Yet again our Kohler generator saved us over a 4 day power outage. Whole house happily lit up when all others around us sat in the dark. I cannot recommend these units enough.
Interestingly the gas suppliers here in Auckland were more than interested when we mentioned to them we powered the whole house with a Kohler LPG generator. We gave your name and number to them.
I have owned an LPG Kohler 12 RES standby generator for 6 years, which I had installed due to frequent power outages in my rural area. The generator is more than capable of running all appliances, water and septic pumps, and lights in a large house, even during the evening. The generator has performed brilliantly, even when required to operate for multiple days, and I love the peace of mind that even away from home my freezers keep on working. The LPG model has proved to be very economical, running off my two 45kg cylinders.
