Product Overview

Great for running the RV while out on the road, or for keeping essential appliances going during a power outage, the Sportsman 4,000-Watt Dual Fuel Generator has the power and flexibility to handle the task. This generator runs on either unleaded gasoline or propane gas, so you can use whichever fuel is more easily available or affordable at the moment. With the Sportsman Dual Fuel Generator, you get the long-lasting, clean burning advantage of propane gas, plus the familiar and easy to find benefits of unleaded gasoline. With 4,000 peak watts and 3,500 rated watts the Sportsman Dual Fuel Generator is a powerful generator than can handle the needs of most contractors, homeowners and recreational activities. Equipped with four 120-Volt outlets, a single 120-Volt RV outlet, and a 12-Volt DC outlet for battery charging, this generator can handle almost everything you need for camping or tailgating. With a 50% load, the Sportsman 4,000-Watt Dual Fuel Generator can run for 10-hours on a full tank of gasoline (3.9 Gal.) and 12-hours with a full 20 lbs. LP cylinder (the common gas grill type, not included). A 5 ft. propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The 7 HP engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 69 Db. The Sportsman 4,000-Watt Dual Fuel Generator is ideal for anyone who needs affordable, flexible, and portable power. Unfortunately, this model cannot be converted to operate with natural gas.

I've looked at the schematics supplied on this site and see no inverter circuitry, only an auto-transformer. I would say it is falsely advertised as an inverter.

Hi Jr.....If you constantly have it at extreme running, some loss of oil will have to added. That is why it is stated in the operator's manual to check oil before each use.

DOESN'T MAKE ELECTRICITY
So ... With a hurricane in the gulf, we purchased this unit , stayed in the box in the shed for three days and the day before the Storm, unboxed it, filled it with oil, hooked up the propane and it fired right up. But.. Aren't they supposed too produce electricity? Customer support said "Your brushes are probably worn out" In four minutes??? So they sent us a new AVR (AUTOMATIC VOLTAGE REGULATOR) (A week after hurricane Laura was gone) Now .... It still DOESN'T work and I am a ASE CERTIFIED auto repair technician I can't imagine how thrilled your basic handyperson would be with this

Manufacturer went the cheap route on the gas lines, etc.
Purchased this model 4 years ago through HD. Kept it stored in a dry shed the entire time. Had no issues for the first two years using propane (Never used gasoline). Late last year had issues keeping it running without zip-tying the choke open (It was dark and raining, so I didn't troubleshoot). Went to use it today and it wouldn't start. Found multiple sections of the propane fuel line had cracked and fallen apart, as did the air line from the air filter into the choke. I also found the plastic spark plug boot had cracked and fallen apart. When it works it's great, but it's obvious the manufacturer went the cheap route on the gas lines, etc. It works, but be prepared to do an above average amount of service maintenance on this generator.

nice generator and works well but..........
it's meant for a rv. it only has 120v output which only runs half your breaker panel if connected to your home. it means extension cords throughout your home. other than that its a good price and it seems well built and nice for a campsite.

Just got it for $299 on sale so really happy about the purchase and price. I have the peace of mind that I’ll have power in an emergency. It’s easy to get set up and started. Runs smooth and powers as expected. My only negative comment is this. It’s rated at 69dBA but I rated it at 80-85 around three feet from motor and 100dBA next to engine. I would not be able to use at a camp site since it’s too load. Even if you could, at those decibels you’re not going to sleep well with it outside the tent. Should work great to power house appliances and our portable AC Unit. Even knowing the loudness, I would purchase for value and function.
