As the 3500 and the 4400 are both Predator 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 Predator 3500 compare to the Predator 4400.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 3500 W, the Predator 4400 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 3000 running watts of the Predator 3500. Moreover, compared to the 3500 starting watts of the 3500, the 4400 and its starting wattage of 4400 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When loaded to 25% of their max capacity, the 4400 offers a higher runtime on a full tank than the 3500: it can operate for up to 16 hours, whereas the 3500 offers a maximum runtime of 11 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 25% load of 0.2 GPH (gallon per hour), the 4400 is more fuel efficient than the Predator 3500 and its 0.24 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 (<5% for the Predator 3500 and <3% for the Predator 4400) and are therefore perfectly suitable to safely power your sensitive electronic devices.
  • Noise: There's an important difference in the emitted noise between these 2 generators. In fact, the 3500 produces as low as 57 dBA, but the 4400 is rated for a minimum dBA of 67.

Portability Comparison

  • Weight: Weighing 77 lbs, the 4400 is much lighter than the 99.2 lbs of the 3500.
  • Portability: As the 3500 benefits from a built-in set of wheels, it is easier to move it once on the ground than the 4400, because the latter doesn't have one. To the contrary of the 4400, the 3500 benefits from a double handle, to help you get a better grip anytime you wish to move your portable generator.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: These two devices can both be reliably started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism. However, the Predator 3500 also benefits from a convenient electric starter.
  • Outlets: With a total of 5 AC outlets, the 4400 offers more AC receptacles than the 3500, which has 3 AC outlets. Moreover, the 4400 has the advantage of featuring GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the 4400 does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. In addition, it is worth noting that they both only produce 120V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the 3500's and the 4400's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: The Predator 3500 offers a better insight into its power production than the Predator 4400, because it is equipped with a data center. Besides that, thanks to a fitted fuel gauge, the Predator 4400 provides instant visibility of the fuel level.
  • Technology: The Predator 4400 benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Secure technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
