Electric Generators Direct Recommended

Kohler is a well recognized brand and most people associate it with high quality bathroom fixtures. Kohler was actually one of the first manufacturers of standby power generators. They built their first generator in 1920. What's cool about that? That means they have been building and perfecting generators for over 90 years.

This 20kW standby generator is no exception. Let's start with the Kohler engine manufactured right in the heart of America ,Kohler, WI. This engine has hydraulic... more

Why Would You Buy Anything Eelse (kohler Is A Gem)
True American made gem, my first Kohler was purchased back in 2002 and never failed in giving my family a peace of mind and Sandy proved it. 15 days it ran giving us clean power. So when we moved to our new home, a month ago I purchased a 20k

Solid Performer
Im installing the unit now so its a bit early to review but I will update later after some run time. I selected this unit based on Consumer Reports testing, the reputation of Kohler generators from commercial installers, and my own personal experience with Kohler engines.

CR rated this particular model with its highest score and at the right price point its a no brainer. I was further attracted by the fact that self install and DIY maintenance didnt void my 5 year warranty from Kohler. more

Much Better Than The Other Manufacturers
When comparing the Kohler to its Generac counterpart, the first obvious difference is in the quality. When comparing the information between the two, there were several factors that made my decision simple. First, the overall weight between the two. The Kohler is significantly heavier which lead me to researching information on the generator head and engine materials. While both are copper wound heads, the weight of the engine block is the difference. Both blocks are of the same materials, but... more

Absolutely Great Purchase!
Kohler really is a step above the rest. High quality construction and a durable case makes the unit better than the competition. Engine fires right up just as expected from a Kohler motor. Very pleased and prepared. Special thanks to Electric Generators Direct for a great buying experience and top notch service.

Kohler 20 Rescl-200sels 20kw Generator
The generator was some what easy to install, but I am a retired electrical contractor. I would not recommend this install for your normal DIY person. The product is excellent and well made, The lapse time from normal power to emergency power is approx. 7 seconds. I am well satisfied with the product. The directions both operational and install could use a rewrite. The directions would be my only complaint.
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Price, Fast
Cons: Bad Instructions

Great Buy And Value For The Size
This was very simple to install and wire in with only two twisted pair as controls and a single 110 volt hookup for the charger. Need an electrician to assure main buss installed properly but worth the costs and trouble to get it in. Had another smaller Kohler that was out of sight and mind till really needed and was always there.

Good product and Electric Generators Direct shipped immediately.
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Quiet
Cons: Heavy

Excellent Standby Generator
The Koehler Generator is excellent. My only complaint so far is the Generator Set Controller. My unit has the DC2 Controller which appears to be a lesser model than the previously provided RDC2 that included LED displays for line and load power system status. The controller setup is difficult to impossible. Efforts to set the date and time have been unsuccessful to date. Setting the exercising routine is limited to running once weekly 7 days from the initial start. I wanted to set it up... more

This Kohler Generator Is Excellent
It arrived on schedule with no damage. The set up was easy for the electrician. The transfer switch did not have "Load Sharing" as I was led to believe by the advertising which was a disappointment. I am very pleased with this unit and I recommend it to others.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable, Price
Cons: None

Dwight,
This switch should have the "Load Management" built into the switch. Your electrician may have not been familiar with the installation if he's never installed a Kohler generator before. If you think you have gotten the wrong product, please give us a call @ 1 (800) 800-3317.
