Briggs and Stratton's history dates back over 100 years, and it isn't hard to see why. Their unwavering dedication to providing their customers with the best tools available is evident in their 12,000 Watt Home Standby Generator. The 40326 turns on automatically when it senses that utility power has been cut off. When it does, 12,000 watts of power zoom from the generator to your home. Unlike many generators, the power it puts out is safe for electronics such as computers. Bigger isn't always better; the new enclosure design is 15% more compact, but it doesn't need the bulk to power your whole house. The Galvaneal Steel Outdoor Enclosure is rustproof, so it will work for you hassle-free for years to come. Briggs and Stratton's specialty is engines, and the 803 cc Professional Series Engine is designed to bring the "wow" factor and provide your home with power when you need it most.
