Subaru Upgrades Generator Line

Subaru Industrial Power Products has upgraded its line of commercial-grade SGX generators with a larger fuel tank, no-flat tires and larger mufflers. The generators feature a new blue and silver look to coordinate with the company’s automotive division. 

web subaru SGX3500-NewThe SGX line, which includes the SGX3500, SGX5000 and the SGX7500E, features the technologically-advanced Subaru EX Series overhead cam engines and use 100 percent copper windings to improve conduction and maximize surge capacities. Stators now come with a full varnish dip for a stronger bond than the previous dripped-on applications. This provides better coverage in all the crevices for better winding protection from movement, moisture and debris.

  • The SGX3500 delivers a maximum output of 3,500 watts, and it features Subaru’s EX21 7-hp engine and a 4-gallon fuel tank for a total run time of 8 hours at the rated load.
  • A 9.5-hp EX30 engine powers the SGX5000, which offers a maximum output of 4,900 watts and 8-gallon tank for continuous run time of 10.7 hours at the rated load.
  • The SGX7500E features a 14-hp EX40 engine that provides a maximum output of 7,500 watts and 8-gallon fuel tank to provide 7 hours of operation at the rated load. This SGX7500E also includes an electric starting system with recoil backup.

The control panel includes and upgraded hour meter showing total operating hours even when the unit is not running. The engine on/off switch is now mounted on the control panel for easier access and has a protective cover. 

Low-tone mufflers are nearly double the size of previous models, so the tonal quality of the unit during operation is smooth and clean, and include U.S. Forest Service-approved spark arrestors. Wheel kits with two no-flat tires offer enhanced portability and save  time and money by eliminating checking, inflating, repairing or replacing tires.

All SGX models incorporate an automatic voltage regulator system that provides precise voltage control output for more sensitive equipment and electronics, a low-oil-level sensor with automatic shutoff to protect the engine from damage, and an easy-to-read fuel gauge.
