Zoom on the Pulsar PG7750B
In summary, the Pulsar PG7750B is a portable generator especially useful for:
- Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
- Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
- RV travellers looking for even more independence
Power & Run Time
Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Pulsar PG7750B delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 6250W and a peak wattage of 7250W. When propane-powered, it has 5950 rated watts and 6250 peak 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.
Enjoying a noise rating of 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), this generator can be started thanks to a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also to a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).
The PG7750B, with a fuel capacity of 6.6 gallons, reaches a run time of around 13 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.51 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of around 13 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.36 GPH) with propane.
The control panel includes the following 6 AC outlets:
Furthermore, it has 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output allowing you to easily charge your batteries.
This Pulsar generator isn't quite RV Ready, but it features an L5-30R receptacle, allowing a simple RV connection through an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. 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.
The Pulsar PG7750B has a conventional, open frame design, of the following dimensions: L26.8 x W20.5 x H24.8 in, which offers support and allows it to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.
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. However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.
The control panel of the PG7750B 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, a light indicator shows you if its oil levels are insufficient.
The generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.
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 owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, Pulsar also included a propane hose in the PG7750B's packaging.
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. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Pulsar G65BN, weighing just 126 pounds.
- The generator can be considered average in its noise for its power category, as it is rated at 72 dBA. If noise emissions are important to you, one of the least noisy generators of this power range is the Honda EU7000iS with only 52 dBA.
- As the PG7750B features an autonomy of around 13 hours at 50% load, it has a higher run time than an average generator of its power range. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Cat RP5500, reaching around 15 hours.
- Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency 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 fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.38 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.
As you can see from this interactive 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.

Can this generator be powered by natural gas, as opposed to propane? (Asked June 04, 2021)
The unit is designed to run on gasoline or propane. You may find third party natural gas kits, but we do not recommend them, since they would most likely void your warranty and potentially put you in violation of your local emission laws.
