Can this Kohler 8kW Home Standby generator be started remotely?
Kris 
from Idaho 
December 22, 2016
Answer
This unit is a standby generator only and will only power up when utility power is lost. The generator cannot be manually/remotely started.
+
Is this 8kW 597 CC Kohler engine a "pressure lubrication or splash lube" engine? Is it of the same quality and durability as a Kohler 12kw or slightly larger generator of same style?
James B. 
from Texas 
December 13, 2016
Answer
The engine in the 8kW unit is pressure lubricated. The quality is the same from the 8kW unit to the larger 12kW unit.
+
Does this system include the "OnCue Remote Monitoring software"? Are there any ongoing subscription fees for the monitoring service? The product description states; Includes OnCue Remote Monitoring System •Built-in Ethernet card, no hardware needed for OnCue
Chris 
from Illinois 
June 28, 2016
Answer
The OnCue is built into the generator and no additional hardware is needed from Kohler. There is no subscription needed to use this monitoring system.
