Briggs & Stratton® Showcases PowerSmart Series™ P3000 Inverter Generator At GIE+EXPO



New unit’s inverter technology provides smarter, quieter power for the great outdoors

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 24, 2013) — Briggs & Stratton® unveiled the next generation of smart, clean and affordable inverter generators at GIE+EXPO in Louisville, Ky., today: the PowerSmart Series™ P3000.


Outdoor recreational enthusiasts who require more power than a standard 2 kW inverter, and still want the benefit of quiet operation, will love the new Briggs & Stratton PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter. The P3000 delivers enough consistent, quiet power to run a 13,500 BTU RV air conditioning unit, which most 2 kW inverters can't achieve. It is the first inverter in its class that offers a USB charging outlet and StatStation LED wattage monitor/maintenance reminder.


The PowerSmart Series P3000 inverter generator features computer-controlled technology that continuously and automatically adjusts engine speed to reduce fuel consumption and run up to 80 percent quieter than traditional camping generators. The unit provides efficient and consistent power for both recreational and emergency backup needs that traditional generators can’t match. 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 PowerSmart Series P3000 is the first and only inverter unit from Briggs & Stratton to offer parallel capabilities,” said Deadra Richelle-Purifoy, assistant marketing manager for Briggs & Stratton’s (BGG) Power Products Group. “The P3000’s parallel capability can connect two units together for nearly double the power —enabling users to continue running their RV’s HVAC unit, while simultaneously keeping the lights on, charging cell phones, or using portable appliances. 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 2 kW 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.
