I installed this Manual Transfer Switch to power my homes critical circuits the correct way without risk of electrocuting the power company repair man. I like the way this unit is designed, it comes prewired with with the plenty of instructions that make sense if you take a little time to think them through. If you can't figure the instructions out, call a pro. Anyway, the switch has two load meters that are very helpful once you are powering your house through the transfer switch panel from your generator. The meters tell you how close you are to your generators limits. I found the installation straightforward and logical. I'm happy with the purchase. This can be a DIY if you understand what is going on in the circuit breaker panel, load/wire gauge code requirements, etc..

This item is a must have if you tend to lose power more frequently than normal as I do. An ice storm during Christmas 2005 when we lost power for 8 days convinced me to purchase a 5500 watt generator and this transfer switch. It got really old running extension cords from a 2000 watt gen I borrowed just to run the furnace to keep pipes from freezing. I can drag the generator out of the shed and have temporary power back to my major appliances, gas furnace and enough lights so that I am not left in the dark or cold in a matter of minutes. You do need to be more than a novice electrician to wire it up properly but once that is done it just a matter of connecting your generator to the outlet (inlet in this case) and flipping the breaker to the generator position to restore power and not worry about back feeding power back into the electric grid (electric companies frown on doing that). Don't forget to try to balance the wattage on the wattage meters when you test it as unbalanced loads can shorten the life of your generator. I have had this transfer switch installed for over 5 years, using it 2-3 times a year, and over all I am very pleased with and recommend it!

I purchased this 301060 GenTran Transfer switch for installation into our new home construction. As other reviewers noted, installation instructions were mostly clear. I chose to flush mount the switch adjacent to my dual 200A flush mount service panels. Unfortunately, if you flush mount this GenTran switch you WILL NOT be able to access the L14-30 connector on the GenTran Switch. In my opinion (and my electrician's opinion) this oversight deserves mention from both GenTran and Amazon. Flush mount solutions are easy though...one can either run a power cord from the GenTran's existing L14-30 plug to a remote (interior or exterior) service plug...or in our case, we simply cut a hole in the steel face plate of the GenTran Switch and moved the existing L14-30 plug, thus allowing ready access to the plug from the flush mounted face panel. Our installation was clean and professional. Heck, even the building inspector thought the relocated L14-30 plug was where it should have been originally installed by GenTran. Appreciating the Amazon price paid for this switch ($189), the inconvenience of relocating of the L14-30 plug was a real bargain!

My only complaint about this transfer unit is that it doesn't have a built in door to cover the circuit breakers. However, the price for this unit was on the low side, so I will only take off one star. It is too bad that they don't offer a door kit. They only offer a cover, which is in my opinion very overpriced.

The switch pictured is not what was delivered. Generac bought GenTran earlier this year, and apparently they have replaced the GenTran 301060 switch (pictured on AMAZON) with the switch from the Generac 6295 kit. It still has the GenTran Logo, but even the box has a picture that is different from what is inside. This was not a problem for me, as they are pretty much the same, but the meters are on the right and the Generator plug is on the top right of the box (shipped with cover installed and socket loose in the switch enclosure). You need to plan accordingly. I had no problems with the installation and everything was supplied.

I live at about 4000 ft. elevation in the cascade Mountains and have a 5KW diesel generator on wheels, and I'm able to roll it out of the garage with a 30 amp cable connected and have power to my propane furnace, fridge, and all the other essentials like X-box and flatscreen. ;)

Super easy installation and straight forward. Just remember that you need a 60amp two pole breaker to feed the switch from your main panel. So a trip to the hardware store before this arrives from amazon is key.

Now when my town has two day outages, I'll be able to tell people to bring diesel in exchange for a place to party during a storm. :)
