Q: Can this run off the 20lb tanks that we use for BBQ? I see that you say it can run off any size tank in a previous question but I am not sure that it can connect right to the BBQ tanks.

I am looking for a portable generator that could run even just our heating system. My electrician had shown me the generac models, but I am not sure if that is safe with my Quietside burner. I looked throughout that manual but I don't see anything about THD in it. Last year when my area lost power we couldn't even buy gas for our cars so I was trying to find another alternative.

by Daniel Reich from New York on August 09, 2013

A: These units "cannot" be used with a 5 gallon (20#) propane tank.

Here are the tank requirements from the owner's manual which are based on temperature (Found on Page 7)...Owner's Manual Link Below....

HPS9000VE

60 Deg. F - 70 gal.
30 Deg. F - 80 gal.
0 Deg. F - 200 gal.
-20 Deg. F - 7000 gal.

Q: Winco HPS9000VE......I currently have a Weber natural gas barbeque being fed by 50 feet of 3/4" CSST Flexible Tubing. If I disconnect the barbeque and connect this generator will it receive enough pressure to operate properly?
by Howard Rubenstein from New Jersey on July 20, 2013

A: Page 6 of the owner's manual, available on our site under the specs tab has the following chart....

Size of pipe required for generators operating on natural gas/
LP gas.

-Length of Fuel Line* Fuel Line Size
-Less than 25 feet 3/4 inch black pipe
-25 to 100 feet 1 inch black pipe
-over 100 feet not recommended**

*allow an additional 3 feet for each standard elbow. Do not
use ‘street ells’ (restrictive)

** Consult factory for fuel runs over 100 feet.

The manual also lists specific requirements for fuel regulation and the use of fuel regulators.

We recommend consulting the owner's manual and a certified plumber for proper installation.

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: Will this generator (HPS12000HE) deliver full rated power while operating on Propane?
by Joseph Smith from New York on January 21, 2012

A: Per page 3 of the owner's manual you would Derate 10% for LP and 20% for NG.

This is true on all Winco Tri-Fuel models.

Owner's Manual

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: What is the LP gas line in pressure required to run this generator.
by Joseph Smith from New York on January 21, 2012

A: Correct fuel pressure cannot be stressed enough. The most common cause or inoperative systems is an inadequate or incorrect fuel pressure.

Power and performance of the engine is in direct relation to the correctness of the fuel system.

There are several fuel delivery systems mentioned in the owner's manual and should be referred to when connecting system.

Whichever fuel delivery system or type of vapor fuel used, the fuel pressure at the demand regulator installed on the engine generator must be between 4 and 6 oz. (7-11 inches of water column). Any lower pressure and the unit will starve for fuel under load. Any higher and the unit will ‘flood’ when attempting to start.

There is some very important LP tank sizing requirements in the owner's manual which needs to be reviewed.

Owner's Manual

by Mike, Product Expert
Q: I'm needing a home back up generator that I can also use for hunting camp. Can either the 5500 watt or the 8000 watt model be run of off 100lb and 20lb tanks? What is the LP consumption of both at half and full load?
by Jason Hyrczyk from Wisconsin on March 07, 2011

A: These units "cannot" be used with a 5 gallon (20#) propane tank.

Here are the tank requirements from the owner's manual which are based on temperature (Found on Page 7)...Owner's Manual Link Below....

Winco only lists the fuel consumption at full load. Please see link below to review the spec sheet which covers all their Tri-Fuel models.

From The Manufacturer
Hps9000ve
The HPS9000HE is EPA certified to run on natural gas, LP and gasoline. WINCO understands the need for reliable power, which is why we have equipped this generator with a Briggs & Stratton Vanguard commercial grade engine. The HPS9000HE also features a 7 gallon fuel tank, full receptacle package with circuit breaker protection, 100% copper windings, and has less than 6% total harmonic distortion which is safe for sensitive loads. Our multi-fuel generators are perfect for taking up to the... more

Winco Hps9000ve - 8,000 Watt Tri-fuel Generator W/ Electric Start B&s Vanguard Engine Review
I purchased this generator in early 1999 in prep for Y2K to power up my home in the event I lose power. I have it permanantly mounted in the basement with air intake and exhaust ducted to the outside. I installed an hour meter because I am anal about oil changes. This engine has run 25 hours in the 7 years I have owned it. This past October 12 Western NY was hit with a storm that knocked out power for a week. The run hours were doubled in two days. On natural gas, this generator takes a... more

Winco Hps9000ve - 8,000 Watt Tri-fuel Generator W/ Electric Start B&s Vanguard Engine Review
So far so good. Quick start in the gas mode, however I have yet to hook it up to propane yet. Used once so for about three hours, worked great. One thing to take note of, this unit does not idol down when power draw is low; the engine goes full bore at all times. If you want an engine that will idol down when not pumping out watts you should look at a Honda engine, which of course cost more. My father in law has a generator with a Honda engine; it power down when not dishing out watts,... more

I Depended On Product Reviews To Make My Choice
This is my first generator and I depended on reviews to make my choice. After opening the box and setting it up according to manual I connected it to my back in the woods garage and it started on second pull using gas, I will eventually move it over to LP(a friend advised me to break it in on gas before switching to LP). The first job I did was to resurface the cement floor of the garage with an EDCO machine and the generator worked perfectly for about 10 or 12 hours of work. If you request a... more

Thomas,
I apologize about any issues you had regarding the lift-gate service. It is extremely rare that a carrier would would have a 2 week wait for a truck with a lift. Your delivery was to a more rual area, so that may be what caused the delay.

Great And Flexible
This is an excellent generator, offering flexibility and reliance! The generator is very dependable and switching fuels is very easy. When I need to use it I start with gasoline and then switch to natural gas! Runs steady under varying loads and gets the job done! Highly recommend it to those who need a stand by option without the hassle of total built in unit.
Pros: Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable, High Quality

I Like It
I have only had the generator for a few weeks and run it for a short period to check it out. Seems well built and started right up. I am disappointed with the wheel kit.

While the kit is well made too, it does not fit the generator well. Looks like the dimensional specs don't match. The wheels are tight against the frame and rub, so it's hard to move around.

Also the frame bolts for the front foot are not long enough and barely allow the nut to thread on. EGD needs to do some checking... more
