Milbank powergen — Generators / 8KW & 10KW

Features

8 & 10kW Series

Power the essentials and more with the 8 & 10kW home standby generators. Utilizing our Power Management Technology, the automatic transfer switch allows for flexible management of electricity and appliances - all while using a smaller, more fuel-efficient generator.

  • More Power in a Smaller Generator — The compact 8 and 10kW1 standby generator is one of the most powerful units of its kW class with higher power output per square inch of its footprint — providing backup electricity to more of your household appliances.
  • Homeowner Safety & Protection — We take protection to a whole new level — the 8kW and 10kW come with an external, automatic gas shut-off valve, low pressure regulator and a thermally-protected fuel system which automatically shuts down the unit during an emergency (not found on any other competing generator in its class).
  • Comprehensive Warranty — Both the 8kW and 10kW units include a three-year, comprehensive parts and labor warranty2. At Milbank, we stand behind our products (for more than 85 years!), making it easy for our customers to work with us.
  • Flexible Placement3 — Tested against the tough National Fire Protection Agency 37 standard, Milbank 8 & 10kW standby generators can be placed as close as 18” from the home providing more placement options in your yard*– perfect for tight lot lines.
  • Durable Enclosure & Base — Our enclosures are made from the same rust-resistant, durable Galvanneal steel that is found in the automotive industry and features an automotive-grade paint process which results in protection against chipping and abrasions. Our enclosures and base can endure temperatures of more than double that of aluminum and plastic.
  • Innovative Airflow Technology — With the engine and alternator intakes located in the rear, front ventilation pushes the heat and carbon monoxide away from the house - protecting homes, shrubs and landscaping from damage.
  • Easy Wireless Monitoring — Simple, trouble-free monitoring is a reality with our optional Basic Wireless Monitor (sold separately).

1This generator is rated in accordance with UL (Underwriters Laboratories) 2200 (stationary engine generator assemblies) and CSA (Canadian Standards Association) standard C22.2 No. 100-04 (motors and generators). 2Warranty details are available at milbankworks.com. 3Installations must strictly comply with all applicable codes, industry standards, laws, regulations and provided installation manual. Running engines give off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poisonous gas so it is important to keep exhaust gas away from any windows, doors, ventilation intakes or crawl spaces. The installation manual contains specific instructions related to generator placement in addition to NFPA 37, including the requirement that carbon monoxide detectors be installed and maintained in your home. Milbank reserves the right to make changes in specifications and features shown without notice or discontinue the product described at any time without notice or obligation. Other Generator/Automatic Transfer switch manufacturers’ products are not compatible with Milbank Home Generator Systems.
