An important and attractive feature of the control panel is the digital display. The benefit of this is that it gives owners information on total run time and remaining run time.
Two other LED bar-type gauges show a percentage of how much power is being used and indicate the fuel level. Various other LEDs are used for low oil level, maintenance, and the readiness status of the receptacles. There is also an overload reset button, and an Economy Mode switch which automatically adapts engine speed according to the load. This ensures maximum fuel economy, fewer emissions, and a prolonged engine life.
If the oil level falls below a specific point the generator automatically cuts out to protect the engine from damage. You won't be able to restart it until you have topped up the oil.
There are two 120v 20 Amp household outlets together with one 12v DC socket for use with the separately supplied dual port USB adapter.
There is no electric start option. But an EZ Start Dial is located next to the manual pull cord to simplify the starting procedure.
