Q: What size breaker would I use in my panel (200 breaker) if hooking the generator up as a whole house backup generator (B&S 30469)
by Julius from New Jersey on December 12, 2012

A: Since we do not sell interlock kits or recommend back feeding you will need to discuss that with your electrician.

Generator manufacturers only recommend using a proper manual transfer switch.

The whole house manual transfer switch we recommend for a 200A service would be the Reliance Controls TWB2005DR which is installed directly after your electrical meter allowing you to manage your entire panel.

by John from South Carolina on March 17, 2011

The Last Power Outage
In September of 2011 I lost power for 7 days. I assured my family this would not happen again. I ordered a Briggs and Stratton 6000 watt generator from Electric Generators Direct. The generator arrived promptly and the trucker even took it off the truck and moved it into my garage. The assembly was quick.

Putting on the wheels, bracket, adding oil and gas took about 35 minutes. The generator started with one pull. I tested all of the AC outputs and they worked perfectly. I plan on... more

Everything I Could Hope For
My generator shipped same day it was ordered- excellent service from EGD!

I have this generator setup as part of a standby interlock system through the electrical panel. I lost power today (Hurricane Sandy) and this generator started right up in one pull and powered the necessary circuits just as expected.

For those interested in specifics, I power all sub-30 amp circuits when running this generator, except the washing machine, garbage disposal, and dishwasher. In total this includes: ... more

So Far, So Good
I purchased this generator to replace a 3.5 KW generator that was inadequate for my needs. I live in a very wooded area that is subject to frequent power outages. Though we have not had any since the B&S arrived, it appears to be a good fit for my needs.

I have run the generator several times under load, and it performs well. Under a light to moderate load, when a 1 ton A/C unit kicks on, the unit picks it up without a hiccup.

It has started with the first pull every time. The engine... more

Power went out last night. Pulled out the generator and it started on the first pull. Definitely has enough power to run most of the house except the ac? Good purchase!
