Power & Run Time

The Ford FG7750PE in use

The Ford FG7750PE

Ford FG7750PE is equipped with a 420 cc Ducar OHV 4-stroke engine, running on gasoline and providing 120/240V, boasting a running wattage of 6,250W alongside a starting wattage of 7,750W.

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 convenient and efficient electric starter (battery included).

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

Outlets

The control panel features 6 AC outlets as follows:

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

Though it may not be labeled as 'RV Ready,' this Ford generator offers the benefit of hassle-free RV connectivity through its L5-30R receptacle, allowing you to easily power your RV with the assistance of an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, with its twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the FG7750PE is configured to be transfer switch ready, allowing straightforward connection to your breaker box to supply backup power to your home during outages.

Portability

At L30 x W29.5 x H25 in, the traditional open frame structure of the Ford FG7750PE ensures stability while facilitating convenient maintenance access to components and promoting air cooling. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Even at 181 lbs, the generator is categorized as 'portable,' suggesting its movability, although its weight impede its portability. 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

Panel of the Ford FG7750PE

The FG7750PE's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the FG7750PE's control panel, gives you information on the lifetime run hours, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

Equipped with a built-in fuel gauge, the generator facilitates swift gas level checks.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use.

In addition to the traditional documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to help you get started promptly, the Ford FG7750PE also includes several accessories: tool kit, funnel and oil.

Product Video

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).

  • With a dry weight of 181 lbs, the Ford FG7750PE falls within the expected weight range for generators in the 5500 to 6500 rated wattage. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO, with a dry weight of only 118 lbs.
  • When compared to devices able to produce a similar running wattage, this generator and its lowest emitted noise of 76 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 Honda EU7000iS with only 52 dBA.
  • The FG7750PE provides around 10.5 hours of runtime at a 50% load on a full tank, placing it within the average autonomy range among similar generators. If runtime is a priority for you, the Predator 6500 stands out as one of the generators with the longest run time in its power range, providing around 14.5 hours of continuous use.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. This generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.63 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you wish to get a unit of similar power, but with one of the best fuel efficiency, you could consider the A-iPower SUA7000L, which has an impressively low fuel consumption of 0.36 GPH.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.
