Briggs and Stratton

Briggs and Stratton Generators Minnesota, North Dakota, Wisconsin


At Midwest Electric & Generator, Inc., we carry Briggs & Stratton generators, well-known as one of the best brands in the world for its reliability and longevity. When it comes to Briggs & Stratton, their motto is “power more for less,” as they are very specific about what their different size generators can handle in regards to home or business power requirements.

What Briggs & Stratton stands by is that you don’t need a large generator, just a smart one. One step they’ve taken toward creating smarter generators is wireless monitoring, allowing homeowners to understand and monitor the behaviors of their generators.

Our professional generator technicians can install the perfect Briggs & Stratton unit and also connect you with the Briggs & Stratton monitoring tools that will help you keep track of your generator’s behaviors. We can also connect to your monitoring software to keep track of your generator so proper maintenance can be carried out with a lot less stress.

Finding The Right Size Generator For Your Home

As a Briggs & Stratton dealer, we know that a 10kW GE home generator will power up to 5,000 square feet, a 13kW GE generator will power up to 8,000 square feet, and a 17kW GE generator will power up to 11,500 square feet. For most homes throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wisconsin, the 10kW generator is sufficient; the larger generators work great for commercial establishments.

Since Briggs & Stratton began specifying the capabilities of their generators, the misconception that individuals need up to 20kW to power their entire homes has been derailed. The fact is, that you don’t need that much. A 3,000 square foot home that has a 3-ton air conditioner is only going to need 10kW. By having the right size Briggs & Stratton generator installed, you’re saving more money on the unit price, the installation, and even fuel costs.

Smart Briggs & Stratton Home Generators

Briggs & Stratton uses the patented Symphony II Power Management System. This system is designed to do all of the work in actively monitoring and distributing the power to the entire home. Because Briggs & Stratton Power Systems has created a smarter system that considers the power needs and appropriately distributes them, you can enjoy power that is uninterrupted.

You also have the ability to provide power to just the appliances you choose. In other words, you can choose to power just the essentials, such as the refrigerator, furnace, and other needed appliances.

5-Year Warranty

Lastly, Briggs & Stratton gives a 5-Year GE Generator Warranty that includes parts and labor. This is another aspect that contributes to the reliability of the product. Briggs & Stratton stands by their products, which is why they offer what is considered the best and longest warranty in the industry.
