Excellent Deal

Purchased a new travel trailer last spring and needed a new generator to go with it. So far I have only ran it on gasoline rather than propane but I am more than happy. I can run both my AC and microwave at the same time although I only did it as a test. My 6 year old son can start the machine in two pulls even when it was only 22 degrees in the mountains. There is a burn in period I read about someplace for the generator. I actually ran mine for about 10 hours and changed the oil before putting it under load. This is not a quiet machine but I don't camp in campgrounds so it is not a problem for me. For the price, I do not think you will find a better machine. I purchased the 4 year plan just in case because even after $40.00 for the warranty it was still a better price than any of the competitors.


Best deal ever

I havent had to use this yet but i did try it out a few times....really easy to switch from gas to lp ..they give you the connector hose...hope i never havve to REALLY use it..but it has never not started each time i use it. who new


Sportsman Dual Fual 4000W generator.

Shopped for a long time. Looked at the DuroMax and found this Sportsman was available. Dual Fuel, plan to run it on Propane and never put Gas into it if I can. This is not a BONDED NEUTRAL generator. Meaning the ground and neutral wires are NOT connected as it is in your house wiring. Sportsman's hot line recommends at least a 2 foot ground rod. Added Oil and propane. Started in 3 pulls. Currently I run it an hour or so a day while breaking-in. After that I'll change the oil after 10 hours and wait for my first outage. Sportsman's hot line recommends 20 hours then change the oil.


Like The Dual Fuel

I was pleased the unit arrived a day early and FedX must of handled it with kid gloves as no damage to shipping box, likewise no damage to MFG box. The unit had heavy form fitting Styrofoam so unit could not move around, must of read older reviews. Bought 10W30 added 18.5 oz checked dipstick measured 1/2 above min. will top off after next use. Hooked up 30# RV propane bottle only minor problem was some burs in the brass generator connector, so had trouble hooking hose to gen. Got brass wire battery terminal brush out of my tool kit and cleaned up brass fitting, hand tightened no further problem. Turned on propane tank, closed choke, started second pull, adjusted choke till running smooth 30 seconds, ran for 5 min, shut down by closing bottle shut off power when stopped. Restarted at 5th wheel 1/2 choke 1st pull, ran 13,500 A/C unit :30 min started cooling camper, fits on furniture dolly for ease of moving around, far more quiet than old set, just a hum inside w/windows closed and what a good price.


Great Value

Lasted all day on one propane tank. Did exactly what I needed it for. Will be able to use it for years to come.
