Power & Run Time

The Pulsar PG7750B in use

The Pulsar PG7750B

The dual-fuel technology of the Pulsar PG7750B allows for an output of 120/240V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 6250W and a starting wattage of 7250W. If propane-powered, it gives 5950 rated watts and 6250 starting watts.

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 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a shower), this generator can be started via a conventional pull-start mechanism, or a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

The running time of the PG7750B, with its 6.6 gallons fuel capacity, can reach around 13 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.51 GPH). With propane, it can reach around 13 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.36 GPH).

Several examples of what the generator may allow you to power simultaneously are: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 features the following 6 AC outlets:

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

Additionally, it features 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

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, as the PG7750B 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

The Pulsar PG7750B has the following dimensions: L26.8 x W20.5 x H24.8 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor 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 195 lbs. Never less, thanks to a wheel kit (⌀10") and a folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

Panel of the Pulsar PG7750B

The PG7750B's control panel

The control panel of the PG7750B includes a convenient meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator serves to show you when the oil level is too low.

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

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

Besides the usual set of documentation and user manual to get you promptly started, Pulsar also included a propane hose in the PG7750B's packaging.

Emissions

The Pulsar PG7750B is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

The Pulsar PG7750B versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Pulsar PG7750B compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • Having a dry weight of 195 lbs, the Pulsar PG7750B belongs in the expected weight range for generators which produce 5500 to 6500 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Lifan LF7250, standing at just 140 lbs.
  • Because this generator emits noise as low as 72 dBA, it can be considered to have a pretty average expected noise rating for a device of its power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU7000iS, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 52 dBA.
  • Since the PG7750B boasts with a run time of 13 hours at 50% load, it can be safely judged as a device of a higher run time than most generators of a comparable output. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Cat RP5500, as it provides 15 hours.
  • 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 is one of the more fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.51 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.38 GPH, the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI is a device you should look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 5500-6500W generators, the Pulsar PG7750B 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.
