Power Is Freedom with Briggs and Stratton’s 7000 Watt Portable Generator
The next time thunder cracks and the wind howls, you have one less thing to worry about thanks to the Briggs and Stratton Elite Series 7000 watt portable generator. As the storm blows in, make sure your perishables don’t perish in a dark refrigerator and everyone stays calm and comfortable by keeping the lights on when the rest of the neighborhood is out.
An electric key start on this portable generator makes turning the power back on effortless so the inconvenience of having no power is shorter. A remote engine choke next to the key start means you don’t have to fumble around needlessly in the weather or darkness to get this generator fired up. It's all done in one place with the turn of a key.
A large, more powerful alternator delivers 25% more surge watts to start up big appliances like your fridge to keep your food cold or, more importantly, the heater to keep your family warm. With a seven gallon fuel tank that provides nine hours of running time at half load, you can keep them warm for the night without worrying the generator will starve of fuel.
When the weather is nice and sunny, and there are no worries on the home front, put this beastly 7000 watt portable generator to work. The increased power and run time, along with five 120V outlets, runs all your power tools to get the projects you can’t reach with an extension cord, and it eliminates the need for one of those wimpy power strips that turns everything off with the simple bump of a button. Quit messing around, and quit worrying about the weather, give yourself the security and freedom of power where ever and whenever you need it.

What a difference a couple years makes. My last B&S Generator, a Craftsman 5600 watt, was USA produced, but no more.
Get with it Sears! Get with it Briggs & Stratton! How in the world do you expect American consumers to buy your products when manufacturing jobs keep going offshore?
Other than that, so far so good. Starts easy and powers my needs. Some might say it is loud, could use a better exhaust system since money is being save on labor cost by using slave labor to build this unit.
Purchased 10/20/2014, and delivery to store was on time. Just this weekend 11/8/2014 took it out of the box and prepped it. Be prepared, the generator is heavy for a 7000 watt unit. First started manually and after the second pull it fired right up. I let it run about 5 minutes and shut it down to test electric start. Started right up without having to charge battery. Tested each of the 4 120 outlets with electric chain saw and then hooked up two lamps, portable heater, refrigerator and the electric saw with no negative results. When the refrigerator cycled the generator momentarily idled down without any fading in lights. I have not tested the 120/240 outlet yet and intend to do that after I have purchased some additional hardware. The reason I did not give it an "excellent" rating is due to it being very noisy. I had expected this though from the Consumer Reports test results stating it was noisey. I advise wearing ear protection when working nearby the unit. It would be nice if Briggs and Stratton made an after market muffler for this unit.
We bought the generator when some trees knocked down some electric poles and was without electric for few days !! I had a little light when I got home that night from the generator thanks to Sears having this one IN STOCK in the store and not waiting till winter to keep one on hand !!
Putting the generator together was easy just by following the instructions. Once put together, I was able to start the engine on the first pull. I let it run for approximately 15 minutes. I then shut it down and charged the battery. I then proceeded to start the engine using the battery pack. Again it started with ease. For the price this is a excellent generator that can power most of my house at any given time. Will try to put a load to it in the next few days to check to make sure that the generators produces the proper power and does not bog down under normal electric demand.
I bought this generator to power my house in case of power outage..which seems to happen very frequently in the last year or so. I will be plugging generator into a manual transfer switch. So far out of the box the generator was very easy to assemble and started with the first turn of the key. It is a little loud but not any louder than my lawn mower. It seems very well constructed. It is heavy but easy to move around on wheels.
Our town is in the 5th day of power outage from the blizzard (MA). We were without power for 3 full days with night temps in the single digits. I had purchased this generator last fall (my electrician told me what specs to look for) and had an outside connection and interlock device installed on my electrical panel. This powered my oil furnace, fridge, microwave, 3 TVs, hair dyers etc. and all the lights. I didn't use my oven or clothes dryer on advice of my electrician. I got over 8 hrs average usage per tank of gas. Easy to use; rolls easily on the wheels. The electric start didn't work after 2nd day but the pull start worked on 1st pull. I noticed that I had to recharge the electric start every couple of weeks when testing it over the last few months. No big deal, just plug in the supplied charger. Don't procrastinate, just buy it!
brought this from sears because it has the low oil shutoff and the hour meter on it Don't buy from homedepot there don't have the extras. had it for about 3 months and had to use it when power went out the the temp was in the low 20s Hook it up and ran great the electric was off 20 hours very glad I brought it Ran the whole house except hot water heater and dryer. We have hot water heat no problems there For the money I am very happy with the purchase. yes I would recommend this to a friend
