Zoom on the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO

In summary, the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO is a compact portable inverter generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers looking for even more independence
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • 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

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

Power & Run Time

The Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO in use

The Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO

The Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO, equipped with dual-fuel technology and delivering 120V, ensures both power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 3,700W and a starting wattage of 4,500W. On propane, it provides 3,330 running watts and 4,050 starting watts. Additionally, as the generator is parallel capable (parallel kit not included), it can be linked to a second unit for more power.

Pulsar’s patented Switch & Go technology allows you to switch from propane to gasoline or from gasoline to propane while the generator is running.

At a noise rating of 64 dBA (just slightly more noisy than background music), this inverter generator can be started via a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). Additionally, the PG4500BiSRCO may be remotely started, enhancing user convenience (key fob included).

As for its running time, the PG4500BiSRCO, along with its 3.2 gallons fuel capacity, can run for around 7 hours at 50% load with a full tank filled with gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.46 GPH). If propane is used, it can operate for around 8 hours (estimation based on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.59 GPH).

Delicate electronics can be plugged in the AC outlets safely, as the PG4500BiSRCO generates a clean sine wave, reaching a <3% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)
120V 30A (TT-30R) receptacle

Furthermore, it has 1 DC outlet: there's a 5V USB port (USB-A) allowing you to conveniently charge electronics such as mobile phones and tablets.

Thanks to its TT-30R receptacle (TT meaning 'Travel Trailer'), this Pulsar generator is RV Ready, ready to power your recreational vehicle with ease.

Portability

Since the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO is an inverter generator, its closed design (L24.5 x W18.7 x H21.1 in) not only provides an aesthetic advantage but also contributes to reduced noise levels compared to conventional, open frame devices. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational use.

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 103 lbs. Nevertheless, the restricted maneuverability is counteracted by its set of 2 wheels (⌀5.5") and its telecospic handle, enabling easy shifting once the generator is set in place.

Features

Panel of the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO

The PG4500BiSRCO's control panel

The generator's light indicators provide visual feedback when the generator is ready, the oil level is too low and the generator is overloaded.

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.

The unit also benefits from Pulsar's CO Sentry carbon monoxide detection. The sensor monitors for the accumulation of poisonous carbon monoxide gas around the generator, and shuts down the engine is increasing levels of CO gas are detected.

Alongside the typical set of documentation and the user manual to assist with setup, Pulsar has included accessory] in the packaging of the PG4500BiSRCO.

The Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO compare to inverter generators of similar power (between 3500 and 4500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 103 lbs, the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO falls within the expected weight range for inverter generators in the 3500 to 4500 rated wattage. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Genmax GM4600iAEFIC, standing at just 58.4 lbs.
  • If compared to generators capable of producing a similar running wattage, this inverter generator with a lowest emitted noise of 64 dBA can be considered somewhat noisy. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may want to take a look at the Westinghouse iGen4500DF. It's one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, rated at 52 dBA.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the PG4500BiSRCO, reaching around 7 hours at a 50% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other inverters of a roughly equal output. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, reaching around 15 hours.
  • Though run time is a significant parameter, it's closely tied to the generator's fuel tank size. To get a comprehensive understanding, fuel efficiency must also be taken into account. In fact, this inverter generator is not one of the most fuel-efficient options in the aforementioned wattage range: its estimated gasoline consumption at 50% load is around 0.46 GPH. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, with a fuel consumption of 0.23 GPH could be in your good books.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3500-4500W dual fuel inverter generators, the Pulsar PG4500BiSRCO is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.

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.
