Subaru’s two new compact generators have enough surge capacity to take on up to 150 percent of the rated power for as long as 20 seconds. The RGX3000 is powered by Subaru’s 6-horsepower EX17 engine. The unit delivers a maximum output of 3,000 watts (2,400-watt standard output rating) and offers 10.3 hours of continuous operation. The RGX3800 delivers a maximum output of 3,800 watts (2,900-watt standard output) and its 7-horsepower EX21 engine can operate continuously for 9.5 hours. Automatic idle lowers the engine speed when no electrical power is needed, reducing fuel consumption and noise.
