Product Details

Briggs & Stratton VanguardTM V-Twin Engine (570cc)

The most powerful engine in our U.S. generator line-up, this commercial-grade, easy starting and fuel-efficient V-Twin engine features Overhead Valve (OHV) technology to run cooler and last longer: it’s ideal for heavy-duty portable generators.

Full GFCI Protected Multi-Featured Control Panel

Multiple outlets let you power more tools while protecting against overloads and ground faults, plus an internal trickle charge and float charge jack keep the battery fresh.

Large, Rugged Steel Frame with Lifting Handles

Increases durability and security on the job site.

Surge Wattage

The Power Surge™ Alternator produces a short surge of power needed to start large motor-driven appliances and tools simultaneously.

Low Oil Shutdown

Minimizes the risk of engine damage due to inadequate lubrication.

Super Lo-Tone™ Muffler

Dampens noise and vibration - because the job site is probably loud enough already.

7 Hour Run Time (at 50% Load)

A metal 7 gallon fuel tank for more durability and less refueling.

Pressurized Lubrication and Spin-On Filter

Lubricates and protects vital engine parts to extend engine life.

Easy, All-Terrain Maneuverability and Stability

Featuring four premium, extra-large wheels with locking brakes.

Push Button Electric Start
