The new P4500 Powersmart Series Inverter Generator from
Briggs & Stratton for RVs.
MILWAUKEE — In a response to RV
enthusiast complaints about noisy onboard generators, Milwaukee-
based Briggs & Stratton has created a generator that is efficient
The company announced on Tuesday the creation of the new Briggs &
Stratton P4500 PowerSmart Series inverter generator. The new unit is
equipped with CO Guard Carbon Monoxide Shutdown technology, an
industry-leading technology designed to shut down the generator if
harmful levels of CO accumulate in the generator’s operating area.
“Avid RV travelers told us they’re not happy with current on-board
generators because they’re very loud and use a lot of fuel,” said
Michael Fritz, senior global product manager for Briggs & Stratton
portable power, in a statement. “That same group told us that they
are impressed by the quietness of the P4500, which runs 60% quieter
than a standard generator. It also provides up to 16 hours of
runtime and produces the power of a typical 30A campground utility
Engineered to be compact, lightweight, and quiet, the new P4500
inverter generator has a protective hard shell to safeguard the unit
from dirt and debris, never-go-flat wheels, and a telescoping handle
to make it easier to move around. A push-button electric start turns
on the Briggs & Stratton 224cc engine to deliver 4500 starting watts
and 3700 running watts.
The new P4500 is now available at select retailers.
