How necessary is this kit?

I didn't see it mentioned either as a required part or desired accessary in any write-ups I saw until I got to ordering the generator? The kit has a bad write-up and at best, I would look for something to substitute for it if it is a necessity in our area (Long Island, NY)
Asked by: Anonymous
For our automatic standby generators, if you expect the temperature to drop below freezing, we recommend utilizing a 5W-30 Synthetic oil, which can be used year round. We also recommend using a cold weather kit, which includes a battery warmer and a crankcase heater. Using the correct oil and cold weather kit will allow the generator to start and run in below freezing temperatures. The cold weather kit compatible with our current 8-20kW automatic standby generators is model 6212. If you are unsure as to whether this kit will fit your generator, either contact your local store or call Generac directly at 888-GENERAC (436-3722) with your generator model and serial number.

Greetings Ptak, My name is Tom, from Home Depot's How to Community. I had difficulty reading the document that was posted as well. I was able to see it better by saving it on my computer and then being able to increase the size. Generac was restricted in being able to send a larger as the largest image that can be posted here is 5MB. I spoke to Generac's Customer Service and if you send an email to she will send you the installation instructions directly via fax or email. Thank you for your question, and sorry for the delay.
