Description

The A-iPower 9000E provides 9,000 watts of starting power and 7,250 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 420cc/14hp OHV engine and combined with an, efficient high-output alternator designed and manufactured by Senci, this unit delivers greater peak wattage when starting motor-driven tools and appliances.

Zoom on the A-iPower SUA9000E

In a nutshell, the A-iPower SUA9000E is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device.

Power & Run Time

The A-iPower SUA9000E houses a 420 cc (14 hp) A-iPower OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120/240V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 7,250W along with a peak wattage of 9,000W.

With a noise rating of 76 dBA (less noisy than a dishwasher), the generator features a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism, but also a convenient and efficient electric starter (battery included).

The SUA9000E's fuel tank, with a capacity of 7 gallons, supports uninterrupted operation for around 8.5 hours at 50% load when fully fueled (fuel consumption at an estimated 0.82 gallons per hour).

Outlets

The control panel features the following 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

Moreover, it boasts 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle enabling simple battery charging for added ease.

This A-iPower generator isn't quite RV Ready, but it features an L5-30R receptacle, allowing a simple RV connection through an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, with its twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the SUA9000E is configured to be transfer switch ready, allowing straightforward connection to your breaker box to supply backup power to your home during outages.

Portability

At L27.5 x W26 x H26 in, the standard open frame design of the A-iPower SUA9000E delivers stability alongside easy maintenance access to components and good air cooling. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Even at 201.7 lbs, the generator is categorized as 'portable,' suggesting its movability, although its weight impede its portability. Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit (⌀9") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

The SUA9000E's control panel

One of the many SUA9000E's features is the digital data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the lifetime run hours and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

In addition to this info, the generator's light indicator provides visual feedback when the oil level is too low.

Thanks to its built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently, and easily check the gas level at a glance.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the A-iPower SUA9000E also comes with some accessories: battery charging cables, oil and tool kit are included.

Product Video

The A-iPower SUA9000E versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the A-iPower SUA9000E compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 201.7 pounds, the A-iPower SUA9000E finds itself in the expected weight range for generators able to produce between 6500 and 7500 rated watts. If weight is an important consideration for you, the Sportsman GEN85KIDF stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 133 pounds.
  • If compared to generators capable of producing a similar running wattage, this generator with a lowest emitted noise of 76 dBA can be considered somewhat noisy. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Powerhorse 7500i with only 55 dBA.
  • The SUA9000E's autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its power range, as it reaches only around 8.5 hours at 50% load on a full tank. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Predator 9000, with around 13 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. Compared to similar devices, this generator is less fuel-efficient than most: it burns around 0.82 gallons of gasoline per hour at a 50% load. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Energizer eZV7500. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.45 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 6500-7500W generators, the A-iPower SUA9000E is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
