Zoom on the Energizer EG8750

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

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

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 Energizer EG8750's engine, 420 cc Energizer OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 7,000W and reaches a peak wattage of 8,750W.

Equipped with a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and an easy-to-use and reliable electric starter (battery included), this generator provides versatile starting capabilities.

With its 6.6 gallons fuel tank, the EG8750 can operate for around 9.6 hours at 50% load when fully fueled (with fuel usage averaging around 0.69 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 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, as the EG8750 holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

With its L28.9 x W26 x H26 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the Energizer EG8750 guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Even at 192 lbs, the generator is categorized as 'portable,' suggesting its movability, although its weight impede its portability. However, the constrained maneuverability is addressed with the assistance of its wheel kit and its folding handle, allowing for easy shifting once the generator is placed on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Energizer EG8750

The EG8750's control panel

The EG8750's control panel is equipped with a digital data center, furnishing detailed information on the lifetime run hours for you to easily track its activity and status.

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

The generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

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.

Alongside the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) for quick setup, the Energizer EG8750 is bundled with additional accessories: battery charger, tool kit and oil.

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 192 lbs dry, the Energizer EG8750 is consistent with the standard weight profile for devices ranging from 6500 to 7500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, weighing just 133 pounds.
  • The EG8750, offering a run time of around 9.6 hours with a full tank at a 50% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Predator 9000, as it provides around 13 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. The generator utilizes approximately 0.69 GPH of gasoline at a 50% load, placing it within the typical range of fuel consumption seen in products of comparable wattage. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Energizer eZV7500, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.45 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.
