Zoom on the Generac GP3300

In a nutshell, the Generac GP3300 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers looking for even more independence
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Generac GP3300 in use

The Generac GP3300

The Generac GP3300's engine, 163 cc (208 hp) Generac OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 3,300W and reaches a peak wattage of 3,750W.

This generator is started via a conventional pull-start mechanism.

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 3.35 gallons, the GP3300 can operate for around 10.3 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.33 GPH).

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the GP3300 is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<25%).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 5 AC outlets:

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

Portability

The design of the Generac GP3300 is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L24.2 x W22.5 x H21 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

While the generator is considered to be technically 'portable' (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 101.5 lbs. Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

The GP3300's control panel

One of the many GP3300's features is the data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the lifetime run hours and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

The generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Generac GP3300 also is packed along with the following accessories: RV adapter and oil.

Emissions

The Generac GP3300 is CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used in forested areas.

The Generac GP3300 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Generac GP3300 compare to generators of similar power (between 2500 and 3500 W).

  • As its weight is 101.5 pounds, the Generac GP3300 falls in the expected weight range of the devices in the 2500-3500 rated wattage category. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Pulsar PGD40iSCO, standing at just 46 lbs.
  • Offering around 10.3 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the GP3300 is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Predator 4375, reaching around 16 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 0.33 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 Pulsar PGD40iSCO, with a fuel consumption of 0.22 GPH could be in your good books.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Generac GP3300 vs Generac GP3250.

    I race motorcycle on the road 200 days a year and pull a 30 foot box trailer and I power it with a GP3300 I’ve had in use for three years. It ran longer than my last Honda the Honda blow up in a year come not get part out on the road. The GP 3300 I can get part at the parts store I had a head gasket blow but I was able to repair it with parts the location Auto Zone in a little town in the middle of no were. It ran a year longer. But this year it was cold as hell and had a hard time starting so knowing better I give it a little shot of starting fuel and it was the real fuel it blow the head off I’m talking the hell off broke the head bolts so I was thinking it would not recover from that but i got all my thing together and I old school serfs the head and cyclder with a flat glass an sand paper knock the glaze off the rings and bore work. The cakes use the old gasket old rings new case hard bolts made a push rod holder pull it one time it started smoke back fire for a min and it’s level out and is still running like a new one all this time not a min trouble out of anything else on it. It’s not smoking at all run a little old every 10 tank of fuel. Runs every day and night for 7 years now so yes it’s a damn good tool. So don’t be scared to go get one u want be disappointed at all
