10,000-Watt Automatic Air Cooled Standby Generator with 100 Amp Transfer Switch is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from unreliable + zero support after warranty I've owned the unit for (7) years meticulous maintenance. beginning of Jan 2017. major failures of key components. I have MANY service related repair by certified BS repair. Sump/Case Gasket failure due to moisture build-up in crankcase, control module failure(moisture). Starter failure, etc. I have lost all confidence in the B+S Products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit! Very happy with this unit. Works well, waiting on a power outage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I chose this 10kW generator for 2 very important features; 1-It's small footprint, and 2-The 10kW power allowed me to bring over 16 circuits from my 200amp circuit breaker box, which included all rooms in a 3,200 sq. ft. house with lights, computer, TV's, refrigerator, micro-wave, toaster oven, garbage disposal, sump pump, blower motor for the furnace and the garage door opener. The only items not capable of coverage were the central air conditioning, washer, dryer, dish washer, oven and stove-top burners. The unit was installed just outside the house next to the central air conditioning unit and close to the natural gas line into the house. It was installed in August and immediately started running 20 minutes each week every Tuesday afternoon which charges the battery. Its sounds like a lawn mower when it runs. This sound was very comforting this past February when big snow storm caused a continuous 100 hour power outage. It kicked in automatically within seconds and ran flawlessly with no power surges to any of the appliances, computers or TVs. It was like a power outage never happened and I have told anyone who is looking for a whole house generator to seriously check out the various Briggs and Stratton models that are available. One picture shows the outside installation with both the gas and power line connection. The second picture shows the 16 circuit Transfer Switch installed next to the 200amp circuit breaker. You can save yourself money by ordering the unit from a department store, selecting an electrician and a plumber.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Run from this unit as fast as possible This unit is total unreliable. It only started one time when it was needed. When Sandy hit my main circuit board blew.I was with out power for 24 hours, until a service tech replaced it. I lost another board with in a year. A total of 3 including the original. The latest break down was a voltage regulator.  This part was of a poor quality and caused it to short out when exposed to water drops from snow. I would replace this unit but I have too much money invested in it. Run away

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I installed 10kw whole house generator just before the early snow storm of 2009' , power was out for 5 days but I had every thing up and running (ran for 5 days with not so much as a hiccup) could not be happier with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets Expectations I had this unit installed in August and a week later a bird landed on a transformer breaker and caused a power outage. The generator kicked in and performed as expected. Weekly exercise occurs exactly on time with the unit relatively quiet. I especially like the footprint of the unit and the fact that the 16 circuits provide most of my household electricity needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install for Hvac guy. Just installed one of these 10 kw 200 amp last week end. It can be done if you can read a schematic. Turned off power to home unit powers up right away. Powers restored no one will notice no loss of power after power is restored. Easy to set dip swithes to tell generator what It is 10, 15,kw. Also for warm up time 20 seconds for temps over 40, 50 sec for under 40 degrees f. Wish I had one at my place. Awesome generator and trasfer switch amazing product.
