Description

Zoom on the Genmax GM9000iE

In summary, the Genmax GM9000iE is a powerful portable inverter generator especially useful 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
  • Camping and tailgating buffs looking to enhance their experience
  • 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 Genmax GM9000iE in use

The Genmax GM9000iE

The Genmax GM9000iE's core is the 458 cc Dinking OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 7,600W and a peak wattage of 9,000W. In addition, the device is parallel capable (GM9000PK (opens in a new tab) not included) and thus, can be linked to a similar or compatible unit for added power.

With a noise rating of 62 dBA (just slightly more noisy than background music), the inverter generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). The GM9000iE can also be remotely started, offering further convenience (key fob included).

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 6.9 gallons, the GM9000iE can operate for up to 14.5 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.48 GPH).

As the GM9000iE produces a clean sine wave, with a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

Additionally, it features 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

As the GM9000iE holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

Thanks to its closed inverter generator design (L30.9 x W22.6 x H29.3 in), the Genmax GM9000iE, is more esthetical than a typical, open frame generator. This modern design aims to provide an ideal power solution to recreational users.

Since the generator weighs 233.7 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). Nevertheless, thanks to its set of 2 wheels (⌀7") and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

The GM9000iE's control panel

One of the many GM9000iE's features is the data center, included in its control panel, which conveniently provides information on the lifetime run hours, frequency, power output and voltage and thus, helps you monitor its activity and status.

In addition to this info, some light indicators allow you to instantly see if the generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is on overload.

The fuel level of the inverter generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you 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.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the Genmax GM9000iE also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, funnel and key fob.

Emissions

The Genmax GM9000iE is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

However, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

In addition, the unit meets the ANSI/PGMA G300-2018 safety and performance requirements.

The Genmax GM9000iE versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Genmax GM9000iE compare to generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • A weight of 233.7 lbs makes the Genmax GM9000iE one of the heavier devices in the 7500-8500 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Westinghouse ecoGen10000, with a dry weight of only 147.7 lbs.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 62 dBA, this inverter generator qualifies as one of the most quiet of the products of similar power.
  • The GM9000iE's autonomy is somewhat low end compared to devices of its power range, as it reaches only up to 14.5 hours at 25% load on a full tank. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the DuroMax XP10000HX, boasting with up to 22 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. This inverter generator is not fuel efficient compared to devices of similar output: its estimated fuel consumption stands at 0.48 GPH at a 25% load. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the DuroMax XP9000iH, with a fuel consumption of 0.35 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 7500-8500W generators, the Genmax GM9000iE is on the average side of the price range.

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