Features for the Generac 7172 - Standby Generator

True Power™ Technology
It delivers best-in-class power quality with less than 5 percent total harmonic distortion for clean, smooth operation of sensitive electronics and appliances.

Generac's G-Force™ Engine
It’s a purpose-built, pressure-lubricated engine capable of handling the rigors of generator use, resulting in power that’s more reliable and requires less routine maintenance than any competitive engine.

Quiet-Test™ Self-Test Mode
Self-Test Mode runs at a lower RPM for a five- or twelve-minute test, making generators significantly quieter than other brands while consuming less fuel.

Tough, Durable All-Aluminum Enclosure
The RhinoCoat™ powder-coated finish helps make corrosion-resistant aluminum perfect for all weather conditions.
