Description

The performance of gasoline and the convenience of liquid propane in the same generator that includes one of the most powerful engines in its product class make the PG7500B a serious contender for both daily use and/or storm related emergencies. This electric start, 7500 peak-watt, outdoor generator includes dozens of wanted features such as a keyless, electric-start ignition, maintenance-free battery, easy-to-read fuel gauge and a mobility kit with over-sized, no-flat tires and convenient fold-down handle, PLUS the ability to switch from gasoline to clean, safe, convenient LP whenever its needed to power multiple 12V, 120V and 240V devices for up to 13 hours at half load at just 74 dB of noise.

Zoom on the Pulsar PG7500B

In summary, the Pulsar PG7500B is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners and people participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • RV travellers looking for even more independence

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

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile Pulsar PG7500B provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 6750W along with a peak wattage of 7500W. While propane-powered, it provides 5400 rated watts and 6000 starting watts.

At a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), this generator can be started via a conventional pull-start mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

With a fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons, the PG7500B can operate for around 13 hours at 50% load using gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.51 GPH). Unfortunately, and despite our research efforts, we couldn't find any information regarding its runtime when using propane. Don't hesitate to let us know if you know it.

Several examples of what the generator may allow you to power simultaneously are:Note: The examples above are based on a maximum load of 75% and estimated wattages. The devices also may not be able to start at the same time. For a more accurate estimation, use our wattage calculator.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 6 AC outlets:

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 with which you may charge your batteries with ease.

Even though this Pulsar generator isn't quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle allows an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, because the PG7500B is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

With its dimensions of L27 x W22.4 x H21.6 in, the conventional, open frame design of the Pulsar PG7500B offers stability and allows the generator to be raised above ground level. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 185 pounds. However, its challenging mobility is solved by a wheel kit and a folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

The PG7500B's control panel

The control panel of the PG7500B includes a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicator will display if its oil levels are insufficient.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

Besides the classic documentation and a user manual to get you promptly started, the Pulsar PG7500B also comes with some accessories: oil, tool kit and propane hose are included.

Emissions

The Pulsar PG7500B is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

The Pulsar PG7500B versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Pulsar PG7500B compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • Regarding its weight, the Pulsar PG7500B only weighs in at 185 pounds, which means it's one of the lighter generators in the 6500-7500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Lifan LF7250 with only 140 pounds.
  • This generator has a somewhat average expected noise for its power range, rated at 74 dBA. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 59 dBA.
  • The PG7500B provides a higher run time than similarly powerful devices, reaching 13 hours at 50% load.
  • 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 generator, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.51 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, is one of the more fuel efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.38 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.
