    This Series Sportsman 4000 Watt LP Generator can power common household appliances and power tools. It's equipped with two 120-volt outlets and a 12-volt DC outlet for battery charging. A Sportsman 4000-Watt Generator of this size is ideal for small camping, tailgating parties or to have on hand in case you need some temporary power in an emergency situation. It has a 7 HP, 4-stroke OHV, recoil-start engine. It's affordable, but well thought out with full-featured options such as automatic low-oil shutdown and automatic voltage regulator. It boasts an engine run time of 10 hours at 50 percent on a common 20-pound gas-grill type cylinder (LPG cylinder not included). A five-foot propane fuel hose with a regulator is included for your added convenience. The engine is surprisingly quiet, running at less than 68 dB.

    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 4.5 out of 5★ by 22reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Right size for the right job Right size for the right jobThe Buffalo Tools 4000 Watt LP Generator exceeded my expectation, the unit arrived as scheduled, but unfortunately, just one day after power was restored following Hurricane Irene. Worked great with the recent Noreaster. Setup was relativity easy. 20 fluid oz of SAE10W-30 oil must be added before operating this generator for the first time. This unit ships with no oil. Always ground the generator before use. Use a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) in highly conductive areas such as metal decking or steel work. GFCIs are available in-line with some extension cords. Attach the gas pipeline to GAS INLET and gas supply source 20lb LP tank standard grill tank. Turn the fuel valve to the "On" position. Move the choke lever to the "Closed/Choke" position. Slowly pull on the recoil starter handle, until a slight resistance is felt. Then pull briskly to start the engine. Gently return the cord into the generator to avoid damage to the starter or housing. To power sensitive electronic equipment such as TVs, DVD players, stereos, desktop computers or laptop computers the use of an appropriate line conditioner and/or surge protector is highly recommended. NEVER use a generator inside a home or a garage, EVEN IF the doors and windows are open. ONLY USE OUTSIDE and far way from windows, doors and vents leading into an enclosed area. Using a generator indoors can kill you in minutes. The generator produces an exhaust that contains carbon monoxide. This is a poison you cannot see or smell. Please be careful. One 20lb tank lasted approximately 7+ hours.This unit ran flawlessly for 5+ consecutive days with only a 2 -3 hour break each day.I was able to power the following simultaneously1 Refrigerator1 Freezer1 Well pumpSeveral lightsTVDVDAudio systemInternet75 gal aquarium filter and heaterI highly recommend The Buffalo Tools 4000 Watt LP Generator for anyone that has moderate to low power need for short periods. 11/04/2011
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Super Storm Sandy Proven I live in NJ. After Hurricane Irene (2011), I needed a generator to run household essentials in the event of another storm. This came just in time for Superstorm Sandy (2012). Followed directions to fill with 20 oz. SAE 10W-30 oil and it was ready for work (you'll need a funnel).ONE ISSUE... As propane is used, the tank temp lowers. If it's cold enough outside (in the 40's or below)... the tank will freeze up and the generator shuts down. Problem solved by keeping a reserve tank in the house. Love the fact I do not have to drain gas after use! 8-10 hours of power per tank.Unit is large enough to handle refrigerator, sump, furnace fan (forced hot air), chest freezer, TV and a couple low watt lights. Could also charge our phones and laptops as needed. If not hiring an electrician to connect to your panel, pick up 2 "Heavy Duty 12/3" extension cords and surge protective power strips. There is no 220 outlet. Just two 110 outlets capable of 15-20 amps each.As with all generators, be sure to properly ground and do not use indoors. Keep it out of the rain (use under cover or wait 'til the rain stops). Great product! 11/08/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★ by Satisfied so far.... Followed all instructions and she fired up in the third pull. Ran it under a load for 30 minutes and she purred right along. I am happy to find an LP generator at a reasonable price for use at home. It is a heavy unit so I may buy a wheel kit online.So far I'm satisfied. 05/17/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Nice generator best price around, shipped for free and they loaded it in the truck for me. started on the third pull. 05/20/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Arrived sooner than expected. Unpacked, added oil, hooked up propane. Unit started on first pull. Noticed price increased after I received it :-( 05/17/2013
    Rated 1 out of 5★ by Would Not Start This unit is a relabeled item, twice over, original manufacturer is in China, sold to Buffalo, then sold under the Walmart name. You are provided a support phone number when having issues(should not have any issues, its brand new)and the support is from Buffalo, after 5 separate calls to Buffalo, they blaming issues in shipping from China on the product. The last call made was an attempt to state the spark provided by the spark plug was inadequate(and they want to ship an alternate spark plug to my location, assuring the time frame to return for full refund expires)this after claiming they are the only 1 that can provide the correct spark plug for unit(odd also not mentioned in sales ad that they are only 1 able to provide replacement spark plugs for the unit).If the product was as advertised that would have been great(they market well)this unit will cost you time, money and headaches from the moment taken out of the box. 11/08/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Awesome great fit....wonderful quality.... 08/30/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by What a blessing!!! After years of owning gas generators and having them not working when I need them because of bad gas and gum up carboraters.. I finally broke down and bought a propane generator.. What a Blessing!! So easy to start. One or two pulls the most. I can let it sit forever and not mess with it and when I need it, it starts right up:) the 4000 sportsman powers my 26ft travel trailer. Air conditioning and all that comes inside my trailer.. Very quite and light weight compared to gas models.. I will never own another gas generator!! Propane all the way 03/04/2014
