Reliable power for large residential or small business needs. When the power goes out during a bad storm or power failure, your 38 kW KOHLER® generator with industrial-grade engine keeps your home or business – from central air to sump pump to personal computers – up and running.*
In just 10 seconds, your KOHLER generator automatically restores power and keeps you connected to the things you love to do.
You get steady, high-quality power that protects your electronics from damage related to low-quality power sources.
We’ve got you covered with 5-year, 2,000-hour protection, and a corrosion-proof enclosure that’s built to last.
Neighborhood-friendly, with weekly exercise volume that’s similar to a normal conversation.
This generator’s patent-pending innovations include a three-fan, automotive-style cooling system that keeps the sound level down.
