Zoom on the Firman W03382

In summary, the Firman W03382 is a quiet and compact portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Tailgating and campground aficionados with the desire of enjoying power anywhere they go

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Firman W03382 in use

The Firman W03382

The Firman W03382's design includes a gasoline-fueled 193 cc Firman Max-Pro Series OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 3300W and also a peak wattage of 3650W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (Firman parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

The inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism and also a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 58 dBA (less noisy than rainfall).

With a fuel capacity of 1.8 gallon, the W03382 may run for up to 10 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.18 GPH).

The W03382 generates a clean sine wave: providing <3% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

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

In addition, it provides 2 DC outlets: there's a 12V 8A receptacle with which charging your batteries is made easy and a 5V USB port allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

With its TT-30R receptacle (TT as in 'Travel Trailer'), this Firman generator is RV Ready.

Portability

The Firman W03382 is an inverter generator and has an encased design of the following dimensions: L23.2 x W17.8 x H17.9 in. Thus, it is more aesthetical than conventional, open frame products. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

The W03382 can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 91 lbs. Furthermore, once placed on the floor, effortless displacement is possible thanks to its set of 2 wheels (⌀5") and its folding handle.

Features

Panel of the Firman W03382

The W03382's control panel

The W03382'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.

In addition to this info, the light indicators show you if the generator is ready, its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is overloaded.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Firman W03382 also comes with several accessories, including: battery charging cables, funnel, tool kit, oil and battery charger.

Emissions

The Firman W03382 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, making it usable in forested areas.

The Firman W03382 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Firman W03382 compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 91 lbs, the Firman W03382 belongs in the expected weight range for inverter generators which produce 2500 to 3500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Genmax GM3300i, weighing just 47.4 pounds.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 58 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating similar power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Honda EU3000iS. With just 50 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • As for its autonomy, the W03382, with an autonomy of up to 10 hours at a 25% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. 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 Champion 200914, with 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 further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Energizer eZV3500P, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.13 GPH, may be the right generator for you.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Firman W03382 vs Firman W03381.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 2500-3500W inverter generators, the Firman W03382 is on the average side of the price range.

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

    I have two of these generators. One is three years old. I think that for the money you can’t go wrong with this generators.

    + PROS:
    • Price
    • Noise level
    • Starts easily
    - CONS:
    • Hard to change oil
