Generator Cold Weather Kits

A cold weather start kit automatically keeps the battery at optimal starting temperature during freezing conditions. Recommended with ambient temperatures below 32 degrees. Cold weather kits include a battery warmer with a thermostat built into the battery wrap.

The Extreme Cold Weather Kit, for liquid-cooled generators only, includes the appropriate block heater, step-by-step installation instructions and all necessary mounting hardware for an extra degree of extreme weather protection.

Overview

The Cold Weather Kit is intended for use with air-cooled product manufactured after April of 2010. The kit consists of an automatic thermostatically controlled battery padwarmer and crankcase heater. When temperatures fall below an acceptable level, the thermostat activates the battery warmer maintaining optimum battery temperature and also activates the crankcase oil heater for the best generator starting. This kit is recommended for generators installed in regions where the temperature regularly falls below 10 degrees. When installing a cold weather kit, it is required that the oil is replaced with 5W-30 synthetic for better engine start capability.

While the Extreme Cold Weather Kits include the appropriate block heater, step by step installation instructions and all necessary mounting hardware for an extra degree of extreme weather protection. This kit is to be used in conjunction with the appropriate Cold Weather Kit that contains the necessary battery warmer assembly. If not done already, the oil must be replaced with the appropriate synthetic oil.
