Product Overview

Engineered to be compact, lightweight and quiet, the new P 4500 inverter generator has a protective hard shell to safeguard the unit from dirt and debris, never-go-flat wheels and a telescoping handle to make moving it around an RV site a breeze. A convenient push-button electric start turns on the Briggs & Stratton 224 cc engine to deliver 4500 starting watts and 3700 running watts. Its multi-functional digital display panel allows operators to monitor power usage, fuel level and run time. 4 household 120-Volt outlets, one 120-Volt 30 Amp RV outlet and 2 USB adaptors offer the operator flexibility to power a combination of lights, kitchen appliances and smart devices. Innovative inverter technology automatically adjusts the engine speed to lower the noise level and reduce fuel consumption.

No where does it say "Proudly Made in America", nor does it mention "Proudly Assembled in America". This would lead One to believe it may be Asian?

Does this unit have the permanent magnet generator?

Asked by omar August 30, 2020

Answer

Yes, but remember the generator is only to power the inverter, produces a heavy load of 12volt DC to power the inverter that supplies very clean, very regulated 110v A.C. So no generated 110v , just inverted 110v ac. Very efficient, very clean.

Yes, it is protected by a 30 amp breaker.

is this unit also useful for residential and not just for camping?

Asked by bonicifus July 21, 2020

Answer

That depends on Your Definition of residential. Can you use it around the house, or work site, Yes! Food truck, Tailgating, Yes! In the event of a power outage, can it be used at home? Yes. (with reserve). First! It must be ran outdoors!!! PERIOD! Any internal combustion engine produces CARBON MONOXIDE! That can KILL! In that event, Run a heavy primary cord into the home. Use a splitter, for your important things. Running a Whole Home? Probably not. While 30 amps, like a camper, will power most of your needs, a homes Voltage input and Distribution set-up is different. Most homes have a 220/240v service. At the Breaker Box, is where this all changes. The 220 is physically split in half. A creative person could make One Half of the home usable. HOWEVER! THIS MAY BE ILLEGAL! AND HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BE VERY DANGEROUS OR EVEN DEADLY! An Old Saying... "If you don't know what you're doing, Don't"

I waited 3 months and over 800 hours of use before writing this 2nd review, ( the first was at 650 hours) and I can't say anything but good stuff about this generator! Its powerful, intensely feature loaded, easy to service, and has been 100% reliable from day one. It has been used to power our 24' camper while we work our 5 acre land for building. In drenching down pours, 100 degree heat, its handled it all. Runs FOREVER on its huge 3.5 gal tank. Highly recommended by a 50+ year generator user!!!

Fantastic generator
I waited to do this review until I had used it awhile. 3 months later and 650 hours of use I can honestly say that this is the best generator I have used, and I have used them for most of my 61 years. Our family radio communications business has used small portable Hondas since the 1960's in our service vans for solder irons, drills etc while in remote locations, so as a electromechanical Engineer, I have a lot of experience and knowledge in this area. I purchased this for its load capabilities, and it's long list of features, one of which is complete enclosure, as I was wanting a quiet unit, and boy is it quiet!! It also has a fantastic display assembly that includes a digital hour meter, power load meter and fuel status, all on the front panel. It has bright blue lights on the side panel for hook-up connections, and a fantastic electric start system that charges it's battery while running. My $3000 Honda of the same size has NONE of those features!!! And it's as quiet as my $3k Honda as well, for 1/3 the price!! Runs FOREVER on its huge 3.5 gallon tank. Only complaint; wish the wheels were bigger to make moving it around on our rough 5 acre property easier, but that's it!! No other complaints. And that's with over 650 hours of use as a reference for everyone looking at this one. Take it from a guy who has used generators since they've been around, well over 50 years, this is a well-thought out machine, especially for the money!!

The customer service was excellent. I had a mechanical problem with the first generator I purchased.customer service service instructed me how to return the unit and sent me a replacement. This new generator works wonderful and I love all the features and it suits my needs. I would highly recommend purchasing this generator from Home Depot. Home Depot stands buy its products and I always deal with them for my projects.

First, the battery is disconnected when it comes out of the box. So, you have to expose the battery and you'll see that the factory has capped its connections to preserve it until it's bought or used. So, connect that and you can use the electric start procedure. After solving that problem, the generator started quickly and ran as it should and all the outlets worked as advertised. It's light enough to move around fairly easily. It's quieter than I expected so, I very happy with it. I love that it's so portable.

We have really enjoyed the generator, very quiet and runs our camper just fine. My one complaint would be that it arrived with a dead battery, which was a little inconvenient. But otherwise, very happy.
