A 193 cc Firman Max-Pro Series OHV 4-stroke engine powers the Firman W03382. It has a 120V output, runs on gas, and has a running wattage of 3,300W and a peak wattage of 3,650W. Also, since it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a Firman parallel kit), this power can be increased by connecting it to another unit that works with it. The inverter generator has both a simple pull-start mechanism and an electric starter that is easy to use (battery included). It has a noise level of 58 dBA (The noise level is lower than that of a refrigerator). With a full tank, the W03382 can run for up to 10 hours (using about 0.18 GPH of fuel). This is because it can hold 1.8 gallons of fuel. The W03382 makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion of 3%, so it is safe to plug sensitive electronics into the AC outlets (THD).
The control panel has 3 AC outlets: a duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) outlet, a 120V 30A (TT-30R) outlet, and a 120V 20A (TT-20R) outlet.Also, it has 2 DC outlets: a 12V 8A receptacle that makes it easy to charge batteries, and a 5V USB port that makes it easy to charge devices like cell phones and tablets.This Firman generator is ready for an RV because it has a TT-30R (TT stands for “Travel Trailer”) receptacle.
The W03382’s control panel includes a handy meter that displays voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours to make it easier for you to keep track of the device’s state and activities.The light indications also let you know if the oil level is too low, the generator is overloaded, or the generator is ready.This device has an automated low oil shut-off and an overload safeguard (circuit breaker) for your safety, so you can use it with complete assurance.The Firman W03382 comes with a few extras in addition to the standard paperwork and an owner’s manual, including a battery charger, oil, battery charging cables, funnel, and tool kit.
The encased inverter generator design of the Firman W03382 (L23.2 x W17.8 x H17.9 in) makes it look better than any ordinary open frame product.The design fits with what’s popular now and is perfect for generating power for fun.The W03382 is 91 pounds, which means you can take it anywhere.It can also be moved easily thanks to its set of two wheels (dia:5 “) 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-W03382 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 W03382 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).
