Power & Run Time

The Dewalt DXGNR7000 in use

The Dewalt DXGNR7000

The Dewalt DXGNR7000's build contains a gasoline-fueled 420 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 7000W and also a peak wattage of 8750W.

Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

The fuel capacity of 7.5 gallons allows the DXGNR7000 to operate for around 10.5 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.71 GPH).

The following are examples of possible devices which the generator will allow you to power simultaneously:Note: The examples above are based on a maximum load of 75% and estimated wattages. The devices also may not be able to start at the same time. For a more accurate estimation, use our wattage calculator.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

Since the DXGNR7000 bears a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it is easily connectible to a breaker box and can power your home in case of a power outage.

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. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

As the generator's weight is 192 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 a wheel kit and a folding handle, with which you can conveniently displace it, once it's on the ground.

Features

The DXGNR7000's control panel

To help you monitor the DXGNR7000's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with an illuminated data center, giving you information on the lifetime run hours, power output, fuel level and remaining run time.

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

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

With the basic documentation and a user manual, letting you start the generator quickly, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 also comes with several accessories, including: oil, tool kit and battery charger.

Emissions

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

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate 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 Lifan LF7250, weighing just 140 pounds.
  • The DXGNR7000, offering a run time of 10.5 hours with a full tank at a 50% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Pulsar PG7500B, which is able to run for 13 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 reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.71 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. 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 dynamic 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.
