The Sportsman Propane 3,250/4,000-Watt Portable Generator can power common household appliances and power tools. RV ready, it is equipped with one - 120-Volt RV plug, two -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. Its 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 hrs 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A sound investment ! Well I needed a new generator for my Truck Camper , as it is an older unit the A/C draws 20 amps and was too big for my other generator ! So after some shopping I decided too go with Propane instead of the cheaper gas models , I am so happy that I did , I have only placed about 4 hours on it so far . The unit seems too be everything they said it was . I Love it ,,, Ken June 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well I ordered this when it was the deal of the day, just before Hurricane Sandy was announced. Delivered in 4 days, just before the storm for which I was glad as I have been without power for 5 days now. It works very well. I don't know how to determine load, but I have been getting about 6.5 hours per tank running the refrigerator, tv,computer, and alternating the freezer and pellet stove. I love the propane as you can't get gasoline in this area and propane doesn't give the gas fumes and is safer to transport than gas. It is easy to operate and change oil. I do wish it came with wheels but I put it on a flat bed dolly and it moved easily. November 3, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bargain price for this generator This generator does what it is supposed to do. It starts easily on two pulls, can handle a good sized load, can charge a 12V battery, and now comes with an "RV" receptacle which is a NEMA TT-30R type 120V 30A capacity. September 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good purchase for the price and portability Add 220 to produce the perfect emergency generator June 23, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator This generator came with low expectations. I bought it on sale at a ridiculously low price. However, it has turned out to be a gem. I use at my off grid cabin in the San Luis Valley. It starts every time. It's not a loud generator. It goes through practically no oil. It's not as pretty as a Honda or other high price generators, but it runs like a charms and powers everything I put to it: all power tools, including a massive hammer drill, microwave, etc. Finally, it runs forever on a single tank of propane. I used it building the cabin for probably three hours a day over two weeks. This is a great generator. August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Generator Propane is the way to go since propane gas lasts basically forever in the bottle. Gasoline goes bad over time and ethanol blends are horrible on the small carbs in most generators. Would suggest that you pick up a propane bottle and have it filled where they fill bottles from a big tank. The exchange bottles give you an older bottle and often only partially filled. This generator handles the loads well and is reasonably quiet. January 30, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great buy for the price This is the second one I have ordered, it is for a friend. There is one problem that has to be corrected the RV outlet had a reverse polarity indication when I checked all outlets with my meter, it was wired as if it was right side up, but as an RV plug it is inverted as to accept the RV plug in. Called the help line and explained this to the nice lady and explained this and was informed "it must be wired wrong can you rewire it'". I said I could but would it void the warranty? I was informed it would not. Other than that this is a great buy for the price. I also ask if I could run synthetic oil in it and was also informed yes you can but do not mix regular oil with the synthetic. November 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Far So Good After reviewing online manual for a few days, to get a good understanding of the operations, our generator was delivered as expected....filled with oil, check everything, hook up LP and on first pull it fired up....very happy with this so far...we bought it for our camper and to have back power at home, when needed.....camping test in two weeks, will update then on it's performance. so far one happy camper....BW of Tucson..p.s. I did add a GFCI adapter to each outlet for added protection, "NOTE" as long as you don't directly hook it to your home electrical circuit ,a earth ground isn't needed..... August 4, 2012
