing a larger tank will not be covered under warranty.
