Easily powers heavy loads like variable speed air conditioners or appliances with sensitive digital controls.
Generac engineered and built the 26kW Generator ’s 999cc G-Force engine in the USA specifically to meet the rigorous demands of a standby generator. “Spiny-loc” cast-iron cylinder walls offer better rigidity and durability for a long engine life. Pressurized lubrication and low oil pressure shutdown make these engines more reliable with less routine maintenance other air-cooled generator engines. Up to two years and 200 hours between oil changes. Dependable, stable power that keeps your home and family safe through extended outages in high temperatures and extreme conditions.
Evolution Controls. Smart and user-friendly illuminated buttons and a two-line, multilingual display provide homeowners with history logs, maintenance alerts, battery monitoring, and reports up to 50 stored events. The Generac 26kW Evolution Controller integrates a utility interrupt delay to prevent nuisance starts, the engine warmup period, and cool-down cycle. The user programmable exercise cycle runs the generator during weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly operation.
Quiet-Test mode exercises the 26kW generator engine at a lower RPM and just 58 dBA noise. The reduced engine speed uses less fuel and reduces wear and tear on the engine and alternator.
