Description

The A-iPower SUA7000 provides 7,000 watts of starting power and 6,000 watts of running power. It’s well-suited for the construction job site or as backup power for your home during emergencies. Powered by an A-iPower 389cc/13hp OHV engine and combined with an efficient high output alternator designed and manufactured by Senci for greater peak wattage when starting motor driven tools and appliances. The generator features an easy-to-reach, ergonomically-angled compact control panel, which conveniently provides easy, user-friendly access and visibility to the panel.

Zoom on the A-iPower SUA7000

In a nutshell, the A-iPower SUA7000 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA7000 in use

The A-iPower SUA7000

The A-iPower SUA7000's design includes a gasoline-fueled 389 cc (13 hp) Senci OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 6000W and also a peak wattage of 7000W.

The generator is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner). Its starting mechanism is based on a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

With a full tank, the SUA7000 can operate for around 12 hours at 50% load (fuel consumption around 0.58 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 7 gallons.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

Furthermore, it has 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

Because the SUA7000 is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

With its dimensions of L27.8 x W27.2 x H25.4 in, the conventional, open frame design of the A-iPower SUA7000 offers stability and allows the generator to be raised above ground level. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 195 pounds. Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA7000

The SUA7000's control panel

Monitoring of the SUA7000's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours and is one of the features of its control panel.

In addition to this info, a light indicator allows you to instantly see if its oil levels are insufficient.

The fuel level of the generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the A-iPower SUA7000's package also includes these accessories: oil, RV adapter, tool kit and battery charging cables.

Emissions

The A-iPower SUA7000 is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The A-iPower SUA7000 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA7000 compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • As its weight is 195 pounds, the A-iPower SUA7000 falls in the expected weight range of the devices in the 5500-6500 rated wattage category. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Pulsar G65BN, with a dry weight of just 126 pounds.
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its power range, rated at 74 dBA. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Honda EU7000iS. With just 52 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • The SUA7000 provides a higher run time than similarly powerful devices, reaching around 12 hours at 50% load. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse WGen5500, reaching around 15 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. This generator has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.58 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.36 GPH, the A-iPower SUA7000L is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 5500-6500W generators, the A-iPower SUA7000 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
