I have a 15,000 watt generac gasoline generator, is a natural gas conversion kit avaveibel ? is a permanent enclosier avalible ?
Gene Tedder 
from Florida 
December 18, 2013
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry.....Generator manufacturers do not offer conversion kits or permanent enclosures for portable generators.

We at Power Equipment Direct do not recommend converting your gasoline portable generator to an alternative fuel and doing so will void the manufacturer’s warranty and may cause damage to the generator itself. These conversions are not recommended by any of the generator manufacturers.

Gasoline has an Ignition Point of 475–536 °F. When a generator is manufactured to run solely on gasoline these temperatures are taken into consideration and the engine components are made to handle these temperatures.

Propane (LP) has an Ignition Point of 920-1020°F and Natural Gas (NG) has an Ignition Point of 900–1500°F. These higher temperatures will cause damage over time on any “gas only” powered engine.

The following guidelines cover Honda engines (Also applies to other engine manufacturers) modified to run on fuels other than the one for which they were designed, such as converting an engine to run on propane (LP) or natural gas (NG).


• Honda gasoline engines are certified to operate on unleaded fuel with a pump octane rating of 86 or higher, containing no more than 10% ethanol (E10).

• Any change to the original configuration of a certified Honda engine is a potential violation of the Clean Air Act prohibition against tampering (40 CFR §1068.101(b)(1)). The tampering prohibition is important because poorly designed and installed modifications can increase emissions.

• The Clean Air Act prohibits anyone from removing or rendering inoperative any device or design element installed on engines in compliance with regulations. These actions are considered tampering, which carries a civil penalty up to $37,500 for each engine or equipment in violation.

• Engines converted by a third party (OEM, dealer, converter, etc.) to run on a different fuel type must be recertified with the EPA on the new fuel to comply with applicable emission standards. The third party must recertify under a new family and notify Honda to not include the modified engines in the original family.

• Converted engines to be sold for use in California must meet CARB requirements and the converter must obtain approval from CARB. EPA certificates or tampering exemptions will not satisfy the requirement for CARB certification.

• Once certified, the third party must remove the Honda emission control label and apply a compliant emission control label for the new fuel indicating the new certifying manufacturer. Honda will no longer assume any responsibility as the certifying manufacturer.

• The Honda Distributor's Limited Warranty does not extend to parts affected or damaged by the conversion to or use of fuel other than the fuel for which the engine was originally designed.


• Honda offers V-twin engines specifically designed and certified for use in LP/NG applications. The engines incorporate special design features that address the higher combustion temperatures and reduced lubrication to the valve guide area (since it is a dry fuel, not liquid). Please contact your sales representative or distributor for additional information.

I was interested in buying the Generac GP17500E. I did my homework and believe it is the one for me. The questions I have are: 1. Can I convert it to propane? 2. How long will a 15lb propane tank last on this generator if I'm not powering the whole house and just the bare necessities? Thank you Ryan

The GENERAC GP17500 Watts electric generator has two 240V outlets on generator panel. One is 50AMP 240 V and other is 30AMP 240V. I bought this generator for its 17,500 rated Watts capacity. Therefore, I should be able to utilize the rated watts output to provide me power in the house. My electrician mentions that he will provide the manual transfer switch and receptacle to connect 50AMP 240 V generator out put to the connecting house receptacle via the 50Amp 240 V generator cord. I wanted to know from you if it is possible to use generators 30AMP 240 V receptacle to connect with 2nd receptacle for the house via the transfer switch to the electric water heater which is all independent circuit which is connected via the home circuit breaker with a 240V line. It is a 40gallon water heater tank. Its individual double circuit breaker shows two 15AMP switch. Your help in this will be appreciated. I dont mind the extra charges for connecting the 2nd receptacle of 30AMP 240V circuit that can be tapped from the same manual transfer switch. If yes, how it can be done subject to the approval of meeting the electrical code requirements. If not, what can be done to utilize this extra power to provide juice to my 40 gallon Hot Water tank during the power outage.
Prem Mehta

Answer
It is not recommended to connect to 2 separate panels via the generators outlets due to causing off balanced loads on the alternator and damaging the generator and possibly the equipment you are connecting to it.

CAUTION: EQUIPMENT DAMAGE – Balanced Load

Failure to properly limit and balance the load applied to the generator will cause the generator to produce low voltage and may damage the engine generator set. It may also cause severe damage to the loads connected to the generator at that time. Improper loading of the generator set constitutes abuse and will not be covered by warranty.

I'm interested in the Generac GP17500E. 1. When the generator is powering the house during a blackout, how do you know when the power is restored? 2. What is the yearly maintainance of it? 3. If it breaks down how and where can I get it serviced?
Steve Lo 
from Connecticut 
February 02, 2013
Answer
When using the generator properly connected to the included transfer switch the circuits in the switch are properly disconnected from the utility service. So, when your utility service returns the other circuits in your electrical panel are going to be powered while the generator circuits are safely disconnected from them. When your other lights and appliances come back on you will know.

The maintenance is listed in the owner's manual available on the site and comes with the unit. Typically it will be oil changes, oil filter changes, air filter changes and spark plug changes. You will have a maintenance schedule to follow based on the usage time of the unit.

