The Briggs & Stratton 40685 emergency standby generator continues to supply power to your air conditioner, furnace, kitchen appliances, computer, lights and fans within seconds of a power failure. During a storm or other outage, your family can continue with the day as usual. The automatic transfer switch allows you to power all the circuits of the house. After a storm, it takes several hours-- and sometimes many days-- for grid power to be restored. This 10kW dual fuel generator can run for extended hours on LPG or the natural gas from your kitchen natural gas line. The ATS allows homeowners to choose to back up selected circuits rather than the whole house. The transfer switch comes ready with an integrated load center for picking up the emergency circuits.  

The Briggs & Stratton 40685 is 50% smaller than other models in its class and is easy to operate, maintain and store. The front-facing exhaust port allows for more installation options. The clean electricity produced by the generator keeps all electronics safe from voltage spikes. Maintenance and service are easy with the removable roof and front panel of the enclosure. If the weather is bad outside, use the optional Infohub to check the status of your unit from a mobile device. In storm-prone areas, the generator should be anchored on concrete. Excellent safety features, compact size, and affordable price makes this model the compelling choice in its class. The Briggs & Stratton 40685 is delivered free of cost. It is designed, engineered, and assembled in the U.S.A., with domestic and foreign parts. All Briggs & Stratton products are backed by a nationwide dealer network and call center experts.
