Description

The FIRMAN W03083 Inverter generator features 3300 starting watts and 3000 running watts. Power is supplied by our Max Pro Series 171cc FIRMAN engine which runs cool and efficient thanks to its Phoenix Fat Head Block. Our Whisper Series muffler keeps the W03083 running a quiet 58 decibels – well below the standards set by the National Parks Service, and our spark arrester has been approved by the USDA Forest Service. The 1.8-gallon fuel capacity provides a whopping 9 hours of run time. Starting is as simple as the push of a button on the remote start key fob from up to 168 feet away.

Power & Run Time

The Firman W03083 in use

The Firman W03083

Firman W03083 is equipped with a 171 cc Firman Max-Pro Series OHV 4-stroke engine, running on gasoline and providing 120V, boasting a running wattage of 3,000W alongside a starting wattage of 3,300W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (Firman parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

Featuring a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than rainfall), the inverter generator is equipped with both a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism and a user-friendly and efficient electric starter (battery included) for starting. To increase convenience, the W03083 offers remote starting functionality, allowing for easy operation from a distance (key fob included).

The W03083's fuel tank, with a capacity of 1.8 gallon, supports uninterrupted operation for up to 10 hours when fully fueled (fuel consumption at an estimated 0.18 gallons per hour).

With a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), the W03083 delivers a clean sine wave—essential for safeguarding your delicate electronics when plugged into its AC outlets.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 3 AC outlets:

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

Moreover, it presents 2 DC outlets: there's a 5V USB port with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient and a 12V 8A receptacle making battery charging a breeze.

Equipped with a TT-30R receptacle (TT representing 'Travel Trailer'), this Firman generator is RV Ready, ensuring compatibility with recreational vehicles.

Portability

The Firman W03083 is an inverter generator and features an encased design with the following dimensions: L23.2 x W17.8 x H17.9 in. This design enhances aesthetics and helps minimize noise levels, distinguishing it from conventional, open frame products. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

With a dry weight of 90 lbs, the W03083 is manageable, ensuring it can accompany you wherever you need power. Moreover, its set of 2 wheels (⌀5") and its folding handle will allow you to easily shift it once it's on the ground.

Features

The W03083's control panel

To help you monitor the W03083's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a convenient meter, displaying voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours information.

In addition to this info, the device's light indicators will illuminate to indicate if the generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is overloaded.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during use.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Firman W03083 also comes with some accessories: key fob, oil, funnel, tool kit and battery charging cables are included.

The Firman W03083 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Firman W03083 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 90 lbs, the Firman W03083 belongs in the expected weight range for inverters which can produce between 2500 and 3500 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, standing at just 46 lbs.
  • With a lowest noise rating of 58 dBA, the inverter generator is one of the more quiet of the generators of similar type and power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Honda EU3000iS, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 50 dBA.
  • Regarding its runtime, the W03083 operates for up to 10 hours at a 25% load, positioning it at the lower spectrum among comparable inverters. For those prioritizing autonomy, the Champion 200914 could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching up to 22 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. This inverter generator has an estimated fuel consumption of roughly 0.18 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 25% load, rendering it somewhat average compared to devices of a similar output. If you wish to get a unit of similar power, but with one of the best fuel efficiency, you could consider the Energizer eZV3500P, which has an impressively low fuel consumption of 0.13 GPH.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Firman W03083 vs Firman W03081.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the Firman W03083 is on the average side of the price range.

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