Commercial Standby Generators
Generac and purchaser hereby amend (“Amendment”) the term of the original warranty for the generator (“Original Warranty”) from the term originally
stated in the Original Warranty to a term of ten (10) years or two-thousand (2,000) hours (“Term Extension”), whichever occurs first. If purchaser’s Original
Warranty had already expired, this Amendment revives the Original Warranty and replaces its term with the Term Extension. This Amendment also
amends warranty coverage in the Original Warranty to the coverage listed below from years 1-10 (“Coverage Extension”). The Coverage Extension shall
not retroactively apply to cover any warranty work performed before the date of the Amendment. For clarity purposes only, the amended warranty is stated
below in full.
For the period of warranty noted below, which begins (or began, whichever applicable) upon the successful start-up and/or on-line activation of the unit, Generac Power Systems, Inc.

Service Dealer, is found to be defective. Any equipment that the purchaser/owner claims to be defective must be evaluated by the nearest Independent
Authorized Service Dealer. Emissions components are excluded from coverage under this extended warranty. Emissions warranty coverage is detailed in a
