Can the unit be used above 4500 ft sea level

Asked by ART March 27, 2021
1
Answer

Hello Art, Thanks for your question on the RYOBI 4000-Watt Gasoline Powered Digital Inverter Generator model RYi4022X. Your engine is configured for operation below altitudes of 2,000 feet for production number 099930628, or 3,000 feet for 099930627 at the factory. Your engine must be reconfigured for operation above the preconfigured altitude. Operating the engine with the wrong engine configuration at a given altitude may increase its emissions, decrease fuel efficiency, degrade performance, and cause irreversible damage. Engines configured for high altitude operation cannot be operated in standard altitude conditions. A qualified service center should ensure that your engine is properly configured for your location. I hope this information is helpful. If you need further assistance, please contact RYOBI Product Support directly at 1-800-860-4050, Monday thru Friday, 9am to 6pm EST. Thanks for contacting RYOBI! - Eve

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] As I live in Texas last week we have snow, no electricity and no water. So we are prepared for stormy weather right now!! It has carbon monoxide shutdown!!!

loudest inverter on the planet
This inverter is LOUD. But it does seem to generate the power it says it does. I was able to run a fridge, heater, 75 inch tv, and all the network gear in my home for around 30 hours. The generator seems to kind of “miss” when in its auto idle mode and the fuel hose has started to wear a divit in it where Ryobi has a clamp “securing” it in place. Hose would need repair before its used again so im on the fence as to if ill keep it or not. But it seems to be a good price for a 4kw inverter generator.

Essential
Bought this for a camper but decided to wire it up into the breaker panel at home for emergencies. Was able to power a portable heat pump unit, tower space heater, fridge/freezer, tv, xbox and various lights and plugs for charging phones throughout the house all at the same time. Granted, we were riding the overload switch and it did trip a couple times but for a small generator like this, I cant ask for any more. Used almost two tanks of fuel in a 20 hour time span

Easy to start and reliable!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is the first generator I have ever purchased and am very happy with it. I bought it in case of a power failure to power my refrigerator, freezer, and a couple of more small appliances. I tested it and confirmed it will easily handle the load, so I am confident that we can handle a power outage for a few days if necessary. It starts easily and is quieter than a gas lawnmower. I serviced it for the winter by running it dry, and then draining the carburetor bowl (easy), and even disconnected the fuel line temporarily to make sure nothing was left in the tank. Changing the oil was very easy - it drains thru an extension to reduce spilling - then 18 ounces of oil to refill the reservoir. I removed the spark plug and squirted motor oil inside as per the owner's manual. One minor thing to mention - make sure the locking pin on the handle stays fully engaged when you are moving it - mine slipped out partially and bent one of the brackets.

Plus has good watts, great price, and easy to use. Looking forward in the future to maje a change for solar. Just wishing you guys produce some solar panels and equipments.

Excellent Generator
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I always want to have a tool like this because I had many black out in a place I lived before so I can tell you that is a great buying. It works excellent and very easy to assemble. Thanks Ryobi for that

Up and Running!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this when we realized the utility crew wouldn't have power restored until midnight. I've been meaning to buy an inverter generator, and had been looking at models with a bunch of bells and whistles, duel fuel, push button start, etc. Models like that cost $1,000 or more, this Ryobi does a great job for about half that cost. I don't mind pulling a coil start, especially when it starts up on the first tug like this did. Right now it's chugging away outside and we're running the refrigerator and some electronics with it, on one outlet. I'm going to connect the TV and satellite dish using the other outlet. As far as "quiet operation" goes, it's not as loud as a lawn mower, but it's not really quiet. It's a running motor, it makes noise. Easy to set up with clear assembly and first time instructions. Wheels need to be attached, easy. Front legs need to be attached, easy. All you need are a couple of small adjustable wrenches.

Very nice generator. I ran 2 refrigerators And a sump pump for hours during a power outage with no problem. Still had room for more. The only thing I can say about it is it is a little noisy.

I bought this generator because of the price and weight. it's big enough to run my fridge, freezer, tv, and some lights when the power goes out. It is fairly qwiet and was easy to assemble. I've only had this for 2 mounths so I can't say alot about it but I have a ryobi 4 stroke weed wacker for over 12 years and that still suns great so I'm hopping this will last just as long. I have all kinds of ryobi tools and would recommend all of them. wish it had a 12 volt out put but it wasen't a deal braker for me. I would probly give it 5 stars if and when I have it longer.

This inverter generator is a great one. I'm replacing with it a Generac IX2000 that worked for only 2 years. When you open the box all you have to do is to install the wheels and the front shoes, to fill the motor oil (all included in the box) and to fill the 3.2 gals of gasoline tank. Then it is going to run for 12 hours approx. with a reasonable low level of noise. I'm so happy with this purchase and ready for the next hurricane season.
