The 80 cc Firman Max-Pro Series OHV 4-stroke engine powers the Firman P01202. It has a 120V output, runs on gas, and has a running wattage of 1,200W and a peak wattage of 1,500W. This generator has a noise level of 64 dBA, which is just a little louder than background music. It starts up with a traditional pull-start mechanism. With a 1.7-gallon fuel tank, the P01202 can run at 0.5 load for about 10 hours on a full tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.17 GPH). The P01202 can’t be used to power sensitive electronics because its THD is quite high (25%).
The control panel has two AC outlets for the following: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).Also, it has 1 DC outlet: a 12V 8A receptacle that looks like a cigarette lighter.This makes it easy to charge your batteries.
The generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it easy to see at a glance how much gas is in the tank.For safety, the generator has an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, so you can use it without worrying.The Firman P01202 comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual to help you start the generator quickly.It also comes with a tool kit, funnel, oil, and cables for charging the battery.
The Firman P01202 has a standard, open frame that measures L17.5 x W14.2 x H15 in, This frame gives it support and lets it be raised off the ground.This type of design is great for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.The P01202’s dry weight of 55 pounds lets you take it anywhere you need to.The generator is also easier to pick up and move around because its frame is open.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Firman-P01202 compare to other generators with the same power output.
**Fuel efficiency is give in relative percentage, 0 being the lowest and 1 being the highest value. Please see below specification table for actual value.

- We compared more than 500 portable generators at 50% load. We found that there is “skewed right” distribution for the difference between 50% load and 25% load and the median comes at 1.43. With this number we converter all the 25% load runtime to 50% load. Same with the propane efficiency, where median is 1.38.
- For some generators where propane runtime was not given, we used NIST 1994 GGE (Gasoline Gallon Equivalent) formula: 5.66 lbs. of propane = 1 gal of gasoline. All propane runtime is for 20 lbs. propane tank (4.7 gallons).
- Unlike many other sites, we actually tried to find out information about each of the above requirements. However, we are human and are therefore capable of the odd oversight or mistake. Please let us know if you spot any missing or erroneous values so that we can fix them.
About the Manufacturer
Firman Power Equipment is a business with a recent but reputable history in the power equipment sector.It was founded in 1999.The Arizona-based business provides a vast array of goods, including power tools, automotive equipment, storage items, work clothing, but its assortment of generators of different shapes, sizes, and outputs stands out above the rest.Interestingly, Firman serves as a de facto distributor of China National Machinery Industry Corporation’s goods in the US and is a fully owned subsidiary of that business.
A warranty covers the Firman P01202 for up to 3 years.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Check out Firman’s warranty policies if you want to know more about the warranty on a Firman generator.You can also call their customer service line at 1-844-FIRMAN1 (844-347-6261).
