Default Kohler 22RY, almost new

My employeer has a Kohler 22RY configured for LP, with only 22 hours on it. They will take offers from employees, but I don't know what it is worth. There is a transfer switch with it, probably 3-phase.

The unit is:
Model: 22RY
Spec: PA-110573
S/N: 0639396
12-Lead Alternator

Can I wire it for 2-phase and use it as a standby generator for my home?
I found only the spec sheet on the Kohler WWW site.
Where can I get the wiring diagram and service manual?

If it's a twelve lead machine as described, yes, you can reconnect it for 120/240 VAC single phase operation. You can probably rewire the transfer switch for single phase operation as well, depending on what voltage it is currently set up for.

That would make a nice home standby set.

Manuals can be had from any Kohler Power Systems distributor. I would recommend Kraft Power in Woburn, MA or TAW Power Systems in Tampa, FL.
