Description

Zoom on the Ford FG7750PBE

In summary, the Ford FG7750PBE is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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 Ford FG7750PBE in use

The Ford FG7750PBE

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Ford FG7750PBE provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 6,250W along with a peak wattage of 7,750W. While propane-powered, it provides 6,000 rated watts and 7,500 starting watts.

Ford’s patented Switch & Go technology allows you to switch from propane to gasoline or from gasoline to propane while the generator is running.

The generator is rated for a noise of 76 dBA (less noisy than a vacuum cleaner). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

As for its running time, the FG7750PBE, along with its 6.6 gallons fuel capacity, can run for around 10.5 hours at 50% load with a full tank filled with gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.63 GPH). If propane is used, it can operate for around 8 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.59 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

While this Ford generator is not RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle can be used for a simple RV connection with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, as the FG7750PBE holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

The Ford FG7750PBE has the following dimensions: L30 x W29.5 x H25 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 201 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

The FG7750PBE's control panel

Monitoring of the FG7750PBE's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours and is one of the features of its control panel.

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

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Ford FG7750PBE's package also includes these accessories: propane hose, oil, funnel and tool kit.

Emissions

The Ford FG7750PBE 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.

The Ford FG7750PBE versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Ford FG7750PBE compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • A weight of 201 lbs makes the Ford FG7750PBE one of the heavier dual fuel devices in the 5500-6500 rated wattage range. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Pulsar G65BN, with a dry weight of just 126 pounds.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this generator with a lowest noise of 76 dBA can be judged as noisy. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Genmax GM7250iEDC, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 63 dBA.
  • The FG7750PBE provides a higher run time than similarly powerful dual fuel devices, reaching around 10.5 hours at 50% load. 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 Firman H05751, with around 12 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank’s capacity and thus, doesn’t say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. This generator has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.63 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Genmax GM7250iEDC, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.45 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 5500-6500W dual fuel generators, the Ford FG7750PBE is on the average side of the price range.

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