Features and Benefits

Designed for Easy Installation & Maintenance
The Briggs & Stratton 12kW Standby Generator is 50% smaller than the previous Briggs & Stratton 12kW Standby Generator. It is also 60% quieter than our previous 12kW generators. The unit is easy to move into installation location with a two-wheel dolly. Our generator is approved for installation as close as 18″ to a building. With a removable roof and side panels, it provides better service access to the engine and alternator.

Compact Size
The smallest generator footprint in its class is perfect for small properties.

Symphony II Power Management System
The patented Symphony™ II power controls provide a managed power solution that gives you access to every powered item in your house, just not at the same time. By using power management modules, appliances become prioritized and turn on and off based on need and the electrical load placed on the generator.

Commercial-Grade Briggs U Stratton Vanguard Engine
The Briggs & Stratton 12kW Standby Generator has a powerful V-Twin OHV engine. With easy conversion between natural gas (NG) and liquid propane vapor (LP) during installation.

Quality Clean Power
Our generator ensures your electronics are safely powered.

Corrosion Resistant Enclosure & Base
Our enclosures are made from the same rust-resistant, durable Galvanneal steel and paint process that is used in the automotive industry, resulting in years of protection against chipping and abrasions.
