Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

The Sportsman Series 7500-Watt Dual Fuel Generator can power common major household appliances and power tools and provide emergency power during blackouts. It's great for running the RV while out on the road, or for keeping essential appliances going during a power outage with either regular gasoline or LPG (liquid propane gas). The 6.2-gallon gas tank allows the unit to run on 87 octane gasoline for up to nine hours (at 50% load). You can also simply connect a typical gas grill 20 lb. cylinder to the unit with the supplied hose. The benefit of LPG is you will never experience a no-run situation due to bad gas again. With 7500 peak / 6000 rated watts, this powerful generator can handle the needs of most contractors, homeowners and recreational activities. Use the generator right out of the box with the recoil start or install a motorcycle battery (not included) to activate the electric start feature. The generator boasts an engine run time of nine hours at 50% on a common 20 lb. (gas grill type) cylinder (LPG cylinder not included) or 6.2 gallons of unleaded gasoline. A 5 ft. propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for added convenience, and the 13 HP engine is surprisingly quiet, running at less than 80 dB.

  • 7500 peak surge watts and 6000 rated running watts can run the RV, household appliances and power tools
  • Great for use while camping, for emergency power during a blackout or on the job site
  • Runs on gasoline or liquid propane fuel, giving you flexibility while out on the road or during an emergency
  • Automatic voltage regulation, low oil shutoff, spark arrestor, engine shutoff switch and circuit breaker
  • 13 HP, 4-stroke OHV engine delivers maximum performance
  • Recoil or electric start when a 12-volt motorcycle/ATV battery is installed (battery sold separately; see owner's manual for recommended battery and battery installation)
  • Four 120-volt outlets, one 120-volt RV outlet, one 120/240-volt outlet and one 12-volt DC outlet
  • Mobility kit with wheels and handle for easy portability
  • 6.2-gallon fuel tank; run time is nine hours at 50% load
  • 120/240-volt operation
  • Propane tank sold separately
  • EPA approved
  • Dual Fuel Generator

Answer: 
Yes, you should be able to run your computer on it, but make sure you use a quality surge protector outlet strip. If you're using the generator as an emergency power back up, don't expect to get to the internet unless your cable or telephone lines are active.

You do what you have to do. I have a 4500 watt 20 year old Coleman generator that I ran non-stop for 2 weeks when we had the terrible hurricanes 12 years ago. No electric start, no LPG. It's hardwired to my home running all my 120 VAC appliances and lights. It ran at well over 80% load during this time with absolutely no failure. I only stopped it to refuel and change oil.

Answer: 
This generator can do, on propane, the same thing it can do on Gasoline. I personally would not run the 7500 generator for two days straight, even though it would handle it. I would give it a rest, maybe 1/2 hour to cool down, every 8 hours or so. Don't open the refrigerator or freezer at the shutdown time.

Answer: 
Given that this is a portable generator, it is not intended to run for days on end without any down time. While I'm sure that it could handle it in the case of an emergency, it is not a backup generator intended to be used for days at a time without a break. Easy way to tell this is to look at the number of hours the generator you are looking at can go between oil changes. Also, if it doesn't have an oil Read More
Given that this is a portable generator, it is not intended to run for days on end without any down time. While I'm sure that it could handle it in the case of an emergency, it is not a backup generator intended to be used for days at a time without a break. Easy way to tell this is to look at the number of hours the generator you are looking at can go between oil changes. Also, if it doesn't have an oil pump, and oil filter, you probably don't want to run it for extended periods. I love the generator for the construction sites I use it on, and as a back up when power goes out for a few hours, but wouldn't plan to live life running on it for days at a time. Read Less

Answer: 
Both systems start very easy on their own. I start mine with a key and it starts with in 5-10 seconds. Switching to propane there is about a 2 minute transition period to where the generator is running at a low rpm and then levels out to normal running. Switching back to gas is a bit faster. Going back and forth is a matter of a switch. I hope this helps Rob.

The users manual does contain a very detailed parts list that includes an exploded parts view of the engine and generator components, which suggests to me that the generator manufacturer also manufacturers the engine. Obviously, this is speculation on my part. If this is a critical concern to you, you may wish to contact the manufacturer directly. The customer service number listed in the manual is 866-460-9436 (M-F, 8A - 4P, CST).
A battery is not included, but is readily available from the manufacturer or other retailers. As a practical matter, the battery you purchase should not exceed the manufacturer dimension specifications, since the battery "compartment" (it is a steel flat platform welded to the frame) has limited clearance.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 144 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Would like to know how it runs! I ordered the generator on line, so far I have received one that had damage to the generator itself so I returned it and had another one ordered. The second one came in with damage to the case of the motor so I returned it also. In both cases there was no damage to the box. The damage had to be done prior to the units being packaged at the factory. The third machine is on it's way now. We will see if it is damaged when I have the folks at Home Depot un-box it at the store, if it looks OK I will take it home and see how it runs. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Power for all my tools away from home Out on the farm with no electric this generator is a must, runs all my tools and the well at home when the town power is out, and that's often. My portable air compressor loves it. That's a tire getting air in the photo. I like all the 120 vt plugs and the battery charger. Robert May 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent piece of equipment!! Started on 1st pull and 1st electric start. Also ran excellent on LPG. Ran better than I had imagined. Hooked up on 2 110v campers and didn't hardly put a load on it. Let it run 1 night til it ran out of gas. Filled it up and started on 1st pull. The noise wasn't that bad either. Was able to sleep without any problem. All in all it was an excellent 4 day camping trip. Would highly recommend it to anyone!! Was well built and flawless out of the box. Great features and ease of plugging in different power sources as well as operation. different Thanks for an excellent running machine!! June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Generator and great price. Was a great price for the generator. It started up right away once setup with no difficulty. July 5, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best Generator The little bit of assembly was very easy. Before I installed a battery. The generator stated on the second pull on the rope. Very impressive, to me. July 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect choice generator for RV'ing This generator has plenty of power to handle the biggest RV with everything running. Being able to run on propane makes it a perfect choice for backup power at our site where the nearest gas station is more than 12 miles away. However, we always have propane on site. My only complaint is the cover (sold separate) does not fit over the unit with the handles attached. June 24, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just one problem! Great generator, powers a food trailer with large frig, vent hood, water heater, lights etc. with no problem only con is it is really loud. June 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great purchase for the money Generator was easy to assemble, just install wheels, handles and add oil, (oil not included with generator) so grab a couple quarts of 30wt. Electric start is wonderful (battery NOT included). Picked up a motorcycle battery at Wally World part # ES5LBS fit's perfectly. Hooked up the propane and it started on the second crank. No idle control so it's runs at high rpm all the time. This is not a quiet generator but mine is in a generator shed with sound proofing that makes the noise level very acceptable. This is hooked up to a 250gal propane tank for fuel so no gasoline issues.Plenty of power to run a household off line, and we put a 2k load on it and it barely noticed it. Very hard to beat this dual fuel genny for the price imo. May 10, 2016
