Generator « Guardian » - 20/18 kW
I have heard that propane and natural gas engines are difficult to start and/or keep running in very cold weather. How easy is it to start this engine in say -25C weather?
If you buy the optional cold weather kit you will be fine, the kit comes with a heater for the battery and oil filter to keep the oil warm and reduce friction on cold weather start. Had ours 3 years and its started every time.

Does it come with the transfer switch in the picture ?
Ours did, but we also changed to a full panel

What is the manufacturer's warranty on this unit if I were to order one today?
What kind of base do the generators sit on and do you supply

Very Happy with this purchase!
Purchased from Lowe's two years ago while they had a labor day sale which included the 200 AMP transfer switch. They also had 18 months free financing. Ordered it and got free shipping to store. Great deal! Note install can be a hang up. I got several quotes for install including Lowe's. Install prices are all over the place. Some were more than the cost of the generator. Do your homework. I installed Natural Gas & LP. I can change the fuel with the twist of a knob. The generator has not given me any issues. Runs the whole house including AC & pool. Great purchase!
