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
  • People occasionally participating in sporting competitions, open-air performances and outdoor festivals
  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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 houses a 389 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120/240V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 5,700W along with a peak wattage of 7,125W.

The generator features a simple traditional 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 features the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

Due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the DXGNR5700 is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

The Dewalt DXGNR5700 has the following dimensions: L27.2 x W27 x H25.7 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

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, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by its wheel kit and its folding handle, with which you can conveniently shift it, once it's on the ground.

Features

A digital data center, one of the features of the DXGNR5700's control panel, gives you information on the lifetime run hours, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

The fuel level of the generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

Besides the features previously mentioned, accessory-wise, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 comes with the usual documentation and owner's manual needed to get you promptly started.

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, so it is adequate for use 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 Pulsar G65BN, with a dry weight of just 126 pounds.
  • Given that the DXGNR5700 reaches an autonomy of around 10.5 hours with a full tank and at 50% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. If autonomy is your priority, one of the devices of a similar power output with the highest run time is the Predator 6500, reaching around 14.5 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank’s capacity and thus, doesn’t say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. This generator has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.64 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.36 GPH, the A-iPower SUA7000L is a device you could look out for.

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.
