Review: Sportsman GEN7500D Portable Generator
Sportsman GEN7500D: Introduction
Gas-powered and propane-powered generators have always had their distinct advantages over the other–which is good. For one, it brings a rich diversity into the backup genset market. Secondly, the existing dynamic also helps to keep the industry’s steady progression. In fact, there’s no denying how both machines have earned their well-deserved their respective place in today’s generator market. Which tells me that none of the two is going away anytime soon. In fact, the Sportsman GEN7500D Portable Generator is even bringing them together. Therefore, putting itself in prime position to lead the new breed of portable generators in the market for many years to come, Here’s our review of the Sportsman GEN7500D Portable Generator.
Sportsman GEN7500D: Features
The best safety feature of the GEN7500D is arguably the GFCI protection. Which serves as the circuit breaker that protects the user from electrocution if the electrical current finds an alternate path. After all, electricity always takes the path of least resistance.
So if wires become frayed or wet, this can provide an alternate path for the electricity to reach the earth–which in some unfortunate cases, can be through the operator’s body. The average circuit breaker only protects outlets from overloading, which only protects the generator and the appliances. GFCIs detect when the current has found an alternate path and shuts off the generator before it can hurt you.
The Sportsman GEN7500D packs a powerful 7HP, 4-stroke OHV, air cooled engine. Though, the real catch, of course, is the dual-engine functionality of the generator. The ability to switch from propane to gas makes the portable generator a perfect unit for businesses, establishment, and households who are in need of a truly reliable backup power source during emergencies.

Sportsman GEN7500D: Verdict
Since it can use gasoline or propane, though not at the same time, the ability to acquire fuel in an emergency is considerably much greater than it would be with single-source generators. It’s also worth noting that gasoline is easy to acquire for regular usage, but it can be very difficult to get during a power outage because gas stations require electricity to pump gas. Meanwhile, propane is relatively easier to acquire, even despite blackouts. Though, it does pose some challenges in ergonomics and logistics.
Nevertheless, the Sportsman GEN7500D Portable Generator is part of its manufacturer’s promising line of equipmen that people should really look out for in the years to come.
