  • Includes service disconnect
  • Overload protection ensures the switch won't bite off more than it can chew
  • Compatible with 10-20kW Briggs and Stratton generators
  • Smaller generators (when combined with this switch) will provide access to the whole panel when the power goes out

To power your whole house, you might not need as big a generator as you think. You can pair a much smaller generator with the 071045 Transfer Switch from Briggs and Stratton and still have access to your whole panel when the power goes out. The switch will never melt down due to taking on more than it can handle, thanks to the over load protection. An exclusive to this design is the option to use your home's entire electrical panel by managing the large electrical demand of up to two air conditioners (depending on amperage draw). If you have a 10-20kW Briggs and Stratton generator, you would be a fool not to pair it with this amazing transfer switch.

  • 1x Briggs & Stratton 100-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch w/ Service Disconnect
