About the Briggs & Stratton 30470
We reside in a locality where power outages due to natural exigencies or any other emergency are pretty common. Hence, we always had a generator as one of our gadgets. After going through a lot of positive reviews, we decided to test the Briggs & Stratton 30470 model (previous Briggs & Stratton models have always been a treat). We were convinced with the commendable features it had but were still eager to use it and experience them on our own. The shipping was done immediately as soon as the order was placed and assembly was a breeze for as it is shipped almost assembled. Key electric start with remote choke is one of the exciting new features on this generator that allows for effortless start from one central location even if you are using it for the first time. Fuel gauge, easy-to-grab handles, and 12-inch Never Go Flat wheels make it a comfy device with increased mobility.
We have kept the generator in our garage as it is a bit noisy but the support it provides overshadows this tiny issue. The robust engine is made from Briggs & Stratton itself so no chance of quality degradation. 7.5-gallon metal fuel tank provides a remarkable nine hours of continuous operation with 50 % load and we can easily use our electronic gadgets be it the refrigerator, outdoor lighting system or anything.
Multi-featured control panel including four 120-volt household outlets and one 120/240-volt 30-amp locking outlet with rubber outlet covers are more than enough for a typical family’s power requirements. The circuit-breaker protection with quick reset buttons are a few other added benefits. It possesses a 2100 Series OHV 420cc engine; overhead valve engines facilitate longer engine life, smoother operation and are economical on fuel. This is the ideal portable generator for emergencies and outdoor events.
