Does transfer switch come with generator for $1899.00

CAN I USE THIS AS A FULL TIME POWER SOURCE

CAN I USE THIS AS A FULL TIME POWER SOURCE
Asked by: William
I would not recommend that unit as a full time power source. Most smaller light duty generators are not designed for a full time operation. Best contact the manufacture for duty cycle times. We have run this unit for several days with no issues, during power outages but our load was about 1/3 of the total allowable capacity of this generator. We use it on a communication tower. One item I am not excited about is the requirement of total cabinet disassembly to just change the oil, (Inconvenience and time consuming mostly)

If I have 100amp panel do I need 100 amp transfer switch

Asked by: Tony
No, you can place the transfer switch between the main panel and a subpanel. Feed the transfer switch circuit with a rated 220 volt breaker the size rated for the generator as the feed and then use the transfer switch to power the subpanel. Switch will then drop in to just feed the subpanel with rated power, and when power restores the switch will drop out and resume power of the breaker feed from the main panel. Or use the optional panel that has the combo switch and breakers all in one, also available from the generator manufacture. You should only use the 100 amp switch to the 100 amp panel when you have a generator big enough to supply all available circuits within that panel without overload. The above suggestion solves that problem using a smaller generator.

Can it run on portable liquid propane or does it need to have a big tank installed Also have a transfer switch for previous generator can that be used if same watt generator
Asked by: dlw
Unit will easily run on even a single propane cylinder. (That's with the unit set to run on propane of course) The above unit can run up to 20 hours on a single 20# propane tank (the type on a small travel trailer or standard barbeque grill.) You can also use it with a double cylinder with auto switch, but if you are using the generator a lot, be prepared to do a lot of tank filling or switching. The larger the tank the longer run time you have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8Kw Generator 50amp 10 Circuit Switch I purchased this in July 2014 had problems showing "Under Voltage" after about 50 minutes in to it. Had Service Tech come out and determined with Briggs & Stratton Tech bad Control Board. Replaced conducted test ALL seem working well at this time. Keep you ALL post if any future issues. Thanks to ALL that were there for this support including Andy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Engine has been reliable the actual engine is for the briggs 7k stand by generator, which i believe is no longer manufactured. after some performance glitches were worked out - not willing to start in freezing temperatures - the engine and generator have performed well.
