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 do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA7000 in use

The A-iPower SUA7000

The A-iPower SUA7000's core is the 389 cc (13 hp) Senci OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 6,000W and a peak wattage of 7,000W.

Rated for 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a shower), the generator's starting mechanism relies on a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism.

Featuring a 7 gallons fuel tank, the SUA7000 can provide power for around 12 hours at 50% load on a full tank (with fuel consumption averaging 0.58 gallons per hour).

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 5 AC outlets:

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

Moreover, it comes equipped with 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy.

Thanks to its twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the SUA7000 is transfer switch ready, facilitating easy hookup to your breaker box to provide backup power for your home during blackouts.

Portability

Measuring L27.8 x W27.2 x H25.4 in, the classic open frame construction of the A-iPower SUA7000 provides stability while enabling convenient maintenance access to components and adequate air cooling. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Even at 195 lbs, the generator is categorized as 'portable,' suggesting its movability, although its weight impede its portability. Still, once it is on the ground, its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

Features

Panel of the A-iPower SUA7000

The SUA7000's control panel

With a digital data center integrated into its control panel, the SUA7000 provides real-time insights into the lifetime run hours, enabling easy monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator on the device will signal if its oil levels are insufficient.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the A-iPower SUA7000 features extra accessories: oil, RV adapter, battery charging cables and tool kit.

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).

  • With a dry weight of 195 lbs, the A-iPower SUA7000 sits comfortably within the expected weight range for devices generating 5500 to 6500 rated watts. Weight-conscious users may find the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 118 pounds.
  • Because this generator emits noise as low as 74 dBA, it can be considered to have a pretty average expected noise rating for a device of its power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU7000iS, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 52 dBA.
  • Among its devices with similar power, the SUA7000 offers one of the higher run times, running for around 12 hours at 50% load. For those prioritizing autonomy, the Predator 6500 could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching around 14.5 hours.
  • Run time is a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel tank capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary for a complete understanding. The generator burns fuel at a rate of around 0.58 GPH when running at a 50% load, which is consistent with the average fuel usage of models of comparable power output. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the A-iPower SUA7000L, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.36 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.

    Bought one of these earlier this year for potential outages at my home in North Pole, Alaska and I love it! Had an outage a few weeks back and as hoped, it powered our boiler, water pump, fridge, along with some lights/extras very well. Should have got a generator like this years ago!

    + PROS:
    • Is the perfect size with plenty of power to run the essentials like a boiler, water pump, and fridge for residential homes in cold weather areas like Alaska.
    - CONS:
    • The choke is a little hard to find in the dark, as it’s tiny and tucked under the frame etc. I added a small piece of rubber hose to my choke handle to lengthen it, making it much easier to grasp for nighttime outages etc.
    • Also, it would be great if there was a way to drain the fuel from the tank before putting into storage etc. I don’t like storing equipment inside my garage full of fuel.
