Description

Zoom on the Ford FG11050PE

In a nutshell, the Ford FG11050PE is a powerful portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Homeowners who wish to power almost all appliances in their house under any circumstances
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working
  • 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, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Ford FG11050PE in use

The Ford FG11050PE

The Ford FG11050PE houses a 457 cc Ducar OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120/240V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 9,000W along with a peak wattage of 11,050W.

The generator is rated for a noise of 78 dBA (less noisy than a shower). Its starting mechanisms include a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons allows the FG11050PE to operate for around 9.5 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.69 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

If you own an RV with a 50-amp service, you can consider this Ford unit as RV-ready, as it features a 14-50R outlet. Its L5-30R receptacle can also be used for a simple RV connection with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.

Portability

The design of the Ford FG11050PE is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L30 x W29.3 x H25 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Since the generator weighs 218 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). Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

The FG11050PE's control panel

To help you monitor the FG11050PE's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a digital data center, giving you information on the lifetime run hours.

Thanks to a built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently and easily check the gas level at a glance.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Ford FG11050PE's package also includes these accessories: tool kit, funnel and oil.

Emissions

The Ford FG11050PE is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

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

Product Video

The Ford FG11050PE versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Ford FG11050PE compare to generators of similar power (between 8500 and 9500 W).

  • As its weight is 218 pounds, the Ford FG11050PE falls in the expected weight range of the devices in the 8500-9500 rated wattage category. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc, standing at just 187.4 lbs.
  • When compared to devices able to produce a similar running wattage, this generator and its lowest emitted noise of 78 dBA is on the noisier side. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Pulsar PGD105TiSCO with only 62 dBA.
  • Given that the FG11050PE reaches an autonomy of around 9.5 hours with a full tank and at 50% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc, boasting with around 12 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. This generator is one of the more fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.69 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.66 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 8500-9500W generators, the Ford FG11050PE is on the average side of the price range.

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