DANGER! You must isolate the generator from the electric utility by opening the electrical systems main circuit breaker or main switch if this unit is used for backup power. Failure to isolate the generator from the power utility may result in injury or death to electric utility workers and damage to the generator due to a backfeed of electrical energy. The Emission Control System for this generator is warranted for standards set by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Generac Portable Products SVP5000 Generator EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION This generator is an engine-driven, revolving field, alternating current (AC) generator. It was designed to supply electrical power for operating compatible electrical lighting, appliances, tools and motor loads. This manual contains information for a generator that operates 120 and/or 240 Volt, single phase, 60 Hz devices that require up to 5,000 watts (5.0 kW) of power that pull up to 41.7 Amps at 120 Volts or 20.8 Amps at 240 Volts. SAFETY RULES This generator set was designed and manufactured for specific applications. Do Not attempt to modify the unit or use it for any application it was not designed for. If you have any questions about your generators application, ask your dealer or consult the factory. The manufacturer could not possibly anticipate every circumstance that might involve a hazard. For that reason warnings in the Manual and warnings on tags or decals affixed to the unit are not all-inclusive. If you intend to handle, operate or service the unit by a procedure or method not specifically recommended by the manufacturer, first make sure that such a procedure or method will not render this equipment unsafe or pose a threat to you and others. Read this manual carefully and become familiar with your generator set. Know its applications, its limitations and any hazards involved. CAUTION! Do Not exceed the generators wattage/amperage capacity. Add up the rated watts of all devices you are connecting to generator receptacles at one time. This total should not be greater than 5,000 watts. In most cases rated watts of the electrical device can be found on the device nameplate. If the device nameplate gives only volts and amps, multiply volts times amps to obtain watts (volts X amps = watts). The SVP5000 generator has the following features: 120/240 Volt AC, 20 Amp locking receptacle. 120 Volt AC, 30 Amp locking receptacle. 120 Volt, 20 Amp duplex receptacle. Low Oil Shutdown: Automatically shuts down the engine if oil drops below safe operation level. Five gallon overhead fuel tank. The generators revolving field is driven at about 3600 rpm by a Briggs & Stratton 10HP engine. The engine exhaust from this product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. The generator produces a very powerful voltage that can cause extremely dangerous electrical shock. Avoid contact with bare wires, terminals, etc. Never permit an unqualified person to operate or service the generator. Never handle any kind of electrical cord or device while standing in water, while barefoot or while hands or feet are wet. Dangerous electrical shock may result. The National Electric Code requires the frame and external electrically conductive parts of the generator be properly connected to an approved earth ground. Local electrical codes may also require proper grounding of the generator. Consult with a local electrician for grounding requirements in your area. Use a ground fault circuit interrupter in any damp or highly conductive area (such as metal decking or steel work). WARNING: DANGER! Do Not tamper with engine governed speed. High operating speeds are dangerous and increase risk of personal injury or damage to equipment.
