TIPS

These are some of the general tips you need consider when you buy this genset;

  •  Periodically start the machine if it is going to be unused for a very long time
  •  Put choke to off position when it starts
  •  Limitations of the genset; what it can and cannot run.
  • Always test your newly bought generator out before there is an emergency or the actual time of using. In that you will be  sure the machine works. If anything than that you can replace it before the warranty expires.

POWER

The LP3250 supplies 3,750 maximum watts and also 3,250 as rated or running watts.  The maximum power output is for start-up of devices.  The rated power output of 3,250 watts is enough to run these essential appliances in the home; security systems, mini-fridges, and computers.

RELIABILITY AND DURABILITY

The Generac LP3250 is powered by a 212cc Overhead Valve (OHV) engine, which gives an improved efficiency and increased reliability. With low-oil shutdown system the engine is prevented from any damage caused by low oil level. It also features splash lubrication and a high-performance alternator, ensuring that operation of your electrical devices is efficient and smooth. It also comes with covered outlets for added protection from the environment.

OPERATIONS

The LP3250’s fuel tank holder is compatible with 20- and 30-pound LP fuel tanks (sold separately), and the tank connects to the generator via a conveniently located fuel line. A 20-pound tank provides up to 9 hours of runtime, comparable to the runtime of similar-sized portable gas-powered generators. The 9.5 inch wheel kit with dolly-style handle and low grab bar makes this generator easy to move this generator.  The handle also locks down for compact storage.

Unfortunately, this model has been discontinued by Generac. Please take a look at the Generac GP3500iO model with a conversion kit instead if you want to use propane. It will provide just about the same power and efficiency.
