The following is the All Power America APG3014 Review with 2,000 Watt 4-Stroke Gas Powered Portable Generator. Introducing the APG3014 generator model, an addition to the All Power America line. A portable and lightweight generator which is best seen used in camping or as a back-up in a power outage. With a max watts of 2000 watts and an about of 1400 this isn’t the strongest 4 stroke generator on the market but is still appreciable for the modest price. It’ll also run for 9 hours at 50% load which is a competitive rate for the others in the market. Read on for a more thorough description of the key features in this All Power America APG3014 review.
The running watts of a generator is the wattage output it exhibits. In order for the generator to power the tool or application it must be of lesser wattage than the generator itself. It’s very important to ensure that the figures match up before purchase as otherwise the generator may not be able to run the chosen appliance. Running watts can usually be found on some online documentation.
The running wattage of the All Power America APG3014 is 1400.
The starting wattage of an appliance is the maximum wattage output of the device. This is a necessary value to include as many appliances require an increase in wattage to be started up and the decrease to a lower value to maintain operation.

The dimensions for this rather portable generator are as follows:
L x W x H (in.): 18 1/8 x 13 3/4 x 14 1/2
My favorite feature of this portable generator is the ½ load run time. In the case of power outage this backup generator will provide you with power for 9 hours. That should be more than enough time for the emergency authorities to restore power to your area. Alternatively, this could also be used for fueling or cooking at a campsite and also delivers a satisfactory timeframe to accomplish whatever you need to.
The generator cover which frequently bought together with this generator is Classic Accessories Generator Cover. It builds from heavy-duty fabric coated for maximum water resistance and repellency. It helps to protect your generator from rain, snow, sun damage, dust, tree sap and birds.
Here are some of the most notable positive aspects which I felt deserved to be mentioned in this All Power America APG3014 review.
-At 50% load this generator has a run time of up to 9 hours which is plenty of time to power your appliances before needing to refuel.
-At 65db this shouldn’t make too much racket if you have it powered on at home.
-Rubber placement underneath device to stop it from moving and easy air filter is easily cleaned with wing nuts.
-Efficient pull start
-There have been numerous complaints that the generator cannot run at what has been advertised. Several customers have complained the generator has experienced major difficulty at operating devices near the 1200 watt range despite having a 1400 watt limit. Several customers have also complained that is has cut off at similar ranges.
-Purportedly larger than advertised.
-Purportedly not as powerful as advertised with one customer determining that the generator exhibited a 1300 watt running wattage as opposed to the advertised 1400.
This product received a 3.5 / 5 star rating based on 151 customer reviews.
The last thing I would like to touch on in this All Power America APG3014 review is price. Considering the power output and running time this is a very cheap portable generator. There are more powerful models on the market that exhibit higher degrees of versatility as well as maximum wattage but for a much higher price.
