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 outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • 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

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 is powered by a 389 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120/240V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 5700W as well as a peak wattage of 7125W.

Its starting mechanism is based on a simple traditional 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 provides 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 a conventional, open frame design, of the following dimensions: L27.2 x W27 x H25.7 in, which offers support and allows it to be raised above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 172 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. Still, once it is on the ground, its wheel kit and its folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

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.

Thanks to a built-in fuel gauge, the generator allows you to quickly, conveniently and easily check the gas level at a glance.

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.

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. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 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).

  • Weight-wise, the Dewalt DXGNR5700 has only 172 lbs, which renders it one of the lighter generators which produce 5500 to 6500 rated watts. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Pulsar G65BN, with a dry weight of only 126 lbs.
  • As the DXGNR5700 offers around 10.5 hours run time on a full tank at a 50% load, it falls within the average autonomy range among the generators of a similar power. 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. This generator is somewhat less fuel efficient than devices of comparable output: its estimated fuel consumption reaches 0.64 GPH 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.
