Customer Questions & Answers

Can I use a full sysnthetic 5W-30 Mobil1 (Car engine motor oil). Oil that came with generator is 10 w 30 and designed for 4 cycle engine.

Also, where can I get a gasoline without ethanol?
Asked by: OOTRA
I would recommend using a non synthetic oil for the first 30 hours of operation before switching to a full synthetic. The mfg also recommends breaking in the generator for 30 hours before placing full load draws on the generator. They also recommend changing out the provided oil after 20 hours of use. I changed mine out after 10 hours to a non synthetic. After 30 hours I will consider a full synthetic. Hope this helps... We have several options for non ethanol fuel where I live. All are premium non ethanol fuel. We have Cenex stores that carry it and some Conoco stations. That is a good choice, that is what I use on all my small engines..

Is it possible to switch to propane fuel? What is the cost? Can it be made to run both propane and gasoline?

Asked by: racyt
To switch to propane fuel, you would need to change so many components (if they are even available) that it would be more cost effective to sell your generator and buy one that was specifically designed to run on both propane and gasoline.

Page 21, of the operation manual, item 4 says that the 120/240-Volt, 30-Amp Twist Lock Outlet (NEMA 14-30R): Outlet can supply either 120V or 240V output. How does one select 120v or 240v and what protection is there to prevent the wrong voltage from being used?
Asked by: David
Outlets are 120 twist lock cable goes to separate service panel which disburses power .

7,500-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator with Battery is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 189.

The unit comes with everything you need and started on the first push of the electronic ignition. I have yet to use the generator in an emergency, but I tested it out and it completely powered my 2,400 sq. ft. house (furnace, well pump, appliances, lights, etc...). Naturally, you have ease into turning on all fuses to balance out the starting watts. Once the furnace and well pump were up and running, the unit powered the rest of the house without issue. The amount of starting and running watts is perfect for our size home. Great, reputable brand and less expensive than some of those major brands.

A bit of confusion to hook up starter leads but it was running within twenty minutes of opening the box. RPM does not govern down so this adds to the noise level. Weight is considerable but the dolly frame makes it easy. Power has yet to be maxed out but I don't have any doubts. The electric start is especially nice!

I did research this machine for 3 months and found out that is the best one.

The product was great, but was returned to get a larger 10,000 watt generator. If the furnace and sump pump came on at the same time, the 7500 Watt generator would pop a fuse and need to be reset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy Excellent product and good price. Easy setup and easy to move. But too heavy for one person to lift. Only negative is that it was much louder than I expected from other's reviews.

I have bought two the second as a back up just in case. The first detonated the engine at a little over 900 hrs. So I dropped in the second generator. The oil was the recommended 10-30 changed every 20 hours. Failure wasn't oil related the governor came apart and blew the can gear through the crankcase. Engine 500.00+ and not rebuildable. Warranty is not cost effective as no warranty shop near by need to ship into to factory, they evaluate then if not warranted you have to ship back or let them keep unit. Check for a authorized warranty shop close by.

It was easy to set up wheels and hand grips. I filled it with provided oil and gas. It started and ran noticable more quiet then my older genrac. The battery came charged and the gen start with a quick push of the start button. The reason I bought this unit was i wanted to have electric start and was hoping for some a little quieter then my older generator. Im glad i bought this model . Its set up in my shed and feeds into its own 12 breaker panel im ready for a blizzard and not worried about trying to pull start it during a storm in the dark when its 20 something degrees out.

I researched many portable generators before I purchased this one, I wanted something that would run a 220 a/c window unit, 110 a/c window unit, refrigerator, TV, stereo and internet, 4 ceiling fans and every light in the house. I hooked this generator up to the Gen. Disconnect on the house and it more than handled the load even with the a/c units cycling on and off. I have only used this generator once for a half hour so I cant comment on the customer service or the reliability of this unit and I hope I don't have to. Assembly was very easy. So far no complaints and I am very satisfied.
