Zoom on the Ryobi RY907022FI

In summary, the Ryobi RY907022FI is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners and participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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

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.

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

The RY907022FI can operate for around 9.3 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.65 GPH), due 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%).

Here are a few examples of what this generator could allow you to simultaneously power: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 5 AC outlets:

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

As the RY907022FI 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 Ryobi RY907022FI has the following dimensions: L34 x W31 x H26 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 214 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. However, its challenging mobility is solved by a wheel kit (⌀12") and a folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

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.

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

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

Apart from the typical documentation and a user manual, which lets you start it right away, the Ryobi RY907022FI also is packed along with the following accessories: tool kit, oil 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, so it is adequate 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.
  • Since the generator's noise is rated at 74 dBA, it has the roughly average expected noise for a device of similar 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 9.3 hours at a 50% load, can be considered as low end, compared to other products of a roughly equal output. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Pulsar PG7500B, with 13 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 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.

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.
