Description

The XP10000DX is the most versatile dual fuel generator of the new lineup, with 10,000 peak watts and 8,500 running watts. (source: DuroMax (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000DX

In a few words, the DuroMax XP10000DX is a powerful portable generator perfectly suited for:

  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

In the forthcoming sections, you'll delve into its power characteristics, the various outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the additional features it boasts.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP10000DX in use

The DuroMax XP10000DX

Featuring dual-fuel technology, the DuroMax XP10000DX provides 120/240V, as well as versatility and power. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 8,500W and a peak wattage of 10,000W. Alternatively, when fueled by propane, it offers 8,075 running watts and 9,500 peak watts.

Enjoying a noise rating of 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator offers the versatility of starting with either a simple traditional pull-start mechanism or a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

With a fuel capacity of 8.3 gallons, the XP10000DX can operate for up to 22 hours using gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.83 GPH), or for up to 8.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.55 GPH) using propane.

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the XP10000DX is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<12%).

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 7 AC outlets:

Two Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

Even though this DuroMax generator isn't quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle allows an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, since the XP10000DX 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

With its L29 x W30 x H26 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the DuroMax XP10000DX guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

Despite its weight of 230 lbs, the generator is still considered 'portable,' meaning it is movable, although its heftiness may restrict portability in certain environments or require additional considerations for transportation and setup. Still, once it is on the ground, its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle can easily solve the issue of low mobility and allow for easy relocation of the device.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP10000DX

The XP10000DX's control panel

For convenient monitoring of its status and activity, the control panel of the XP10000DX includes a convenient meter, providing voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours data.

In addition to this info, a light indicator on the device will notify you if the oil level is too low.

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

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

The XP10000DX also benefits from DuroMax’s CO Alert carbon monoxide shutdown. If CO levels become unsafe or rapidly increase, the generator will automatically shut down, an indicator will light red, and the engine will not restart for 5 minutes.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the DuroMax XP10000DX features extra accessories: funnel, propane hose and tool kit.

The DuroMax XP10000DX versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP10000DX compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 8000 and 9000 W).

  • At a dry weight of 230 pounds, the DuroMax XP10000DX is one of the heaviest dual fuel devices which can produce between 8000 and 9000 running watts. If weight matters to you, one of the champions in this power range is the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc with only 187.4 pounds.
  • Since the generator's noise is rated at 72 dBA, it has the roughly average expected noise for a device of similar type and power. If noise is a concern for you, you could consider the DuroMax XP11000iH, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, rated at 61 dBA.
  • Offering around 10 hours of running time on a full tank at 50% load, the XP10000DX is within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful dual fuel generators. If extended autonomy is what matters most to you, the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc could be an excellent choice, offering one of the longest run times among units in its power category, reaching around 12 hours.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. With a fuel usage of about 0.83 GPH at a 50% load, this generator falls within the typical gasoline consumption range observed in comparably powerful products. If gasoline efficiency is at the top of your list, you may want to have a look at the Westinghouse iGen11000DFc, which has great fuel efficiency, with a gas consumption of only 0.66 gallons per hour.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 8000-9000W dual fuel generators, the DuroMax XP10000DX is on the average side of the price range.

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