Description

The XP10000X is the most versatile gasoline generator of the new lineup, with 10,000 peak watts and 8,500 running watts. (source: DuroMax (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the DuroMax XP10000X

In a nutshell, the DuroMax XP10000X is a powerful portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

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 XP10000X in use

The DuroMax XP10000X

The DuroMax XP10000X is powered by a 420 cc OHV 4-stroke engine. It delivers 120/240V, runs on gasoline and offers a running wattage of 8,500W 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 vacuum cleaner). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

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

As the XP10000X has a relatively high THD (<12%), it is not recommended to use it to power sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel includes 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 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, 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

The DuroMax XP10000X has the following dimensions: L29 x W30 x H26 in. In combination with its conventional, open frame design, they provide support and allow the generator to be raised above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

While the generator is considered to be technically 'portable' (in the sense that you can move it), manually lifting and transporting it may be challenging, due to its high weight of 220 lbs. Nevertheless, thanks to its wheel kit (⌀10") and its 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 XP10000X

The XP10000X's control panel

The control panel of the XP10000X includes a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, helpful for the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator allows you to instantly see if the oil level is too low.

The generator allows for a quick, easy and convenient assessment of its gas level, as it is equipped with a built-in fuel gauge.

Security-wise, this product benefits from an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), which gives you a complete peace of mind when using it.

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.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP10000X is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. Thus, selling and purchasing this generator is allowed in each of the 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, so it is adequate for use in forested areas.

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).

  • Since the generator weighs in at a dry weight of 220 lbs, the DuroMax XP10000X belongs in the expected weight range for devices which can produce between 8000 and 9000 rated watts. If weight is your top priority, one of the champions in this power category is the Dewalt DXGNR8000, weighing just 183 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 are concerned with noise, check out the Pulsar PGD105TiSCO, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 62 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.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. This generator is one of the most fuel efficient models of the aforementioned output range, as its estimated fuel consumption reaches just 0.38 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 8000-9000W generators, the DuroMax XP10000X is on the average side of the price range.

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