Dual fuel technology: the ability to run on propane or gasoline provides greater fuel choice and flexibility. Protects your investment by automatically shutting down the generator when the oil level reaches a preset level. With a starting wattage of 12,000 and a running wattage of 9,500, this unit is capable of handling a wide range of loads, from lights and a refrigerator to a home air conditioner and high-amperage power equipment.
Powered by a 457cc Westinghouse 4-Stroke OHV engine with a long-lasting cast iron sleeve, low oil shutoff, and digital hour metre. The VFT display provides real-time updates on the output voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours. Plug-and-Play: Includes a Propane Regulator, a Remote Start Key Fob, a 12V Battery Charger, Oil, an Oil Funnel, a Tool Kit, Heat Resistant Plastic Wheels with Never-Flat Polyurethane Tires, and a User's Manual to Get You Started Right Out of the Box (Minimal Assembly Required)
It is just not possible to acquire twice the amount of energy from a propane BBQ tank as you do from eight gallons of gasoline. A gallon of gasoline has around 920,000 BTUs. A 20 lb bottle has 430,960 BTUs if the bottle is truly 20 lb. And in the United States of America, federal law bans filling more than 80%. As a result, there is no way to get twice the mileage out of a BBQ tank as there is with a gasoline tank.
Just to clarify.. IF you wish to perform an operation on the unit that is not specifically stated in the instructions.. i.e. "converted to run on natural gas" you will need to contact the manufacturer directly.. Inquiring with the general public is not a secure method of obtaining information on something that is ONLY created and recommended to work with Gasoline/Propane. Not to be impolite, but it is an EXTREMELY good way to get hurt or ruin the device, and so I would recommend getting your information directly from the manufacturer if it entails attempting to alter the way the unit is supposed to perform.
To everyone who believes Toddd made the bad choice in hiring a certified electrician, I am convinced you are incorrect. According to you, what is a "manual transfer switch"? It is simply a breaker or switch that must be manually activated. It is not a problem as long as the electrician constructed it in accordance with the applicable codes. To address your question, I believe the description indicates that the outlet is a 50A RV outlet. This is the outlet located just across from the transfer switch. The transfer switch is a twist lock, but the RV outlet is not; nonetheless, if you look closely at the photo, it is the one with four holes. Additionally, it is 120/240 volts.
