Our generators for backup power provide reliability and performance. When you lose power during an outage or storm, a hard-working 8 kW KOHLER® generator keeps your appliances working, the heat or AC running and your security system on.* OnCue® Plus Generator Management System is standard with every RESV or RESVL generator.
Kohler generators provide advanced voltage and frequency regulation along with ultra-low levels of harmonic distortion for excellent generator power quality to protect your valuable electronics.
The Kohler 8 kW generator can easily start and run a 4 ton air conditioner with up to 5 kW preload.*
Kohler is known for extraordinary reliability and performance and backs that up with a 5-year or 2000 hour limited warranty.
Bold new Kohler design in steel, dipped in e-coat for extra corrosion protection and painted with a durable powder coat finish.
PowerBoost™ technology provides power to start large loads such as central air conditioners without dropping power to other appliances Extraordinary peak motor-starting capacity: 8RESV at 16.8kVA at 240V Premium power quality delivers exceptional digital voltage and frequency regulation along with low levels of harmonic distortion to protect sophisticated electronics Powered by reliable KOHLER SV620 engine with efficient OHV design. operation speed is 3600 rpm (the standard for air-cooled generators) Compatible with Programmable Interface Module (PIM) and RXT, RDT and RSB Automatic Transfer Switches Also compatible with Load Control Module (LCM) or Load Shed kit with single-phase generators only
