Using gasoline, the 389cc Champion engine produces 6900 starting watts and 5500 running watts, and will run for 10 hours at 50% load when the 6.1-gallon fuel tank is full. When using a 20-pound propane tank, it produces 6250 starting watts and 5000 running watts, and will run for 6.5 hours at 50% load. Also included is a 3.3-foot propane hose with a built-in regulator.

With a noise level of 74 dBA from 23 feet, which is a bit louder than a vacuum, this machine features Cold Start Technology to ensure a quick start in cold weather.

The Volt Guard™ built-in surge protector prevents overloads and keeps your equipment safe from spikes in voltage, while the Intelligauge monitors voltage, frequency and operating hours.
