WARNING:
Do not connect to a building’s electrical
system unless the generator and transfer
switch have been properly installed and
the electrical output has been verified by
a qualified electrician. The connection
must isolate the generator power from
utility power and must comply with all
applicable laws and electrical codes.
Using a generator indoors CAN KILL YOU IN MINUTES.
Generator exhaust contains carbon monoxide. This is a
poison you cannot see or smell.
NEVER use inside a home
or garage, EVEN IF doors
and windows are open.

NOTICE:
Do not use E15 or E85 fuel in this product. It is a violation of federal law and will
damage the unit and void your warranty.
Only use unleaded gasoline containing
up to 10% ethanol.
Connect devices to be powered by generator by following the steps below (see pages 8-9).
• Make sure the generator can supply enough continuous (running) and surge (starting) watts for the items you
will power at the same time. See page 9 for how to calculate total amount of power needed.
• Start the generator with nothing connected.
• Plug in and turn on the first load, preferably the largest load you have.
• Permit the generator output to stabilize (engine runs smoothly and attached device operates properly).
• Plug in and turn on the next load.
• Again, permit the generator to stabilize.
• Repeat previous two steps for each additional load.
IMPORTANT: Never add more loads than the generator capacity. Take special care to consider surge loads in
generator capacity. (See pages 8-9.)
