Description

Be ready for anything with the DuroMax XP10000E generator. Easy to transport over any terrain, from the neck of the woods to the downtown jobsite, the XP10000E generator will keep you going. (source: DuroMax)

Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000E

In summary, the DuroMax XP10000E is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners and people participating in outdoor fairs, festivals or events
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

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 DuroMax XP10000E's engine, 440 cc (18 hp) DuroMax OHV 4-stroke, fueled by gasoline, can deliver 120/240V. It provides a running wattage of 8000W and reaches a peak wattage of 10000W.

The generator is rated for a noise of 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a shower). Its starting mechanisms include a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and a simple and elegant electric starter (battery included).

With a fuel capacity of 8.3 gallons, the XP10000E may run for around 10 hours at 50% load with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.83 GPH).

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the XP10000E is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<12%).

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

Additionally, it features 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output with which charging your batteries is made easy.

This DuroMax generator features an L5-30R receptacle, enabling an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. However, it is still not quite RV ready. Besides, because the XP10000E is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

The design of the DuroMax XP10000E is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L40 x W29 x H27.5 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 232 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. Never less, thanks to a wheel kit and a folding handle (a decent solution to its lack of maneuverability), the generator can be easily moved, once placed the ground.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP10000E

The XP10000E's control panel

The XP10000E's status and activity may be monitored conveniently via the control panel, as it features a handy voltmeter that allows you to easily monitor power output anytime.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicator will display if the oil level is too low.

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

As for its security measures, the device features an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, letting you use it with a peace of mind.

With the basic documentation and a user manual, letting you start the generator quickly, the DuroMax XP10000E also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit and funnel.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP10000E 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 and thus, may be used in forested areas.

The DuroMax XP10000E versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP10000E compare to generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • With its weight of 232 lbs, the DuroMax XP10000E is one of the heavier generators in the 7500-8500 rated wattage category. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Lifan LF8750iEPL, with a dry weight of only 185 lbs.
  • At a lowest noise rating of 72 dBA, this generator is one of the quieter devices of similar power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the WEN GN9500. With just 64 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Given that the XP10000E reaches an autonomy of around 10 hours with a full tank and at 50% load, it is placed within the average autonomy range of similarly powerful generators. 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 Firman H08053, with around 12 hours .
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. Compared to its peers, this generator is not exactly fuel efficient, compared to similarly powerful devices, with an estimated fuel consumption of 0.83 GPH at a 50% load. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the Westinghouse WPro8500, with a fuel consumption of 0.55 GPH could be in your good books.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 7500-8500W generators, the DuroMax XP10000E is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.

The bottom line

STRENGTHS:
  • Inexpensive
  • Several accessories included
  • Electric start
  • Quiet for its power (72 dBA)
AVERAGE SPECS:
  • Decent run time
WEAKNESSES:
  • No remote start
  • On the heavy side (232 lbs)
