Zoom on the DuroMax XP13000DX

To sum up, the DuroMax XP13000DX is a powerful portable generator tailored for professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working..

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP13000DX in use

The DuroMax XP13000DX

Delivering 120/240V, the DuroMax XP13000DX is enhanced by dual-fuel technology, providing power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it boasts a running wattage of 10,500W and a starting wattage of 13,000W. Alternatively, when propane-powered, it delivers 9,975 running watts and 12,350 starting watts.

Enjoying a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator offers the versatility of starting with either a simple traditional pull-start mechanism or a user-friendly and hassle-free electric starter (battery included).

Regarding its running time, the XP13000DX, with a 8.3 gallons fuel tank, can operate for around 8.5 hours at 50% load with a full gasoline tank (with fuel consumption estimated at around 0.98 gallons per hour). It also offers around 3.2 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 1.47 GPH) of operation when using propane.

Due to the relatively high THD (<12%) of the XP13000DX, it is advised against using it for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features 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 though this DuroMax generator isn't quite RV Ready, its L5-30R receptacle allows an easy RV connection via an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, as the XP13000DX 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 a size of L30 x W29 x H26 in, the DuroMax XP13000DX features an open frame design, providing stability and simplified maintenance access to components, enhancing air circulation. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Despite its weight of 240 lbs, the generator is still considered 'portable,' meaning it is movable, although its heftiness may restrict portability in certain environments or require additional considerations for transportation and setup. Nonetheless, the limited maneuverability is compensated for by utilizing its wheel kit (⌀10") and its folding handle, which facilitates shifting once the generator is set on the ground.

Features

The XP13000DX's control panel

The control panel of the XP13000DX is equipped with a convenient meter, which displays voltage, frequency and lifetime hours, aiding in monitoring its status and activity.

In addition to this info, the generator's light indicator provides visual feedback when its oil levels are insufficient.

Equipped with a built-in fuel gauge, the generator facilitates swift gas level checks.

From a security standpoint, the generator is furnished with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, ensuring peace of mind during operation.

The XP13000DX 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 XP13000DX also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, tool kit and propane hose.

The DuroMax XP13000DX versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP13000DX compare to generators of similar power (between 10000 and 11000 W).

  • Concerning weight, the DuroMax XP13000DX weighs only just 240 pounds, distinguishing itself as one of the lighter generators amidst the 10000 to 11000 rated wattage range. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the A-iPower SUA13000EFI, standing at just 218 lbs.
  • Given its rated noise level of 74 dBA, this generator aligns with the average expected noise rating for devices of similar power. If you value reduced noise levels, the A-iPower SUA13000EFI could be worth considering. It's one of the quietest generators in its power range, rated at 69 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the XP13000DX, with an autonomy of around 8.5 hours at a 50% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. If extended autonomy is what matters most to you, the Powerhorse 13000ES could be an excellent choice, offering one of the longest run times among units in its power category, reaching around 15 hours.
  • 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. The generator utilizes approximately 0.98 GPH of gasoline at a 50% load, placing it within the typical range of fuel consumption seen in products of comparable wattage. If you wish to get a unit of similar power, but with one of the best fuel efficiency, you could consider the A-iPower SUA13000EFI, which has an impressively low fuel consumption of 0.78 GPH.

Here's a list of the most popular specific comparisons:
