Generator Family Overview:
Combining durability with Subaru’s state-of-the-art inverter technology, portable inverter generators work hard and quietly. With three models to choose from ranging in output from 1,650 watts to 4,300 watts you’ll have the output you need to power anything from sensitive electronics to jobsite tools. Subaru's Auto-Power System adjusts the engine speed to meet your power requirements, allowing for greater fuel efficiency than competitive models. The inverter technology produces a clean sine wave, providing a safe alternative for operating sensitive electronic equipment. Equipped with a steel tubular frame and base, resin panels with sound absorbing foam lining, the inverter generators offer extreme durability along with quiet operation. Wheels on the larger models make is easy to transport, while the large, three layer steel fuel tank allows for longer run time between refills.

   Key Features & Benefits:
Control Panel User friendly control panel.
Indicator Lights Pilot lamp lights when generator is in operation. Other indicator lights for overload condition, low oil shutdown and when the Auto Power System is in operation.
Overload Protection Built in overload protection stops the output of power to the receptacles in case of an overload.
Low Oil Shutdown Engines incorporate a low oil shutdown that shuts off the engine when a low oil level is detected.
Auto Power System Auto Power System adjusts engine speed to meet power requirements. This reduces noise and increases fuel efficiency and engine life.
GFCI Receptacle GFCI receptacle helps ensure operator safety and is OSHA compliant.
Single Dial Control Single dial control allows the operator to choke and run the generator and turn off the fuel value with one dial for ease of operation.
12 Volt DC Battery Charging Subaru generators incorporate 12 volt DC battery charging capabilities for external battery charging.
Inverter Module Subaru's state-of-the-art inverter module provides clean and stable power for sensitive electronic equipment.
Embedded Heat Sensors Embedded heat sensors monitor the temperature of critical components and shut off the power output when an overload condition is detected.
Sound Attenuated Resin Panels Foam lined sound attenuated poly-resin panels fully enclose each inverter generator to ensure ultra-quiet operation. Large panels can be easily removed to check oil as well as remove spark plug for easy service.
Quiet Muffler with Spark Arrestor Subaru specifically designs each muffler to each engine, therefore providing optimum sound reduction.  Each muffler includes a US Forestry-approved spark arrestor.
Fuel Strainer Fuel strainer prevents debris from entering the fuel tank.
Washable & Reusable Air Cleaner Element Keeps engine running at optimum performance.
Inline Gas Tank Filter This special in-line gas tank filter protects the engine from harmful dirt. The fine mesh screen traps fine sediments that could clog the carburetor. Qualified dealers can refer to the service manual for removal, cleaning and replacement.
Subaru 2.4hp OHV Industrial Engine This unit is powered by a 2.4hp Subaru Industrial OHV engine that has features such as a forged steel crankshaft, cast-iron cylinder sleeve liner, dual ball bearings and more.
Thick Copper Stator Windings Heavy-duty copper windings ensure excellent performance and durability. They're able to withstand the heat and daily environmental conditions that affect performance and are varnish dipped to protect from moisture.
Strong Aluminum Base with Framework The R1700i is built for tough handling. Strong aluminum base with framework also protects the generator from damage.
