Whole House Generators


More Powerful Performance

Kohler’s exclusive PowerBoost™ technology provides greater motor starting capability for large loads such as central air conditioners while still running other home appliances and electronics

Safer Power for Sensitive Electronics

Many power sources can damage and degrade sensitive home electronics due to unstable power quality or high levels of total harmonic distortion (THD). KOHLER residential generators protect all of your valuable appliances and sophisticated electronics with cleaner, safe and stable power that meets strict utility requirements and IEEE standards for THD.

Quieter Operation

Sound enclosure maintains neighborhood solitude whether you are in self-test or full operation mode. 68 dB(A) at 7 m, similar to a typical central air conditioner.

Faster Response

While many competitive products can leave you in the dark for 25 seconds or more during an outage, KOHLER generators restore power in as little as 10 seconds.

Easier Service and Installation

Unlike most competitive products our engines include hydraulic valve lifters for reliable performance without routine valve adjustment or lengthy break-in requirements.

Kohler’s new easy-connection terminal block provides faster, flexible installations

Polymer base eliminates the need for a concrete mounting pad, reducing installation time and cost and the new 17RES is designed with a hinged roof for easy service access.

More sophisticated diagnostic self-test

While some competitive products perform a short, reduced-speed exercise each week, KOHLER residential generators perform a 20-minute full-speed exercise cycle and self-diagnostic test each week to ensure your generator is ready to run when you need it

Sophisticated fault codes on Kohler’s exclusive Advanced Digital Control let you know where service may be needed.

Emissions certifications

Meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) nonstationary unit requirements and California Air Resources Board (CARB)-certified for both LP vapor and natural gas (field-convertible)

Superior five-year limited warranty included
