Ideal for camping and running essential household appliances during power outages, this generator boasts an engine runtime of 8 hours at 50% on a common 20 lb. gas grill-type cylinder (LPG cylinder not included). The engine is surprisingly quiet, running at less than 80 dB. It also burns cleaner than gas engines, with carbon monoxide emissions up to 40% lower, and propane will not degrade, so you can store several tanks for an unlimited amount of time.

Answer: 
MAX loads (per the manual) on the 240V plug is 30 Amps. There are 2 pairs of 120V plugs; each has a max of 20 amps. The manual provides a table with expected wattage draws for various devices (which varies depending on whether they are 120V or 240V), and cautions that the generator can handle 'surge' loads (about 6,000 watts) only briefly without damage.

Yes, I found it has sufficient power to handle the startup surge load of my 220V well pump and still keep my other 110 volt loads, such as my basement lights and outlets, on. My lights sometime dim for a second or two, and I would caution against running sensitive electronics.

Yes, I found it has sufficient power to handle the startup surge load of my 220V well pump and still keep my other 110 volt loads, such as my basement lights and outlets, on. My lights sometime dim for a second or two, and I would caution against running sensitive electronics. If your 110V loads are significant, you may need to make sure the draw on each of the two phases is roughly balanced or you may exceed the generator's capacity on one of the phases. I hooked up my generator to a manual transfer switch, besides being safer than stringing extension cords everywhere, has the added advantage of allowing me to see the load on each phase. Read Less

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 274 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best generator purchase Love this generator,, clean LPG, no smell during storage, easy to operate/start. Little heavier than expected, but when the power went out, for over 5 hours, it ran most of the house power needs. Just one note. wished the power cord was 5 feet longer July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The first time I moved the generator the handle broke off!! It was only spot welded on bad design and bad wellding !!! job!!! without the handle it is very heavy to move!!!!!!!!! June 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Generator I purchased one of these generators 3 years and a 30# LP cylinder. I set it up and ran it to make sure everything worked but I did not put a battery in it. It sat in the corner of my garage for 3 years and I had to finally put it to use after the bad storms last Friday. Worked great, started on the second pull. I ran it for 14 hours straight and I still have LP left in the cylinder. Best investment I made. June 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by have only had less than one month got unit for $650.00. connected to my well and two refrigerators, ran for about 20 minutes. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far I really like I wanted propane because of long term storage. All I had to do was put on the wheels and handle( 10-15 min.) add oil, hooked up 20 lb propane tank, 3 pulls starts right up.Have not had to use it yet so we'll see.Put in a transfer switch to use for power outages. May buy a battery, but as long as it starts this easy ,really don't need the electric start May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great purchase I switched from a gas generator to an LP generator. Great choice for fuel storage and ease of use. May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Received as advertised. Easy to assemble. Once I obtained a battery it started right up. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I was looking for. Ordered on line for delivery to store. Delivery within a week. Store pickup was easy and convenient. Store staff was very courteous and helped me load product into my truck. Slight assembly was easy and the generator started right up. Only complaint is that Home Deport should have had a battery available for purchase with this unit as I had to go elsewhere for the battery. In addition, the only battery I could find with the correct power specs was slightly larger than the battery mount on the generator so I had to make a small modification to the mounting bracket.
