Thanks to our patented CO Shield® technology, you can be sure that you and your family are protected from the dangers of carbon monoxide. Our CO Shield® sensor tests itself automatically and lasts up to a decade. If operated in inappropriate locations, the UL-recognized sensor will alert and shut off the generator automatically before dangerous levels of carbon monoxide accumulate. This indicates the unit should be moved to an open-air environment with plenty of circulation. This unit meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 requirements to ensure the highest level of safety and performance.
The convenient electric start includes a battery, plus Cold Start Technology ensures a quick start in cold weather.
Easily monitor power output and track maintenance intervals with Intelligauge, which allows you to keep track of voltage, frequency and run-time hours. Designed with a low oil shut-off sensor, this unit includes 1.2-quarts of 10W-30 oil.
Operate your Dual-Fuel generator right out of the box on gasoline or propane, and easily switch fuels with our patent pending fuel select dial that allows for safe switching between fuel sources.
Using gasoline, the 459cc Champion engine produces 10625 starting watts and 8500 running watts, and will run for 10 hours at 50% load when the 7.7-gallon fuel tank is full. It produces 9565 starting watts and 7650 running watts, and will run for 5 hours at 50% load when using a 20-pound propane tank. Also included is a 6.5-foot propane hose with a built-in regulator.
