The Briggs 10 kilowatt home standby generator is one of the smallest footprint, whole house style, generators with its 200A service disconnect transfer switch which includes Briggs ACCM - Air Conditioning Control Manager.

Trouble With Installation
Hired an electrician to do the install. He's done a lot of generators but not a Briggs. It turns on great, motor smooth & quiet, but won't shut off when the electricity comes back. Can't figure out the problem. If we can then I would recommend it to a friend, but not until.
Pros: Quiet
Cons: Bad Instructions

Backup Generator
Haven't had it go into gen mode yet. Did install it install it my self it started right up. I ran it on back-up mode it ran just fine. It's a relief to know we have back-up power if we need it.

James,
Sorry to hear that you are having some issues trying to find a local installer that can quote you a lower price. I can send you a list of some more installers in your area that may be able to quote you better pricing but keep in mind that just because the price may be lower it is not always the best option to go with.
