As the XP12000EH and the XP12000HX 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 XP12000EH compare to the DuroMax XP12000HX.

  • 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 XP12000EH and the DuroMax XP12000HX share the same running wattage of 9500W, they will both allow you to simultaneously power the same appliances. In addition, as the 2 generators have the same starting watts (12000 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 XP12000EH enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the XP12000HX. It can deliver power for around 9 hours, whereas the XP12000HX will be able to power your appliances for around 8.8 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.94 GPH (gallon per hour), the XP12000HX is less fuel efficient than the DuroMax XP12000EH with its 0.92 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former.
  • Noise: With 72 dBA, the noise emitted by the XP12000EH is slightly lower than the 74 dBA of the XP12000HX. While this difference could seem insignificant, the former should still 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 224 lbs, the XP12000EH is slightly less heavy than the XP12000HX (which weighs 230 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: With a total of 7 AC outlets, the XP12000HX offers more AC receptacles than the XP12000EH, 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 XP12000EH's and the XP12000HX'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 XP12000HX 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.
