Craftsman CMXGIAC3000 – Portable 3000 Watt Gasoline Inverter Generator

Portable generators are awesome back-up gadgets to have around, as they ensure you can stay comfortable and prepared during any emergencies, and that goes especially for situations like power outages. With a portable generator, you can easily keep your campsite’s lights running or even keep some of the electronics at home (like a heater or a air conditioner) working at a reasonable power efficiency, especially during a blackout. Overall, generators are easy to use, and ultimately, they can offer other devices a quick and automatic supply of power, thus allowing homeowners to operate just about any electric-powered devices within their homes in an easy manner during any unexpected emergency. In sum, having a portable generator allows you to supply power to heating and/or cooling systems, TVs, computers, and many other appliances, meaning that homeowners can ultimately maintain both reasonable comfort and safety levels at any time. So, if you’re on the market for a new generator for your home or even to take with you while exploring the outdoors, then look no further. Meet the Craftsman CMXGIAC3000.

The Craftsman CMXGIAC3000 is a portable high-performance 3000 Watt gasoline inverter generator that features an ultra-quiet operation and an advanced Power Boost Technology can offer you a boost of power with 50 percent more starting capacity.

Additionally, this portable 3000 Watt inverter generator also features a Clean Power Technology that makes it ideal to use for powering up any sensitive electronics. Last but not least, its Control Panel comes equipped with tons of power ports and a few cool functionalities.

All that makes the Craftsman CMXGIAC3000 the perfect on-the-go solution for camping, tailgating and other outdoor activities.

So, without further ado, let’s have a more detailed look at this portable high-performance 3000 Watt gasoline inverter generator and check out everything that it has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the unit’s size, this portable inverter generator comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 22 inches long by 13.3 inches wide by 18.4 inches tall, and it weighs exactly 60 lbs.

However, despite its somewhat bulky weight, you really have nothing to worry about when it comes to carrying the generator around, as the device also comes equipped with a built-in Carrying Handle that allows you to easily carry it with just one-hand for easy portability.

In addition, there are also four (x4) highly-durable foot-stands (one at each corner) that ensure the generator can stay nice and stable at all times on any type of surface, even when having it set up on slightly uneven ground.

Now, onto its main internal components. I’d like to start by noting that this portable inverter generator is powered by a 80cc OEM Engine, which is powerful enough to offer you a reasonably long run-time of reliable power. Nevertheless, while the generator’s 80cc OEM Engine is fairly powerful, this inverter generator still features a ultra-quiet operation, as mentioned earlier, so you don’t really have to worry about disturbing anyone in the neighborhood.

As noted before, this generator combines two different technologies, which are an advanced Power Boost Technology that makes the generator capable of offering you a boost of power with 50 percent more starting capacity than when most other generators on the market, thus allowing you to do more with smaller electronic devices, as well as a Clean Power Technology that makes it ideal to use for powering up any sensitive electronics.

For its starting mechanism, this generator features a Pull Starting System, with an AC Maximum Output Starting Watts value of 3000 Watts. Ultimately, the generator’s engine features an AC Rated Output Running Watts value of 2300 Watts and a Running Watt Range that can go up to 3000 Watts.

Now, as stated before, this portable inverter generator works solely with gasoline, featuring a Maximum Fuel Capacity of 1.06 Gallons (4.01 Liters), with a Full Load Fuel Consumption of around 2.85 gallons per hour.

All and all, users can get around 4.5 hours of runtime at 50% of the generator’s engine’s Rated Load.

Note that this generator works specifically with Synthetic 5W30 Oil, and features a maximum Oil Capacity of 0.9 Quarts. On a side note, keep in mind that you should change its oil after around one hour of having the device running (and that’s exactly what the company recommends).

Last but not least, this inverter generator also comes accompanied by a couple of Safety Certifications, including a CARB Compliant Certification as well as a CSA Safety Listing Certification.

INTERFACE / CONTROL PANEL

Now, moving on to the generator’s Control Panel, the Craftsman CMXGIAC3000 features a very simple, intuitive, and very easy-to-use interface. Overall, the generator’s Control Panel’s design is quite clean.

In sum, we have a total of four (x4) Power Outlets, including one (x1) 120V 20A 5-20R duplex, one (x1) 120V 30 A L5-30R Twist Lock, and two (x2) USB Power Outlets / Charging Ports that can be used to recharge any USB-enabled devices, including Smartphones, tablets, and other USB-enabled electronics.

Additionally, we also have a set of Status Lights that help to keep users informed about the generator’s current status and its current running mode.

In addition, we also have a Start / Stop / Choke Dial that can be used for easily Starting / Stopping / Choking the generator.

There’s also an Economy Mode Button that can be turned On to have the generator running on its “Eco-Mode”, meaning that you can have it using slightly less fuel and producing reasonably less sound.

Last of all, the generator’s Control Panel also integrates a set of Parallel-Ready Cable Connectors, meaning that this generator also allows users to connect two inverters together for twice the power (note that the parallel kit is sold separately).

NOTABLE SAFETY FEATURES

Automatic Voltage Regulation

The Craftsman CMXGIAC3000 also features an Automatic Voltage Regulation functionality, and as such, depending on your electrical demands, the generator’s voltage output will vary / change automatically.

Automatic Low Oil Level Shutdown

Best of all, this inverter generator also features a Automatic Low Oil-Level Shutdown safety function, for which the generator is capable of automatically shutting itself down if the device ever detects that its oil levels are low.

FINAL THOUGHTS

The Craftsman CMXGIAC3000 is a portable high-performance 3000 Watt gasoline inverter generator that features an ultra-quiet operation and an advanced Power Boost Technology can offer you a boost of power with 50 percent more starting capacity.
