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 XP10000EH.

  • 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: With a running wattage of 9500 W, the DuroMax XP12000EH will allow to power more appliances and tools than the 8000 running watts of the DuroMax XP10000EH. Moreover, compared to the 10000 starting watts of the XP10000EH, the XP12000EH and its starting wattage of 12000 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 XP10000EH enjoys a higher approximate runtime on a full tank than the XP12000EH. It can deliver power for around 10 hours, whereas the XP12000EH will be able to power your appliances for around 9 hours.
  • Fuel Efficiency: With a gasoline consumption at 50% load of 0.92 GPH (gallon per hour), the DuroMax XP12000EH is less fuel efficient than the XP10000EH with its 0.83 GPH. The latter will therefore be more economic to run than the former.
  • THD: Neither the DuroMax XP12000EH nor the DuroMax XP10000EH 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 72 dBA. If noise is important to you, neither of them will be easier on your ears.

Portability Comparison

  • Bulkiness: With dimensions of L30" x W22" x H26", the DuroMax XP12000EH offers a much more compact experience of power generation than the DuroMax XP10000EH and its L40" x W29" x H27.5".
  • Weight: With a weight of 221 lbs, the XP12000EH is slightly less heavy than the XP10000EH (which weighs 232 lbs).
  • Portability: Both products benefit from a wheel kit, which greatly enhances their manoeuvrability. Both offer a folding handle, which improves your grip when you wish to move them around.
