Engineered to Perform

Heart and Soul of Powerhorse Reliability

From the industrial-strength cast iron cylinder sleeves to the dual ball bearing high-performance forged crankshafts, Powerhorse generator OHV engines are built to last with components normally only found in more expensive generators. Powerhorse OHV engines deliver more power, are more fuel-efficient and reduce emissions. That’s good for you and the environment. Plus, all Powerhorse OHV engines include features to add convenience and value. Low oil shutdown prevents serious damage or failure. Electric start provides easy, no-hassle starting every time. Internal oil splash enhancement provides extra lubrication and protection.

Runs Continuously without Overheating

Copper Would Heads With high-end premium 100% copper-wound generator heads, Powerhorse generators are able to run at full load continuously for weeks without overheating providing the ultimate reliability and performance. Most other brands use inferior aluminum heads. Most other brands use inferior aluminum heads.

Clean Power That Fits Our World

Today's electronics demand clean power with a smooth, stable, consistent output. And all Powerhorse generators provide it. Without a clean power supply, you run the risk of interrupting or even damaging sensitive electronics, such as your computer, TV or refrigerator. Even a slight disruption in the electrical signal can be costly. With less than 5% harmonic distortion at full load, your Powerhorse generator ensures sensitive electronics are protected and function properly. Most other generators on the market have potentially harmful 20-30% harmonic distortion at full load. Be sure to compare FULL load distortion levels.
