How often do I have to change the oil in my Home Standby Generator?
Synthetic oil is required when an oil change is needed. An oil change is recommended every 50 hours and the oil filter every 100 hours. Note: the 570cc and the 627cc V-Twin Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engines on the 10kW & 12kW Home Standby Systems are shipped with a pre-filled crankcase and a pre-run engine, effectively eliminating the need for you to 'break in' the system. There is an hour meter located inside the front access door that will help you gauge when maintenance is needed. The 10kW system is also equipped with remote status alerting you to any maintenance needs.
