Zoom on the Ryobi RY907022FI

In a nutshell, the Ryobi RY907022FI is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners and people participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Ryobi RY907022FI in use

The Ryobi RY907022FI

The Ryobi RY907022FI's engine, 420 cc Ryobi OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 7000W and reaches a peak wattage of 8750W.

The generator is rated for a noise of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a shower). Its starting mechanisms include a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included) and a simple traditional pull-start mechanism.

With a full tank, the RY907022FI can operate for around 9.3 hours at 50% load (fuel consumption around 0.65 GPH), thanks to its fuel capacity of 6 gallons.

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the RY907022FI is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<20%).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 5 AC outlets:

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

Due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the RY907022FI is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

The design of the Ryobi RY907022FI is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L34 x W31 x H26 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it 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 214 pounds. Never less, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of a wheel kit (⌀12") and a folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

The RY907022FI's control panel

The control panel of the RY907022FI includes a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

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

It also includes a carbon monoxide sensor. This sensor is designed to monitor the level of carbon monoxide present during the generator's operation. If the generator is positioned incorrectly and carbon monoxide levels rise to an unsafe level, the LED on the sensor will flash red and the generator will automatically shut down. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside.

While the standard documentation and a user manual, helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the Ryobi RY907022FI, the following accessories are also included: oil, tool kit and funnel.

Emissions

The Ryobi RY907022FI is EPA approved, but NOT CARB-compliant. Thus, it cannot be purchased or sold in California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Ryobi RY907022FI versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Ryobi RY907022FI compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • A weight of 214 lbs makes the Ryobi RY907022FI one of the heavier devices 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.
  • As this generator can emit noise as low as 74 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 59 dBA.
  • Regarding its autonomy, the autonomy of the RY907022FI, reaching around 9.3 hours at a 50% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Generac XC6500, which is able to run for around 14 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 reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.65 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. 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 6500-7500W generators, the Ryobi RY907022FI is on the average side of the price range.

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