As the XP5500EH and the XP5500HX 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 XP5500EH compare to the DuroMax XP5500HX.

  • 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.
  • Power: As both the DuroMax XP5500EH and the DuroMax XP5500HX share the same running wattage of 4500W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (5500 W), they will both give you the same boost needed to start the motor of your most demanding appliances.
  • Runtime: When running at a 50% load, the XP5500EH enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the XP5500HX. It can deliver power for around 9 hours, whereas the XP5500HX will be able to power your appliances for around 8.9 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.45 GPH (gallon per hour), the XP5500HX is less fuel efficient than the DuroMax XP5500EH with its 0.44 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former.
  • THD: Neither the DuroMax XP5500EH nor the DuroMax XP5500HX has a THD low enough to allow you to safely power your sensitive electronic devices (respectively <12% and <12%).
  • Noise: Both devices have a noise rating (lower limit) of 69 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

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 124 lbs, the XP5500EH is slightly less heavy than the XP5500HX (which weighs 128 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 XP5500EH and the XP5500HX both offer 3 AC outlets. They also both feature GFCI outlets. Both of them also feature a DC output. However, the XP5500HX does not provide an out-of-the-box USB connectivity. 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 XP5500EH's and the XP5500HX'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 DuroMax XP5500HX benefits from a welcomed additional security feature: its CO Alert technology monitors carbon monoxide and automatically shuts off the generator if the ambient levels become unsafe.
