Natural Gas Fuel Requirements – 20RESCL-100LC16 (New) Fuel Supply Pressure kPa (in. H2O) Natural Gas - 0.9-2.7 (3.5-11)
Natural Gas Fuel Requirements – 20RESAL-100LC16 Fuel Supply Pressure kPa (in. H2O) Natural Gas – 1.2-2.7 (5-11)

The differences in the design changes made to the 20RESCL-100LC16 are an upgrade to the engine mounting block and the gas regulator. They were upgraded to allow for a lower gas pressure (3.5” water column). Benefit of the new 20RESCL-100LC16 - if you have an older gas meter with the new 20RESCL – an upgrade may not need to be made to the gas meter-saving you time in permitting and not upgrading you gas meter (cost savings).

The overall benefits of the generator This device is able to generate 20,000 watts of electricity, and the product's monitor can automatically activate the generator if your house's power goes out. The machine is capable of simultaneously delivering electricity to your air conditioner, washing machines, many types of lights, electronics and a dishwasher. Within 10 seconds of activation, the device can fully power an air conditioner with a capacity of 60,000 British Thermal Units (BTU’s) of energy. The generator is equipped with an automatic transfer switch that is able to handle 200 amps, and this switch features 16 circuits. The product contains a sizable engine that has also been manufactured by Kohler. This component has been tested in a wide variety of extreme weather conditions, and the motor is equipped with hydraulic valve lifters. The engine typically operates at 3,600 repetitions per minute. In spite of its incredible power, the generator will not cause your neighbors to wake up during the night, and the device typically produces only as much sound as an air conditioner. Vital attributes The product features an LCD that will allow you to view clear information in both direct sunlight and areas that have dim lights. The generator is able to utilize liquid propane or natural gas, and you can instantaneously switch the type of fuel that the device is using by simply pressing a button. The product features a durable enclosure that prevents corrosion, and this protective barrier can handle all levels of moisture. The generator is also able to operate in areas with a temperature of minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit. Moreover, the product's outer case is resistant to fires. The device almost entirely prevents harmonic distortion, and consequently, the product will never damage the circuits of any electronics. With a base that consists of polymer, the generator does not require mounting pads; however, you may speed up the installation by purchasing Kohler's compatible pads, which are made of concrete. The generator can be connected to a wireless management system that has been created by OnCue, and this product comes with an app that will allow you to control numerous electronics from your mobile device.

    Great Generator and it was a pleasant experience with this vendor. I have the generator installed for about 11 months now. Two small power outages during that time and it worked perfectly. You just can't beat Kohler quality. Strongly recommend.

    Very satisified with my purchase of Kohlers 20kw home standby generator. Not much to say. AP Electric had the best price as they threw in a free battery, generator shipped quickly, no problems with the install and best of all it works flawlessly. One minor power outage in the 3 months it has been installed. Power restored in seconds. Great generator.

    I have always been impressed with Kohler products. The 20RESA is no exception. My electrician had is installed in no time and it stands ready to fire up next time we have an outage, which going in to spring storm season could be any second now. AP Electric was very helpful in every step of the process.
