The Generac OHVI® engine is
exclusively designed for generator use.
Why is this important? Generators are often
required to run for hours, days, or sometimes even
weeks. Continuous use can cause stress and strain
on engines not specifically engineered to withstand
extended run times. Generac OHVI engines are
designed and purpose-built specifically for the
rigors of generating power, to help ensure their
long life and trouble-free performance. That’s the
reliability that customers expect for
the punishing demand and long
hours that job sites, events,
and emergency backup
can require. That’s the
Generac OHVI engine.
Tough. Purpose-Built.
Engineered and built in
the USA.
