November 3, 2017 — Generac’s new XC Professional Series 6500W and 8000W portable generators feature a heavy-duty, fully wrapped, 12-gauge steel tube X Frame that protects the engine, alternator and fuel tank from damage.

A steel lifting pocket is designed to fit most forklift and telehandler blades. Additionally, the impact-resistant fuel tank design features recessed tank edges and a dedicated rocker zone that allows the generator to sway as it is transported by a forklift or telehandler without damaging the unit. For manual transport, dual-grip folding handle offers a locking mechanism that can be opened with one hand, and “never-flat” wheels with steel hubs make transport easy, the company says.

The XC Professional Series also features Generac’s new 426 cc G-Force engine, which utilizes full pressure lubrication, reducing engine component wear for longer life, the company says. The engine’s full-response air intake and targeted heat dispersal design ensure effective cooling, optimizing the G-Force engine for extended generator use on construction sites.

The generators’ Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)-compliant control panel features full-panel ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection. Covered outlets protect the control panel from dirt and the elements, while idle control conserves fuel and reduces noise.
