PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # GEN7000LP

Internet # 202222975

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.

  • Easy to transport and maneuver when the included wheel kit is installed
  • 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
  • Runs on clean, quiet and efficient liquid propane gas (LPG), so you never have to worry about bad gasoline fouling the engine
  • 6000 running watts/7000 surge watts
  • 5 ft. regulator hose is included in box
  • LPG propane tank is not included
  • Features air-cooled design, AVR (automatic voltage regulation), low-oil shutoff, spark arrestor, full power panel, engine shutoff switch and overload protected outlets
  • Electric and recoil start; battery for electric start not included
  • Includes four 120V outlets, one 120/240V outlet and one 12V DC outlet
  • Runtime equal to 8 hours at 50% load per 20 lbs. of LPG fuel
  • Decibel rating of less than 80 dB for quiet operation
  • A 12V motorcycle battery no larger than 7-1/4 in. L x 6-1/2 in. L x 3 in. W is required for electric start
  • Ideal battery required is 7-1/8 in. L x 6 in. H x 3 in. W, 130 minimum CCA (cold cranking amps)

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

The 7000 propane generator is a 6000 running and 7000 surge watt generator. The 120 outlets are 20 amps and the 220 outlet is a 30 amp. Make sure to not go over the allotted running wattage and amperage for the generator. Thank you.

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.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 269 reviewers.
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 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 Easy Start Every Time! On our third year using this with our 5th Wheel. Excellent consistent output. EZ start every time,,,rarely requires a 2nd pull,,,even after sitting over the winter. 5 Gal propane tank lasts two weeks using jenny 2 - 3 hours/day to recharge batteries and run water heater,,,etc,,, One of my best purchases ever!!! March 23, 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. February 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad Experience It seemed like a good idea to purchase a generator that ran on propane helping to protect the air quality. The generator began to misfire after 1 month. It is now in repair. The tool rental dept. told me that if they couldn't fix It, that they would send it to the manufacturer for repair. I had to call 5 times to find out the status of my machine ! Only to find out that because of the snapped off choke control, they ordered a new carburetor ? Another week with no communication ! February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very satisfied Just purchased this fall to be ready for winter power outages. I have used it already. I wired in a transfer switch in my house to make it easier to hook up the generator when needed. They work great together. I have not purchased a battery for the electric start feature yet, But the generator started on the second or third pull. The handle and wheels were very easy to assemble and make it very easy to move from the detached garage to the house when the need arises. I love that it is LP gas powered because your gas will not go bad. Unlike regular gasoline these days which seems to gum up a lot of small engine carburetors. Would definitely recommend this generator. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Propane Generator So glad to get a generator that will start. Tired of gas generators carburetor's getting stopped up. February 10, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far so good Have only had the unit a few weeks. I purchased this unit as a backup power supply for our house. The gas unit we had previous was always a problem after sitting for months. Even after using fuel stabilizer the gas would gum up and cause the carb to leak. I am hooking this unit up to our 1000 gal house tank and should never run out of fuel. Having a little trouble hooking this up to my auto gen transfer switch. This unit has a manual shut off switch for the gas flow which also is the only way to turn it off. I have purchased an electric shutoff valve for a forklift that should do the trick. I wish they would follow up with a review request in a year. That would give all of us a better idea of quality. December 22, 2015
