Realslowww, You said: "I have heard from dealers on poor customer service as well as getting parts can be a problem and I called Generac personally to get some info on their products and was not overly thrilled with how they directed me on getting the information and the reference they gave me sucked because they had never sold any of the 33 horse motors". Here we go again with the "I have heard"... I have no idea what the public side of Generac customer service is like OR what the public side of customer service is like for any OEM I deal with is like. I don't deal with them, I deal with the Dealer side IF need be for the OEM's I deal with. A dead give away that you had an idiot was the supposed fact that you were told that they had "never sold any of the 33 horse motors". For the record, I am an Authorized Generac Service Center and have NO problem at all getting parts for the engines I deal with! You said: "The guy who sells them on Ebay by the name of Wolf gave me the best info and he was not a dealer of finished products just the motors". The most important information regarding this that I highly doubt you asked "Wolf" is, "What is the warranty on this engine, and how do I obtain Warranty should I need it"? You said: "Nobody locally sells them here, but Kaw ,Briggs, Honda and Kohler everybody sells them so I can see where parts could be a problem. You guy's commenting on this act as though I am doing the he said she said, well why is it I have been in business off and on for 30 years and have never owned one but have owned multiple of the other brands? Because Generac motors are not that well known and obviously have limited distribution. It is better to be safe than sorry that is all". Well, I really don't have much to say here that hasn't already been said... Other than what does being in this business on and off for 30 years have to do with anything? Fact is, Generac has been around for the same 30 years you have been mowing. You said: "I want the Gen because # 1 it is American made and # 2 it is easy to make it work for my app. The Dixie dealer went under and their are no Bobcat dealers either. My town is only 125,000 people and mostly idiots, we have a State University here". Ummm... I don't have much to say here either! Look, I have no stock in Generac, they are not paying me to say what I have said. I am just telling you MY dealings with them, how I feel about their engines and what my customers say/feel about the Generac engines! Honestly, I don't care if you buy a Generac engine or not, it's your money! But I think you would be foolish to do so being that you don't care for them to begin with, but more importantly that you said there are no Generac Dealers near you! Just my opinion!
