Description

The DEWALT 7000W Generator features the Smart Runtime Meter and Wattage Meter which displays fuel level and time remaining at the current power level and gives instant feedback on how much power is being used. The generator also features a premium DEWALT engine, durable wheels, and a hassle-free electric start-up. (source: Dewalt (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the Dewalt DXGNR7000

In a nutshell, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 is a portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • 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 DXGNR7000 in use

The Dewalt DXGNR7000

The Dewalt DXGNR7000's design includes a gasoline-fueled 420 cc Dewalt OHV 4-stroke engine. With a 120/240V output, it gives a running wattage of 7,000W and also a peak wattage of 8,750W.

This generator can be started via a conventional pull-start mechanism, or a simple and elegant 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 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

The design of the Dewalt DXGNR7000 is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L27.2 x W27.4 x H28.5 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 192 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

Panel of the Dewalt DXGNR7000

The DXGNR7000's control panel

Monitoring of the DXGNR7000's status and activity is made possible by a digital data center, which provides information on the lifetime run hours and power output 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.

From a security point of view, the generator is equipped with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), giving you a peace of mind during use.

Apart from the typical documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), which lets you start it right away, the Dewalt DXGNR7000 also is packed along with the following accessories: battery charger, tool kit and oil.

Emissions

The Dewalt DXGNR7000 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 and thus, may be used in forested areas.

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. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, standing at just 133 lbs.
  • The DXGNR7000 provides a higher run time than similarly powerful devices, reaching around 11 hours at 50% load. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Predator 9000, as it provides around 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 has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.68 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load. 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.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.

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.

    Owned mine for six years bought it during a power outage March 2017 used it 12 hours changed oil and put it away. Sitting since. Just put in a new battery checked the oil replaced the gas with new hit the starter it fired right up. Fantastic machine. It’ll be powering our fifth wheel on weekends. Couldn’t be happier

    + PROS:
    • Couldn’t be happier
    - CONS:
    • The weight is though to handle at 70 years old. My tractor is the ticket.

    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.
