Description

Zoom on the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO

In a nutshell, the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO is a powerful portable inverter generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Camping and tailgating hobbyists looking for a portable power source
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device.

Power & Run Time

The Pulsar PGD95BiSCO in use

The Pulsar PGD95BiSCO

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 7,600W and a peak wattage of 9,500W. When propane-powered, it has 7,200 rated watts and 8,550 peak watts. Moreover, the parallel capability (parallel kit not included) enables increasing of power output when paired with another similar or compatible unit, providing increased energy capacity and versatility for a wide range of needs.

At a noise rating of 62 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a normal conversation), this inverter generator can be started via a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism, or a hassle-free and practical electric starter (battery included). Additionally, the PGD95BiSCO may be remotely started, enhancing user convenience (key fob included).

The PGD95BiSCO, with a fuel capacity of 6.9 gallons, reaches a run time of around 9.5 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.73 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of around 4.5 hours (estimation based on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 1.04 GPH) with propane.

The PGD95BiSCO generates a clean sine wave with <5% Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), ensuring minimal electrical noise and fluctuations. This feature makes it ideal for powering sensitive electronics, providing stable and reliable AC power through the outlets.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 6 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

Additionally, it features 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (1 x USB-A and 1 x USB-C) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

Since the PGD95BiSCO bears a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it is easily connectible to a breaker box and can power your home in case of a power outage.

Portability

With its enclosed inverter generator design (L31.4 x W22.8 x H29.4 in), the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO offers superior aesthetics and operates with minimized noise levels, distinguishing itself from standard, open frame generators. The featured design follows the latest trends and is ideal for easy and recreational 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 244 pounds. Nonetheless, the limited maneuverability is compensated for by utilizing its set of 2 wheels and its folding handle, which facilitates shifting once the generator is set on the ground.

The PGD95BiSCO's control panel

Monitoring of the PGD95BiSCO's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the frequency, voltage, lifetime run hours and power output and is one of the features of its control panel.

In addition to this info, light indicators on the device will signal if the generator is ready, the generator is on overload and its oil levels are insufficient.

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

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.

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.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO's package also includes these accessories: propane hose, funnel, tool kit and key fob.

The Pulsar PGD95BiSCO versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • With a weight of 244 lbs, the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO is notably on the heaviest side among dual fuel generators in the 7500-8500 rated wattage range. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Cummins Onan P9500df with only 194 pounds.
  • Rated at a lowest possible noise level of 62 dBA, this inverter generator positions itself amongst the more quiet of the products of similar type and power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may want to take a look at the DuroMax XP9500iH. It's one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, rated at 61 dBA.
  • As for its runtime, the PGD95BiSCO runs for around 9.5 hours at a 50% load, placing it towards the low end among comparable dual fuel products. If wyou wish to prioritize autonomy, the Firman H07553 shines as one of the top contenders, offering one of the highest run times among generators with similar power output, totaling around 12 hours.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. When operating at 50% load, the inverter generator's fuel consumption is estimated at 0.73 GPH, placing it within the average range of gasoline usage among similarly powerful devices. If gasoline efficiency is at the top of your list, you may want to have a look at the Cummins Onan P9500df, which has great fuel efficiency, with a gas consumption of only 0.6 gallons per hour.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 7500-8500W generators, the Pulsar PGD95BiSCO is on the expensive side of the price range.

While certainly not the cheapest of its kind, purchasing it would most likely also mean enjoying the reliability of a high-end product.
