Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000EH

In summary, the DuroMax XP10000EH is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • 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 in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

The subsequent sections will explore in detail its power characteristics, the diverse outlets it provides, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it offers.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP10000EH in use

The DuroMax XP10000EH

With its dual-fuel technology, the DuroMax XP10000EH delivers 120/240V, and offers power and flexibility. Running on gasoline, it boasts a running wattage of 8,000W and a peak wattage of 10,000W. When powered by propane, it delivers 6,800 running watts and 8,500 peak watts.

At a noise rating of 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), this generator can be started via a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism, or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The running time of the XP10000EH, with its 8.3 gallons fuel capacity, can reach up to 22 hours on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.38 GPH). With propane, it can reach up to 8.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.55 GPH).

Due to the relatively high THD (<12%) of the XP10000EH, it is advised against using it for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 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 making battery charging a breeze.

Even if this DuroMax generator isn't quite RV Ready, it still allows for an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor, thanks to its L5-30R receptacle. Besides, since the XP10000EH 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

At L29 x W30 x H26 in, the traditional open frame structure of the DuroMax XP10000EH 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.

Despite its 220 lbs, the generator falls under the category of 'portable,' signifying its movability, although its weight may hinder easy portability. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP10000EH

The XP10000EH's control panel

Included in the control panel of the XP10000EH are a convenient voltmeter, which provides an easy way to monitor power output anytime, essential for monitoring its status and activity.

In addition to this info, the device's light indicator will illuminate to indicate if the oil level is too low.

The inclusion of a built-in fuel gauge in the generator streamlines gas level checks for quick and convenient assessments.

In terms of security, the generator features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), ensuring peace of mind during its use.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the DuroMax XP10000EH also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, propane hose and funnel. An official storage cover is also available, as a separate purchase.

Product Video

The DuroMax XP10000EH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP10000EH compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • At 220 lbs dry, the DuroMax XP10000EH is consistent with the standard weight profile for dual fuel devices ranging from 7500 to 8500 rated watts. If weight is an important consideration for you, the Cummins Onan P9500df stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 194 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 noise level is one your key decisive factors, you may find the DuroMax XP9500iH appealing. It's rated at 61 dBA, making it one of the quietest generators in its power range.
  • With up to 22 hours of runtime at 25% load, the XP10000EH provides a one of the highest run times when compared to similarly powerful dual fuel products.
  • 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 can be considered as fuel-efficient, due to its low estimated fuel consumption of only 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, within the aforementioned wattage range. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.34 GPH, the DuroMax XP9500iH is a device you could look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 7500-8500W dual fuel generators, the DuroMax XP10000EH is on the average side of the price range.

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