Asked by nitetrain November 16, 2020

Answer

Run time on propane would depend on the size of your supply tank. Propane, under load, consumes 10,000 BTU per hour for each horsepower. This would estimate 5-10 hours of run time at full to half load on a 20lb propane tank.

Weak metal
I bought this earlier this year and finally got around to putting it together. It started with a couple pulls. I shut it off and looked around for any leaks or anything. Then I found a bend in one of the supports. Cheap metal Is what it looks like to me. Haven't put a load on it yet. Will update once I run a load through it!

Very pleased, but wish it had a couple of important features. I've run it three times and I'm very pleased so far. I run it off propane and it fires right up. I'm able to power my whole house (>3000 sqft, 2xHVAC) without issue. I added wattage meters (above fuel selector) and a battery trickle-charging port (above battery). I would gladly have paid a bit more for those necessities.

Because of power outage all around us a while back, I decided to see about getting a generator. All stores in the area were (OUT OF STOCK) Ordered online. Came just a few days later. Hooked up propane to it with regulator/hose (included with generator). Have wired small breaker and outlets for refrigerator and deep freeze. Started the generator; plugged in refrigerator and deep freeze. Ran for about 45 minutes without a hiccup. Could not even tell the motor had a load on it. Will be adding area for permanent usage(like a small shed to sit in). This is temporary setup right now.

(What's this)
This Pulsar HD6580B portable generator is designed primarily for emergency power during outages, something that’s necessary here in central Florida. Going through an extended power outage following a hurricane without any backup generator is not something you’ll want to experience. It’s also portable enough to power 110 VAC power tools at job sites. I was unable to get the weight spec from the manufacturer, but it’s NOT a lightweight. It is available exclusively through Home Depot. It’s compact sized but has enough capacity to operate all the 110 VAC devices in most homes if properly connected to a circuit breaker box through a power transfer switch. You can use the 120 volt outlets and extension cords if you wish. Keep in mind that the maximum 6580 peak watts and 5500 running output power can only be achieved using gasoline. If you connect it to a liquid propane tank expect a maximum power output of 5,922 peak watts and 4,950 running watts. The tradeoff is longer and cleaner operation using LPG. It has a 5.2 gallon gasoline fuel tank that gives you up to 11.5-hours of continuous operation at half load. It is well equipped with nearly every conceivable accessary and warning device like a fuel shutoff valve, fuel drains, a 3 in 1 digital meter, low oil indicator, fuel level gauge, ground connection and low oil shutdown. It even has a 12 VDC trickle output to charge a battery even though it has a recoil starter (there is no electric starter). It is supplied with fold-down handles, never-flat wheels, metal feet, all hardware, 1 quart of oil, a funnel and a propane adapter hose. On the control panel here are four 120-volt 20 amp AC outlets, one 220-volt 30 amp NEMA twist-lock female outlet, and one 120 VAC 30 amp female RV outlet. The oil filler spout is typically in a difficult location. Everything is nicely labeled and easy to read, however the choke is labeled “Open and Closed” instead of “Choke and Running,” which can be confusing. As for operation, it easily started with two pulls of the starter cord and runs surprisingly quiet. As a matter of fact, it’s quieter than your average 2 HP lawn mower! I wanted to comment on a few of the current reviews that are posted on the Home Depot website supposedly about this generator. First, it DOES NOT have a battery or starter motor. It has a recoil manual pull starter. Second, I am not deaf, I’ve owned three other generators and live in central Florida so I’m painfully aware of all the local noisy generators in the area. This one is MUCH quieter than any other generator I’ve heard. In addition, a few reviews clearly state that the review was for a completely different model than this one. My review is accurate. It is a great value and I highly recommend this product, something I rarely state in my reviews.

(What's this)
Easy to assemble and set up for operation. All of the equipment with the exception of propane or gasoline is provided. I am in the process of putting in a subpanel with the circuits we need when we lose power possibly. If this is not done then you must open your main breaker and other breakers that may overload the generator. As I expected the KW outage of the generator is lower on propane 5500KW on gas and 4950 on propane so beware .Also there is a yellow warning sheet that is provided for shifting from one fuel source to the other I would strongly recommend that this warning sign be close to the generator when operating. I would recommend this generator for most single family homes especially here in Florida.

(What's this)
The best thing about this new generator is that it runs on propane. My old generator runs on gas. I find that storing gas in the generator or draining the gas after use to be problematic. While the generator is running the red 4 digit 7-segment display can be toggled to show four different read outs by pressing the tiny "MODE" at the bottom of the display. I weighed the generator with my hanging spring scale and it weighs 130 pounds. I like the sound that it makes when it runs on propane. It is very smooth. It was very easy to start after I read the instructions and turned on the choke. Looks like there is a mistake in the assembly instructions at the bottom of page 9, where it says "Attach the support leg using M8 screws (2) and nuts". The nuts are already welded to the frame, which is a very nice feature. The nuts are actually needed to install the handles as shown on page 10. I tested the generator with two 800 watt parabolic heaters and it performed very well. A nice product overall.

High Quality and Great Price
I did quite a bit of research when looking for a generator and this one was a great value. It started up immediately and seems really sturdy. Only time will tell how it holds up, but so far so good!

The Generator is fine - dealing with home depot is not so good - i bought this at like $1199.00 it went on sale for $849.00 the day before i recieved it, so i figured ok they will do the right thing and match the $849 price - WRONG they matched the price on the day i called of like $1149 and then the next week it was on sale again at the $849 price , I am quite upset in the fact that they did not do the right thing!!! I should have returned the generator and gone elseware! Buyer Beware.
