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).

Can you run your home computer with it?

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 210.
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

We were after the LPG as the primary fuel to avoid gasoline fouling issues and a minimum 5,000 watts to support a remote well. The generator fired up first time and though noisy (they all are when they get bigger) it performed as advertised. It's only been in service a month or two and has only been used in testing, so too soon to address durability. On the down side, the instructions were weak at best (but set up is intuitive) and unfortunately the battery that HD chat guided me to had the wrong cable connections to match up with the generator, so I took another 20 mile trip into town to change out the connection from the generator to match the battery.

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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't order it First of all it arrived in a damaged box with holes. It wouldn't hold a charge and would surge. The company wanted us to "work on it" by "adjusting the governor screw etc". For the price you pay,it should work when you get it. We returned it through Home Depot, who were extremely accommodating. We then ordered a 10,000watt Duromax duel fuel and it arrived in excellent condition. Works great!

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 I relied heavily on the reviews to buy and set up this generator so I am adding my own thoughts. ... I relied heavily on the reviews to buy and set up this generator so I am adding my own thoughts. It arrived at the store in good condition. No issues. One reviewer said to get a length of 1/2 inch clear flexible hose for putting in oil. Good advice. I clamped a 14 inch length of the hose to a funnel and it makes adding / changing oil a breeze. I took out the drain plug to make sure the oil pan was empty and then added 38 ounces of 10W30. Use high detergent. Another reviewer recommended the Sigmas Tek STZ10S battery from BatterySharks. I ordered one and it's perfect. The connectors on the generator are a little small for the bolt that comes with the battery. Ream out the connector with a Dremel grinder. Two minute job. It came a little under charged so I charged it before installation. I only used propane and don't intend to use gas except for an emergency. Runs great. You should not try to draw more than 20 amps from either of the pair of AC plugs, so I bought two 50 foot Rigid 12 gauge extension cords so I could draw power from both pairs of plugs at the same time. The cord is more flexible than some other brands and has lighted plug ends so you know when they are hot. I plugged my 30 watt RV connector into the generator and it easily powered everything including AC, microwave etc. So within days of getting it all ready we had a thunder storm and our power was out for two days. (Unbelievable right? But true). I have 4 propane tanks and had no problem. They say the gen is 80 decibels. It's more. I built a portable gen hut with plywood to keep it dry and reduce noise. It helped. We powered the frig, used the microwave, toaster, hot plate and ran a few lights. Didn't use a heater but I'm sure we could have. Plenty of power for our needs. Important lesson- I didn't check the oil in the first 24 hours. Mistake. The low-oil auto shut off kicked in gradually and the generator started running unevenly. I shut it down, added quite a bit of oil and it started right back up. So it uses oil. Check it often. When the power came back I changed the oil and tested it. Ran great. I sewed up a cover from a cloth painters drop cloth.

Set it up to run propane. started right away the first time I used it. Everything was working as expected. Then a few days later when I tried to use it for the second time, it started right away, but no electricity. Trouble shoot everything and could not find the cause of the problem. Contacted the 800 number for assistance and they could not help me diagnose the problem either. I was told that I needed to send it back for a service. I have had this for about two weeks now and I'm in the process of sending it back for repairs. If they can fix the problem and I run it afterwards for a while with no other issues, then my rating on this product might change. But for right now I can only give it two stars.
