The Sportsman Propane 6000/7000-Watt Portable Generator easily powers common household appliances and power tools. 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.

  • Uses a standard gas grill-style LPG tank like the ones sold and refilled at The Home Depot
  • 13 hp, 4-stroke OHV, recoil start engine delivers maximum performance

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product great price! My dad bought this generator for me as a house warming gift in case of power outages caused by hurricanes and winter storms (living in East Pennsylvania) Havent used it too much, but got the optional battery with it and it fires up every time! right away! I recommend getting a trickle charger for the battery. We went to Home Depot and got the Ridgid 25 foot 30 amp cord, the adapter to 20 amp and a 25 foot 20 amp cord with regular 15 amps coming off it as well as 12 guage standard cords (cost over $200) but will be ready for the next storm!!!!!!! next im going to get a 100 lb propane tank insted of using the smaller 20 lbs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works wonderfully Two days after I had 200A service and a bus transfer switch installed with an 220V outlet for the generator added to the outside of the house. Hurrican Sandy hit and I lost power for 2-1/2 days. I ran the generator continuously for the entire time, except for tank changes and after I purchased a 40lb tank, I could run continuously for 24 hours. Since I live in a rural area, the generator ran my well pump, furnane, refrigerator, lighting and my big screen TV and surround sound system. November 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pleased with this generator Hooked up this Generator to the propane, hit the electric starter and it started immediately. It put out a good steady 120/240 volts and made much less noise than the gas generator it replaced. What more can you ask of a generator? January 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 7kw Propane generator I haven't had to use it for a storm yet, but i have test fired it and used it to run a 220 air compressor a few times. Right out of the box, put the wheels, handle and oil in it and it ran without issues. I look forward to it being ready to run when I need it. Propane is a much better choice for devices like this due to it requiring no special storage because of the fuel going bad. Great price for a great tool. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really like the propane generators - got extended warranty It was between this and the Generac propane - I thought the Generac might be a bit better made but the Sportsmans output is greater and the Sportman seems to run longer - many of you don't know and Home Depot really doesn't advertise that they have a three year protection plan for around $130 - that clinched it for me - I bought the Sportsman & the service plan - you go to your local Home Depot with your online purchase receipt as soon as you can and they will sell you the protection plan - they did not offer this plan on line and many don't even know it's an option - generator arrived on time and in good condition June 3, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by fine portable generator for occasional use Bought to replace a smaller gasoline unit. It took a little expermenting to assemble, the writer of the uinstructions clearly uses english as a second language. It takes a strong pull to start with the manual start but it kicked right over. Had no trouble hooking it up t a propane tank, will probably getr it connected to the hous propane syhstem.Used an old auto battery to get an electric start, worked fineThis machine is far more suitable for my wife to be able to use for power outages. For the money it is very good buy. July 9, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best thing i did. arrived on time,intact,undamaged. a little work to assemble,but not abig deal.bought a new propane tank.after hooking up, manually started by directions. did not get a battery yet as will be stored hopefully over the winter. the engine even with its size was not difficult to start. follow the directions to pull starter rope slowly,not jerk rapidly, plugged in furnace fan to test,did not even slow down generator.ihave great expections for this generator. so far I would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great! Quieter than expected! Bought this with the intention to make it easier for my wife in case she needed it and I were out of town. Night before Thanksgiving power went out in a snow storm, lots of damaged tree and downed lines. The generator was easy to hook up and keep fueled ( Propane ) without the danger of spilling gas on a hot generator. It ran for 4 days/nights .Its even quieter than we expected. December 17, 2014
