Really, there's just not much our highest output, gas-powered 120/240-volt output generator can't handle.

Top Features
  • With up to 50 amps 240V and 120/240 dual voltage output, the EF12000DE can handle most anything during a power outage
  • The EF12000DE is our highest output gasoline-powered 120/240- volt output generator
  • It uses a twin-cylinder 653cc, 4-stroke, OHV engine to deliver 12,000 watts maximum AC output with outstanding fuel efficiency
  • It has the convenience of electric starting (battery not included) and its compact size makes it highly portable
  • It provides 8 hours of continuous operation at rated load without refueling to power up super heavy-load equipment like well pumps, air compressors, table saws and more. Great as a backup generator
  • Dual voltage — Provides the versatility of 120 and 240 volt operation
  • OHV engine (overhead valve) — Precise valve actuation and heavy-duty design offer improved efficiency, increased reliability and quite operation
  • Cast iron cylinder lining — Provides optimal heat dissipation, consistent performance during continuous use and long engine life
  • Oil Watch Warning System — Automatically shuts off before oil level is low and cannot be re-started until oil is added. Prevents engine damage and costly repairs while enhancing long-term durability
  • Auto Voltage Regulation — Guarantees correct power delivery even with extension cords, enhances performance, adds convenience
  • Transistor Controlled Ignition (T.C.I.) — Provides clean, efficient spark that ensures fast, easy starting. Low maintenance, reliable operation
  • Noise suppressor — Reduces electrical interference with TVs and radios
  • Auto decompression — Automatically “opens” exhaust valve slightly to reduce initial back pressure when starting making manual starting effortless
  • USFS-approved spark arrestor — Offers quiet operation and keeps sparks from exiting exhaust system, reducing chance of fires caused by an errant spark
  • GFCI — Ground Fault Circuit Interruption shuts off power when it senses a leak to ground to reduce risk of electric shock
  • Fuel gauge — Lets operator monitor how much fuel is left
  • Electric starter — For convenient ease of operation (Battery NOT included)
  • Economy idle - When there is no load on the generator, it automatically returns to idle for improved fuel efficiency and quieter operation
  • AC non-fuse thermal breaker — Protects AC circuit in case of an overload for added durability and peace of mind
