Product Description

Cummins 17kW Home Standby Generator RS17A supplies your entire home during an outage. Requires a Cummins Onan Automatic Transfer Switch (sold separately.)

The Cummins RS17A connects permanently to your house through an automatic transfer switch and the natural gas or propane supply lines. It monitors the power company distribution lines 24/7, then automatically starts and runs when it detects an outage and continues to run until the utility restores power.

Cummins Power Generation supports the Cummins 17kW Home Standby Generator RS17A with the world’s largest and best trained worldwide network of certified distributors and dealers. They answer questions about maintenance and operation and offer a complete selection of maintenance parts, accessories, and products along with manuals and specification sheets.

The Cummins RS17A Quiet Connect Air-Cooled Generator includes a five-year/2000-hour limited warranty that covers travel and labor for two years and parts for a full five years.

Make the Cummins RS17A installation easier with a Generator Pad. Required by some local building codes, they keep the generator from sinking into the dirt. Using a premade generator pad eliminates the need for a poured concrete base or a pea gravel bed.

Requires a Group 51R 450 CCA Battery purchased locally.
