What is the exact Engine on this Model?

I'm looking to buy a natural gas conversion kit for this model, and need this information. Thansk!
Asked by: Tree1
The engine is an AP188F. We do not recommend converting this unit to natural gas though because it would void the warranty on the product.

5,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Manual Start Portable Generator is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent generator Purchased this generator a few weeks ago and just used it during a 3 day power outage. Performed flawlessly. No surging, no fluctuation in power as load changed when heavy draw appliances such as the coffeepot cycled on and off. Starts on the first pull, except when I first started it after purchase when it took two pulls. I like that the manufacturer includes a quart of oil in the box. What I like even more is that then engine oil sump is exactly one quart in capacity - puts the oil level right in the middle of the dipstick (another nice feature). So much better than engines that require something like 26.3 ounces of oil! The usage meter is nice - good to know how many hours you've run. The generator is quieter than my old unit that had less power. The frame is sturdy, and I like the the frame, wheels and handle are assembled at the factory. Just unpack it, add the oil and go. Great value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performer Bought this about 2 years ago when my 15 yr old Coleman finally gave up the ghost and only used a couple times prior to this week. Severe thunderstorms and high winds knocked out power all over the Chicago area. After a 1 pull start this generator has been running non stop for 4 days so far and performing like a champ. I have it connected with a 220v cord with 2 male ends and its running the entire house including the well pump and 2 sump pumps minus the central a/c. The only negative comment I have is after running for 2 days one of the bolts on the handle came loose and needed to be tightened back up, no big deal, took about 45 seconds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from did what it said it would we're in the sixth day of a power outage now... this generator is helping us survive the 100+ heat index by running a side-by-side refrigerator, a window air conditioner, this computer and an XBox. I'd say we're as happy as we could be in the circumstances.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Manufacturer won't back warranty Purchased and used this generator for 2 1/2 months. Ran great. Then one day I went to start it and it made a loud backfire thru the carb.. Wouldn't start. Took it to an authorized repair center. Valve was bent and stuck open. Service center called the manufacturer who said it was a maint. issue therefore no warranty. I changed oil reg, used ethanol free gas and started and stopped the generator according to procedure yet it was my fault it fail ? DO NOT BUY THE PRODUCT if you expect the company to honor their warranty

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Dependable I purchased my generator about 4 years ago. I have had it running for 3-6 days straight. It has always started and performed flawlesssly. I was very pleased, to runs so many appliances, 2 window ACs, 2 Freezers, Sat TV. Lights cieling fans, hot water heater and the well pump. It runs about 18 -20 hours on a tank of fuel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value! I’ve used this product for 76 hours with no complaints. Added oil, gas and it started on the first pull. I was not familiar with Powermate, and I was a little skeptical but when there’s a major power outage you buy what you can find. So far, I’m very happy with this product and when you compare it to other generators I feel it is a great value at $549.00. I was able to power my window AC, TV, lights and refrigerator at the same time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great generator ran for 56 hrs no problems yet what I can see this is a good buy
Date published: 2012-07-04
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Generator Took it out of the box, added oil and gas, and ran it for 73 hours while power was out. With the 7 gallon tank, it ran anywhere from 10 - 15 hours before needing refueled. We ran a fridge, lots of fans, 46 inch TV, 27 inch TV, DVD, Wii, an occasional vacuum, garage door opener, dehumidifier, etc. No problems what so ever. I would recommend it to anyone.
