Description

With one of the largest engines in its class, the 15 HP Pulsar PG7500 provides up to 7500 peak watts that is enough to operate up to four major appliances at one time and still operate for up to 13 hours on a single 6.6 gallon tank of gasoline. With seven outlets, digital meter, easy-to-read fuel gauge, mobility kit and a maintenance-free battery for electric start from its keyless ignition, the PG7500 will be a welcome addition to any homeowner’s convenience arsenal when the power goes out.

Zoom on the Pulsar PG7500

To sum up, the Pulsar PG7500 is a portable generator tailored for:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the extra features it benefits from.

Power & Run Time

With a 420 cc (15 hp) Ducar OHV 4-stroke engine, the Pulsar PG7500 operates on gasoline, providing 120/240V, with a running wattage of 6,000W and a starting wattage of 7,500W.

At a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), this generator can be started via a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism, or a user-friendly and efficient electric starter (battery included).

The PG7500's fuel tank holds 6.6 gallons, ensuring uninterrupted operation for around 13 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption approximately 0.51 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel features 6 AC outlets as follows:

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

In addition, it provides 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output enabling simple battery charging for added ease.

This Pulsar generator features an L5-30R receptacle, enabling an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. However, it is still not quite RV ready. Besides, thanks to its twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the PG7500 is transfer switch ready, facilitating easy hookup to your breaker box to provide backup power for your home during blackouts.

Portability

At L27 x W22.4 x H21.6 in, the Pulsar PG7500 boasts a traditional open frame structure, ensuring stability and allowing for convenient maintenance access to components, promoting air circulation. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Despite its weight of 185 lbs, the generator is still considered 'portable,' meaning it is movable, although its heftiness may restrict portability in certain environments or require additional considerations for transportation and setup. Nevertheless, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of its wheel kit and its folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

Panel of the Pulsar PG7500

The PG7500's control panel

To facilitate status and activity monitoring, a convenient meter, showing voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours metrics are embedded in the control panel of the PG7500.

In addition to this info, when the oil level is too low, you will be informed by the featured light indicator.

The generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

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

Along with the aforementioned features, from an accessory standpoint, the Pulsar PG7500's box includes the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which will help you start your generator promptly.

The Pulsar PG7500 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Pulsar PG7500 compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 185 lbs, the Pulsar PG7500 falls within the expected weight range for generators in the 5500 to 6500 rated wattage. Weight-conscious users may find the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO appealing, as it is one of the top contenders in this power range, weighing just 118 pounds.
  • Because this generator emits noise as low as 74 dBA, it can be considered to have a pretty average expected noise rating for a device of its power. If you wish to prioritize minimal noise, the Honda EU7000iS stands out as one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, with a rating of 52 dBA.
  • Among its devices with similar power, the PG7500 offers one of the higher run times, running for around 13 hours at 50% load. For those prioritizing autonomy, the Predator 6500 could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching around 14.5 hours.
  • While run time matters, it's heavily influenced by the fuel tank's capacity. Hence, it's important to consider fuel efficiency alongside. With a fuel consumption rate around 0.51 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, this generator is one of the more fuel-efficient models within the aforementioned wattage range. If gasoline efficiency is at the top of your list, you may want to have a look at the A-iPower SUA7000L, which has great fuel efficiency, with a gas consumption of only 0.36 gallons per hour.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 5500-6500W generators, the Pulsar PG7500 is on the average side of the price range.

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