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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Satified with purchase ordered generator on line, picked up in store. Employees very professional and helpful. Got home and assembled the generator. Put oil in the engine, connected to LP tank and pulled twice. Generator started up and ran perfectly. Ordered battery. It came in. connected to terminals, hit the start button and the generator cranked right up. I have this connected to a manual switch box and it works exactly as designed. The LP gas feature is what attracted me to this generator. No worry about having the carburetor getting gummed with the ethanol fuel forced on us by the government. The only way to go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by propane backup generator This is one of those purchases that you hope you never have to use (i.e. following a hurricane or other disaster). But its comforting to know that it will be exactly what you need if you need it and that it will work as advertised. Generator started right up on the third pull of the cord and immediately with a car battery that I use in my boat (generator is designed for a motorcycle battery which isn't a practical battery to buy for an emergency generator that may be used who knows when). To use a car battery just add alligator clips to the terminals that would connect to a motorcycle battery. Once the generator starts the battery can either be removed or left connected. If disconnected keep the alligator clips separated from each other and from touching any metal on the generator to be on the safe side. Generator manual says that generator must be grounded which seemed to be overkill as the outlets have a ground terminal meaning the generator must be internally grounded already making any further grounding irrelevent. Called the company and they confirmed a ground rod or waterpipe ground was no longer required. The great thing about this generator is that I no longer have to go through the process of draining gas out of a tank and carburetor and putting an ounce of oil in the plug hole to store this generator. Just hook up your grill propane tank, run the generator then put it away after removing the battery and getting back to the grill. Nice!!!! September 8, 2015
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 Great Generator I like this generator but after having it a few years I want to replace the spark plug however I can not find any information on what spark plug to use. I even went to two Home Depot stores near me and they don't carry the plug nor this generator. Does anyone know what spark plug replaces the original one? August 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely Awesome! We bought it 2 yrs ago and no problems at all. I love the Propane runs really clean, very low Maintence. The only thing is the tires going flat very offen but other than that is GREAT! Living in Florida with all the hurricane makes our life's so much easier August 28, 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 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
