Features/Benefits
More Power in a Smaller Generator
The compact 8kW1 standby generator is one of the most powerful units of its class with higher power output per square inch of its footprint - providing backup power to more of your household appliances.

Flexible Placement
Tested against the tough National Fire Protection Agency 37 standard, Briggs & Stratton 8kW1 standby generators can be placed as close as 18” from the home providing more placement options in your yard3 – perfect for tight lot lines. 

Essential Power
The 8kW1 standby generator covers the basics by powering only a selected number of circuits.

Premium Engine
Newly designed for standby applications, Briggs & Stratton® engines deliver improved reliability, performance and durability to meet your power demands during a power outage.

Durable Enclosure
Our enclosures are made from the same rust-resistant, durable Galvanneal steel that is found in the automotive industry and features an automotive-grade paint process which results in protection against chipping and abrasions.

4 Year Limited Warranty2
At Briggs & Stratton, we stand behind our 3-year limited parts and labor warranty and make it easy for our customers to work with us.

Quick Response
Automatically powers your home in seconds after sensing a power outage.

Easy Monitoring
Simple, trouble-free monitoring is a reality with our optional Basic Wireless Monitor.

Simple Maintenance
More service access to the engine and alternator plus a user-friendly control panel make repairs easier and less costly for homeowners.

8kW1 standby generators have a thermally protected fuel system which automatically shuts off the unit during an emergency. All-steel enclosure and base endure temperatures more than double that of aluminum and far beyond that of plastic.

1 This generator is rated in accordance with UL (Underwriters Laboratories) 2200 (stationary engine generator assemblies) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) standard C22.2 No. 100-04 (motors and generators).

3 Installations must strictly comply with all applicable codes, industry standards, laws and regulations. Running engines give off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poison gas so it is important to keep exhaust gas away from any windows, doors, ventilation intakes or crawl spaces. Carbon monoxide detectors must be installed and maintained in your home.
