Product Overview

The Sportsman Propane 3,250/4,000-Watt Portable Generator can power common household appliances and power tools. RV ready, it is equipped with 1-120-Volt RV outlet, 2 -120-Volt outlets and a 12-Volt DC outlet for battery charging. A generator of this size is ideal for small camping or tailgating parties or to have on hand in case you need some temporary power in an emergency situation. It has a 7 HP 4-Stroke OHV Recoil Start engine. It's affordable but well thought out with full featured options such as Automatic Low Oil Shutdown and Automatic-Voltage Regulator. It boasts an engine run time of 10 hours at 50% on a common 20 lb. (gas grill type) cylinder (LPG cylinder not included). A 5 ft. propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 68 dB. This is a great generator for anyone who needs affordable power. Propane has several distinct advantages over gasoline generators. Propane burns cleaner than gas engines. Carbon monoxide emissions run up to 40% lower. Propane will not degrade, so you can keep several propane tanks on hand for emergencies and store them for an unlimited amount of time. Since this generator runs on propane you never have to worry about the fuel going bad or having the carburetor getting fouled due to degenerated gasoline - a common problem with gasoline powered small engines. CARB Approved.

Answer: 
As long as the connecting hose fits the tank, no problem. The hose includes an inline pressure regulator so a straight hose without a regulator would be unsafe.

Answer: 
Yes as long as it has the standard barbeque thread hookup on the valve. By the way this generator is great for an emergency setup. You don't have to worry about storing propane and having it go stale like you do with the gasoline models. Doesn't have electric start but this thing starts like gangbusters. Very easy.

Answer: 
If you hook up the generators to a larger propane tank you must connect to the larger propane tank before the existing regulator. You must use the supplied hose and regulator kit. You cannot hook up to the propane tank after the large tanks existing regulator because the generators cannot be double regulated. If you have more questions please contact customer service at 800-568-6657. Thank you.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a great little generator Bought this unit 4 years ago incase of emergency and left it in the box until this week, pulled it out this weekend with hurricane Mathew on the way. Put in oil, hooked up propane and got ready to fire it up fully expecting a 2-3 hour ordeal due to the 4 years it sat in my garage. Low and behold it burst to life on the 3 pull, ran my fridge/freezer and several lights, fan and radio no worries at all. this is the smartest buy in a small ez to use generator with enough moxie to handle emergency needs and keep you comfortable. 100 percent satisfied. A wee bit heavy, but truly the best buy on the market. October 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT VALUE!!! LP / Propane is the best for generators!!! LP is the best for generators. Hook it up to your RV or trailer propane tanks or better yet you can go to almost any major store and swap our your 20lb LP tank for a refill anytime. LP never spoils unlike gas, not messy like gas, and if there ever was a leak(I doubt it) you would smell it right away. This generator has it all. Plenty of power for any RV AC system, microwave, blow dryers, electric heaters, etc. Easy to handle, 30 amp plug, and balanced weight. And the price??? Can't beat it. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This one works fine I ordered the 2000 watt propane generator and it arrived with broken motor mounts. Home Depot took it back no problem. When the 4000 went on sale and included free shipping I decided to step up. Glad I did. It works fine. Started first time after about 5 or 6 pulls. You have to let the propane fill up the hose. Shut it off put kept tank connected. Started up after 2-3 pulls. More features than the 2000. Plus twice the output for not much more $. I only gave 4 stars for quality because I'm leary of the company after my experience with the 2000 but other than that the 4000 seems pretty sturdy. And heavy. Haven't had it out in the field yet but so far so goo May 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased with my new generator I gave this generator only a good rating because an excellent one is only proven over time. That said, I am exceedingly happy with this purchase. Buying in May and not expecting to need until next winter was turned upside/down in June when the power went out for several hours. The generator was already out of the box and loaded on a furniture dolly and ready to use, I had done all of my homework earlier. As many of the reviews noted, it started on the 3rd pull. Ran smooth and was perhaps a little louder than I anticipated. I plugged a 21 joule surge protector in and noticed no green light to indicate the generator was properly grounded. For the purpose of my test on lights and TV, I did not connect to a ground rod; I highly recommend that you do your own homework. The generator will tend to skate if not placed on a level plane. Overall, this was a great purchase for me. Ordered online, it was here in 3 days. July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far,So Good I've only taken this on one trip, but I started and ran it about 12 times. So far, it has performed without a problem. I put it on choke and pulled and it would start every time. I was gone one time and my wife said that it started for her just fine, too. Packing it up, without liquid gas was nice and clean, no sloshing or spilling and no smells when it was running. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by For dry RVing Easy to set up and start. Some leaking oil in the beginning. Called service number and issue was resolved June 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good for the application Even though there were a couple of negative reviews of this product I decided that I would try it as it had the feature of running on LPG that I wanted. I plan to use this for emergency power. I am totally satisfied with my purchase. It starts very easily and works as advertised. It came in tip top condition. The only reason I rated the features as good and not excellent is that it does not come with wheels. It only took me about 30 minutes make a roll around platform for it. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Propane generator is great The generator works great and people working at cypress CA Home Depot were fantastic!!!! May 3, 2016
