Will the 2100 model handle an air conditioner in a RV ??

Asked by: Marchaleeo
Depends on the BTUs of the air conditioner, what else is drawing power (like your charger/converter), altitude... Generally this size of Genny will struggle to start a 11500 to 13500 BTU Air conditioner but some folks have had luck, especially if they have installed a Hard Start Capacitor system on the AC.

Will this unit run a Trailer AC 13500 btu It’s rated at 1500 watts when running but wondering about startup

Asked by: Spencerr64
Hi, The W01781 is rated at 1700 running watts. You can do a quick calculation to determine the wattage output of the AC unit. Watts=Volts X Amps. I recommend moving up to our 3000 watt generator, possibly model W03083 which has a nice remote start. FIRMAN Friend

Can it operate a 15 amp wood splitter/

Asked by: Samuel56
This generator would be at the very top of its running watts. 120V X 15AMPS = 1800 watts. It would be best to move up to our 3000watt inverter

How long will this run at full usage?

Asked by: Cheetah625
Truth is most users never pump this bad boy at full load, it's usually getting 10-12 hours for majority of end users - it does depend on the application but the feedback so far has been very, very positive. Thanks for your questions - Big Country

Firman Whisper Series Gas Inverter Portable Generator - 1700/2100 W is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value inverter generator I bought this generator to power a 1500W heater and lighting during power outages at home. Usually starts after 4-5 pulls. Built quality is OK but the sound output is slightly louder than Honda eu2000 units, the only other inverter generator that I have experience using. Definitely a value buy at half the cost of Hondas and Yamahas. The included cover is a nice feature for storage in my dirty garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from W01782 1700/2100 Watt Inverter is perfect for our needs Over the past few months we have experienced 4 blackouts, some lasting up to 3 hours. I purchased the Firman W01782 inverter generator for emergency situations. The 1700/2100 wattage output this unit provides is perfect for our needs. We tested it on our home gas furnace system, refrigerator, microwave oven and all our electronics. The clean voltage this unit provides worked perfectly for all of our electronic equipment. (PC, Laptop, HDTV, DVR and Satellite Receiver) With winter and cold days just around the corner, it refreshing to know, that when we experience a blackout this winter we will have heat, lights and entertainment, etc., until the electric utility makes their repairs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from As the saying goes, you get way you pay for. I bought this generator on sale and it seemed like a "no-brainer". However, the unit I received had some over torquing on several screws for the case, which made the unit appear used. During operation, it surged or hunted in the RPM range when any load was applied. It was also quite loud at high load (90% or so). I couldn't overlook the surging RPMs, so I returned the unit. These problems could have been isolated to my unit as reviews seem very positive for this generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Generator for Ham Radio Operators I use this for my Ham Radio ventures, it's very RF quiet on HF and sips gas. Greatly outperforms Honda in this area and many others. It can run full output with no problem. Very clean output. The 12v plug is for charging lead acid batteries, don't use it for other things as the manual states. Has a cast iron sleeve and publishes its specs and every part used in the manual, unlike other manufacturers. Lastly, it's made in the USA, do your homework if your an HF operator! de KW4HQ

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible Value - Free Cover! Quiet, quiet quiet and a powerful little Inverter! Bought this gen the beginning of summer used it for a couple fishing trips, 7 weeks ago pulled it out for a power outage, bought the 3300 - connected them together and have been running them non-stop ever since - part of Halifax that got hit with Dorian and have had spotty service ever since, so we have been basically livng in our camper until we get a steady stream of service - This Firman has been a steady, reliable, and incredibly quiet stream of Power - their tech support team is the best, I was a little nervous connecting the two gen together - shouldntr have been - they walked me throughy it in 2 minutes and was off an running - with these two together could run what I need in my home but we are kind of enjoying the camper and maybe its a little retirement practice - im getting close - closer with these firman's running everything I need and more.... a/c now the heat (of course), fire place, microwave, we have a heated toiled and floor - yea thats great and it runs all that and my snore machine and cleaner, shoot - with eveything we have plugged in, has not slowed down for a hot second!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a whisper after all. I bought this a month ago for camping but the first time I used it after 2 hours of operation was a disappointment. It sure worked and charged my camper battery and all our electronics but it also gave me some ringing in my ear for the entire night. It is loud enough that you cannot carry a conversation while it's running. I paid full price of $799 but I think it's only worth half of it. I will definitely return it and do not recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starts easily, and o too heave I bought the generator to use with our travel trailer Nd wanted a generator that would be east to start and not too heavy. ELL this one took care of both my wants. After putting the oil in and gas in the tank I thought I would pull the cord to start it slowly to get the lubricant circulating. To my surprise it started on the second pull. So I’m off to a good start with this little generator.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a Honda! I like to go back woods camping by my self, my husband needs to know that I have a reliable generator. I like that it's light weight, quiet and has a 12 hr run time. I make my coffee and keep the camper battery charged with it. Also keeping me in touch with my family charging my phone. Doing all three of those things 1 tank of gas lasts me 4-5 days.
