Power & Run Time

The Firman W03382 in use

The Firman W03382

The Firman W03382 is powered by a 193 cc Firman Max-Pro Series OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 3,300W as well as a peak wattage of 3,650W. In addition, as it is parallel capable (Firman parallel kit (opens in a new tab) not included), this power can be increased when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

The inverter generator features a simple traditional 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 a refrigerator).

With a full tank, the W03382 can operate for up to 10 hours (fuel consumption around 0.18 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 1.8 gallon.

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the W03382 produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 3 AC outlets:

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

Furthermore, it has 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.

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

Portability

The Firman W03382's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L23.2 x W17.8 x H17.9 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. The design follows the contemporary trends and is perfect for recreationally generating power.

The W03382 can be taken anywhere with you, thanks to its weight of 91 lbs. Additionally, it can be easily moved with the help of its set of 2 wheels (⌀5") and its folding handle, once it is on the ground.

The W03382's control panel

To help you monitor the W03382's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a convenient meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

In addition to this info, the light indicators show you if the generator is ready, the generator is overloaded and the oil level is too low.

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.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the Firman W03382 also comes with some accessories: battery charger, oil, battery charging cables, funnel and tool kit are included.

Emissions

The Firman W03382 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, 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 you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, with a dry weight of just 46 pounds.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 58 dBA, this inverter generator is one of the quieter devices 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.
  • The W03382's autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its type and power range, as it reaches only up to 10 hours at 25% load on a full tank. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Champion 200914, which is able to run for 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
