The Sportsman Propane 1,350/2,000-Watt Portable Generator can power common household appliances and power tools. It is equipped with a single 120 volt outlet and a 12 volt DC outlet for battery charging. This recoil start generator can run for 12 hours with a 50% load on 20 lbs of propane fuel. 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 2.4 HP 4-Stroke OHV Recoil Start engine. Its affordable but well thought out with full featured options such as Automatic Low Oil Shutdown and Circuit Protection. It boasts an Engine Run Time of 12 Hours at 50% on a common 20Lb (gas grill type) cylinder (LPG cylinder not included). A 5 foot propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 65 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.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Light use with a small camper. Purchased this in Dec 2014 to use with my small camper that has a 5000 BTU A/C and small microwave. The A/C would be marginal since it will pull about 1800 Watts by itself -if pulling all it can. Unfortunately, the 2000 Watt is only a peak number- the 1350 Watt is the continuous number. It will not run the A/C. The Microwave runs great. So, all in all, it performs like is says. I have mounted it on the tongue of my trailer- so I'll get a feel for it's durability. Two things- it's a very good price for a generator and perfect for a trailer since it runs on LP. December 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product for My Needs This generator has been the most valuable tool in our arsenal for barn demolition and salvage. We could not operate without it. ---picture to follow April 26, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointment Would not start. In the process of trying, the pull cord frayed to the point that I would have expected after years of use. In theory it is great- a small propane generator- but the quality of this one is inferior. May 18, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not bad for the price. I have ran the Generator for a hour, so I can only give a small amount of info on it. Overall looks to be built well. I had no problems starting it. Took 5 or 6 pulls for the first start. After it was warm it only took 2 pulls to start. It is a little loud, but not bad. Ran a skill saw and cut a 2 x 4, worked fine for that. Put a 1300 watt heater to it, did not work for that. It turned on but the fan was turning slow. This unit is a 2000 surge watt with 1350 run watts. It should work fine on a refrigerator, and a few lights. The best part is it runs on propane. You can store propane for a long time, it travels well, unlike gas. Little heavy for my wife to move, but she can lift it and move it. They want to run 10w 30. It said not to put synthetic oil in it. Not sure why. I might give it a try after I break it in. So far so good. For the price, it is not bad. October 23, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Still starts and runs well I wrote the first review of this generator on this site. I've run it several night during deer seasons in 2010 and 2011 and on a few other occasions. i cranked it up Nov. 2, 2012 and it ran well. Went 12 hours or so on less than half a bottle of propane. My only maintenance has been annual oil changes. I did find a voltage filter at Fry's so my hunting buddy can run his CPAP machine and I can feel more comfortable plugging in other expensive electronics. (And the pictures from my trail camera look better on my notebook computer than on some dinky viewer.) When it is in use, I have it in a plastic dog house. The roof comes off easily for getting it in or out. Next thing is to get a long 15 amp extension cord and move it away from my shack. That will reduce the noise a lot. Meanwhile, I spent $100 plus on getting my in-town gasoline generator running again. Let the gasoline get old ... not a problem with propane. I've upped my rating of this propane generator to five stars. November 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by More than your money's worth! Started after 5 or 6 pulls the first time, one pull thereafter. Would not start my 1.5 HP big drill press, but Did Not Stall the engine when overloaded like this. Started and ran a 3/4 HP (7.5A) hand power saw (brush motor) at full load with no noticeable loss of power vs. standard mains electricity. Actual continuous load rating is 1350 Watts. Design and Construction has that primitive old fashioned "made in China" look to it. No fancy digital computer controls etc. but the governor worked well and precisely and is screwdriver adjustable over a small range and this machine never stalled, never hunted, never misfired. The best thing is that because of the propane fuel, I did not have to clean it up, drain gas, add preservative, etc. I just waited for it to cool and put it back in its box for storage, confident that a month or two years from now it will be ready to run in any emergency. At the price, this is a very good insurance policy to save the food in my freezer during a power outage. June 10, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So Far, So Good So Far, So Good. Haven't used it as whole lot as it runs a weekend camp that is off the grid. Reasonably quiet. Runs my table and skill saw, but had some trouble with a 5 hp shop vac. Takes a few pulls to start but could be because the LPG hose is empty. But it does start - fired it up half dozen times or so. Seems to meet my needs just fine, and, so far, been very pleased with the purchase. August 14, 2012
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Decent value but you get what you pay for From day one, one of the choke settings would not work, so it was using a lot more propane than necessary. Also, the plastic ring near the propane input on the generator was broken. This is a design flaw as mentioned by another reviewer. The recoil start rubs against the propane hose and plastic ring every time you pull, so the rope gets frayed and will eventually break. Totally stupid design. I sent it back to the manufacturer, but when I got it back, they had done nothing to it. It had the exact same problem. Then I let it sit for a month without starting it. Now it won't start at all and I'm basically just giving it away. If you need something temporary this will work for you. Long term? No way. November 27, 2011
