The Kohlerr Advantage
D The Smart Choice Known for its reliability, the Kohlerr 12 kW generator was named a “Best Buy” as well as the highest-rated generator in a leading consumer magazine in October, 2006 D Powerful Exclusive PowerBoostt technology allows the Kohlerr 12 kW generator to start and run a typical 4 ton (48,000 BTU) central air conditioner, while still running other home appliances and electronics * D Cleaner Power for Sensitive Electronics Protects sophisticated electronics with clean, stable power that exceeds strict utility requirements and IEEE standards for total harmonic distortion (THD) D Faster Response Kohlerr generators restore power in as little as 10 seconds D Quiet Quiet operation: 65 dB(A) at 7 m maintains neighborhood solitude D Premium Five-Year Limited Warranty

Generator Ratings
Alternator Model 2F4 Voltage 120/240 Phase 1 Hz 60 Standby Amps Natural Gas LP Gas 43 50 Standby Ratings, kW/kVA Natural Gas LP Gas 10.4/10.4 12.0/12.0

RATINGS: Standby ratings apply to installations served by a reliable utility source. All single-phase units are rated at 1.0 power factor. The standby rating is applicable to variable loads with an average load factor of 80% for the duration of the power outage. No overload capacity is specified at this rating. Ratings are in accordance with ISO--3046/1, BS5514, AS2789, and DIN 6271. GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR DERATING: ALTITUDE: Derate 4% per 305 m (1000 ft.) elevation above 153 m (500 ft.). TEMPERATURE: Derate 1.5% per 5.5_C (10_F) temperature increase above 16_C (60_F). Availability is subject to change without notice. Kohler Co. reserves the right to change the design or specifications without notice and without any obligation or liability whatsoever. Contact your local Kohler Co. generator distributor for availability. * Due to the cycling operation of many electrical appliances, the generator set may not run all appliances simultaneously. Check the appliance manufacturer’s specifications for actual power requirements. Consult a Kohlerr Power Systems professional for your exact residential power system requirements.
