What is the THD of this generator?

What is the THD of this generator?
Asked by: Joe
I don’t know what the total harmonic distortion is for this generator. I had one outage this past winter where I had to run my generator. I have a brand new hot water boiler for heating my house and it has a new electronic control panel. When the generator was first started the boiler electronics were not happy with the frequency and would not run. I think the alarm was ‘frequency imbalance’. I have two UPS’s that were not happy either. However, once I put more load on the generator (mainly lighting load) the boiler electronics were fine and it ran fine heating my home. The UPS’s were also fine once the generator had more load on it. I also ran my flat screen tv at the same time. Bottom line, if you’re concerned about sensitive electronics, once the generator has some load on it to keep it stable, the electronics are happy. I hope this helps.

Whats the noise level?

Asked by: Carlos
The noise level is about the same as most generators of this type. Noise was slightly less than my neighbors with a smaller B&S engine.

What does the Home Depot Proection Plan cover for this and other branded portable generators ( I.e., surge protection)?
Asked by: Patrick
Zeke, I have been thoroughly pleased with the Briggs & Stratton generator; the Bluetooth set up is the greatest, it allows you to check on the fuel level, running time left, maintenance, etc. without leaving the comforts of your home. I would refer you to Home Depot about the, the warranty and also the extended warranty that Home Depot offers.

Tested for over a month with no problems. Easy set up, easy start up. Powers my essentials, ac, fridge, fans, tv, computer. When the next power outage occurs, my family and I are ready.

Added gasoline to the tank and it started immediately. Seems to be of good quality I will know more after unit "breaks in" and ages with use. I find the Bluetooth app functional, provides useful maintenance and real time power usage. I rated it 4 stars because the engine does not go to idle speed when there is no power being used. Noise level is acceptable when used in large open area and fuel consumption seems to be average for this size generator.

I have not used this product, received it after the hurricane, it was easy to set up and pull. So easier to start I will need more time to use it. Overall it met my expectations very sturdy and easy to use, great upgrade from the previous one.

Able put together fine. Manual is good. "Good" rating because: quite noisy, more than a borrowed 5.5kW B&S, and the StatStation app wouldn't load to a tablet (it met specs). Recommended for value.
