10,000 - 13,000-Watt Home Generator Systems Cold Weather Kit for GE is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST FOR COLD CLIMATES The unit comes pre-wired for the cold weather kit making the installation of the battery warmer and oil heater a matter of just plugging in the connector on the heaters. My unit came with the oil heater installed and connected. These two heaters will ensure quick starts and proper lubrication of the engine, The oil heater will extend the life of the engine when operating in cold climates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes I would recommend this if you live in a cold state. Making sure everything will not thicken up so it can and will run when and if needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from questionable value this item should be std equipment with the generator. The battery warmer was easy to install BUT the oil warmer was an issue. On the vertical engines the place for the installation was difficult to get to and you needed either strong fingers or speciailzed mechanic equipment to do it properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good product overall a little pricey . The oil in the engine must be drained to install the oil heater. problem is the engine comes with the oil filled from the factory. A real pain to have to drain new oil to install the heater.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from a bit pricey Very difficult to install the engine block heater-tried to install it thru the inspection plate as directed- but to no avail --- had to remove the whole side panel of the generator and had to purchase a crowfoot wrench. Even so very difficult -- but done. But absolutely necessary in our cold climate. Maine

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn't last long Had to waste two quarts of new synthetic Oil to install block heater, waste of MY money. I have a lot of tools and I am mechanically inclined but what a pain to install the oil heater in the block. I changed the oil and filter today and found the battery heater thermostat burnt up. I have no idea when it happened but now I'll be out another $175 for a battery heater and I guess I'll have spare block heater for when that fries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This heater connects to the generator easily This product is designed well to work with Briggs and Stratton generators. Both heaters connect to prewired connectors on the generator. The directions are easy to read and well written. When I bought the item I thought I was only buying a battery warmer but there was a block heater that screwed into the generator by removing the freeze plug. Great design.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from well thought out product Easy to install, need to drain the oil. installed when I needed to change the oil. Battery warmer is just a plug in and set battery on it. Nice product
