Experience fast-acting, automatic protection from power loss with the CARB-compliant Generac Guardian Series 5885 17,000 / 16,000 watt air-cooled propane/natural gas powered automatic standby generator with steel enclosure. Ideal for home use, this generator powers up automatically and within seconds of a power outage without the need for any manual startup. Without any buttons to push or cords to plug in, an automatic standby generator starts up by itself even when you’re away. Standby generators power up automatically within seconds of a power outage to keep your family safe and comfortable (see larger image). It features a Generac OHVI engine, an exclusive air-cooled generator engine with a high-performance design that can accommodate large electrical loads. The engine optimizes power to respond swiftly to changing conditions. Generac’s Nexus controller offers a dual line, tri-lingual LCD display that allows for easy monitoring and management of generator functions. And external “at-a-glance” indicator lights provide an easy way to tell generator status without opening the generator enclosure. This Guardian generator does not include a transfer switch, enabling you to customize your installation. It does include a composite mounting pad, eliminating the need to pour a concrete base. The Generac Guardian 5885 meets CARB requirements, and it requires a Group 26R 12-volt minimum 525 CCA battery (sold separately). Nexus controller (see larger image).   Generac’s OHVI engine provides a significantly longer lifespan (see larger image). Hands-Free Automatic Operation When the power goes out, this generator eliminates the trouble of dealing with a fuse box in a dark basement or going outside in a storm to start a portable generator. After all LP or natural gas and electrical connections are completed, this Generac Guardian standby generator is ready to run 24/7 and requires absolutely no manual operation, no fueling, and no extension cords. The generator responds within seconds of power outages, so inconveniences like heat or air conditioning loss and burst pipes or spoiled food are quickly avoided. Initial setup is easy. The generator arrives with a flexible fuel line pigtail and a composite mounting pad. (Transfer switch sold separately. Additional items and tools may be needed to complete the installation to meet local codes. Consult a licensed professional for further details.) The unit can be programmed to perform a weekly exercise at the time of your choice, so it will be ready for continuous and reliable operation on a moment’s notice. For convenience, it also offers clear, digital controls, an at-a-glance status indicator, and an external GFCI outlet to accommodate your outdoor power needs. Powerful, Long-Lasting OHVI Engine The Generac OHVI (Overhead Valve Industrial) engine is the only engine designed specifically for generator use. Generators are often required to run for hours at a time, or even day after day. Engines adapted from other applications can overheat and may have shorter lifespans. It offers advanced heat reduction technology such as plateau-honed cylinders that lessen break-in time, plasma moly ring seals that help to keep excess oil out of the cylinder, and graphite piston inserts that provide a smoother surface for the piston to move against–all helping to contribute to a significantly longer engine life. Maintenance costs are reduced with a spin-on automotive-style oil filter that’s larger than a standard filter, catching more particles so oil stays cleaner for a longer amount of time. Service intervals are up to twice as long as competitive engines, approximately 2 years or 200 hours of operation. Superior Technology for Secure Output, Quiet Operation, and Durability Thanks to Generac’s exclusive True Power Technology, this generator provides clean, continuous power, so sensitive electronics and microchip appliances like laptops and HVAC equipment can be operated without the worry that unexpected power surges bring. Also featuring Generac’s patented Quiet-Test technology, this generator is truly neighborhood-friendly–its self-test mode is as hushed as an idling car to ensure that your daily routine is unaffected. The generator’s corrosion-resistant, galvanized steel enclosure is protected by Generac’s proprietary RhinoCoat system–a unique process that binds the paint to the metal surface for a long-lasting, durable finish. This allows the generator to sit outdoors and withstand harsh weather conditions without developing an unsightly appearance. Like all Generac generators, this model is UL (Underwriters Laboratories) listed for safety.
