A MUST FOR COLD CLIMATES

The unit comes pre-wired for the cold weather kit making the installation of the battery warmer and oil heater a matter of just plugging in the connector on the heaters. My unit came with the oil heater installed and connected. These two heaters will ensure quick starts and proper lubrication of the engine, The oil heater will extend
the life of the engine when operating in cold climates.

Yes I would recommend this if you live in a cold state. Making sure everything will not thicken up so it can and will run when and if needed.

No, I do not recommend this product.
this item should be std equipment with the generator.
The battery warmer was easy to install BUT the oil warmer was an issue. On the vertical engines the place for the installation was difficult to get to and you needed either strong fingers or speciailzed mechanic equipment to do it properly.
Cons: Difficult to Install, these shold be std equipment

Item is a must have in cold climate areas, installation took me less than 10 minutes. The item is way over priced though.

The oil in the engine must be drained to install the oil heater. problem is the engine comes with the oil filled from the factory. A real pain to have to drain new oil to install the heater.

This product is designed well to work with Briggs and Stratton
generators. Both heaters connect to prewired connectors on the generator. The directions are easy to read and well written. When I bought the item I thought I was only buying a battery warmer but there was a block heater that screwed into the generator by removing the freeze plug. Great design.
Pros: Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Durable
