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

Happy With My Purchase
I read the reviews on this generator and that of Generac and selected the Kohler because two friends selected Kohler generators. My thought process was that they could help in the event I was experiencing problems with my generator. I selected a 20Kw after using the on-line usage calculator showing I needed a 20Kw. I had a Kohler representative come out to do the initial start up. He is also a representative for other generator bands. He said he only has to service Kohler generators while he... more

"Purchased my generator on line at Elect.Generators Direct based on the recommendation of two friends. Process was easy and shipping was great. Because I live in Washington where it snows, I also purchased the carborator heater. My only complaint with the ordering process is that the person taking my order did not recommend items others purchased with their order as is often seen on other web sites. For example, the description of my generator indicated it included the mounting pad. Turns out it was built in the body of the generator when what I wanted was the 3" concrete mounting pad. Had to place a second order for that. Upon seeing that I was ordering the carb heater, should have offered the battery heater which I purchased later on a third order."

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
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Features, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Oncue is pricy software

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.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Price, Exceeded Expectations

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

"This was my second experience with Electric Generators Direct, and I have to say it was great. They are there from asking questions, making the purchase, and delivery. I recommend them, with total confidence that they will treat my family and friends correctly. And this is my second Kohler generator, and the only reason I purchased thus unit is a moved to a new home. Why would you purchase that other brand, thus is a truly a American made gem."
