Zoom on the Firman H03652

In summary, the Firman H03652 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers looking for even more independence
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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 Firman H03652 in use

The Firman H03652

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Firman H03652 delivers 120V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 3650W and a peak wattage of 4550W. When propane-powered, it has 3300 rated watts and 4100 peak watts.

At a noise rating of 67 dBA (less noisy than an office), the generator is started via a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

The running time of the H03652, with its 5 gallons fuel capacity, can reach around 14 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.36 GPH). With propane, it can reach around 11 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.43 GPH).

The quite high THD (<25%) of the H03652 makes it unsuitable for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 4 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

This Firman generator is RV Ready, as it features a TT-30R receptacle (TT stands for 'Travel Trailer').

Portability

The Firman H03652 has the following dimensions: L25.7 x W21.8 x H21.6 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Since the generator weighs 113 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 (⌀8") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Firman H03652

The H03652's control panel

The H03652's status and activity may be monitored conveniently via the control panel, as it features a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

The fuel level of the generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

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.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Firman H03652 also is packed along with the following accessories: propane hose, funnel, tool kit and oil.

Emissions

The Firman H03652 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used in forested areas.

The Firman H03652 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Firman H03652 compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • At a weight of 113 pounds, the Firman H03652 places in the expected weight range of the dual fuel generators in the 3500-4500 rated wattage range. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the WEN DF402iX, standing at just 66.1 lbs.
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its type and power range, rated at 67 dBA. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 52 dBA.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of around 14 hours at 50% load, the H03652 benefits from a higher run time than many dual fuel generators of a similar output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, reaching around 15 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. Standing at an estimated 0.36 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 are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.23 GPH, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF is a device you could look out for.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Firman H03652 vs Firman H03651.

Can the Firman H03652 dual fuel model be fitted to use natural gas? (Asked January 20, 2020)

Firman doesn't seem to have an official natural gas conversion kit. You could have a look at this article: https://www.propane101.com/lpgasapplianceconversions.htm. Needless to say, without an official conversion kit, such conversion would immediately void any warranty you may have.

    I purchased the Firman on 8/23/20 and recd it 9/3/20. Well packaged with only having to attach sturdy wheel and front rubber ft. Easily pulled to back yard by my small pool shed. Easy to ck oil and add oil. Gas ready right on top.
    I wanted to run on propane tanks as they are easy to store & last two yrs or more without spoiling. It Was HARD to start comparing to my son’s Champion.
    His pills by 2nd pull. This takes two pulls on choke, then at least 4-5 pulls to get it going on “run“ . After running though, it was nice and smooth for the 5 hours with the light load that the instructions said to use during 5 hrs break in period. I shut her down and put it away. Negative- the plastic choke lever is cheaply done. It seems off center from the “choke” & “Run” markings. I will call “services” about this. I like the meter. I can see Volts-Amps- total hrs run – Gas Fuel Guage is a Nice item too. I live in Texas and our Power goes out in heavy Tropical Storms Hurricanes. My Briggs & Stratton lasted from KY2 1999-2000 until last summer but I kept holding off until last minute before ordering this Firman. (Lucked out and the hurricane struck Lake Charles,La. instead.)
    I made it thur Ike and Harvey with a couple of trees down and 11 days without power) Hope this review helps.

    + PROS:
    • Good price with Military Discount for a portable Generator with features that can run two refrig. At one time.
    • And good running time if 14 hrs gas.
    • Hope the propane will be 10 hrs on 20 lb tank.
    - CONS:
    • Cheap plastic choke lever and hard starting pull. Also, it won’t run on Propane tank if small acid-lead battery is low or dead! But, manual does state it would run on Gas with no battery.
