The Pulsar PG2200 has a Ducar OHV 4-stroke engine with 98 cc and 3 hp that runs on gasoline. It has a 120V output and a running power of 1,600W and a peak power of 2,200W. This generator has a noise rating of 68 dBA, which is less loud than background music. It starts up with a simple pull-start mechanism. With a full tank, the PG2200 can run for about 12 hours at 0.5 load (using about 0.13 GPH of fuel). This is because it can hold 1.5 gallons of fuel.
The control panel has two AC outlets for the following: Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R).It also has 1 DC outlet with a 12V 8A output that makes it easy to charge your batteries.
The PG2200’s control panel has a handy voltmeter that lets you check the power output at any time.This is helpful for keeping track of its status and activity.In addition to this information, a light will show you 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.From a safety point of view, the product has an automatic shut-off for low oil and an overload protection (circuit breaker), so you can use it without worrying.Pulsar packed the PG2200 with the usual documentation and owner’s manual to get you up and running quickly, as well as a tool kit.
The Pulsar PG2200 is 18.3 inches long, 14.1 inches wide, and 16.5 inches high.Together with its traditional, open-frame design, they support the generator and allow it to be raised above the ground.This type of design is great for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.With a weight of 62 pounds, the PG2200 can be taken anywhere.Also, the open frame makes it very easy to grab the frame and move it.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.
The following charts show how some of the most important features of the Pulsar-PG2200 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
The California, USA-based Pulsar Products Inc.owns the trademark Pulsar.The company has a respectable selection of air compressors, pressure washers, and generators, which vary in power from 1,2 kW to 10 kW and come in dual fuel and RV-Ready models.The US is home to a number of Pulsar facilities, including two distribution centers, one in Illinois and one in California.However, it appears that Asia is where they outsource the production of their goods.
A warranty covers the Pulsar PG2200 for up to a year.This warranty may not cover all parts of the generator or may only cover certain parts.Pulsar generators come with a warranty that you can learn more about by calling Pulsar Customer Support at 1-866-591-8921.
