Gain the peace of mind, and quiet that comes with owning the new 12kW generator by Briggs & Stratton. Now 60% quieter and 50% smaller than our old 12kW, you don’t have to compromise your homes curb appeal to get the protection of automatic backup power. With its sleek, compact profile, the 12kW Home Standby Generator adds new dimension to “Powering More for Less.” Perfect for smaller to medium-sized homes, the new 12kW Generator by Briggs & Stratton combined with our Symphony® II Power Management System allows you to meet the power needs of your whole house, (including up to two 4-ton air conditioners).

Why the Symphony® II Power Management System? Well, not all appliances are powered equally. Some, such as your central air conditioner, electric clothes dryer, electric stovetop, oven, or whirlpool tub, require a large amount of power to start up or operate properly.

The Symphony® II, featured on the 12 kw generator, orchestrates these high-demand appliances with lower-demand items to give you true whole-house power with a smaller, more affordable generator. The package also includes one of the best comprehensive parts and labor warranties in the business - 5 parts and 3 year labor year limited warranty your guarantee of quality and performance.
