Customer Questions & Answers

What is the rating of the main circuit breaker for the 38 rcl?

I may be overlooking this, so thanks in advance if I am.
Asked by: Seabee6768
The 38RCL is available with different voltage and phase configurations, which alter the line circuit breaker amperage. On a single-phase unit, the line circuit breaker is rated no less than 158 amps.

Can the 38 kw be used for continuous duty?

Asked by: joe
The 38RCL generator set is only approved for stationary standby applications in locations served by a reliable utility source. Use of the generator set in an off-grid, prime or continuous application will void all warranty coverage.
