Generator Diredt Needs To Improve Delivery Mode
This generator was not our first choice ,however, the reason it was purchase it was able to meet the county requirements for distance to building openings,ie door and wall.The engine exhaust was directed away from the building which was a plus.. The installation of the generator and transfer switch went well.

Our complain is with the generator controller and the LED indicators which are difficult to see in daylight and the function buttons were had to be played with to activate.The... more

Not Running To Spec
I have had this generator installed for about a year. I use it for two things. One is to power at 240v/27A kiln. It works fine for this.The other is to charge the batteries on my off-grid solar system. When I connect it to my charger it is not able to maintain a consistent voltage about 110v at Amperages over about 20A. 10KW generator should be able to do better than this.

This generator is not designed for the applications you described and is not under warranty for Prime Power use. Most likely the failure to maintain voltage is a result of this.

From the manufacturer... "Equipment used for prime power. For purposes of this warranty, prime power is defined as application of the generator as a source of power where no electrical power service is available from a UTILITY POWER GRID. If no UTILITY power is available, the generator is considered the prime power source."

There are specific standby generators that are designed for off-grid applications. Generac EcoGen Standby Generators

The Design
Your store did a great job. Very friendly and professional. The delivery people also did a great job. I have only had the unit for a very short period. Time will tell how well it's reliability and long term use will be!

But I have had it long enough to know that with just a little bit more effort and possible little bit bigger overall size, the generator's access to the inside could have been made much better. It was designed as if it was not to be opened up routinly for any reason. ... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Price, Light Weight
Cons: Bad Housing Design

Briggs 10kva Is Great
I purchased a Briggs 10KVA generator from Electric Generators Direct and it went smoothly. It runs like a top and is quieter than I expected which is a huge bonus. I can barely hear it running when I am in the house.
