Description

Zoom on the Ford FG11050PE

In summary, the Ford FG11050PE is a powerful portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners and people participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

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 parameters.

Power & Run Time

The Ford FG11050PE in use

The Ford FG11050PE

The Ford FG11050PE is powered by a 457 cc Ducar OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120/240V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 9000W as well as a peak wattage of 11050W.

At a noise rating of 78 dBA (less noisy than a shower), this generator can be started via a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

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

The generator will allow you to simultaneously power various devices, for example:Note: The above mentioned examples presume a maximum load of 75% and use wattage estimates. In addition, the items might not be able to start simultaneously. With our wattage calculator, you can predict if the product can fulfill your requirements.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 6 AC outlets:

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

Even though this Ford generator isn't quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle allows an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.

Portability

The Ford FG11050PE has the following dimensions: L30 x W29.3 x H25 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 218 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). Never less, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of a wheel kit (⌀10") and a folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

The FG11050PE's control panel

The control panel of the FG11050PE includes , helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

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

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

Apart from the typical documentation and a user manual, which lets you start it right away, the Ford FG11050PE also is packed along with the following accessories: oil, funnel and tool kit.

Emissions

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

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

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).

  • Regarding its weight, the Ford FG11050PE only weighs in at 218 pounds, which means it's one of the lighter generators in the 8500-9500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Rainier R12000DF with only 196 pounds.
  • As this generator has its lowest possible noise of 78 dBA, it should be considered noisier compared to its peers of a comparable running wattage. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the A-iPower SUA12000ED with only 69 dBA.
  • Offering 9.5 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the FG11050PE is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Westinghouse WPro8500, which is able to run for 12 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. At an estimated fuel consumption 0.69 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, this generator is a rather fuel efficient one within its wattage category. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Rainier R12000DF. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.55 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, 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.

Ford Power Equipment sells affordable portable generators, water pumps and pressure washers. While generators are licensed under the Ford trademark, they are in fact manufactured and distributed by Pulsar Inc., which manufactures its products in Asia. However, the company promises great customer service, pre-delivery testing, and their products receive overall very good reviews.

Warranty Information

The Ford FG11050PE is covered under a warranty for up to 2 years. This warranty may be limited and may not cover all parts of the generator.
