Zoom on the DuroMax XP13000E

In a nutshell, the DuroMax XP13000E is a powerful portable generator mostly geared towards professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment.

Over the following sections, you'll uncover its power characteristics, the selection of outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it includes.

Power & Run Time

With a 500 cc (20 hp) DuroMax OHV 4-stroke engine, the DuroMax XP13000E operates on gasoline, providing 120/240V, with a running wattage of 10,500W and a starting wattage of 13,000W.

At a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a vacuum cleaner), this generator provides the choice between a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism or a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included) for starting.

With a fuel capacity of 8.3 gallons, the XP13000E can run for around 8 hours at 50% load when the tank is full (fuel consumption is approximately 1.04 gallons per hour).

Considering its relatively high Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of less than 12%, it is not recommended to rely on the XP13000E for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features 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

Moreover, it boasts 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A (cigarette lighter style) receptacle with which you may charge your batteries with ease.

While not classified as 'RV Ready,' this DuroMax generator can still provides the advantage of RV connection via its L5-30R receptacle, ensuring power supply to your RV with an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, because the XP13000E is equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, it is transfer switch ready: it can power your home during a power outage, as it can be easily connected to your breaker box to power your household.

Portability

With dimensions of L29 x W30 x H26 in, the standard open frame design of the DuroMax XP13000E provides stability and easy maintenance access to components, as well as good air circulation. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Though weighing 236 lbs, the generator remains classified as 'portable,' indicating its capability to be moved, though its weight could pose transport challenges. 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 XP13000E's control panel

Integrated into the control center of the XP13000E are a convenient meter, displaying voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours information, facilitating the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator on the device will signal if its oil levels are insufficient.

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

Regarding security, the generator comes with an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), providing peace of mind during operation.

Apart from the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to facilitate setup, the DuroMax XP13000E features extra accessories: battery charging cables, funnel and tool kit. An official storage cover is also available, as a separate purchase.

The DuroMax XP13000E versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP13000E compare to generators of similar power (between 10000 and 11000 W).

  • Considering its weight, the DuroMax XP13000E registers at a modest 236 pounds, placing it among the lighter generators in the 10000 to 11000 rated wattage selection. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the A-iPower SUA13000EFI, standing at just 218 lbs.
  • With noise emissions rated as low as 74 dBA, this generator falls within the typical noise range expected for devices of similar power. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may want to take a look at the A-iPower SUA13000EFI. It's one of the quietest options among generators of similar power, rated at 69 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the XP13000E, with an autonomy of around 8 hours at a 50% load, is placed on the low end among the generators of its kind. Furthermore, considering the run times, one of the generators which have a roughly same power output, with the highest autonomy, is the Powerhorse 13000ES, as it provides around 15 hours.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. This generator is rather wasteful, compared to other devices within the aforementioned output range, when it comes to gasoline consumption, as it reaches roughly 1.04 GPH at a 50% load. If gasoline efficiency is at the top of your list, you may want to have a look at the A-iPower SUA13000EFI, which has great fuel efficiency, with a gas consumption of only 0.78 gallons per hour.
