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 (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000E

In a nutshell, the DuroMax XP10000E 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 who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working
  • RV travellers wishing to enhance their freedom and nomad lifestyle

In the upcoming sections, you'll discover its power characteristics, the array of outlets it presents, its overall portability, and the additional features it possesses.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP10000E is powered by a 439 cc (18 hp) DuroMax OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120/240V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 8,000W as well as a peak wattage of 10,000W.

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

Equipped with a 8.3 gallons fuel tank, the XP10000E ensures continuous operation for up to 22 hours with a full tank (fuel usage approximately 0.38 gallons per hour).

As the XP10000E exhibits a THD of less than 12%, which is relatively high, it is best avoided for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features 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 offering a convenient battery charging option.

If you own an RV with a 50-amp service, you can consider this DuroMax unit as RV-ready, as it features a 14-50R outlet. Its L5-30R receptacle can also be used for a simple RV connection with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. In addition, equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP10000E is engineered to be transfer switch ready, enabling simple hookup to your breaker box to provide backup power for your home during blackouts.

Portability

At L29 x W30 x H26 in, the traditional open frame structure of the DuroMax XP10000E ensures stability while facilitating convenient maintenance access to components and promoting air cooling. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 218 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. However, the constrained maneuverability is addressed with the assistance of its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, allowing for easy shifting once the generator is placed on the ground.

Features

The XP10000E's control panel

Included in the control panel of the XP10000E are a handy voltmeter that allows you to easily monitor power output anytime, essential for monitoring its status and activity.

In addition to this info, the device’s light indicator will display if its oil levels are insufficient.

The generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the DuroMax XP10000E, the following accessories are also included: tool kit and funnel. An official storage cover is also available, as a separate purchase.

Product Video

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 a dry weight of 218 pounds, the DuroMax XP10000E finds itself in the expected weight range for generators able to produce between 7500 and 8500 rated watts. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Westinghouse ecoGen10000, with a dry weight of just 147.7 pounds.
  • Because this generator emits noise as low as 72 dBA, it can be considered to have a pretty average expected noise rating for a device of its power. If you value reduced noise levels, the DuroMax XP9500iH could be worth considering. It's one of the quietest generators in its power range, rated at 61 dBA.
  • Since the XP10000E boasts with a run time of up to 22 hours at 25% load, it can be safely judged as one of the devices with the highest run time among those of a comparable output.
  • Run times are important, yet thanks to their dependence on the fuel capacity, they should be judged along with the fuel consumption of the device. Among devices of similar power, this generator has one of the better fuel efficiency, with consumption rates of around 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load. If you're placing a high priority on fuel consumption, the DuroMax XP9500iH, with a low fuel consumption rate of 0.34 GPH, could be an option to consider.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 7500-8500W generators, the DuroMax XP10000E is on the average side of the price range.

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