Durability and reliability are the cornerstones of Generac’s robust engines.  Generac is proud to have built a powerful and reliable engine that is the envy of other generator manufacturers.

Generac’s Over Head Valve Industrial Engine (OHVI) is the only engine specifically designed for generator use.

OHVI engines are far superior to competitor engines. OHVI engines…

  • Last three to four times longer than competing engines
  • Features Plasma Moly Ring Seals and Graphite Piston Inserts

The OHVI utilizes the same type of pressurized oil lubrication that is used to give automobile engines years of trouble free service.

OHVI engines feature Plasma Moly Ring Seals that keep excess oil out of the cylinder as well as Graphite Piston Inserts that provide a smoother surface for the pistons to move against.  Maintenance costs are reduced because of the OHVI’s fully pressurized lubrication system that guarantees the oil will stay cleaner longer while providing a longer engine life.

The OHVI also features an X-Torq Governor, which is the fastest governor on the market.  The X-Torq maximizes engine performance and eliminates stalling.  The OHVI also features a dual element air filter, which protects the engine from dirt and other debris.

The OHVI covers all bases when it comes to generator engines.  They are built well, built to last, and far superior to competing manufacturers.
