Energizer's® EG8750 is designed to work as hard as you do. Featuring a variety of outlets and plenty of power this electric start unit produces up to 7000 running watts in both 120V AC and 120/240V AC outputs to power your house or jobsite. (source: Energizer (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Energizer EG8750

In summary, the Energizer EG8750 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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

Power & Run Time

The Energizer EG8750's core is the 420 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 7000W and a peak wattage of 8750W.

Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

With a fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons, the EG8750 may run for around 9.6 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.69 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 8 AC outlets:

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

This Energizer generator features an L5-30R receptacle, enabling an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. However, it is still not quite RV ready. Besides, because the EG8750 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

The Energizer EG8750 has a conventional, open frame design, of the following dimensions: L28.9 x W26 x H26 in, which offers support and allows it to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Since the generator weighs 192 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Energizer EG8750

The EG8750's control panel

Monitoring of the EG8750'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 the oil level is too low.

Thanks to a 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.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual, letting you start the generator quickly, the Energizer EG8750 also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, battery charger and oil.

Emissions

The Energizer EG8750 is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

The Energizer EG8750 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Energizer EG8750 compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • At a weight of 192 pounds, the Energizer EG8750 places in the expected weight range of the generators in the 6500-7500 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, with a dry weight of only 133 lbs.
  • Offering around 9.6 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the EG8750 is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Generac XC6500, as it provides around 14 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. Standing at an estimated 0.69 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, this generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI, with a fuel consumption of 0.38 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 6500-7500W generators, the Energizer EG8750 is on the average side of the price range.

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