Hello Ron!

Congrats on owning what we feel is one of the best generator systems on the market! This 12kW generator partnered with Symphony II Power Management packs a big punch in a small package.

We hope you enjoy the luxuries of never losing power again - and being the envy of your neighbors!

Best Regards,

The Briggs & Stratton Standby Team
