Just like any other engine-powered machine, standby generators require regular maintenance.
Just like your car needs an oil change every 3 months or 3,000 miles, most standby generators need one every 2 years or after 200 hours of use.
The generator keeps itself in shape throughout the year with weekly low-speed exercise cycles.
A maintenance kit comes with everything you need to make sure your generator passes its yearly physical.
An important rule of thumb, and one we can't stress enough, is to read your owner's manual. It contains model-specific information that will allow the best operation and performance from your generator.
