As the XP13000EH and the XP15000EH are both DuroMax 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 DuroMax XP13000EH compare to the DuroMax XP15000EH.

  • Fuel: The 2 portable generators enjoy a dual-fuel technology, which allows them to run either on gasoline or propane, providing additional versatility and convenience.
  • Engine: The 713cc engine of the XP15000EH is significantly bigger than the XP13000EH's engine, which has a displacement of 500cc.
  • Power: With a running wattage of 12000 W, the DuroMax XP15000EH will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 10500 running watts of the DuroMax XP13000EH. Moreover, compared to the 13000 starting watts of the XP13000EH, the XP15000EH and its starting wattage of 15000 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 XP15000EH enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the XP13000EH. It can deliver power for around 9 hours, whereas the XP13000EH will be able to power your appliances for around 8.5 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.98 GPH (gallon per hour), the DuroMax XP13000EH is less fuel efficient than the XP15000EH with its 0.92 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former.
  • THD: Neither the DuroMax XP13000EH nor the DuroMax XP15000EH has a THD low enough to allow you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (respectively <12% and <12%).
  • Noise: With 74 dBA, the noise emitted by the XP13000EH is slightly lower than the 77 dBA of the XP15000EH. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L29" x W30" x H26", the DuroMax XP13000EH offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the DuroMax XP15000EH and its L30" x W33" x H35".
  • Weight: Weighing 234 lbs, the XP13000EH is much lighter than the 380 lbs of the XP15000EH.
  • 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.
  • Lifting Hook: Thanks to a lifting hook on the top of its frame, the DuroMax XP15000EH offers an easy way to safely load and unload it on the back of a pick-up truck.

Feature Comparison

  • Starting System: While you can get both devices running via a convenient electric starter, the DuroMax XP13000EH is the only one which benefits from an additional conventional pull-start mechanism.
  • Outlets: With a total of 7 AC outlets, the XP15000EH offers more AC receptacles than the XP13000EH, which has 5 AC outlets. Yet, they both feature GFCI outlets. The latter also offers a DC output. 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 XP13000EH's and the XP15000EH'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.
