about this item

The Sportsman Propane 4000 Watt CARB Approved Portable Generator can power common household appliances and power tools. RV ready, it is equipped with one 120V RV outlet, two 120 volt outlets and a 12 volt DC outlet for battery charging. A generator of this size is ideal for small camping or tailgating parties or to have on hand in case you need some temporary power in an emergency situation.
It has a 7HP 4-Stroke OHV Recoil Start engine. Its affordable but well thought out with full featured options such as Automatic Low Oil Shutdown and Automatic Voltage Regulator. It boasts an engine run time of 10 hours at 50% on a common 20Lb (gas grill type) cylinder (LPG cylinder not included). A 5 foot propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 68 Db. This is a great generator for anyone who needs affordable power.
Propane has several distinct advantages over gasoline generators. Propane burns cleaner than gas engines. Carbon monoxide emissions run up to 40% lower. Propane will not degrade, so you can keep several propane tanks on hand for emergencies and store them for an unlimited amount of time. Since this generator runs on propane you never have to worry about the fuel going bad or having the carburetor getting fouled due to degenerated gasoline - a common problem with gasoline powered small engines. Unfortunately, this model cannot be converted to operate with natural gas.

We bought this a few days before hurricane Irma and paid extra to have it shipped overnight. When the package arrived I quickly unboxed it to test it out. Put oil in and went to attach the LP tank and found I was missing the regulator hose. I called Buffalo tools at 9:00am est and no one picked up. ...  see moreof Hurrican Finn's review

    Day 3 without electricity due to Irma and this little generator has been keeping us going. Refrigerator, fan, lights and tv no problem. To use a microwave or coffee pot, reduce some usage to be on the safe side. 30 lb. tank lasts 20 hours.  see moreof Deen's review
