As the W03081 and the W03082 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 W03081 compare to the Firman W03082.

  • Power: As both the Firman W03081 and the Firman W03082 share the same running wattage of 3000W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (3300 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the W03081 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the W03082: it can operate for up to 10 hours, whereas the W03082 offers a maximum runtime of 9 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.18 GPH (gallon per hour), the Firman W03081 is more fuel efficient than the W03082 and its 0.2 GPH. The former's operation will therefore cost less in terms of the money spent on gasoline. Inverter generators like these 2 are of the most fuel efficient (and quiet) type.
  • THD: Both generators offer a low THD (<3% for the Firman W03081 and <3% for the Firman W03082) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 58 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 84 lbs, the W03081 is slightly less heavy than the W03082 (which weighs 90 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While these two devices can both start thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, the Firman W03082 has the advantage of also being able to get running via a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: The W03081 and the W03082 both offer 3 AC outlets. None of them feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the W03081's and the W03082's product pages.
  • Data Center: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output.
