Zoom on the Genmax GM7250iEDC

In summary, the Genmax GM7250iEDC is a portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • People occasionally participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • 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 dual-fuel technology of the Genmax GM7250iEDC allows for an output of 120/240V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 6,000W and a starting wattage of 7,250W. If propane-powered, it gives 5,500 rated watts and 6,500 starting watts. Moreover, since it is parallel capable (GM9000PK parallel cable (opens in a new tab) not included), its power may be increased if linked to a second compatible unit.

Enjoying a noise rating of 63 dBA (just slightly more noisy than an office), this inverter generator can be started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also to a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). To add further convenience, the GM7250iEDC can be remotely started (key fob included).

Regarding its running time, the GM7250iEDC, with a 3.6 gallons fuel capacity can operate for up to 10 hours with a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.36 GPH). When using propane, it can run for up to 9 hours (estimation based on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.52 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in an AC outlets safely, as the GM7250iEDC generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <5% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

In addition, it provides 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

If you own an RV with a 50-amp service, you can consider this Genmax unit as RV-ready, as it features a 14-50R outlet. In addition, the unit features an ATS plug, which makes it compatible with automatic transfer switches.

Portability

The Genmax GM7250iEDC's characteristic encased inverter generator design (L24.2 x W19.5 x H21.9 in), provides an esthetical advantage over any ordinary, open frame product. The generator has a contemporary design, convenient for recreationally generating power.

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 144.6 lbs. Still, once it is on the ground, its set of 2 wheels and its telecospic handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

The GM7250iEDC's control panel

To help you monitor the GM7250iEDC's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a digital data center, giving you information on the voltage, fuel level, lifetime run hours and power output.

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

It also benefits from Genmax's CO DETECT technology, which is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the generator will automatically shut down. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Genmax GM7250iEDC also comes with several accessories, including: key fob, funnel, tool kit and propane hose.

Emissions

The Genmax GM7250iEDC is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The unit also meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The Genmax GM7250iEDC versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Genmax GM7250iEDC compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • As for its weight, the Genmax GM7250iEDC weighs only 144.6 pounds, making it one of the lighter generators in the 5500-6500 rated wattage category. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Pulsar G65BN, standing at just 126 lbs.
  • Since this inverter generator is rated for a lowest possible noise of 63 dBA, it can be considered as one of the more quiet of the products generating similar power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU7000iS, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 52 dBA.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the GM7250iEDC, reaching up to 10 hours at a 25% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Westinghouse WGen6000, boasting with up to 18 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. With an estimated gasoline consumption of 0.36 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this inverter generator is among the more fuel efficient of the products in the above-mentioned wattage range. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Honda EU7000iS, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.32 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Unlike many websites, we did our best to research each of the specs above. That being said, we are not immune to making the occasional mistake or omission. Should you notice any missing or incorrect values, don't hesitate to suggest improvements so we can address the issue.
* Propane runtime is our own estimation, based on a 20 lbs tank and NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs of propane = 1 gal of gasoline.
