Find out in this review whether the Firman T07571 and T07573 tri fuel generators are good enough to be worth the investment.
First, a quick note is that the Firman T07571 and T07573 are basically the same besides an extra CO sensor, different visuals, and small price differences.
Firman T07573 review in short
The Firman T07571 and T07573 are good tri fuel generators overall.
However, there are even better tri fuel generators.
For example, the Champion 201169 8125 may offer fewer watts but is generally more reliable and budget-friendly than the Firman T07571 and T07573.
To run sensitive electronics, you likely want to go for the Champion 201176 9000 which is a tri fuel inverter generator.
- Tri fuel feature adds a lot of flexibility
- Good run time
- A lot of power
- 50 amp outlet
- Has electric start
- Higher THD is not suited for sensitive electronics

Firman T07571 & T07573 THD
The first thing to know about the Firman T07571 and T07573 is that their THD (total harmonic distortion) is generally too high for sensitive electronics.
In simpler words, the power these generators offer can damage electronics like your TV, phone, and potentially even refrigerator.
You can resolve this by getting your own inverter or other ways to “clean up” the power from the Firman T07571 and T07573.
Another option is getting an additional small inverter generator for your sensitive electronics.
You could also choose one of the few tri fuel inverter generators like the Champion 201176 9000 instead.
If you plan to run devices that don’t need low THD or you have your own way to clean up the power, you can go over the rest of the Firman T07571 & T07573 review.
What will the Firman T07573 run?
Even if you know how many watts the Firman T07571 and T07573 offer, it could be unclear what these mean in terms of appliances and tools.
When running on gasoline and propane, the Firman T07571 and T07573 will often not have a problem running even your bigger devices separately.
Due to the smaller watt capacities on natural gas, starting and running bigger things like a 4-ton central air and clothes dryer could be just a bit too much.
Besides that, THD issues aside, the Firman T07571 and T07573 offer enough power to run multiple smaller and medium devices at the same time.
For example, a table saw and a hot water heater should be no problem for these tri fuel generators.
At least if you use gasoline or propane and start these devices up in the right sequence.
It is often smart to check the more in-depth article on what a 7000 watt generator will run to make sure the Firman T07571 and T07573 are strong enough for you.
Firman T07573 run times
It is easy to find that the Firman T07571 and T07573 can run for 12 hours at 50% load on a tank of gasoline.
However, if you are interested in a tri fuel generator, you likely also want to have an idea of propane and natural gas run times for different quantities of fuel.
At half load, the Firman T07573 uses about 31ft³ /hr (3.2L/hr) of propane.
In simpler words, the Firman T07573 runs about 11.25 hours on a 40-lb propane tank at 50% load.
On natural gas, you will generally not have a certain run time limit.
However, it can be helpful to know that the Firman T07573 uses about 86ft³ /hr(2.4m³ /hr) at 50% load.
Firman T07573 customer reviews insights
Even if you like the features the Firman T07571 and T07573, you want to take a look at the customer reviews.
This is because the list of specifications does not give you an idea of potential high rates of technical issues.
In the case of the Firman T07571 and T07573, there are a few reviews where customers have technical issues.
At the same time, this is within reasonable limits so it looks like the Firman T07571 and T07573 are still relatively reliable.
Besides that, the suboptimal reviews mention the high noise levels and high THD.
These things are somewhat expected at this power level and for the typical tri fuel generator.
Firman T07573 alternatives
The Firman T07571 and T07573 are good tri fuel generators but they are not the only options on the market.
For example, the Champion 201169 8125 may be slightly weaker but is generally also more reliable and more budget-friendly.
Additionally, if you want an inverter tri fuel generator that is suited for running sensitive electronics, you will likely prefer the Champion 201176 9000.
You could also go for the Westinghouse wGen9500TFC instead of the Firman T07571 and T07573 if you want more power at a slightly bigger investment.
Is the Firman T07573 worth it?
In terms of the value you get, the Firman T07571 and T07573 can definitely be worth the investment.
Especially if you have trouble finding any other tri fuel generators during a power outage.
At the same time, it is worth noting that you will likely prefer some of the alternatives mentioned in this Firman T07573 review even slightly more.
