Description

Zoom on the Lifan LF8750iEPL

In summary, the Lifan LF8750iEPL is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners and people participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure
  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level

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 Lifan LF8750iEPL's build contains a gasoline-fueled 420 cc (15 hp) Lifan OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120V output, it gives a running wattage of 8000W and also a peak wattage of 8750W.

Enjoying a noise rating of 75 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator can be started thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also to a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery not included).

The fuel capacity of 7.5 gallons allows the LF8750iEPL to operate for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.75 GPH).

Sensitive electronics can be safely plugged in the AC outlets, as the LF8750iEPL produces a clean sine wave, with a <5% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD).

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

Furthermore, it has 3 DC outlets: there's two 12V 8A receptacles with which charging your batteries is made easy and a 5V USB port with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

While this Lifan generator is not RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle can be used for a simple RV connection with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, as the LF8750iEPL 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

With its dimensions of L28.7 x W22.3 x H23.3 in, the conventional, open frame design of the Lifan LF8750iEPL offers stability and allows the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

Since the generator weighs 185 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). 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.

A lift hook located on the top of the frame offers an additional safety feature while facilitating the transport, loading and unloading of the generator.

Features

The LF8750iEPL's control panel

To help you monitor the LF8750iEPL's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a convenient meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours.

Thanks to a built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently and easily check the gas level at a glance.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), giving you a peace of mind during use.

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

Emissions

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

The Lifan LF8750iEPL versus other generators

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

  • As for its weight, the Lifan LF8750iEPL weighs only 185 pounds, making it one of the lighter generators in the 7500-8500 rated wattage category.
  • The generator can be considered average in its noise for its power category, as it is rated at 75 dBA. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the WEN GN9500 with only 64 dBA.
  • As the LF8750iEPL offers around 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. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Firman H08053, boasting with around 12 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. This generator has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.75 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Westinghouse WPro8500, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.55 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

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

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