All service is performed by your local manufacturers service dealer who handles all warranty and general service on the generators. You can find on via the following link....

How are you Jim purchased the 17500 generac what a monster. I have 60amp sub panel and a 100 amp main service. My question is can I run a 50amp outlet to my main panel and a 30 amp outlet to my sub panel. Thanks for your time and enjoy your holidays Kosta

Answer
It is not recommended to connect to 2 separate panels via the generators outlets due to causing off balanced loads on the alternator and damaging the generator and possibly the equipment you are connecting to it.

The best way to connect this generator is to connect a manual transfer switch directly after your electrical meter allowing the generator to be an exact replacement to your utility power when it goes out. You will however need to manage your circuits as this generator is not designed or large enough to power an entire home.

The following 100A switch is recommended since you have 100A service....

What generator do I need to run a 211 Miller MIG welder?
Brad  
from Florida 
September 02, 2012
Answer
The running amperage load on the MM 211 is 25A @ 230V and when you do the math (A x V = W) it comes to 5750 watts. The problem is it does not show the starting amperage load and typically MIG welders require a steady sine wave along with high starting.

I've heard a good professional 7500 watt generator could handle the load as long as you keep the amp output low because when you jump to 175A output or higher the unit will struggle and your welder will not keep a constant arch.

The larger generators have higher output capacity but you are limited to the 50A outlet so your going to max out at 12,500 watts on them and might still have problems.

If you keep the welds to 1/8th and under or short welds you would be ok but that never happens.

If I order the Generac GP17500 what transfer panel (box) do you recommend for maximum service?
Don Stewart

Answer
I recommend the TWB2005DR which is mounted between your meter and main panel allowing you to manage your entire electrical panels circuits.

You must have 200A service for this to work.

Jim, Are the outputs of the gp17500e in synch? I'm wondering if I could hook both the 50 and 30 amp into the same panel to get the full range of the generator.
Timothy Drag 
from New Jersey 
August 04, 2012
Answer
No, you cannot tie the 50A to the 30A outlet to get the full output, full output from the generator is not possible and any alterations to the unit will void the warranty.

50A is the maximum you can get at one time from this generator allowing a maximum of 12500 watts.

+
Hello, I was wondering if you buy a large generator like this and want to hook it up directly to the panel of a house to get maximum wattage capability, how do you do this? I currently have a 50 amp plug that goes into my box, and I see there is a 50 A outlet on this machine....But how to you maximize the full amperage output into the box? Thank you.
Andy 
from Washington 
July 14, 2012
Answer
With large generators you are limited by the largest outlet do the maximum you can get at one time is 12500 watts and the remaining wattage is available from the other outlets.

Portable generators are not designed to run your entire panel at the same time, it must be managed.

The proper way to connect to the entire panel is with a whole house style switch like model TWB2005DR.

This switch is rated at 200A and is mounted between the meter and your main panel allowing you to manage the entire panel without going beyond the maximum of 12500 watts.

I typically suggest having your breakers. Olof coated for day circuits and night circuits which helps keep you from overloading the generator.

If you want to do the entire panel you would want to think about whole house home standby generators like the Generac Guardian Series units.

Hello, I'm considering the Generac GP17500E to run most if at all of my house. All circuits wouldn't really need to be on all the time.

Hey Jim, I have the GP17500. How do you charge the battery? In the package there is a 12v start cable. Does this hook up to a trickle charger or is some way else to charge the batt when not in use? Thank you, Anthony Norcia
Anthony Norcia 
from Connecticut 
February 18, 2012
Answer
The generator charges the battery when in use and the generator should be started every 7 days per the owner's manual. This properly lubricates the engine, keeps fuel moving through the carburetor to prevent clogging and it charges the battery.

Otherwise, you need to follow the long term storage process according to the manual and then us a trickle charger on the battery to keep it charged.

Hi Mike. I bought a 17.5 kw Generac and want to use it to power the whole house. Is there a way to get more than 50 amps to a transfer switch.? What transfer switch would you choose?
Peter Matheson 
from Nevada 
February 19, 2011
Answer
The best way to connect to your home panel and have the ability to use all your circuits is to use a manual transfer panel based on the amperage size of your existing panel. (100A or 200A) This transfer panel would be mounted between your meter and your main panel breaker so you have control of all of your circuits. You still need to control them according to the load without exceeding the maximum of 12,500 watts through the 50A outlet. In a normal situation no one normally uses anywhere near 12,500 watts at any one time. The link below will show you some of the switches we have to give you more options.

How does this generator start in cold weather with the electric start? What is the difference between OHV engine & Generac's OHVI engine?
Daryl Hammond 
from Ohio 
January 17, 2011
Answer
Portable generators are normally stored inside and the B&S 30471 comes with a float style battery charger which is plugged into the generator when not in use. This allows the generator battery to have a sufficient charge when the generator is needed to start.

An OHV (Overhead Valve) engine is compact designed and generally makes the unit operate quieter. The Generac OHVI (Overhead Valve Industrial) engine is built robustly with premium power and high performance and comes with a fully pressurized oil lubrication system and spin-on filter.
