Electric Generators Direct Recommended

The Kohler 14RESAL-200SELS is an ideal generator for most single-family homes with 200-amp service and at least one central air conditioner.

The service disconnect automatic transfer switch features load shedding, allowing you to manage two central AC’s and run them both when the generator has enough available power. This is due to the PowerBoost™ Technology which offers greater motor-starting ability for large electrical loads. This will make your next hot summer power outage much more... more

Looks Good But Quality Issues Lid To Generator Came Off
Systems overall seems to be very good. But as we started working on the generator the rivets that hold the lid in place were faulty so the lid to the unit does not work properly

Also I had the unit installed by licensed contractors then I noticed in the paperwork to get the warranty we had to have it inspected by a Kohler distributor. And they want 350.00 just to verify the installation So I have a new system with a cover opening that is faulty and no warranty
Pros: Quiet, Price
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, 350 dollar charge to activate warranty and faulty lid closure device

Andrew,
This unit should still be covered under warranty as long as an electrician is used for the installation. The warranty starts on the date of purchase vs having a Kohler certified installer perform the installation, which would start the warranty on the date of installation. The lid should be covered under warranty. I would contact Kohler directly at (800) 544-2444.

Well Built Product
I replaced an older Generac generator with the 14KW Kohler. It makes about the same amount of noise as the 7KW Generac.
I would advise that you have a certified electrician install it and have a Kohler dealer do the start up. I cannot relate anything about the long term quality and reliability as it was just installed a few weeks ago. I did notice the motor runs kind of rough for the first 10 minutes after start up and then smooths out. I emailed Kohler and they said the air flow may need... more

My Review
Bought the Kohler on a recommendation from a friend. This person does research and keeps service up like no one else.

It performed perfectly except for the exercise cycle. Would not start. After numerous trips out by the local shop they could not solve the issue. He called the corporate office and wanted to know when they were going to call this a lemon and what they were going to do about it. 24 hours later, corporate called back. They were going to remove the old Gen Set, replace it with... more

Up Date On Kohler 14kw
Wrote an earlier review when I first purchased the 14KW unit. It has "exercised" itself as programmed without a hitch. It is about 10 months since installation and I lost power 2 times since then. Unit started up within a brief moment and ran well. The Generac it replaced had two missteps at 10 months old. I think the Kohler is a better product than the former Generac even though Generac may have improved their product due to advances in quality control. The Generac I replaced was 6-7 years old.
