Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000HX

To sum up, the DuroMax XP10000HX is a portable generator tailored for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • 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, and the extra features it benefits from.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP10000HX in use

The DuroMax XP10000HX

Thanks to its dual-fuel technology, the DuroMax XP10000HX delivers 120/240V and offers power and versatility. When gasoline-powered, it benefits from a running wattage of 8,000W and a peak wattage of 10,000W. When propane-powered, it has 7,600 rated watts and 9,500 peak watts.

Operating with a noise rating of 72 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator offers two starting options: a classic hand-operated recoil starting mechanism and a practical and straightforward electric starter (battery included).

Regarding its running time, the XP10000HX, with a 8.3 gallons fuel tank, can operate for up to 22 hours with a full gasoline tank (with fuel consumption estimated at around 0.38 gallons per hour). It also offers up to 8.5 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.55 GPH) of operation when using propane.

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the XP10000HX is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<12%).

Outlets

The control panel provides 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 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 it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP10000HX is tailored to be transfer switch ready, making it easy to connect it to your breaker box for home power support during outages.

Portability

With its L29 x W30 x H26 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the DuroMax XP10000HX guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

While weighing 228 lbs, the generator is classified as 'portable,' indicating its mobility, albeit its heftiness may limit portability in specific situations. 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 XP10000HX's control panel

The XP10000HX's control center features a convenient meter, offering voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours readings to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator allows you to instantly see 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 comes with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), providing peace of mind during use.

The XP10000HX 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.

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the DuroMax XP10000HX also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, propane hose and tool kit.

The DuroMax XP10000HX versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP10000HX compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 7500 and 8500 W).

  • Tipping the scales at 228 lbs, the DuroMax XP10000HX qualifies as one of the heavier options among dual fuel generators rated between 7500 and 8500. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Cummins Onan P9500df, with a dry weight of only 194 lbs.
  • 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'd like a less noisy alternative, the DuroMax XP9500iH is a strong contender. It boasts a noise rating of 61 dBA, placing it among the quietest generators in its power category.
  • With up to 22 hours of runtime at 25% load, the XP10000HX provides a one of the highest run times when compared to similarly powerful dual fuel products.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this generator is a rather fuel-efficient one within its wattage category. If you wish to acquire one of the most gasoline efficient products of this power range, the DuroMax XP9500iH, with a fuel consumption of 0.34 GPH could be in your good books.
According to our stats, the following comparison is pretty popular: DuroMax XP10000HX vs DuroMax XP10000EH.
