This generator must be grounded to protect against electrical shock. A 3/4" or 1” copper pipe or rod must be driven into the ground close to the generator. The pipe/rod must penetrate moist earth – the depth required will be dictated by local soil conditions. Consult with an electrician to ensure the generator is grounded properly.

my 7000 does not come with a battery. but even though it has the 400 pluss cc engine it has an easy pull start. if your only going to use it 2 times a year it will require you to keep it in storage mode. meaning fuel stablizer and oil in the spark plug hole and an oiled rag in the exhaust. I just going to start mine every few weeks like the manuals suggests.

There are a few ways to ensure your battery is charged and ready when you need it. We do recommend starting and "exercising" the unit every 1-2 months. This will recharge the battery while the engine is running. If you are going to winterize the unit and only run 1-2 times a year, we recommend using a trickle charger. This will plug into any standard outlet and automatically keep the battery fully charged at all times. See links below for a few of our best sellers.

This generator has a decibel(dB) rating of 74. An accessory that will reduce the noise is not available for it. Click the link below to view a 5500 continuous watt inverter generator with a decibel rating of 60. It's the quietest 5500 watt unit Northern Tool carries.

Question

120v receptacles and 240v receptacle at the same time!

Can the 120v receptacles be active (in use) at the same time as the 30 amp 240 volt locking receptacle is active in use, all supplying power at the same time? What happens if the power draw from all receptacles combined is more than the max output for the generator?

Powerhorse Expert
This generator includes 240 and 120 volt receptacles that can be used simultaneously. The continuous/rated output of this generator is 5500 watts. Although it has a 30 amp plug, the max output from the 240 volt receptacle is 22.9 amps which equals 5500 watts. If your tools/items draw more power than 5500 watts, the respective circuit breakers will be tripped.

The Powerhorse Generators are not CARB compliant at this time, and cannot be shipped to California. See links below for a few models that are CARB compliant.

It is not mentioned in the book, but since it is not mentioned, i assume that means it is NOT CARB. Also, the link on amazon clearly states it is Not for sale in California..
