PRODUCT OVERVIEW

Model # GEN7500DF

Internet # 204789149

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

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

You will have to use the chart that is in the manual. Once you know the running and surge watts you will be using depending on the items you will be hooking up to the generator, the chart will be able to assist you will choosing the correct size extension cord. Thank you.

Answer: 
Yes, but you'll need a GARRETSON IMPCO STYLE LOW PRESSURE REGULATOR 039-122. It is basically a demand regulator. As long as the generator is running this will allow the gas to flow to the engine. If the engine stops, the flow of gas stops too. It has a priming button to allow initial startup of the engine. Just google the Garretson Impco Regulator and you'll find sources, it should be under $100.

I have read claims that your generator will run hotter on Natural Gas but I don't have any evidence to prove that. I've converted a few portable generators to run on natural gas/propane/gasoline. They all run cleaner on natural gas than gasoline. Read Less

Answer: 
Could be, but not from the manufacturer. It is a portable generator and as such needs a portable fuel. Natural gas is not normally considered a portable fuel. If you are looking to use it as a home backup generator, I would use caution. That is not the design of the engine, and you will probably burn it out if you have an extended run on it.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 139 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 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
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Too loud Too loud. Was disappointed in run time per gallon of gas. May 17, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good I had been looking for a duel fuel emergency generator for a few years. While I have not had to use it in an emergency situation, I have run it and it runs well. It is less noisy, than some, but still makes a decent amount of noise with no load. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great generator Easy to start, has plenty of outlets, easy to move around with the fold away handles. It's about as noisy as a lawnmower. I hooked up a battery so now I just turn a key to start. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by High Hopes Dashed- Disappointed and Regretfully Returned This Generator We had high expectations for this generator, which was shipped to our house. Unfortunately, it got banged up in shipping due to the poor packaging (a single layer top-open cardboard box). This item comes truck freight and is very heavy, and my wife and I struggled to move it with a standard dolly, even with a winching strap. So, I would consider it a 3 person lift item, thus the top open box makes no sense. So, for starters, you have to cut the box down to get the generator out of the box, which differs from other manufacturers who package the generator on a styrofoam base in a two part box where the top lifts off. There are other disappointing surprises which led to our return of this item: 1. The generator ships without the $75 12 volt battery needed for the electric start, unlike other generators. 2. The generator ships with no oil in the crankcase and none in the box, so you have to go buy 2 quarts of 10W-30 HD NON-synthetic oil. Having bought a lot of generators, weedeaters, mowers, etc, I was really stunned to find no oil shipped with the unit, as this meant yet another trip to the store from the remote farm location. 3. The propane regulator is a cheap looking unit, and comes with no teflon propane tape (the yellow roll), so you will have to buy one. Since this is a life safety related item, (and quite inexpensive), I was again surprised that a small amount of propane rated teflon tape was not included. 4. LOTS OF ASSEMBLY IS REQUIRED. The axles, wheels, handles and propane regulator all have to be assembled. Then you have to add the oil and fuel and or attach the propane tank. Figure 2-3 hours of extra labor to do this properly. 5. The only cable included is the one for 12 VDC hookup to a car battery for charging. No accessory cables are provided. We purchased a generator from a major retailer a few years ago and it came with the battery, oil, one multi-plug cable and the handles and wheels were already attached. The box did not have to be destroyed to get the generator unpacked. So, while my opinion may be an outlyer, we returned this item for a full refund, as it appears to be a "Much assembly required" item that really does nothing but save-a-buck for the seller and shift the assembly costs to the consumer. When you pay this much for a generator, you should not get cheated on two quarts of oil. Unbelievable. May 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Versatile & Dependable I bought this to protect against power outages in South Florida. It's been a long while since the last hurricane, so I'm not feeling too lucky these days. I received the generator last week, installed the wheels and handles the following day, added engine oil, ordered a battery which I installed, and then started the generator (using the newly installed battery) on the very first try. I let it run 30 minutes on propane fuel. My only minor criticism is that finding a small engine battery to fit the battery tray was a bit cumbersome, and the one I eventually got had battery bolts that would not fit through the generator's battery cable eyelet. Installing a battery should be the easiest part to getting this engine operational, not the hardest. I purchased the battery from an online retailer. It would make for a better experience, and more favorable reviews if the manufacturer included a battery and modified the price accordingly. I was thrilled to have it fire up almost immediately on propane, and found the running noise to be acceptable. I appreciate the dual-fuel concept, but until I am forced to use gasoline (if there are public supply limitations during a power outage), I will stick with propane to avoid the residue that accompanies gas use. My initial experience with this generator has all been favorable. April 26, 2016
