Zoom on the Dewalt DXGNR7000

In a few words, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 is a portable generator perfectly suited for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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

Power & Run Time

The Dewalt DXGNR7000 in use

The Dewalt DXGNR7000

The Dewalt DXGNR7000 is powered by a 420 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120/240V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 7,000W as well as a peak wattage of 8,750W.

This generator can be started via a traditional recoil pull-start mechanism, or an intuitive and practical electric starter (battery included).

Featuring a 7.5 gallons fuel tank, the DXGNR7000 guarantees continuous power for around 11 hours at 50% load on a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.68 GPH).

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 DXGNR7000 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

At L27.2 x W27.4 x H28.5 in, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 boasts a traditional open frame structure, ensuring stability and allowing for convenient maintenance access to components, promoting air circulation. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Though weighing 192 lbs, the generator remains classified as 'portable,' indicating its capability to be moved, though its weight could pose transport challenges. 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

Designed with a digital data center, the control panel of the DXGNR7000 grants you access to crucial data on the power output and lifetime run hours, ensuring practical monitoring of its status and activity.

The inclusion of a built-in fuel gauge in the generator streamlines gas level checks for quick and convenient assessments.

Considering security aspects, the generator boasts an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), offering peace of mind throughout operation.

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: battery charger, oil and tool kit.

Product Videos

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).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 192 lbs, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 belongs in the expected weight range for devices which can produce between 6500 and 7500 rated watts. If weight is an important consideration for you, the Sportsman GEN85KIDF stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 133 pounds.
  • In terms of run time, the DXGNR7000 surpasses similarly powerful devices, boasting one of the higher run times at around 11 hours. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Predator 9000, which is able to run for around 13 hours.
  • Though run time is a significant parameter, it's closely tied to the generator's fuel tank size. To get a comprehensive understanding, fuel efficiency must also be taken into account. With an estimated fuel consumption of 0.68 GPH at a 50% load, this generator aligns with the average gasoline usage range of comparable products. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Energizer eZV7500. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.45 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: Dewalt DXGNR7000 vs Dewalt DXGNR8000.

What is the noise rating of the DXGNR7000?

Due to the lack of standardization in noise emission measurement, Dewalt does not provide their units' noise levels.

what are the engine oil requirements? (Asked September 06, 2020)

Engine oil capacity is 1.06qt. DeWALT recommends the following: SAE 30 above 40°F, 10W-30 between -10 and 40°F, and synthetic 5W-30 for all temperatures. Synthetic oil should not be used for engine break in.

    believe it or not,
    I found one in the woods by a river, it is a DXGNR7000. I have been working on it for a couple days as it was in a flooded river with dried mud inside the generator,rust in the cylinder head,and the fuel tank is full of water and dirt.
    The oil fill had a quart of water and a quart of oil in it, u can guess the carburetor was full of water. I pulled the head off and sanded the rust off the side of the cylinder walls. cleaned the carb, reinstalled the head{no new gasket} it had compression. shot it with carb cleaner and it started with the first pull.I cleaned up the starter,ignighter,and the generator,now the starter works,bamb I would bet money it will make power.so far I spent 0 $, looks like i need a new set of brushes,and a 20 amp reset button ,20 $. If it makes power I will buy a tank for 89.00 amazon.

    + PROS:
    • nice for the price
    - CONS:
    • It is heavy to put in a truck,I might be getting old

    We were hit by Hurricane Ida and loss electricity. My DeWALT 7-kw Generator has been a blessing! I have it running my entire house except for my Central Air Conditioner and my Hot Tub. It has no problem running my 2 temporarily added 6000-BTU window Units. We are living normally and my wife is working, where most of my neighbors are still evacuees, out of town!

    + PROS:
    • Fuel efficiency
    • Easy starting
    • Easy operation
    • Easily maneuvered on flat cement
    - CONS:
    • No noise barrier and quite loud
    • Heavy (200-lbs)

    I used it once in three years but it performed better than expected.

    + PROS:
    • Easy start and relatively fuel efficient. I get about 7.5 hours/tank
    - CONS:
    • A little heavy but it’s not a big issue for me.
