Decibel rating for Kohler 20kW generator is 64 dbA in test mode, 69 dbA in run mode. In caparison a lawnmower is about 90 dbA. It is much quieter than a lawnmower, but it does still make the steady noise of a running engine.

If the homeowner can install , will the warranty still be good ?

Asked by Luis March 29, 2020
4
Answers

Kohler requires one of their authorized service centers to do the startup. If an authorized service center does not do the startup and you decide to do it yourself, the warranty will start from the date that the unit was made - not the date that the unit is initially turned on and put into use.

how long will it run on a 150 gal propane tank.

Asked by richard September 2, 2020
2
Answers

Depending on what you are powering in your home a 20kw generator may use around 2-3 gallons/hour. A 150 gallon propane tank will last about 3 days.

can this unit be bolted down to a concrete slab from inside the shell of the unit and then locked?

Asked by kylewestcott76 October 15, 2017
1
Answer

The genset comes with a key to lock the door/hatch. The only provisions that exist on my unit for bolting down are outside of the unit. I guess it's possible to drill through the bottom of the inside to install an anchor, but it's probably not recommended. If you're concerned about theft, the unit is pretty heavy. It would take several strong individuals to lift the unit up, and they would need the proper sized bar, otherwise there's no where to lift. I guess if someone really wanted to steal it they could, but they could do that even if you bolt it down from inside the unit. You know a lock only keeps an honest person out.

Asked by Nicolas November 13, 2016
1
Answer

Electrical output on NG = 240vac, 18KW, 75Amps. LP is rated for 20KW, 83A,if you're curious. Fuel consumption varies greatly depending on load. See attached for fuel usage for various loads. An average house would most likely use less than 50% constant load. But again that varies greatly depending on how many hvac units you have, type water heater, if you use the stove or oven during an outage, etc. Very subjective.

The installer also sells a competitor's brand, but put this one on his own home. Definitely do buy the one with the transfer switch, as buying it separately costs twice as much. Tough to move into place, as I had to buy a couple of 3/4" iron pipes and some heavy rope to build a bridle, then lift it into place with a Bobcat with forks (weighs 565#), but parked it on the pad I had poured, and it's going nowhere now. Be sure to get one big enough for whole house supply, as this one is for mine, but even then, you can't run everything including the A/C at once. Used with a bit of sense, it's plenty big. If you live in country with hard freezes, get the heater kits to be sure it starts in frigid weather. It's worth the extra cost for insurance. Once set up, it's trouble-free, self-testing, and about the only maintenance is a yearly oil change. Get it professionally wired, as it's no job for an amateur.

The Kohler generators are superbly crafted and well thought out. From the oil/air filter location to the pad holes for easy lifting and moving. The On Cue system for convenient monitoring from your mobil phone and/or from your computer is also a great add-on feature for these units. I can conveniently monitor the performance of my generator from the comfort of my home or from anywhere in the world.

The Generator arrived via truck and dropped in our driveway. No damage, looks good. We are still "jumping through the hoops" of our county's building permit process ... so, two weeks later, it is not yet installed. Hurricane season starts in June. In this Florida County, the generator was delivered in mid-May and won't be fully permitted, inspected and running until mid-July. Un-Elected BUREAUCRATS!

Do not buy!! The gas regulator went bad on mine with roughly 3 hours on the machine, and it failed to start just prior to a major hurricane. I had to install a universal regulator myself for it to work for the days we were without power because no one stocks parts. The generator ran well for 30 hours with universal regulator, then when tech installed oem replacement regulator it wouldn't crank. It's currently not working until tech can figure out the problem. Not to be expected from a $5k piece of equipment. Very disappointed and will probably sell this unit and cut my losses so I don't have deal with Kohler ever again. P.S., Kohler is no help, either. Please don't make the same mistake as I did.

I purchased my Kohler generator a few years ago. Overall cost with electrician, gas hookup, Kohler service tech (for warranty purposes) and cost of generator was around $7500. I have performed the annual oil/filter and spark plug changes (which is the only maintenance that is to be performed until 300 hours per the owner’s manual.) The first oil change is scheduled for 100 hours or annually. Its first failure occurred at only 82 hours and cost $200 dollars to repair. At 150 hours it will no longer run...again. Despite endless phone calls describing the situation and disappointment in their product, Kohler customer service and management has refused to help. I tried to get the Kohler tech that did the initial start and checks on it for warranty purposes to come and repair it. Six weeks later I still couldn’t get him here. He stood me up twice. I contacted Kohler for another recommended tech who charged me $550 dollars and it still doesn’t run! We were left without power (or running water) for 4 days during this. No help from Kohler! I am now told it will cost anywhere from $1500-2800 to repair and Kohler will not help with the cost of parts or labor! Are you kidding me!? This would be like buying a new car and before its first scheduled oil change the car won’t start! I would expect more from a company and would imagine that they would want to stand by their product. Kohler is not a reputable company based on my experience with them. I am stuck and will likely have to replace my generator with another brand as the cost to repair this piece of junk will be more than the price of a new generator. Please take my advice. Avoid purchasing a Kohler product.
