This ETQ Portable Generator uses a fuel-efficient propane engine that consumes only 1.5 lbs./hr. propane @ 50% load.
Utilizing clean-burning propane, the ETQ PG30P11 Portable Generator provides quiet, efficient, and cost-effective power to electrical appliances. You'll get the performance you need thanks to a seven-horsepower, 208-cc engine that produces up to 3,500 watts of energy--enough power to run your TV, refrigerator, water heater, or other household appliance. Great for power outages, light industrial applications, or recreational use, this generator connects to any standard-sized propane grill tank and has an oversized muffler for quiet operation.
All of the generator's outlets are circuit-breaker protected to safeguard your electronics. View larger.
The PG30P11 features a powerful, seven horsepower, 208-cc, four-stroke, propane-powered OHV engine that is capable of producing 3,000 continuous watts and 3,500 maximum watts. Its pull recoil makes for easy, reliable starts every time. And with a quick-connect coupler, it hooks up easily to any gas grill's propane tank (not included).
, this generator uses only 1-1/2 pounds of gas per hour under a 50-percent load, meaning you can enjoy your appliances for hours on end without worrying about your carbon footprint.
The engine isn't just powerful, it's also quiet. Thanks to its oversized muffler, the generator produces sound at just 65 decibels during operation, making it an ideal choice for camping.
Alternator Technology Safely Delivers Electricity to Your Appliances
One of the most innovative features of the PG30P11 is its ETQ Clean Sine Alternator Technology that ensures low total harmonic distortion (THD). THD is a measure of the quality of the electricity produced by a generator, and THD above six percent can damage electronics and other components over time. With THD of less than five percent, the PG30P11 ensures high-quality, safe delivery of electricity from the generator to your electrical components.
With low THD, this generator is computer-friendly, meaning it's completely safe to use with laptops, printers, desktop computers, and more. The PG30P11 will give you peace of mind knowing that your computer hardware is completely safe from power surges and bad-quality electricity.
3,500 Watts of Power to Handle Most of Your Household Electronics
The PG30P11 produces up to 3,500 watts of power to run most of your electrically powered household items. You can use the 120-volt, 20-amp GFCI protected dual outlet to power lamps, TVs, computers, fans, or other low-wattage appliances all at the same time. Or take advantage of the 30-amp outlet to power higher wattage electrical components and appliances. Both outlets are circuit-breaker protected for complete safety from power surges that can damage your appliances and equipment.
Heavy-Duty Steel Construction That's Built for Portability
Everything from the heavy-duty cast iron engine to the durable rolled steel tubing surround is built to last. Weighing 106 pounds and measuring just 25.5 x 21 x 19.5 inches (LxWxH), this generator is easy to move and store.
Propane Power is , Affordable, and Convenient
Propane is a clean-burning fuel that is better for the environment than regular gasoline. It's also very inexpensive and convenient to use. One propane tank can power both your propane gas grill and your PG30P11 Portable Generator; simply switch the quick-connect coupler and you're ready to go.
The ETQ PG30P11 LP Portable Generator is backed by a one-year manufacturer's warranty.

My generator now runs, so I have assured that power will _not_ go out!
Like most people who purchase this propane generator I was interested in something to keep the essentials going during power outages. While those are infrequent in my part of the Houston area, it only takes one. Propane is a more costly alternative to gasoline generators, but I didn't want to have to worry about gas going bad and carb issues.
After reading the reviews on this generator I was a little nervous about getting damaged goods and poor customer service. That being said, the generator arrived in excellent condition. Seems they have added a couple of red brackets to secure the bottom frame to the generator proper for shipping. These brackets don't allow the generator to wobble on the rubber dampers during shipping, but must be removed prior to use. I actually found the instructions fairly straight forward for Chinese translation. I did call customer service at Northern Tool to make sure I was supposed to remove the red brackets, as that was an add on instruction, less clear than most. Got a live body on the 2nd ring, who passed my call to maintenance. The gentleman had not realized that they were already shipping this item with the extra support brackets, but indicated they had been having problems with shipping damage. I then asked the guy how I could get a wheel kit for this generator, he transferred me right back to the customer service number where I was told one could could be ordered there. I had tried to contact customer service by email, but my message would not go through. The email link may be dead, but over the phone these folk have been pleasant and professional.
Easy to see how the plastic parts could bounce into the box and break during shipping without the new brace. Added oil, a small funnel helps, put the lever on choke, and only a short press on the prime button on top (not up to 2 seconds as instructions say)and generator started on the 3rd pull (don't forget to take it off choke once it gets started).
I've now run it for the 5 hours leading up to the first oil change. I don't anticipate any problems with that. Last week I warned my neighbor to expect noise as I broke in a generator, I let it run about 3 1/2 hours. The thing sounds much like my lawnmower, maybe not quite so loud. Later the neighbor said she had not noticed the noise at all. It starts easy, had my diminutive wife start it on her 3rd pull after showing her what to do. You do need to prime it after disconnecting from the propane source, and be gentle with the plastic choke lever. I can move it around well enough, but at just over 110 lbs., I'll order the wheel kit(a shame it is not part of the deal). That way the wife can handle it, and its easier to deal with when the engine is hot.
Now I just hope I don't need it. I can always take it to the boonies with my trailer.
As with the TG32P12, if you remove the 3 bolts holding the pull starter assembly, you can rotate the handle one or two positions counterclockwise to put it in a better position and reduce wear on the pull cord. The manual is vague about when to press the propane priming button, how long, and use of the choke. After trying them, the generator became impossible to start. I removed the air cleaner cover and let it sit for a short while, then pulled again and it started. To make sure it wasn't a fluke, I shut it down and restarted it with the same procedure. Unless you're using it in extreme weather, just open the choke fully and pull, and gradually close the choke as it warms up and the idle stabilizes.
The factory wiring of the control panel is less than ideal. Looking at the schematic in the manual, the 20A and 25A circuit protectors are wired in parallel, meaning that you can connect devices to both the L5-30 and GFCI receptacles and attempt to draw a combined 45A. You can correct this by wiring the generator hot/black to the 25A protector, and the L5-30 and 20A protector on the load side. Wire the GFCI hot/black to the load side of the 20A protector. If the L5-30 receptacle draws more than 25A, the 25A protector trips and both receptacles are shut off. If the GFCI receptacle draws more than 20A, the 20A protector trips shutting off the GFCI receptacle but the L5-30 receptacle is unaffected. You can wire the voltmeter to the two unused upper terminals of the GFCI receptacle. If either protector or the GFCI trips, the voltmeter goes to zero indicating a problem.
Nonetheless, a great little portable generator.
