MILWAUKEE, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Stratton Corporation's
(NYSE:BGG) new 25-kilowatt^1 (kW) liquid cooled standby generator is equipped
with commercial-grade features and was designed with residential homes in


"Our new 25-kW^1 liquid cooled standby generator offers commercial-grade
features and benefits, so homeowners with larger residences can have peace of
mind that their power will stay running throughout a power outage," said
Amanda Grandy, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Standby Power. "It's
the tailor-made backup power solution for homeowners with more electrical
needs than our smaller generators can meet, but who are still seeking a more
economical option than our larger 35-kW^1 unit."

The new 25-kW^1 home standby generator is powered by an automotive-style,
dependable engine that delivers quality power to sensitive appliances and
electronics such as computers, in addition to powering a home's larger
electrical needs, including electric stoves and air conditioning units.

The unit's user-friendly control panel has a scrolling LED display for
easy-to-read information and troubleshooting. With added accessories such as
InfoHub™, a wireless generator monitor that communicates with your computer,
smartphone, tablet or our Basic Wireless Monitor, it is easy to know how your
standby generator is performing whether you are home or away.

Custom power solutions are available to automatically manage power to
household appliances and prevent generator overload. The Load Control Center,
a patented power management technology exclusive to Briggs & Stratton, allows
a unit to manage power to multiple high-wattage appliances while powering all
of the essentials, such as lights or the refrigerator. This generator can even
power homes with two air conditioners so homeowners can comfortably live
through a power outage.

The unit's commercial-grade enclosure is made of automotive-grade,
corrosion-resistant galvanneal steel. It features a hinged roof that has gas
springs for easy opening, while strategically placed ventilation pushes
exhaust up and away from the home and surrounding landscaping. Removable front
and back panels make access easy and maintenance faster.

A four-year limited parts and labor warranty^2 comes standard on each 25-kW^1
home generator unit. For more information about this generator or to locate a
