Questions & Answers

The picture shows a 120 volt 50 amp receptacle. The receptacle has 4 prongs. Are you sure this is not a 240/120v plug?

The 4 prongs indicate to me that it has 2 hots, 1 neutral, and 1 ground. It also has 2 reset buttons beside it.
Asked by: mitch
It is 120V only. There is a 30A 240V outlet as well.

Is this transfer switch ready?

Is this transfer switch ready?
Asked by: Chite68
Chite68. There are NEC and UL certified transfer switch products available in the market place that offer an outdoor receptacle and main disconnect where the portable generator can be plugged into and supply back-up power. All applicable electrical codes are highly recommended to be followed when installing a transfer switch. Consult with a certified electrician first before making any changes to an electrical system. Consider all state and local utility and electric codes when choosing the correct transfer switch product. I would recommend that the location of the generator be in compliance with state and local electric codes as well to address concerns of carbon monoxide being introduced into living spaces. CO2 is an order-less gas that can cause serious injury and or death to persons and or animals if exposed to toxic levels. I hope this helps answer your question.

Simpson 8,300-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.

The Simpson 8,300-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator was well packed and the assembly was quick and easy. After unpacking I install the included oil and added gas then on a couple of pulls on the rip cord it started right up and I am sure that after adding a battery for the electric start it will be even easier to start. This is quieter than I expected considering the 14.5 HP motor and the whole thing is protected by a steel cage with a folding handle. This is heavy so it will take a couple of people if you need to load on and off of a truck but the handle and no flat wheels make rolling it around very easy. I have not had a power outage to fully test this out but it does not even seem to notice the circular saw and other tools I have tried out with this generator, I would recommend this to all.

This is fortunate because the manual does not give any specifics on what type of starting battery would work. The lack of battery information is the only negative thing about this generator. I have been using it as a primary power supply at a job site. I have run saws, sanders, and even an electric chainsaw without any problems. It is fairly quiet. I think my lawn mower is a little louder. Set up is easy; just bolt on the wheels and put in oil and fuel. It started on the very first pull.

My old generator wasn't quite big enough for everything I needed so I figured why not get more than I needed to have some room for growth. Set up was simple and oil was included in the package, I did have to go buy a battery to use the electric start but the pull start worked just fine until then. I tried out my stick and mig welders and had no issue with power draw. The real test was my plasma cutter and it was so nice not to have it randomly stop from power fluctuations. I expected it to be loud since it is such large generator but it comes with a decent sized muffler, not that I want to stand next to it all day without hearing protection but ear plugs were fine. If you need to pick this up I recommend a couple of friends or a piece of equipment do it for you, it is not small or light.

This generator is all self contained and mounted on a wheeled cart for easy movement. I have not had it connected at this time until I can have some electrical changes made to my home. Since we are nearing the end of hurricane season, I plan to have it operational by the next storm season. I like the fact of the portability of the unit. It can easily be stored in the garage or other enclosed location when not in use. It has enough power to provide me with lighting, cooling, cooking and refrigeration in an emergency.

The Simpson 8300 watt portable generator is a powerful and solidly built unit. I especially like the steel tubes that protect the engine and generator. My old generator did not have this and was damaged when a 2x8 was accidentally dropped on it. One annoying problem is the "Electric Start" feature of this generator. They provide a steel battery holder and the necessary cables but no battery. OK, so I looked to find out what battery is needed and where to buy one. No luck, I couldn't find anything in their manual so I filled out a form on the Simpson's customer support website. That was a week ago and I have yet to receive anything from them. Not happy about that.

The Simpson 8,300-Watt Gasoline Powered Electric Start Portable Generator Is a nice generator. It was very easy to assemble and the instructions are easy to read. After assembly I added the included oil and gas and 1st pull it started right up. It does NOT come with a battery but after reading some of the questions and after some research I found a battery that fit. It starts easy, runs good and is pretty quiet. Overall so far it is a great generator.

You're rebuilding an old house and the wires are either gone or so old that they can't be used. The power company can provide temp power, but that takes weeks and requires expensive equipment and permits. Plus, even if they do let you hook up to the grid, you only get 20Amps or maybe 2000W ... enough for a single grinder. That's were this piece of equipment saves the day. While most folks use it for backup power (and that's a very good idea), we use it for primary power on the job site and it works great. You get three or four tools at once, maybe a compressor and certainly portable tool battery chargers. The electric start feature is nice, but not really needed. You do want to take care of your gear. Replace the oil, plugs and filter on schedule. Don't mess that up and you'll have years of good service.

When the winds start blowing, especially in the fall and spring it's not uncommon to have a tree or branch take out a power line and then the waiting starts. That's when having a generator, especially a big generator comes in handy. At 8.3 KW this generator has the capacity to run multiple circuits simultaneously, including big appliances like the refrigerator, microwave and some lights, TV and wifi! It's gas powered, and features an electric start, which will require you to buy a battery, because this big boy doesn't come with one. That' not a deal killer because it has a pull start, and it started easily. I hadn't found a battery yet, but the manufacturer has the specs on their web site. https://4d5snn19aurd29kiq921oobt-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/Battery-Specification.pdf It has a bunch cf outlets to provide power, including 2 20A, 120 VAC duplex outlets, like the kind you usually find in your kitchen, a 30A 120/240 VAC outlet and a 50A 120/240 VAC outlet. All those outlets are protected by circuit breakers on the control panel. This generator holds over 6 gallons of gas. Thankfully I haven't had to find out how long 6 gallons will last. The manufacturer warns about using gas with more than 10% ethanol, so be careful. This generator is HEAVY! I thought I would be able to store it in the basement and pull it out when needed, but it's too heavy. The other thing is this is not quiet, so you will hear this generator, especially when it's powering several circuits. That's the last thing, to really get the most out of this generator you should get a transfer switch, installed. A transfer switch will let you power several circuits in your house without having to string extension cords, which can be dangerous for a few reasons. A manual switch installed was quoted to me by an electrician for $650.00, but the piece of mind knowing I won't be tossing out spoiled groceries from the frig after an extended power outage is worth it.
