The Sportsman Series Propane 6000-7000 Watt Portable Generator, Model GEN7000LP, can power common household appliances and power tools. This unit is equipped with four 120V outlets, a 12V DC outlet for battery charging, and a 120/240V outlet. Use this generator immediately with the recoil start or install a motorcycle battery (not included) to activate the electric start feature. A generator of this size is ideal for camping and running essential household appliances during power outages.
This generator is a real workhorse with great features for an affordable price. It boasts an engine run time of 8 hours at 50% on a common 20lb (gas grill type) cylinder of liquid propane (LP cylinder not included). A 5’ propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience (WC# 416490). The engine is surprisingly quiet; it runs at less than 80 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.

Recoil or Electric Start (battery not included, see manual for battery specs) What Will it Power?
: The 6000 running Watts of this generator can power all of your lights, with another appliance, or multiple household items at once. WARNING: this generator is not intended to power sensitive electronic equipment such as TVs, DVD players, or computers without the use of an appropriate line conditioner and/or surge protector (both not included).Note:
Even though this Model, GEN7000LP, has an overall rated wattage of 7000, do NOT attempt to draw more than 20 Amp from any TWO of the stacked 120V outlets. Doing so would damage this generator and void the warranty.
Your large appliances typically require 240 volt power and your lights or other small appliances will typically use 120 volt power. It is important to consider these differences when doing load calculations to decide how many watts and amps you will need in a generator. Remember: Watts / Volts = Amps.
