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: zeke
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.

I checked to make sure it was full of oil ( and it was) and connected the negative post on the battery, filled with non-ethonal gas and she cranked right up. I then cutt it off and tried to pull start it, and it cranked on first pull. Connected it to my transfer switch and it powered my house for for the 30 minute test run with no problems. Only complaint is that on the second story of my house the Bluetooth reception was poor, but if you walk to a window it picks it up. It also comes with a trickle charger to keep your battery topped off. Overall I think it will be a great generator

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit with technclogical advances This 8,000-Watt Gasoline Powered Key Start Blue Tooth Connected Portable Generator with 420 cc OHV Engine by Briggs and Stratton is a very nice generator. The set up was so easy. The instructions were very easy to understand and follow. The only item I need that was not shipped with the unit was fuel. The unit started right up and purred like a kitten. After ensuring the voltage was correct I downloaded the free Bluetooth app. I was able to monitor the power usage, fuel level and hours till empty along with oil life, spark plug life, air filter life and hour meter from my phone. The app will also let you know where the nearest service center is if you need it. Great unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always have power Living in an area that has very changeable weather, I felt I needed a reliable source of power in case we needed it. The Briggs and Stratton 8,000-Watt Generator is the perfect solution.The electric start was another reason I chose this mighty warrior!Its capable of running a freezer, refrig and fans in the summer moths, but also space heaters,and the coffee pot in the winter months, The app with the blue tooth is a plus also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for safety This is not the largest generator out there, but it provides enough power for the essentials. 8000 Watts is a decent amount. It start easily and does not take up too much room in the garage. Instructions are well written and easy to follow. The only thing you have to remember is to keep the gasoline for it stored safely! Otherwise, it just sits until needed.

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.

Some scuffing on the frame. Nothing major. Filled with gas and started right up. Did the break in for 5 hours and no issues. Ran a 6% load during break in. The app is rather nice to monitor the system. Changing the oil and ready to take it to the coast. Everything we wanted at a fair price

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.
