Briggs & Stratton 30469 gas powered generator is a great example of Briggs & Stratton excellence. The Briggs & Stratton label has been providing its customers with well-built long-lasting engines for over a century. When it comes to portable emergency power supply, the Briggs & Stratton 30469 generator is one worth consideration of purchasing. You can’t predict the weather or power outage occurrence – whether it be a storm, tornado, hurricane, blizzard, or flood. However, you can always be prepared with the Briggs & Stratton 30469 portable generator. All Briggs & Stratton Elite Series products are made from heavy duty parts and back their parts with a solid warranty. The Briggs & Stratton 30469 generator is non-CARB compliant (it can’t be used inside the state of California).
The Briggs & Stratton 30469 seems large when compared to other portable generators. However, the machine compensates for the large size with 10 inch (never-flat) tires – making it fairly easy to transport. For this reason, the 30469 isn’t solely handy for emergency situations. It’s also a great asset to have at job sites and camping excursions (for your RV and/or RV appliances). The B&S 30469 operates at 6,000 continuous watts (7,500 peak wattage) and runs with a 1650 series overhead valve (OHV) engine, capable of running for 12 continuous hours (at 50% power load). The design and construction of the unit is extremely durable and features a relatively low noise engine (although it’s probably not as quiet as a few other brands despite having a noise suppression feature). In addition, the B&S 30469 is very fuel efficient considering the high amount of power it provides. You should be able to run this unit for 10-12 hours with around 5-6 gallons of gas. The fuel tank can hold 7 gallons of gas. The generator features a recoil start and a 342 cc engine. Additionally, the Briggs & Stratton 30469 features 4 power outlets: a 120/240 volt 30 amp locking outlet, a 120/140 volt 30 amp twist-lock, a 12-volt 10-amp utility outlet, and a 120 volt 30 amp twist-lock outlet. The unit measures 28.7 x 18 x 25.4 inches and weighs 195 pounds. It’s backed by a 2 year warranty.
