Zoom on the Dewalt DXGNR5700

In summary, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The Dewalt DXGNR5700's engine, 389 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 5700W and reaches a peak wattage of 7125W.

This generator features a conventional pull-start mechanism.

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

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 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.

Since the generator weighs 172 lbs, it will be incredibly difficult to manually lift it and transport it, even though it is technically considered to 'be portable' (in the sense that it is movable). Never less, it can still be moved quite conveniently with the help of a wheel kit and a folding handle, once it is placed on the ground.

Features

To help you monitor the DXGNR5700's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a digital data center, giving you information on the lifetime run hours.

The generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

As for its security measures, the device features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), letting you use it with a peace of mind.

Accessory-wise, along with the previously mentioned features, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 is packaged with the standard documentation and a user manual, helping you start the device right away.

Emissions

The Dewalt DXGNR5700 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 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).

  • As for its weight, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 weighs only 172 pounds, making it one of the lighter generators in the 5500-6500 rated wattage category. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above mentioned power range is the Lifan LF7250, with a dry weight of just 140 pounds.
  • As far as autonomy is concerned, providing around 10.5 hours of runtime with a full tank at a 50% load, the DXGNR5700 falls into the low end in comparison with other devices of a comparable power output. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Cat RP5500, which is able to run for 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. In fact, this generator is not among the most fuel efficient, within the aforementioned wattage range : its estimated gasoline consumption at 50% load is around 0.64 GPH. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.38 GPH, the Lifan ESI 7000iER-EFI is a device you should look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic 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.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Inexpensive
  • Lightweight for its kind (172 lbs)
WEAKNESSES:
  • No electric start
  • Relatively low run time
  • Low fuel efficiency
