Does this generator have a pure sine wave and is it safe to use with electronics?
L. Kaopua 
from Hawaii 
January 19, 2014
Answer
Thanks for your inquiry.

Conventional generators (Like the LP3250) consist of heavy copper coils, which generate a raw form of electricity. The engine must maintain a constant speed of 3,600 rotations per minute to produce AC power. In other words, it must run at full speed, regardless of the load needed, consuming more fuel and generating more noise.

The electricity produced isn't as clean as utility power. Therefore, standard generators are NOT recommended to power sensitive electronics like computers.

Inverter generators, however, utilize a different type of alternator to generate very clean AC power. The inverter technology reduces the generator's size and weight. But more importantly, the engine can run at varying speeds, significantly reducing the noise levels and fuel consumption.

Is there a benefit to a LP generator compared to a gasoline generator? I think most portable generators are gasoline.
Donald Perlman 
from New York 
September 09, 2013
Answer
The only benefit that customers feel are necessary would be fuel storage where they are more comfortable storing many small LP tanks or having one large LP tank vs. storing gallons of gasoline.

They are similar as far as fuel consumption to cost goes but the one major disadvantage with LP is when the temperature goes below 40 degrees F. When it gets colder you end up losing LP volume within the tank and if you have outages in the winter this could be an issue. This does not happen with gasoline.

Can the LP3250 be converted to run off natural gas instead of propane?
Kevin Rohrbacher 
from New York 
June 20, 2013
Answer
The Generac LP3250 burns propane to generate electricity. The unit is fed by a 20 - 30# propane tank.

Runs solely on propane and has no option to run on NG (Natural Gas).
+
Jim; Is there a battery start for this LP3250? Recoil is not always easy for us older folks. We can connect and read gauges but pulling the cord can be a problem. Any suggestions?
Al Banker 
from Florida 
January 13, 2013
Answer
Sorry, Generac currently does not offer an electric start model that operates on LP gas.

A recommendation would be the Winco Tri-Fuel generators which are all electric start.

Tri-Fuel Generators

These units do cost more but with the capability to operate on 3 different fuel types they are extremely flexible and are all electric start.

Is this unit legal in California? (Genrac LP3250)
Jim Reynolds 
from California 
August 31, 2012
Answer
I'm sorry, but no. This unit is not currently CARB certified and cannot be shipped to California.
+
How much would be the run time for a 100 watt load? Does the generator overheat after a number of hours of operation? Thanks
Ricardo Flores 
from Texas 
August 11, 2012
Answer
Generac does not test their units for small load run times so we do not have a number to provide you. They do list this unit as being able to run for 9 hours at half load output.

This unit will need to cool for a short time when changing fuel and the oil will need to be checked and topped off as needed.

Please review the owner's manual for extended run time requirements.

I am interested in the generac LP 3250 for my sump pump in case the electric goes out as it did last year? Is this enough power for that? Thanks
Donna 
from New York 
July 17, 2012
Answer
This unit should be suitable to power most sump pumps on the market these days. The key will be for you to determine the power consumption of the pump. If you can locate the product information on your pump, it should list how many amps the unit needs to operate (typically 6-8). Sometimes this is located within the owners manual, others it is located on the unit itself. This generator delivers 14 amps @ 240v. So long as this threshold is not exceeded, you will stay nice and dry.
+
Can this unit connect to a 100 gal tank?
Mike DeCosta 
from New Jersey 
July 12, 2012
Answer
Generac sets these units up for use with a 20 or 30# tank, however, if you have the appropriate connection, volume and you monitor the generator while in use you should have no problems using a 100 Gallon tank.

The key will be during extended run times you will want to check the oil often and change or fill if necessary.
+
Jim, Did not see the answer to a customers question about CARB compliance. So, is this generator available to California customers (it is listed under your CARB generators). Thanks
David Cantu 
from California 
July 04, 2012
Answer
No, the Generac LP3250 - Model 6000 is not CA CARB Compliant and cannot be shipped there. It is 49 state compliant only. Sorry.

Jim, does a portable LP Generator need to be grounded? I plan to purchase and use one only during power outages and then store again. No permanent mount.
Ricard Veilleux 
from Connecticut 
June 29, 2012
Answer
All portable generators are required to be grounded to an earth ground for safety. This information is found in the owner's manual available on the website under the specs link.

Can you switch gas generator to LP?
Rick 
from South Carolina 
August 27, 2011
Answer
The Generac LP3250 burns propane to generate electricity. The unit is fed by a 20 - 30# propane tank.

Runs solely on propane and has no option to run on gasoline.
+
Jim, thanks for your answer on the LP3250 for California emissions. Out of curiosity, do you happen to know the sound level of the LP3250 at 1/2 and full load? It's not on the spec sheet. Also, with the unit being backordered, do you charge my credit card when I place the order or when you ship out the unit? Thanks. --DR
David Rosing 
from California

Answer
Unfortunately, not all generator manufacturers publish the decibel ratings for their generators. Currently, there are no industry standards or requirements for generator manufacturers to follow when testing their generators for noise. Due to this, manufacturers can test the noise level under any conditions they choose and, therefore, the results are not very reliable as each company will test under conditions that are favorable to their products. At this time there are no db(A) ratings available on this model.

We do not charge your credit card until the order ships.
