Briggs & Stratton introduced its redesigned 12-kilowatt1 standby generator system. The new 12kW¹ has the smallest footprint in the industry of similar power is 60% quieter than previous unit, while still providing homeowners with whole-house power. The new unit's 50% smaller footprint and front exhaust maintains curb appeal by providing more placement options around the home. Its higher-quality engine, premium muffler and re-designed alternator intake ducting improved the generator's sound quality significantly. The smaller 12kW1 generator is compatible with Briggs & Stratton's proven Symphony® II power management system, a patented technology that automatically balances the power needs of a home's electrical loads including high-wattage items like air conditioning units, stoves and electric dryers. The proven technology gives families uninterrupted, whole-house power with a more affordable standby generator. The upgrades on the new compact 12kW1 unit don't stop with its smaller design. A redesigned control panel includes a scrolling LED board that makes it easy for the homeowners to know if the standby generator is ready for operation or in need of service. The premium-grade Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine comes with an electric governing system for precision engine speed control, creating a quieter, more durable generator. The enclosure made of galvanneal steel provides rust-resistant protection for extreme weather conditions. The new 12kW1 comes with a limited five-year parts and three-year labor limited warranty3.
