Description

LIFAN Power USA’s Platinum Series LF8750iEPL-RV Generator is part of our Platinum Portable Generator Series. Our Platinum Portable Generators contain low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) alternator technology, which produces “Clean Energy” with a Sine Wave Distortion of 5% or less! For maximum conductivity, the Platinum Portable Generators use 100% copper windings and welded magnetic plates to produce clean, dependable energy. These commercial grade generators are a perfect fit for the farm, contractors, emergencies, homeowners, job sites, or special events! (source: Lifan)

Zoom on the Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV

In a nutshell, the Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners and people participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV's core is the 420 cc (15 hp) Lifan OHV 4-stroke engine, which runs on gasoline. With an output of 120/240V, it provides a running wattage of 8000W and a peak wattage of 8750W.

At a noise rating of 75 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator can be started via a conventional pull-start mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery not included).

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 7.5 gallons, the LF8750iEPL-RV can operate for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.75 GPH).

The LF8750iEPL-RV generates a clean sine wave: providing <5% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), delicate electronics can be plugged in its AC outlets safely.

Here are a few examples of what this generator could allow you to simultaneously power:Note: Not all of these items may be able to start at the same time. These examples are based on a maximum load of 75 % and on wattage estimates. Use our wattage calculator to find out if this product will be suitable for your needs.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

In addition, it provides 3 DC outlets: there's two 12V 8A receptacles with which charging your batteries is made easy and a 5V USB port with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

Portability

The dimensions of the Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV, which are L28.7 x W22.3 x H23.3 in, and its typical, open frame design provides stability and enables the generator to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 185 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). Still, once it is on the ground, a wheel kit (⌀10") and a folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

The generator comes with an additional safety feature, a lift hook on the top of its frame, which is helpful during its transport, loading and unloading.

The LF8750iEPL-RV's control panel

The LF8750iEPL-RV's control center features a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

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

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.

Besides the usual set of documentation and user manual to get you promptly started, Lifan also included a tool kit in the LF8750iEPL-RV's packaging.

Emissions

The Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

The Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV compare to generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • In terms of its dry weigh, the Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV stands at only 185 lbs, meaning that is one of the one of the lighter devices of the 7500-8500 rated wattage category
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its power range, rated at 75 dBA. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Powermate DF7500E, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 68 dBA.
  • As the LF8750iEPL-RV offers 10 hours run time on a full tank at a 50% load, it falls within the average autonomy range among the generators of a similar power. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Firman H08053, which is able to run for 12 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator Standing at an estimated 0.75 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 further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Westinghouse WPro8500, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.55 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 7500-8500W generators, the Lifan LF8750iEPL-RV is on the average side of the price range.

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