Product Overview

The Sportsman Series 6000/7500-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 Gal. 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 watt, 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 Gal. 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.

Customer Questions & Answers

what manufacturer is the engine and is battery included?

Asked by: Rob
The manufacturer is Buffalo Tools Lawn & Garden, and is manufactured in China. Battery is not included but recommends a motorcycle battery. (can't use a car battery, or you'll change batteries more often because of cranking initial power requirements). Cannot use Natural gas (just mentioned though it does use LPG).

What is the battery used for

Asked by: Jazzy
The battery allows you to use the electric start. The range of batteries you can use is wide so you don't have to buy a proprietary product at an inflated cost.

Can it run a 5000btu air conditioner? And for how long?

Asked by: ray
Check the data plate on the air conditioner, that will be where you find the amperage rating of the unit. Typically, that size AC requires a 20 amp circuit, so yes, it will run an AC that size. The specs on the generator states it will run about 9 hours on gasoline and 6 hours on LPG.

7,500-Watt Dual Fuel Powered Portable Generator with Electric Start and Runs on LPG or Regular Gasoline is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 237.

Pull started on the first pull every time that I have started it, whether the first start up or just getting it going again after a refuel. Snowed in, having gone through the 15 gallons I had on hand, now I have it hooked to the propane bottle from the side of my house :) Doesn't seem to use oil, and doesn't dirty it up too quick. Electricity is clean, it is the right frequency and voltage. It is already the most useful and dependable generator that i have ever owned.

No damage to unit when unpacked, despite several rips and indentations in packing carton. Assembly directions were adequate. I plan to use only LPG to avoid storage concerns with the current gasoline. Unit started on 2nd pull, ran flawlessly for about 15 minutes. Purchased a battery on Amazon. Had to change the cable connections from 'post' terminals to 'blade' terminals. Unit started within a few seconds when using the battery to start the unit. Again ran flawlessly for about 15 minutes. Had to purchase a 30 amp cord to connect unit to my Reliance Power Switch for using the generator for power in my house. Waiting for a storm that causes power outage. Recommended this specific model to several friends looking for a generator. I got it on sale at Home Depot on 12/31/16, almost half price, great deal.

I spent about 30 minutes putting on the tires which were stored in the engine, the handles and stand offs. The oil was in a plastic bag in case there was a leak. I put oil in the crank case and attached the hot wire to the battery (came with the generator). I hooked up the battery cable with the phillips screw drive that was in the box with a spark plug wrench and a 12 volt batter jumper cables. I hooked up the LPG, pulled the choke and then put the key in the key hole and started the engine within 4 seconds. The generator worked well. Sportsman did a nice job!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sportsman 7500 dual fuel generator I was looking for a propane portable generator.I did look for about 2 months till I settled on the sportsman.I bought it at home depot because I knew they would stand behind it if needed.The generator had some minor shipping damage. I called sportman customer service and Heather was really great about getting me replacement parts.The generator runs very well on propane and starts with 1 or two pulls.I really don't feel electric start would be needed even that it is capable by adding a battery.I know it's probably made in China but the quality is there at least for now.I would recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sportsman 6000 Generator I purchased this exact generator 7 years ago when I moved to the beach. I had not had occasion to use it until Hurricane Matthew struck this summer. I was out of power for ten days. Rolled it out of the garage, filled it with gas and oil and it started on first pull every day! I had enough power to run my refrigerator, freezer, big screen TV, 2 lamps, my modem/ router and room to plug in more if I needed. Outstanding service from this product. Best purchase I ever made. Could charge my devices and lost no food as all of my neighbors did. Can not say enough good things about this generator! ..Jill in Myrtle Beach SC

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Must if you live in rural areas So far, I am very pleased with this power unit. Since I am building a 3000 ft home with no temp power this is a great unit to power compressors and power tools. Runs all day on a tank of gasoline with adequate capacity for a full construction crew. Easy to move and with dual fuel it is great value. I would have rated it 5 stars if they had supplied the required battery for the electric start.

I have only used this unit with propane , and it started on the first pull . fairly quiet and it does not disappoint in the power department . ran my freezer , well pump and water heater no problem . if it only idled down when unloaded it would have gotten 5 stars . very reliable and more than enough power to suit my needs , would highly recommend this generator !!!

Correct battery is UB12120NB #40842 which can be found on the internet for less than $50 and uses nut-bolt connection. Sportsman nor Home Depot sell this battery! Unit started right up with both gas and propane. This is a very robust generator, can handle significant loads and is very well built. I am very happy with this purchase.
