condition: good
make / manufacturer: Troy Bilt/Briggs
model name / number: 030431
Our area is heavily wooded so outages happened frequently from trees dropping onto power lines; we considered a generator as essential equipment for outages. However, since we've lived here (3+ years), the power lines have been buried in our area and we haven't had a need to use it. I have maintained this generator well, taking it out and running it quarterly, under load. I keep it full of gas that has Stabil treatment in it. I've changed the spark plug and filter, and burned carbon off the spark arrestor - the key to easy starting for this pup.

While branded as Troy Bilt, this unit was built under license by Briggs and Stratton. Parts are readily available, but I did not uncover an electric start option.

The gas gauge is cosmetically damaged, but works. The handle can be easily reversed for more compact storage.

Starting watts are 8250. The 14.50 number on the Briggs engine represents the torque; HP is 10.
