BRIGGS & STRATTON 8-10kW STANDBY GENERATOR

 

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

 

Reliable Engine Power

Powered by a premium Briggs & Stratton® engine, our 8kW1 standby generators feature a newly designed engine for standby applications for improved reliability, performance and durability. Our 10kW1 standby generators are powered by commercial-grade VanguardTM engines that are design-engineered to dependably take on the most demanding jobs.

 

More Power in a Smaller Generator

The compact 8kW1 - 10kW1 standby generators have the highest power outputs per square inch of footprint in its kW class- providing backup electricity to more of your household appliances.

 

Flexible Placement

Tested against the tough National Fire Protection Agency 37 Standard, Briggs & Stratton 8kW1 - 10kW1 standby generators can be as close as 18” from the home providing more placement options in your yard3 - perfect for tight lot lines.

 

More Access to Air Conditioners

Combine the 10kW1 with a Briggs & Stratton® transfer switch to manage up to two-load dependent 3-ton air conditioners.

Power Solution Options

The 8kW1 standby generator covers the basics by powering only a selected number of circuits. On the 10kW1, choose between an Essential Power-Plus! system that powers a select number of circuits plus up to 2 air conditioners or a Managed Whole House system that powers all of your household appliances plus up to 2 air conditioners with our patented Load Control Center.

3 Year Limited Parts and Labor Warranty2

At Briggs & Stratton, we stand behind our warranty and make it easy for our customers to work with us.

DURABLE ENCLOSURE

Our enclosures are made from the same rust-resistant, durable Gavanneal steel that is found in the automotive industry, which results in protection against chipping and abrasions.

QUICK RESPONSE

Automatically powers your home in seconds after sensing a power outage.

MORE PLACEMENT OPTIONS

Tested against the tough National Fire Protection Agency 37 standard, Briggs & Stratton 8kW1 - 10kW1 standby generators can be placed as close as 18” from the home providing more placement options in your yard3 – perfect for tight lot lines.

8kW1 - 10kW1 standby generators have a thermally protected fuel system which automatically shuts off the unit during an emergency. All-steel enclosure and base endure temperatures more than double that of aluminum and far beyond that of plastic.

SIMPLE MAINTENANCE

More service access to the engine and alternator plus a user-friendly control panel makes repairs easier and less costly for homeowners.

IMPROVED COLD WEATHER KIT

Tested to start down to -20˚ F, you can count on Briggs & Stratton standby generator engines to start on the coldest of winter days and deliver the power your customers rely on during a power outage with a Briggs & Stratton® Cold Weather Kit. The thermostatically controlled battery warmer and oil heaters activate as the temperature drops increasing battery temperature for the engine to start. The 8kW1 kit includes a battery warmer and two oil heaters. The 10kW1 kit includes a battery warmer and an oil heater.

EASY TO MOVE

Unlike our other models, the 8kW1 - 10kW1 standby generator can easily be moved to the installation location with a two-wheeled dolly.

 

MORE CHOICES. MORE FEATURES. MORE VALUE.

Stop letting power outages interrupt your life. Protect your home and family from the uncertainty of power outages by keeping the lights on and basic household appliances running.

The new 8kW1 - 10kW1 standby generators affordably cover your home’s basic circuits providing backup power to your lights, refrigerator, television and other small appliances. Designed to fit any property, its flexible placement options and compact size make backup power a reality for many homeowners.
