Product Overview

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 2.8 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 Circuit Protection. It boasts an engine run time of 12 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 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.

  • Uses a standard gas grill style LPG tank like the ones sold and refilled at The Home Depot
  • 2.8 HP, 4 stroke OHV, recoil start engine, delivers maximum performance
  • Generator runs on clean, quiet and efficient liquid propane gas (LPG), so you never have to worry about bad gasoline fouling the engine
  • Weighs only 55 lbs. - very portable and easy to store
  • 1,350 running Watts/2,000 surge Watts
  • 5 ft. regulator hose is included in box
  • LPG propane tank is not included
  • Air cooled, spark arrestor, UL listed electrical components, engine shut off switch
  • 1-12-Volt DC outlet and 1-120-Volt outlet
  • Run time equal to 12 hours at 50% load per 20 lbs. of LPG fuel
  • Decibel rating: less than 65 dB
  • EPA approved
  • Propane Generator

Answer: 
with proper set up you can do 110 volt but nothing 220 volt meaning only 1 side of your breaker box will be powered. here is how.
Use a 15 amp breaker in the breaker box make sure to have a cord that will handle say 20 amps cut of the female end of the cord wire it up with the black wire in the 15 amp breaker (make sure the breaker is off) put the white wire at the common and the green wire to earth Read More

Power goes out shut off the main breaker do not forget to do this or it will fry the generator.
Start the generator plug in the male end of the plug to the generator. Turn on 15 amp breaker and poof you got one side of the rail in the breaker box with power. With a little luck you chose the side that has the fridge.
One more thing test this with your fridge alone and see if it handles it ok some fridges will pull more surge then this thing can handle.

Answer: 
A 2,000-watt generator is a bit small for powering everything in a residence, but it is adequate for keeping your refrigerator and a freezer chest running, plus a few fluorescent or LED lights on an emergency basis during a power outage. If you need to run appliances, such as a washing machine, dishwasher, air conditioner, etc., you should consider a generator with an output of 5,000 watts, or more. A 24 Read More

Answer: 
You can use synthetic oil. You cannot switch back and forth between synthetic and non synthetic. You must pick one type and always use that type in the generator. Thank you.

Answer: 
We only suggest using the generators outdoors and not indoors. The generator has an exhaust and will need proper ventilation. The 2000 surge watt propane generators do not have a 30 amp outlet on them. If you have any other questions please contact customer service at 800-568-6657. Thank you.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 54 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of Time and Money I have bought both the gasoline and popane versions of this generator for use in my work. The propane model had to be started with a cordless hand drill because the entire pully assembly broke. The gasoline model's generator dropped to about 90 volts AC after a few months' use. I have wasted so much time and money on generators of varous makes and models that I am now using solar panels in series to produce from 20 to 40v DC (depending upon sunlight) and stepping that down to 12v DC using a transformer. It apears to me that most generators are made by very few OEM suppliers from China (even B&S) and that the quality is about as bad as it gets. I've gone solid state and have no plans to change back. June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best generator ever! This generator was easy to carry, set up, and start. Using the propane as a fuel source sure beats spilling gasoline. Seemed very efficient fuel wise. The only part on the generator that was hot after running it for several hours was the exhaust. July 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not a very Reliable Model When I received this unit it would not start so I call the 800 number and they were not helpful. I discovered on my own that the choke butterfly valve was interfering with the air cleaner filter and not opening up all of the way. I fixed and the unit worked good the first time I used it. The second time I used it one of the internal control panel components fried (I think it was a capacitor). The engine continued to run fine, but the generator was not putting out any electricity. October 6, 2015
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Propane generator Runs ok and it is just the size I needed at a good price I have not used enough to give full review but I am very satisfied at the time One thing that was apeeling to me was using propane as opposed to gas March 1, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good! So far, so good! We bought this as an emergency backup unit to keep our refrigerator/freezer going in a blackout -- we have lost food twice in the past. After looking it over and carefully reading the instructions, we went though the startup drill several times to make sure we knew what we were doing. This was worthwhile since we hadn't any experience with LPG-fueled small engines. Left it idling several hours for a break-in, came back the next day for a couple of startup drills and then tested the output with varying loads with electric space heaters. ---AOK! December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding performance! This is the best generator I have ever owned! It is soooo quiet! I can actually hold a conversation with my wife while standing right next to it while it is running! Also it don't put off the stinky smell that gas generators do. I bought this unit to run a 5,000 BTU A/C unit on my small camper and it runs it with no problems. Be sure you stop and pick up some 10w-30 motor oil for it though because it does not come with any oil in it. It does come with the propane hose and a 12v cord that plugs into it so that you can charge a battery. I also recommend getting a propane gauge for your propane tank so you can keep up with how much propane is in the tank. I am very proud of this generator and I am so glad I bought it instead of a gas one. November 14, 2015
