Description

Introducing the XP130000HXT Tri Fuel generator that America has been waiting for. With 13,000 watts of peak power, this unit will run on Gasoline, Propane, or NATURAL GAS and stands alone as the largest Tri Fuel portable generator on the market! (source: DuroMax (opens in a new tab))

Zoom on the DuroMax XP13000HXT

In a nutshell, the DuroMax XP13000HXT is a powerful portable generator mostly geared towards:

  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure
  • Homeowners who want to be sure of their ability to power their fridges, cooking tools, heating and lighting equipment during power failures

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

The DuroMax XP13000HXT in use

The DuroMax XP13000HXT

The DuroMax XP13000HXT delivers 120/240V and is equipped with a tri-fuel technology, enabling it to operate on gasoline, propane, or natural gas. When powered by gasoline, it achieves a running wattage of 10,500W and a peak wattage of 13,000W. Switching to propane provides 9,500 rated watts and 12,000 peak watts, while natural gas operation delivers 8,500W of rated wattage and 10,000W of starting wattage.

At a noise rating of 74 dBA (just slightly more noisy than a dishwasher), this generator provides the choice between a conventional pull-start mechanism or a practical and straightforward electric starter (battery included) for starting. For added user convenience, the XP13000HXT is equipped with remote starting capabilities (key fob included).

In terms of run time, the XP13000HXT, boasting a 8.3 gallons fuel tank, can run for around 8.5 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (with fuel consumption averaging 0.98 gallons per hour). Additionally, it provides around 3.2 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 1.47 GPH) of operation with propane.

Since the XP13000HXT has a somewhat high THD (<12%), it is advisable to not use it for the powering of sensitive electronic devices.

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

Despite not meeting the 'RV Ready' criteria, this DuroMax generator grants the advantage of simple RV compatibility via its L5-30R receptacle, enabling you to conveniently power your RV by using an L5-30P to TT-30R adaptor. Besides, equipped with a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP13000HXT is engineered to be transfer switch ready, enabling simple hookup to your breaker box to provide backup power for your home during blackouts.

Portability

With dimensions of L30 x W29 x H26 in, the standard open frame design of the DuroMax XP13000HXT provides stability and easy maintenance access to components, as well as good air circulation. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough 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 240 lbs. 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

Panel of the DuroMax XP13000HXT

The XP13000HXT's control panel

A digital data center, one of the features of the XP13000HXT's control panel, gives you information on the lifetime run hours, frequency, voltage, fuel level and power output, and thus, is helpful for the monitoring of its activity and status.

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

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 XP13000HXT 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.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the DuroMax XP13000HXT also comes with some accessories: propane hose, funnel, natural gas hose with NPT adapter, tool kit and key fob are included.

The DuroMax XP13000HXT versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP13000HXT compare to generators of similar power (between 10000 and 11000 W).

  • Concerning weight, the DuroMax XP13000HXT weighs only just 240 pounds, distinguishing itself as one of the lighter generators amidst the 10000 to 11000 rated wattage range. If you are mindful of weight, the A-iPower SUA13000EFI is among the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 218 pounds.
  • As this generator can emit noise as low as 74 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of 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.
  • In terms of autonomy, the XP13000HXT offers around 8.5 hours at a 50% load, placing it at the lower range within its power range. For those prioritizing autonomy, the Powerhorse 13000ES could be considered, as it offers one of the longest run times among generators with similar power output, reaching around 15 hours.
  • Run time is a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel tank capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary for a complete understanding. At a 50% load, the generator consumes an estimated 0.98 gallons of gasoline per hour, falling within the average consumption range of units with similar output. 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.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 10000-11000W multi-fuel generators, the DuroMax XP13000HXT is on the average side of the price range.

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