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. 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 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.

Depends on your set up..We are offgrid and when the sun isn't around for a few days we just run a plug from the gen to a converter box and it runs thru the 110..The fan on a woodstove isn't very much draw and either is the fridge...The stove on the other hand if electric can be a good size load if running with the other appliances..

Answer: 
The only decibel rating I can see in the manual is <68db, That is the noise measurement of the generator. I know you can look on the internet and there is a chart that will tell you other familiar items that compare to the <95 db rating. I hope that helps. Thank you.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
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 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 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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Generator I'm pleased with the ease of operation of the generator. Wish it was a little less noisy. February 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bought 2, 1 perfect , other damaged I ordered 2 generators in December, 2015. Both arrived wrapped together in plastic wrap. I took the top one off and had it running within 10 minutes. No problems, perfect. starts with 2 pulls of the cord. The bottom one upon trying to start had crushed air filter assembly. I haven't been able to start it since I haven't received a replacement air filter assembly yet. No evident damge to the box. Disappointed. Apparently damaged producted shipped. Hope part arrives soon. January 12, 2016
