Product Q&A

What's the maximum distance that the generator can be placed from the transfer switch? What is the length of the prewired cord and how far can it be extended?

Answer
There is no specific distance stated by the manufacturer for distance from the switch.

The prewired whip is 25 feet long and you must follow national and local electric codes. So, to put it another way, Briggs & Stratton will not dictate the length after their whip because if you use the right materials, spelled out in code, there is no limit to the distance you can extend.

We recommend you consult with a "Certified" electrician who is familiar with all national and local electrical code requirements for proper installation.
