Yes, but ONLY if the generator is electrically modified and upgraded to accept the 4 prong plug.

The four blade receptacle that is on your generator has the ability to to generate 120/240 volts. This is what your house voltage is 120/240. To take advantage of the generators output you should be considering using a four wire installation to the transfer switch. By only using a three wire you will only be able to supply either 120 volts or 240 volts but not both. Depending on the amperage configuration of the generator receptacle the top blade hole should be the neutral, bottom blade hole the ground and across the left and right blade holes 240 volts or left to top 120 volts and right to top 120 volts.

If a prong breaks you'll need to bring it immediately to a jeweler to have it reattached. Usually you won't be able to tell that it's been broken.
