Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000X

In short, the DuroMax XP10000X is a powerful portable generator adequately designed for:

  • 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

In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability, and any additional features of the device shall be discussed.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP10000X in use

The DuroMax XP10000X

DuroMax XP10000X runs on gasoline, powered by a 420 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, delivering 120/240V, boasting a running wattage of 8,500W alongside a starting wattage of 10,000W.

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

Thanks to a fuel capacity of 8.3 gallons, the XP10000X can operate for up to 22 hours with a full tank (fuel consumption around 0.38 GPH).

Since the XP10000X has a somewhat high THD (<12%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 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

This DuroMax generator isn't quite RV Ready, but it features an L5-30R receptacle, allowing a simple RV connection through an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, as the XP10000X holds a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: you'll easily be able to connect it to your breaker box to power your home during a power outage.

Portability

With dimensions of L29 x W30 x H26 in, the standard open frame design of the DuroMax XP10000X provides stability and easy maintenance access to components, as well as good air circulation. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 220 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). Nevertheless, the restricted maneuverability is counteracted by its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, enabling easy shifting once the generator is set in place.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP10000X

The XP10000X's control panel

Integrated into the control center of the XP10000X are a convenient meter, showing voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours metrics, facilitating the monitoring of 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 built-in fuel gauge of the generator ensures simple and quick gas level assessments.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during use.

The XP10000X 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 XP10000X also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit and funnel.

Product Video

The DuroMax XP10000X versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP10000X compare to generators of similar power (between 8000 and 9000 W).

  • With a dry weight of 220 lbs, the DuroMax XP10000X sits comfortably within the expected weight range for devices generating 8000 to 9000 rated watts. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the Dewalt DXGNR8000, standing at just 183 lbs.
  • With noise emissions rated as low as 72 dBA, this generator falls within the typical noise range expected for devices of similar power. If you’d prefer a less noisy device, one of the most quiet devices, which share the same power range with this one, is the DuroMax XP11000iH, whose lowest noise levels reach just 61 dBA.
  • As the XP10000X features an autonomy of up to 22 hours at 25% load, it has one of the highest run times in comparison to the other generators of its power range.
  • Though run time is a significant parameter, it's closely tied to the generator's fuel tank size. To get a comprehensive understanding, fuel efficiency must also be taken into account. This generator, with an estimated fuel consumption of just 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, is one of the most fuel-efficient generators, for the previously mentioned wattage range.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 8000-9000W generators, the DuroMax XP10000X 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.
