Product Overview

  • Runs on clean, quiet and efficient liquid propane gas
  • 3250 running watts/4000 surge watts
  • 10-hour run time at 50% load on a common 20 lb. LPG cylinder
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. It's 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.
  • Uses a standard gas grill style LPG tank like the ones sold and refilled at The Home Depot
  • High altitude use: this generator is not recommended for high altitude use above 3,000 ft.
  • 7-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
  • 3250 running Watt/4,000 surge Watt
  • 5 ft. regulator hose is included in box
  • LPG propane tank is not included
  • Air cooled, AVR automatic voltage regulation, recoil start, low oil shut off, spark arrestor, full power panel, engine shut off switch, overload protected outlets
  • One 120-Volt RV plug, two 120-Volt outlets and one 12-Volt DC outlet
  • Run time equal to 10 hours at 50% load per 20 lb. of LPG fuel
  • Decibel rating: less than 68 dB
  • EPA approved

Questions & Answers

What kind of oil does this take

Asked by: Melody
I used standard 10-30 ASE motor oil.

Can this be used indoors

Asked by: mike
That's a big negative. Like any other generator, it produces carbon monoxide which is deadly so you definitely need to run this somewhere with plenty of ventilation. There are also warnings all over the unit and in the documentation regarding this.

Will this power a refrigerator and a freezer?

Asked by: Embilly
It should but it all depends on the watts drawn by each device. If there isn't information stating the watts used, you can normally multiply the volts (120) by the amps to estimate the watts needed. I was able to run 2 fridges on it for close to 3 days straight without issue.

I live in a trailer with no power, I have this LP Generator and love it...but now its hot here in Utah so I bought this LG Portable AC unit to cool my trailer down..I'm no electrician at all so I need some help..this AC unit works for about a hour or two then my Generator acts up.....the AC UNIT---115 Volts....1270 Watts...11.3 Rated Amps....I use a 25ft 12 gauge extension cord to connect the two...having trouble, can anyone help me please....thank you and God Bless..
Asked by: Chuck
my thoughts are running at 75% power the issue your having is the propane tank freezing up. I noted this in previously asked questions. When running at basically full load the propane tanks seem to freeze up so shutting down fuel thus engine shutdown or stumbling. To resolve the issue I float the tank in a tube of water. Not sure if this is the issue but sounds like a possibility or at least something to look at. Hope it helps, if the propane tank is cold try floating it in water.

4,000-Watt Clean Burning LPG Propane Gas Powered Portable Generator with RV Outlet is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 346.

I purchased the first one 2 years ago for a home we own in Florida. This past fall we lost power for 3 days, the result of a hurricane the generator operated flawlessly supplying power to the fridge, and a couple of rooms, Ran it during the day and shut it down at night, no problems starting it. I had a 900 watt generator for tailgating that failed after one season of football, seeing this on sale for about $100 less than what I paid for the first one, was a no brainer to purchase a second one for tailgating and after losing power during an ice storm in the northeast. I have seen comments regarding transporting this generator, I purchased a small dolly and mounted it to the bottom of the generator, the wheels are small so just good for hard surfaces. If going to be used for camping etc, I believe the wheel kit from a compeditor would work with minor modifications, the basic frame structure looks the same

We bought this generator for our travel trailer so we can make rest stops on long trips without having to hook up at a campsite. It has plenty power to run our generator and refrigerator. It's quieter than expected and light enough that one person can load and unload it. We have two 40 pound LP tanks on the trailer so there is plenty propane on board when we need it. There is a huge benefit to not needing to drain gasoline from the tank and lines when not in use. We would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a quiet and low maintenance generator.

Unfortunately there was some damage during shipping which chipped a guard on the air filter; but that does not affect the performance. Add your oil, connect the propane, set the choke, and pull! Started first pull! The price is great, and it will pay for itself the next time the power goes out by keeping our fridge running. Last power outage we lost over $500 in groceries =( The generator is not too loud, and came with everything but oil. They even included a funnel for filling up the oil! Overall good purchase experience, my friend who helped me unwrap it and attach the rubber feet wants one now.

Couldn't get it to start until I ignored the directions. Choke position is very touchy: you have to back it off fast or it stalls. Once it started, it wasn't as loud as I thought it would be.

I changed propane tanks and followed the instructions to the letter. Followed the trouble shooting guide ---to the letter=still no start. I call the support for Buffalo tools and they sent me a more in-depth trouble guide. found the mixer/carb was not passing the propane gas thru it. The support group said they would ship me a new replacement mixer/carb in 7-10 days and expected me to remove and install it. I ask for them to ship me another unit and a return shipping label to return the defective unit. That was not a option. So I returned it to Home Depot for a refund. That isn't what I call a warranty.
