As the DXGNR7000 and the DXGNR8000 are both Dewalt generators, they benefit from the same level of quality and attention to detail.

Power Comparison

The following charts are provided to show you at a glance how the main specs of the Dewalt DXGNR7000 compare to the Dewalt DXGNR8000.

  • Power: With a running wattage of 8000 W, the Dewalt DXGNR8000 will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 7000 running watts of the Dewalt DXGNR7000. Moreover, compared to the 8750 starting watts of the DXGNR7000, the DXGNR8000 and its starting wattage of 10000 W will give more power to start the appliances which require an additional boost to get their motor running.
  • Runtime: When running at a 50% load, the DXGNR7000 enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the DXGNR8000. It can deliver power for around 11 hours, whereas the DXGNR8000 will be able to power your appliances for around 9 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.83 GPH (gallon per hour), the DXGNR8000 is less fuel efficient than the Dewalt DXGNR7000 with its 0.68 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: As these two products share the same overall bulk, neither of them will really take up less storage space.
  • Weight: With a weight of 183 lbs, the DXGNR8000 is slightly less heavy than the DXGNR7000 (which weighs 192 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their maneuverability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: Both devices can be started either via a pull-start mechanism or an electric starter.
  • Outlets: The DXGNR7000 and the DXGNR8000 both offer 5 AC outlets. They also both feature GFCI outlets. In addition, it is worth noting that they can both produce either 120 or 240V. For more detailed information regarding all their respective receptacles, refer to the DXGNR7000's and the DXGNR8000's product pages.
  • Data Center & Fuel Gauge: Each of these 2 portable generators is equipped with a data center allowing you to conveniently monitor some aspects of the power output. Besides that, these 2 products are fitted with a fuel gauge allowing to see their fuel level at a glance.
  • Technology: The Dewalt DXGNR8000 benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Protect technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
