The Predator 4400 has a gasoline-powered OHV 4-stroke engine with 223 cc and 6.5 hp. It has a 120V output and a running power of 3,500W and a peak power of 4,400W. Also, since it can work in parallel (but doesn’t come with a parallel kit), its power can be increased by connecting it to a second unit that works with it. The pull-start mechanism on the inverter generator is simple and old-fashioned. It has a noise level of 67 dBA (quieter than a regular conversation). Due to its 3.2-gallon fuel tank, the 4400 can run for up to 16 hours on a full tank (it uses about 0.2 GPH of fuel per hour). As the 4400 makes a clean sine wave with a Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 3%, you can safely plug sensitive electronics into the AC outlets.
The control panel has 5 AC outlets: Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes and a 120V 30A (L5-30R) outlet.It also has 2 DC outlets: there are two 5V USB ports (USB-A) that make it easy to charge devices like cell phones and tablets.This Predator generator isn’t quite RV-ready, but it has an L5-30R receptacle that makes it easy to hook it up to an RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adapter (included).
The lights will let you know when the generator is overloaded, when it is ready to go, and when the oil level is too low.The inverter generator has a built-in fuel gauge, which makes it quick, easy, and convenient to check how much gas is in the machine.When it comes to safety, this product has a circuit breaker for overheating and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without any worries.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 4400 comes with a funnel, a tool kit, and an RV adapter, as well as the usual paperwork and an owner’s manual to get you up and running quickly.
The Predator 4400 is made with a typical open frame that gives it support and stability and lets it be raised above ground level.The device was made to work well in harsh conditions and in the great outdoors.The 4400 weighs 77 pounds, which means you can take it anywhere.The generator is also easier to move because it has an open frame, which makes it easy to grab and move.You can also buy the official wheel kit, which will make it easier to move this unit.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Predator-4400-58067 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.
