New Briggs & Stratton® 25-kW Standby Generator Offers Homes Affordable Commercial-Grade Option

09:00 EST Tuesday, November 05, 2013

MILWAUKEE, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Briggs & Stratton Corporation's (NYSE:BGG) new 25-kilowatt1 (kW) liquid cooled standby generator is equipped with commercial-grade features and was designed with residential homes in mind.


"Our new 25-kW1 liquid cooled standby generator offers commercial-grade features and benefits, so homeowners with larger residences can have peace of mind that their power will stay running throughout a power outage," said Amanda Grandy, marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton Standby Power. "It's the tailor-made backup power solution for homeowners with more electrical needs than our smaller generators can meet, but who are still seeking a more economical option than our larger 35-kW1 unit."

The new 25-kW1 home standby generator is powered by an automotive-style, dependable engine that delivers quality power to sensitive appliances and electronics such as computers, in addition to powering a home's larger electrical needs, including electric stoves and air conditioning units.

The unit's user-friendly control panel has a scrolling LED display for easy-to-read information and troubleshooting. With added accessories such as InfoHub?, a wireless generator monitor that communicates with your computer, smartphone, tablet or our Basic Wireless Monitor, it is easy to know how your standby generator is performing whether you are home or away.

Custom power solutions are available to automatically manage power to household appliances and prevent generator overload. The Load Control Center, a patented power management technology exclusive to Briggs & Stratton, allows a unit to manage power to multiple high-wattage appliances while powering all of the essentials, such as lights or the refrigerator. This generator can even power homes with two air conditioners so homeowners can comfortably live through a power outage.

The unit's commercial-grade enclosure is made of automotive-grade, corrosion-resistant galvanneal steel. It features a hinged roof that has gas springs for easy opening, while strategically placed ventilation pushes exhaust up and away from the home and surrounding landscaping. Removable front and back panels make access easy and maintenance faster.

A four-year limited parts and labor warranty2 comes standard on each 25-kW1 home generator unit. For more information about this generator or to locate a Briggs & Stratton dealer, visit

1This generator is rated in accordance with UL (Underwriters Laboratories) 2200 (stationary engine generator assemblies) and CSA  (Canadian Standards Association) standard C22.2 No. 100-04 (motors and generators).
