Description

Ideal for use at outdoor events, the next DIY project or emergency backup power in the case of an outage, the Generac GP7500E Dual Fuel provides power and versatility when and where you need it. (source: Generac (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Generac GP7500EDF

In short, the Generac GP7500EDF is a portable generator adequately designed for:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the forthcoming sections, you'll delve into its power characteristics, the various outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the additional features it boasts.

Power & Run Time

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Generac GP7500EDF provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 7,500W along with a peak wattage of 9,400W. While propane-powered, it provides 6,800 rated watts and 8,500 starting watts.

This generator features a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism, but also a user-friendly and efficient electric starter (battery included).

In terms of its run time capability, the GP7500EDF, furnished with a 7.9 gallons fuel tank, can maintain operations for around 10 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (with fuel consumption averaging 0.79 gallons per hour). It also provides around 5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.94 GPH) of operation with propane.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the GP7500EDF 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

At L27.2 x W27 x H27.1 in, the Generac GP7500EDF boasts a traditional open frame structure, ensuring stability and allowing for convenient maintenance access to components, promoting air circulation. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Since the generator weighs 204 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). However, the limited maneuverability is remedied with its wheel kit (⌀9.5") and its folding handle, facilitating convenient shifting once the generator is positioned on the ground.

Features

The GP7500EDF's control panel

Monitoring of the GP7500EDF'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 its built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently, and easily check the gas level at a glance.

Considering security aspects, the generator boasts an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), offering peace of mind throughout operation.

The GP7500EDF also benefits from Generac’s COsense® carbon monoxide monitoring. This technology senses and manages CO output and shuts down the unit when necessary, to protect you from CO poisoning.

Alongside the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) for quick setup, the Generac GP7500EDF is bundled with additional accessories: battery charger, funnel, propane hose and oil.

The Generac GP7500EDF versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Generac GP7500EDF compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7000 and 8000 W).

  • With a dry weight of 204 lbs, the Generac GP7500EDF falls within the expected weight range for dual fuel generators in the 7000 to 8000 rated wattage. Weight-conscious users may find the Sportsman GEN85KIDF appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 133 pounds.
  • The GP7500EDF, offering a run time of around 10 hours with a full tank at a 50% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Firman H07552, boasting with around 12 hours.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. In terms of fuel efficiency within its wattage range, this generator falls short: it consumes approximately 0.79 GPH at a 50% load. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Cummins Onan P9500df. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.6 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 7000-8000W dual fuel generators, the Generac GP7500EDF is on the average side of the price range.

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