The Sportsman Dual Fuel Generators is great for running the RV while out on the road, or for keeping essential appliances going during a power outage. It has the power and flexibility to handle the task. I particularly like this generator because it runs on either unleaded gasoline or propane gas. Finally, I can use whichever fuel is more easily available or affordable at the moment. With this generator, I get the long lasting, clean burning advantage of propane gas. Plus the familiar and easy to find benefits of unleaded gasoline.
With 9000 peak watts and 7500 rated watts, the Sportsman Generator can handle the needs of most contractors. Plus homeowners love it when they use it for recreational activities. It is equipped with four 120 volt outlets, one 120/240V twist lock outlet, and a single 120V RV outlet, this generator can run just about anything. Use the generator right out of the box with the recoil start or install a motorcycle battery (not included) to activate the electric start feature.
The Sportsman Dual Fuel Generator boasts an engine run time of 10 hours at 50% load on 8 gallons of unleaded gas. Or it runs 5 hours at 50% load on a common 20Lb (gas grill type) cylinder. (LPG cylinder is not included). I love how quiet the 15 HP engine is, as it runs at less than 80 Db with no load. I recommend this Dual Fuel Generator because it is ideal if you need affordable, flexible, and portable power. Unfortunately, this model cannot be converted to operate with natural gas.
Finally, just remember that regular maintenance is crucial for optimal generator performance. I always read and follow the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule. This includes oil changes, filter replacements, and general inspections. This helps my generator last longer! Also, I want to emphasize that you must place it outdoors in a well-ventilated area. Position it away from doors, windows, and vents to prevent carbon monoxide buildup. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding fueling, grounding, and maintenance. Use heavy-duty extension cords designed for generator use and avoid overloading them.
