For an economical price, it delivers impressive back-up protection and instantly powers up using electronic ignition a few seconds of sensing an outage. The 816cc Generac G-Force engine is pre-lubricated for less maintenance, runs on 120/240V single phase, and can provide 16,000 watts of power on LPG and NG.

Smart controls with a multi-lingual display at the control panel make tracking, monitoring, and status recording easy and quick. This generator also has impressive safety features such as remote monitoring, WiFi connectivity, and auto-shutdown at critical temperature and fuel levels.
