Briggs and Stratton generators are fully automatic and permanently connected to the home through an automatic transfer switch. Seconds after a power outage occurs, the standby generator starts and the transfer switch moves the house onto generator power. Because they operate on natural gas or propane, there’s no need to refuel every few hours.

PowerProtect Generators from 10kW to 26kW use the world-renowned Vanguard V-twin commercial grade engine. When the power goes out, the last thing you want is a generator that won’t start and run reliably for days or weeks. Count on Vanguard engines from Briggs and Stratton to keep your generator running and your power flowing.

NEW in 2022, the PowerProtect Generators include compatibility with Symphony II and Amplify Power Management Systems. Generators bundled with the 200-Amp Amplify automatic transfer switch include the Amplify Gateway with InfoHub. Amplify allows the homeowner to set priority on up to 32 appliance circuits through a smartphone app. As your power needs change throughout the day, choose which appliances take priority over others.

For example, give the electric range priority one while preparing dinner. Later, give the air conditioner priority one to cool the house.

Symphony II Power Management controls power hungry-appliance circuits. The homeowner chooses priorities at installation.

Amplify and Symphony II use Power Management Modules to control the power to large appliances. Low voltage modules for air conditioning and high voltage modules for other large appliances are sold separately.
