MILWAUKEE (June 9, 2014) — The new PowerSmart Series™ P3000 inverter generator from Briggs & Stratton was awarded the Tailgater Magazine 2014 Best Overall Tailgating Product at the National Hardware Show, held in Las Vegas in May.
“Sports fans who require more power than a standard 2kW inverter, but still want the benefit of quiet operation, will love the new Briggs & Stratton PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter,” said Eric Loferski, Director of Marketing, Briggs & Stratton Portable Power & Cleaning Systems divisions. “The P3000 delivers consistent, quiet power to run everything from the most basic tailgating essentials to extreme super-fan features including big screen and projector televisions, stereo systems, and culinary equipment.”
The PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter generator is the first in its class that offers the combination of a USB charging outlet and StatStation LCD wattage load monitor/maintenance reminder. It also features computer-controlled technology that continuously and automatically adjusts engine speed to reduce fuel consumption and run up to 80 percent quieter than traditional portable generators. The unit provides efficient and consistent power for both recreational and emergency backup needs and exceeds traditional generators’ sound capabilities. The unit’s luggage-style, lift-assist transportation system allows for easy maneuverability by one person with its telescoping handle and a twin-handle for two-person lifting.
The P3000 is the first and only inverter unit from Briggs & Stratton to offer parallel capabilities, enabling tailgaters to connect two units together for nearly double the power. With the P3000, sports enthusiasts can power their RV’s HVAC unit, while simultaneously keeping the lights on, charging cell phones, or using portable appliances.
“Each year, Tailgater Magazine scouts new products appearing at the National Hardware Show to compete in five categories to win one of our coveted Game Ball Awards,” said Randy Dye, Tailgater publisher. “We chose the Briggs & Stratton PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter generator to win the Best Overall Product because it scored the biggest ‘wow’ factor for our tailgating audience. The innovative P3000 has set a new standard, raising the bar for inverter technology.”
The P3000 is the newest addition to the PowerSmart Series, joining the P2000, a 2kW inverter, which launched in 2010. The Briggs & Stratton PowerSmart P3000 Inverter is the next generation of quiet, affordable power. To learn more, visit www.briggsandstratton.com .
