Kohler is a well recognized brand and most people associate it with high quality bathroom fixtures. Kohler was actually one of the first manufacturers of standby power generators. They built their first generator in 1920. What's cool about that? That means they have been building and perfecting generators for over 90 years.

This 20kW standby generator is no exception. Let's start with the Kohler engine manufactured right in the heart of America ,Kohler, WI. This engine has hydraulic... more

Kenneth's Experience With Power Equipment Direct
Web Site


"Purchased my generator on line at Elect.Generators Direct based on the recommendation of two friends. Process was easy and shipping was great. Because I live in Washington where it snows, I also purchased the carborator heater. My only complaint with the ordering process is that the person taking my order did not recommend items others purchased with their order as is often seen on other web sites. For example, the description of my generator indicated it included the mounting pad. Turns out it was built in the body of the generator when what I wanted was the 3" concrete mounting pad. Had to place a second order for that. Upon seeing that I was ordering the carb heater, should have offered the battery heater which I purchased later on a third order."
