Home generator

We are in our new house now for about a year and my wife thinks we need a standby generator to power the house during a power outage.  An auto-whole house generator would be nice but not willing to pay that much.  Thinking of a PTO type, I have a hand full of tractors that would do the job.  10 or 12KW would be big enough.  It would be just for the home-no other buildings.  What do you think and what works for you?  How reliable are those box store generators?
