The Firman P05702 has a 389 cc Firman Max-Pro Series OHV 4-stroke engine. It has 120/240V, runs on gasoline, and has a running wattage of 5,700W and a peak wattage of 7,125W. This generator has a noise level of 74 dBA, which is just a little louder than a shower. It can be started with a pull-start mechanism or a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included). To make things even easier, the P05702 can be started from afar (key fob included). With an 8-gallon fuel tank, the P05702 can run at 0.5 load for about 12 hours on a full tank (fuel consumption is approximately 0.67 GPH). Due to its relatively high THD (25%), the P05702 can’t be used to power sensitive electronic devices.
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes, a 120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle, and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are on the control panel.Even though this Firman generator isn’t quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle makes it easy to connect to an RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor.The P05702 is also ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.You can connect it to a breaker box to power your home when the power goes out.
The P05702’s control panel has a handy meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.This helps you keep track of its status and activity.In addition to this, the featured light indicator will let you know when the oil level is too low.The generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it quick, easy, and convenient to check how much gas is in it.As for safety features, the device has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The Firman P05702 comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which lets you start it right away.It also comes with a tool kit, a key fob, oil, and a funnel.
The Firman P05702 is a traditional, open-frame generator with dimensions of L28.4 x W27.5 x H26.8 in, This gives the generator stability and lets it be raised above ground level.This type of design is great for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.Even though this device is technically portable (meaning it can be moved), it weighs 203 pounds and can be hard to move and use without special tools.Still, its wheel kit (dia:10 “) and its handle that folds up, once it’s on the ground.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Firman-P05702 compare to other generators with the same power output.

- 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 P05702 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).
