As the H08053 and the P08004 are both Firman generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Firman H08053 compare to the Firman P08004.

  • Fuel: The Firman H08053 is a dual fuel generator. Thus, it has the advantage of being able to run either on gasoline or propane, whereas the other generator only runs on gasoline.
  • Power: As both the Firman H08053 and the Firman P08004 share the same running wattage of 8,000W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (10,000 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: At a 50% load, these 2 portable generators benefit from the same approximate runtime on a full tank. Therefore, regardless of the model, you'll be able to enjoy power availability for around 12 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: Keeping the aforementioned load in mind (i.e. 50%), these 2 generators will burn approximately 0.67 gallon of gasoline every hour.
  • THD: Neither the Firman H08053 nor the Firman P08004 has a THD low enough to allow you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (both <25%).
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 74 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: With a weight of 210.3 lbs, the P08004 is slightly less heavy than the H08053 (which weighs 212 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their maneuverability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter. The Firman P08004 offers another layer of convenience, as it can be remotely started.
  • Outlets: The H08053 and the P08004 both offer 5 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. In addition, it is worth noting that they can both produce either 120 or 240V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the H08053's and the P08004's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
