The Predator 2000 is made with a 79.7 cc OHV 4-stroke engine that runs on gasoline. With a 120V output, it has a running wattage of 1,600W and a peak wattage of 2,000W. Also, the generator can be connected to a second unit to make more power (the Predator Parallel Kit is not included). The noise level of the inverter generator is 58 dBA, which is less than a quiet suburb. It has a traditional pull-start mechanism. The 2000 can run for up to 12 hours on a full tank (it uses about 0.1 GPH of fuel per hour), thanks to its 1.2 gallon fuel tank. The 2000 makes a clean sine wave. With a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 5%, you can safely plug your sensitive electronics into the AC outlets.
On the control panel, there are two 120V 20A duplex outlets (5-20R).It also has 1 DC outlet: a 12V 8A receptacle that makes it easy to charge your batteries.
Several lights let you know when the generator is overloaded, when its oil level is too low, and when it is ready to use.The inverter generator has a built-in fuel gauge that makes it easy and quick to check the fuel level.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 Predator’s CO SECURETM carbon monoxide detector is also helpful for the unit.While the generator is running, this system checks how much CO gas is building up and turns off the engine if it gets too high.It’s a nice extra safety measure, but don’t forget to take your generator outside at all times.The Predator 2000 comes with the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual , which lets you start it right away.It also comes with a tool kit and charging cables for the battery.
The Predator 2000 is an inverter generator.It has a case that is L22.6 in, x W12.6 in, x H18.5 in, So, it looks better than most other products with open frames.The generator has a modern look and is easy to use when generating power for fun.The 2000 is called a lightweight portable generator because it only weighs 49 lbs.The power of the product can be used on the go, since it is easy for one person to move.Its case has a handle that makes it easy to carry.This makes it even more convenient.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Predator-2000-59135 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.
