smarter tools generatorThe Smarter Tools ST-GP7500DEB is a 7500-watt generator which has received glowing reviews on Amazon.com and Home Depot.  This generator sells in the $800 to $1,000 range, which is comparable to the cost of many other similar models by other brands.  This dual-fuel generator offers a lot of flexibility in a reasonably priced package, which made me interested in writing a Smarter Tools GP7500 review of my own.  Here is what I discovered.

 

Smarter Tools ST-GP7500DEB Design

The GP7500 is instantly recognizable in its black and bright green roll case.  The product weighs 193 pounds (pay no attention to the incorrect shipping weight listed in Amazon).  It was not designed primarily as a portable generator, but with the addition of wheels (the kit is included!), you can move it around with ease.  You can get the wheels installed in about five minutes, which is awesome!  This is a dual-fuel generator, not a tri-fuel generator; you can power it with either propane or gasoline.  Switching between fuels is effortless. This is truly one of the best duel fuel generators on the market.

 

Power Output and Noise Level

Electric start works great and gets this generator fired right up.  The GP7500 puts out a good amount of power, and you should have no problem carrying a full load with all the major appliances in your house.  I was able to run the fridge and freezer, a big screen television, a console, and a ceiling fan without a problem (along with all my lights).  It ran quietly, which was another major plus.  Even if I had to use this generator for days, the noise level would not become annoying.  The whole time I was running it, there were no problems, and I would feel confident in its reliability.

Note that a lot of customers who purchased the generator through Amazon.com reported problems with shipping.  I was fortunate enough not to have anything damaged, but one thing I noticed consistently while reading other customer reviews was that customer service over at Smarter Tools is very responsive if you need help with your generator.  Make sure you check your generator before there is an emergency!  Even with a great unit like this, there are no guarantees.  Shipping problems are common!  There is a two-year limited warranty on the Smarter Tools GP7500, but there is no reason to wait two years to contact customer service if you need to.

 

Conclusion

On the whole, the GP7500 by Smarter Tools is a very exciting generator.  For a reasonable price, you can easily power a full load, and the dual-power options make it a piece of cake to switch between propane and gasoline as needed.  The wheel kit is a great extra, and the fact that it is included with the price is fantastic.  A lot of companies make you pay extra for wheels and make installation a challenge.  This generator would be an ideal source of backup power for emergencies at home, but thanks to the inclusion of the wheels, it is portable enough to take to a remote site.  A versatile machine with outstanding reviews, the Smarter Tools ST-GP7500DEB is well worth your consideration!
