Description

Zoom on the Ford FG7750PE

In summary, the Ford FG7750PE 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
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

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 FG7750PE in use

The Ford FG7750PE

The Ford FG7750PE houses a 420 cc Ducar OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120/240V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 6250W along with a peak wattage of 7750W.

Enjoying a noise rating of 76 dBA (less noisy than a shower), this generator can be started thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also to a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

The FG7750PE can operate for around 10.5 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.63 GPH), due to its fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons.

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

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. Besides, as it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the FG7750PE is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

The dimensions of the Ford FG7750PE, which are L30 x W29.5 x H25 in, and its typical, open frame design provides stability and enables the generator to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 181 pounds. However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Ford FG7750PE

The FG7750PE's control panel

The control panel of the FG7750PE includes a digital data center, which assists you in monitoring its status and activity, as it provides information on the lifetime run hours.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

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

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Ford FG7750PE, the following accessories are also included: oil, tool kit and funnel.

Emissions

The Ford FG7750PE 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 FG7750PE versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Ford FG7750PE compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • As its weight is 181 pounds, the Ford FG7750PE falls in the expected weight range of the devices in the 5500-6500 rated wattage category. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Pulsar G65BN, weighing just 126 pounds.
  • This generator, with its lowest possible noise rated at 76 dBA falls into the more noisy category, compared to other devise of a similar running wattage. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Honda EU7000iS. With just 52 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Autonomy-wise, with around 10.5 hours on a full tank at a 50% load, the FG7750PE is on the low end when compared to other generators of a similar power output. 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 Cat RP5500, with around 15 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. Standing at an estimated 0.63 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, this generator is somewhat average in this area compared to other devices, within the aforementioned wattage range. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the A-iPower SUA7000L, with a fuel consumption of 0.36 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 5500-6500W generators, the Ford FG7750PE is on the average side of the price range.

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

However, the company promises great customer service, pre-delivery testing, and their products receive overall very good reviews.
