Your Pick of Outlets

A convenient control panel includes three outlets (one DC and two household) and a USB adapter, offering enough flexibility to power an extensive combination of lights, music, TVs, crockpots, blenders, personal electronics and more.

Expandability That's Built In

A dedicated parallel outlet lets you connect to another PowerSmart Series P2200, P2400 or P3000 generator to create an even stronger power source.

Safe for Sensitive Electronics

PowerSmart inverter generator technology automatically adjusts the engine speed to protect sensitive electronics like smart phones, tablets, and laptops.

Works very well have tried several high wattage appliances. Has handled them all with ease. Compares well on the noise level with the top line brands. Very good product from the price point.

Excellent Generator Review by
Great little generator, it complements my solar system in my caravan really well ensuring that when I am able to be out and about I am well supported with consistent power. I operate sensitive equipment when using my van so the inverter is an excellent component of the B&S unit.

A great unit and definitely pleased I chose to go Review by
Couldn't be happier with the choice we made. After a lot of research and checking options there was no reason to be concerned but even more impressed once the unit arrived. Runs caravan air conditioner no worries and the noise level is more than acceptable. When a decent load is applied the unit just responds as necessary with no detriment to appliances that may already be running. The extra items and particularly the cover are excellent. The cover is much stronger and thinker than the photos suggest, an ideal addition to the package.

Great product excellent service! Review by
We were very happy with the service we received and the timely delivery. It was delivered to my cousin as we were on the road and it arrived as expected. We are finding it a great generator to top up our battery, run appliances when needed and give us peace of mind in case the battery in the van goes flat on overcast days!

quality machine Review by
Seemed full of power, even ran a 1.5 hp air con while testing things. i like how the inverter keeps the voltage and hertz spot on even at fast idle while running globes and fans, no dimming or slowing of the fan.

very good shopping experience Review by
I bought the Briggs and Stratton as a backup for power, and as well as an option when we go bush camping. I was sold on the extra's that came with the special deal, cover, and LETS GET STARTED pack, this will be very useful. Never having owned a generator before, I was a pleased that it was straightforward and easy to start, the instructions were accurate and clear.

Great team at My Generator Review by
The Briggs & Stratton is a good compromise solution for an inverter generator when you aren't looking at forking out up to $2K for a Yamaha or Honda, while still having a unit that will be serviceable for some time into the future. Got this as a backup for if we have power problems (after a nearby suburb had no power for 3 days, I realised I didn't want to be in the same boat). Looking to power mainly the fridge and the home NBN router in emergencies. Wish it had the quietness of the Yamaha, the dB noise specs are a little misleading (in the B&S specification) compared to the Yamaha specs, but for a $700 saving with similar output power, and only the occasional use, I was willing to compromise on this. The current promotion with the bonus extras is quite good too. The cover was a surprise, the photo doesn't do it justice, it is quite a thick protective cover, not to mention the "Lets get started" pack with oil, fuel can, preserver etc, thanks.

I purchased this unit to run my motorhome air con unit. It does the job better than expected. It is also suitable as a part backup for my home during power losses.

Briggs and Stratton 2200 Inverter Generator Review by
Initially purchased to provide power for a Waeco CFX95 on camping trips. Secondary reason for purchasing this item was to power a window installed air conditioner which I require for health reasons in the summer period if and when we have a power blackout. The generator has no problems in powering this unit

Well made, neatly put together, easy to manage and start and the bonus accessory kit is a worthwhile asset.

Very good product, very efficient Sales team Review by
Purchases the B &S 2200 generator to replace Yamaha 2500 . B&S lighter and easier to stow. Using it on a 12mt boat restoration out on a swing mooring . Low noise means neighbors not annoyed when I am using sanders and drills . So far has handled all my hand tools and small vacuum cleaner . Very happy with purchase. Only 1 small complaint - it only puts 5 amp’s out at 12vt for battery charge old generator put out 8amps.

Great generator for Caravans Review by
I purchased this generator to run appliances in my caravan. Especially my Dometic AC unit. The generator works a treat.

Excellent Generator, Easy to use & Quiet Review by
We took this away with us for our 10 day trip. It was the best purchase ever. It ran the lights, fridge, microwave (when needed) plus the twin tub caravan washing machine. My husband & i would highly recommend it.

Easy to use & quiet Review by
An excellent generator that I can carry around the work site. Quiet enough that I can use it camping but I don't like to use generators much when around other campers. Quiet power technology makes it fuel efficient and even quieter when the power demand is low. I highly recommend this generator to anyone who needs moderate power supply.

Product Q&A

Ask Us a Question
  • My product manual for my inverter generator mentions an 'earthing wire / earthing stake' - do I need this?

    Hi there, good question. This is mentioned in generator manuals and is a safety feature that will earth the generator. You do have the option to fit an 'earth wire'. Connecting an earth wire and stake is an option available to customer's that purchase a generator.

    An earth wire and stake are not supplied with generators that we sell and is application specific. In practice, we do not see customer's do this, especially for inverter generators. It can be something that is implemented for more specialized generators on mining work sites for example...for common applications, it is not common practice to 'earth' the generator with a wire and stake. If you are in doubt, and you have a specialized generator requirement that may need 'earthing', please consult an electrician. Hope that helps.

  • Do Brigss and Stratton have a national network of service centres in the event of a problem with the generator when you are on the road touring.? Thanks..

    Hi Simon,

    Thank you for getting in touch.

    Briggs & Stratton have quite a large National Service Network. They have repair agents in most locations around the country.

  • G'day, does this have a cast iron cylinder sleeve?

    Hi There,

    We are not sure sorry.

    It would be best to contact Briggs & Stratton Australia for clarification.

  • Is the P2400 suitable for HERON 2.2 caravan air conditioner? Cheers

    Hi There,

    We believe it should be suitable, but would recommend contacting Dometic Australia for clarification on generator sizing.

    They can be contacted on 1800 21 21 21.

  • Hi, Does this run on 91 or 95 Premium? Many thanks

    Hi There,

    We would recommend using standard unleaded, and avoid using E10.

    Premium unleaded is not required but could be used.

  • Hi there, what was the difference between the old P2200 Briggs and Stratton model and the new P2400 model?

    Hi, various upgrades were made for the New P2400 Model. We have created a list of updates below:

    • The maximum output wattage has increased from 2200W to 2400W.
    • The continuous output has increased from 1700W to 1800W.
    • The size of the new generator is larger than the old model, but the weight has decreased by 2kg.

    All other features remained the same including; voltage, fuel tank capacity and frequency.

  • Hi, How much power will I get out of the Briggs and Stratton Parallel kit?

    Thanks very much for the question.  

    The Briggs and Stratton Parallel kit can be used in the follwoing combinations:

    - Models: P2200 & P2200 Max Output: 3000 Watts

    - Models: P3000 & P3000 Max: 4800 Watts

    - Models: P2400 & P2400 Max: 3200 Watts


    You can also pair two of either a P3000, P2200 or P2400 model.

    However in terms of power output, the parallel kit doesn't have the ability to sense what unit is hooked up and how much load is being drawn from each unit. So we cannot evenly balance the load between the two generators when they are connected in parallel. Therefore, Briggs & Stratton choose to reduce the advertised power on parallel kit to reflect a value that we can guarantee and stand behind. 

    Thank you.
