Over the following sections, you'll uncover its power characteristics, the selection of outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it includes.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA7000L in use

The A-iPower SUA7000L

The A-iPower SUA7000L's engine, 322 cc (9 hp) Senci SV320 OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 6,000W and reaches a peak wattage of 7,000W.

The generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism. It is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a shower).

Featuring a 4 gallons fuel tank, the SUA7000L can provide power for around 11 hours at 50% load on a full tank (with fuel consumption averaging 0.36 gallons per hour).

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the SUA7000L is not recommended due to its high THD (<23%).

Outlets

The control panel features 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 enabling simple battery charging for added ease.

Since it boasts a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the SUA7000L is engineered to be transfer switch ready, ensuring easy integration with your breaker box to provide backup power to your home during outages.

Portability

With its L24 x W23.3 x H21.8 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the A-iPower SUA7000L guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Even at 134 lbs, the generator is categorized as 'portable,' suggesting its movability, although its weight impede its portability. Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its wheel kit (⌀7") and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

The SUA7000L's control panel

Monitoring of the SUA7000L'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 serves to show you when the oil level is too low.

The built-in fuel gauge of the generator ensures simple and quick gas level assessments.

In terms of security, the generator features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), ensuring peace of mind during its use.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the A-iPower SUA7000L also is packed along with the following accessories: tool kit, battery charging cables and oil.

Product Video

The A-iPower SUA7000L versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA7000L compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • In terms of its weight, the A-iPower SUA7000L weighs merely 134 pounds, earning it a spot among the lighter generators within the 5500 to 6500 rated wattage category. If you are mindful of weight, the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO is among the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 118 pounds.
  • The generator's noise output, rated at 74 dBA, falls within the average range expected for devices in its power range. If you value reduced noise levels, the Honda EU7000iS could be worth considering. It's one of the quietest generators in its power range, rated at 52 dBA.
  • The SUA7000L, falls within the average autonomy range compared to generators of a roughly same power, with a run time of around 11 hours at a 50% load and a full tank. If prolonged run time is essential to your needs, you could consider the Predator 6500, which offers one of the highest autonomy among devices with similar power output, lasting around 14.5 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.36 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, this generator is among the most fuel-efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range.
