The Ryobi RY908000E has a Ryobi OHV 4-stroke engine that is 420 cc. It gives out 120/240V, runs on gasoline, and has a running wattage of 8,000W and a peak wattage of 10,000W. The noise level of the generator is set at 73 dBA (Slightly louder than a shower). It has both a traditional pull-start mechanism and a simple but elegant electric starter (battery included). With a full tank, the RY908000E can run for about 10 hours at 0.5 load and 6 gallons of fuel (fuel consumption is approximately 0.6 GPH).
Two 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI duplexes and a 120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle are among the 5 AC outlets on the control panel.The RY908000E is ready for a transfer switch because it has a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle.If the power goes out, you can easily connect it to a breaker box and keep your home running.
The status and activity of the RY908000E can be easily checked on the control panel, which has a meter that shows voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours.From a safety point of view, the product has a circuit breaker for overload protection and an automatic shut-off for low oil, so you can use it without worry.The Ryobi RY908000E comes with basic instructions and an owner’s manual to help you start the generator quickly.It also comes with a tool kit and oil, among other things.
The Ryobi RY908000E has a standard, open frame that measures L35 x W29 x H24.5 in, This frame gives it support and lets it be raised off the ground.The design works well in rough places and for hard outdoor use.Even though this device is technically portable (meaning it can be moved), it weighs 197 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.
We could find any videos of the product at the time of writing. Please search YouTube for any update.

- 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.
