A proper install of a unit like this will easily be more than what this unit cost. Unless you just so happen to have a concrete pad and gas/electrical wires pre-run already.

100 amp transfer switch all so wont be big enough or meet code in some areas were now seeing boxes with 200 400 amp boxes on new houses..so it may sufficient for partial run but the entire house .. code wise that is..

You may want to look into this http://www.interlockkit.com/ instead of the transfer switch. With this kit, in normal mode of operation, there is no extra switch in the circuit. However, there is no automatic transfer, if your interlock kit provides that.

that is NOT useful with a automatic system like these,, in fact it defeats the purpose of a automatic system.. if you want on the demand power when you loose power, you must use a transfer switch.. this is just for hooking up a generator unit without a automatic system..

Which fuel does this use? Gasoline, natural gas, propane or what?

this looks like a natural gas unit.. I'm looking for 36kw.. to power my whole house.. any deals..?

I got the 48Kw installed at my house, its a beast the best price I found was at northern hydraulic

either natural gas or propane @ 12kW

This would in fact power your whole house if you have a gas heater and water heater. Peak maximum on my house middle of summer @ 104 degrees is only 36 amps. House is 2100 sq ft. Nice find OP
