Zoom on the Dewalt DXGNR5700

In a nutshell, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Food truck owners who do not wish to see their business interrupted under any circumstances
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The Dewalt DXGNR5700's design includes a gasoline-fueled 389 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 5700W and also a peak wattage of 7125W.

This generator gets running thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism.

The fuel capacity of 6.7 gallons allows the DXGNR5700 to operate for around 10.5 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.64 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel features the following 5 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

As the DXGNR5700 holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

The dimensions of the Dewalt DXGNR5700, which are L27.2 x W27 x H25.7 in, and its typical, open frame design provides stability and enables the generator to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 172 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

Monitoring of the DXGNR5700's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours and is one of the features of its control panel.

The generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, giving you a peace of mind during use.

Along with the aforementioned features, from an accessory standpoint, the Dewalt DXGNR5700's box includes the typical documentation and an owner's manual, which will help you start your generator promptly.

Emissions

The Dewalt DXGNR5700 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor and thus, may be used in forested areas.

The Dewalt DXGNR5700 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Dewalt DXGNR5700 compare to generators of similar power (between 5500 and 6500 W).

  • Regarding its weight, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 only weighs in at 172 pounds, which means it's one of the lighter generators in the 5500-6500 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Lifan LF7250, with a dry weight of only 140 lbs.
  • As for its autonomy, the DXGNR5700, with an autonomy of around 10.5 hours at a 50% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Cat RP5500, as it provides around 15 hours.
  • Autonomy holds its importance, however, it is largely dependent on the generator’s fuel capacity and so, it is nonsensible to discuss it without mentioning fuel efficiency as well. Compared to its peers, this generator is not exactly fuel efficient, compared to similarly powerful devices, with an estimated fuel consumption of 0.64 GPH at a 50% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.38 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 5500-6500W generators, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
