Zoom on the Dewalt DXGNR7000

In summary, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

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 DXGNR7000 in use

The Dewalt DXGNR7000

The Dewalt DXGNR7000's engine, 420 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 7000W and reaches a peak wattage of 8750W.

Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The fuel capacity of 7.5 gallons allows the DXGNR7000 to operate for around 11 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.68 GPH).

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the DXGNR7000 is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

The dimensions of the Dewalt DXGNR7000, which are L27.2 x W27.4 x H28.5 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.

While the generator is considered to be technically 'portable' (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 192 lbs. Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit and its folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

Panel of the Dewalt DXGNR7000

The DXGNR7000's control panel

The control panel of the DXGNR7000 includes a digital data center, which assists you in monitoring its status and activity, as it provides information on the power output and lifetime run hours.

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

Security-wise, this product benefits from an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the Dewalt DXGNR7000's package also includes these accessories: tool kit, oil and battery charger.

Emissions

The Dewalt DXGNR7000 is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Therefore, its sale and purchase are permitted in all of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

The Dewalt DXGNR7000 versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the Dewalt DXGNR7000 compare to generators of similar power (between 6500 and 7500 W).

  • With a dry weight of 192 pounds, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 finds itself in the expected weight range for generators able to produce between 6500 and 7500 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, weighing just 133 pounds.
  • With a run time of around 11 hours at 50% load, the DXGNR7000 has one of the higher run times, compared to its similarly powerful peers. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Generac XC6500, with around 14 hours.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. This generator has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.68 GPH (gallon per hour) 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 6500-7500W generators, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 is on the average side of the price range.

Therefore, this generator nicely fits in the expected budget for this kind of product.
