Description

Zoom on the DuroMax XP15000HXT

In a nutshell, the DuroMax XP15000HXT 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

In the forthcoming sections, you'll delve into its power characteristics, the various outlets it offers, its overall portability, and the additional features it boasts.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP15000HXT in use

The DuroMax XP15000HXT

The DuroMax XP15000HXT delivers 120/240V and benefits from a tri-fuel technology that allows it to run on gasoline, propane, or natural gas. When gasoline-powered, it enjoys a running wattage of 12,000W and a peak wattage of 15,000W. When propane-powered, it benefits from 11,400 rated watts and 14,250 peak watts. Its natural gas operation offers 10,260W of rated wattage and 12,825W of starting wattage.

The generator features a standard recoil pull-rope starting mechanism and also a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included). It is rated for a noise of 78 dBA (less noisy than a dishwasher). For added user convenience, the XP15000HXT is equipped with remote starting capabilities (key fob included).

The running time of the XP15000HXT, with its 13.2 gallons fuel capacity, can reach around 12 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 1.1 GPH). With propane, it can reach around 2.8 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 1.68 GPH).

As the XP15000HXT has a relatively high THD (<12%), it is not recommended to use it to power sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 13 AC outlets:

Five Duplexes 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120V 30A (L5-30R) receptacle
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle
120/240V 50A (14-50R) receptacle

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, as the XP15000HXT 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 its L36 x W33.2 x H32 in dimensions, the open frame structure of the DuroMax XP15000HXT guarantees stability, simplified maintenance access to components, and better air cooling than enclosed units. The design is ideal for rough environments and demanding outdoor use.

As the generator's weight is 362 pounds, manually moving it or transporting it may be challenging, despite the fact that it is technically considered 'portable' (movable). However, the constrained maneuverability is addressed with the assistance of its wheel kit (⌀13") and its folding handle, allowing for easy shifting once the generator is placed on the ground.

Features

The XP15000HXT's control panel

With a digital data center integrated into its control panel, the XP15000HXT provides real-time insights into the voltage, fuel level, power output, lifetime run hours and frequency, enabling easy monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator on the device will notify you if the oil level is too low.

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

The XP15000HXT 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 XP15000HXT also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, natural gas hose with NPT adapter, tool kit, key fob and propane hose.

The DuroMax XP15000HXT versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP15000HXT compare to multi-fuel generators of similar power (between 10000 and 14000 W).

  • Considering its dry weight of 362 pounds, the DuroMax XP15000HXT is one of the heavier multi-fuel generators producing between 10000 and 14000 running watts. If you are concerned by weight, one of the champions in the above-mentioned power range is the Predator 13000, with a dry weight of just 226 pounds.
  • As this generator has its lowest possible noise of 78 dBA, it should be considered noisier compared to its peers of a comparable running wattage. If you'd like a less noisy alternative, the DuroMax XP16000iH is a strong contender. It boasts a noise rating of 67 dBA, placing it among the quietest generators in its power category.
  • With around 12 hours of runtime at 50% load, the XP15000HXT provides a higher run time when compared to similarly powerful inverters. If you consider autonomy on a single full tank as one of the deciding factors, one of the generators in the same power range that offers the highest run time is the Predator 13000, with around 12.1 hours.
  • While run time is vital, it hinges on the fuel capacity. To grasp the full picture, we must also factor in fuel efficiency. This generator is not fuel-efficient compared to devices of similar output: its estimated fuel consumption stands at 1.1 GPH at a 50% load. If fuel consumption is your top priority, we suggest to check out the Predator 13000, which has a fuel consumption of only 0.88 GPH and thus, is one of the most efficient devices in our database.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 10000-14000W multi-fuel generators, the DuroMax XP15000HXT is on the average side of the price range.

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