Briggs & Stratton 26kW 40658 PowerProtect Backup Generator Features:

  • The Briggs & Stratton 26kW 40658 features a powerful commercial-grade Vanguard® M61 993 cc V-Twin OHV engine operating at a maximum of 3600 RPM. On LP it produces 26kW and on natural gas, 24kW.
  • The model is customizable to your home's power needs, with the optional Symphony® Choice Power Management.
  • Eco-Cise shortens the exercise cycle from 5-20 minutes per week to just 16 seconds, for a significant reduction of noise and fuel consumption.
  • This 26kW generator eclipses the competition with 41kVA of motor starting power to ensure smooth and consistent startup of large loads.
  • With NGMax, you get more power from natural gas than is produced by other generators of this class on the market.
  • The 60Hz model is offered in a 120/240v single-phase configuration. It runs quietly at 65 dBA. The dynamically balanced crankshaft minimizes engine noise and vibration.
  • The oil tank stores 78 oz. / 2.31 L of Schaeffer 5W30 full synthetic oil that shields the engine from low-temperature sludge buildup and high-temperature deposits. It makes start-up easy in temperatures as low as -20˚F.
  • Engine safety features include low oil pressure shutdown, high-temperature shutdown, and other fault code displays.
  • The automatic voltage regulator protects all sensitive electronics that may be damaged by voltage surges. Total harmonic distortion is < 5.
  • The GC-1032 controller has a backlit LCD that can be used to check the battery status, runtime and so forth. Users can check real-time generator status updates from smartphones, tablets, laptops, and PCs using the optional InfoHub Cellular.
  • The aluminum enclosure has a scratch-proof and rust-proof Dura-Zen™ coating. It can be installed as close as 18” from a building.
  • The Briggs & Stratton 40658 generator listings include UL, cUL, and Massachusetts Plumbers and Gasfitters Listing.
  • This generator is backed by a limited 6-year warranty (Parts / Labor / Travel). Warranty on Enclosure Surface Rust and Corrosion (Parts / Labor / Travel) is 1 year. Enclosure Rust Through (Parts / Labor / Travel) is 3 years.
