Briggs & Stratton targets small sites with Elite generators
Small worksites, agriculture and domestic users are the target markets for Briggs & Stratton’s Elite Series range of portable generators.
Powered by Briggs & Stratton OHV engines, the Elite Series generators are available in 3500/3000, 6250/5300 and 9500/7000 watt options and can be used to power a wide range of equipment such as air compressors, angle grinders, sanders, circular saws, drills, concrete mixers, planers, concrete vibrators, air conditioners, submersible pumps and orbital sanders.
"The Elite Series of generators are perfectly suited for farmers, light trade and domestic applications," Briggs & Stratton business development manager Grant Buck says. "Basically, they are indispensable for any situation where a high performance, portable power source is required."
Buck says the generators are easy to start, fuel efficient and capable of operating in all terrains and weather environments.
Features include frame insulating anti-vibration engine mounts, solid-tyre wheels, ‘Super Lo-Tone Mufflers’ and fold-away handles.
The 3500/3000-watt is aimed more at do-it-yourself projects around the house. It features a Briggs & Stratton 1150 Series OHV engine, pull start and up to eight-hours of run time at 50 percent load.
The next step up is the 6250/5300-watt model which has a 2100 Series engine, pull start and up to 13-hours run time at 50 percent load). Briggs & Stratton says this model also includes a ‘StatStation Digital Display’, which shows information such as power usage, total unit lifetime hours and maintenance reminders.
Finally, the 9500/7000-watt model also has a 2100 Series engine and StatStation, but adds both key and pull start options and can run for up to nine-hours at 50 percent load.
