In the sections ahead, the power characteristics, availability of various outlets, the portability and any additional features of the device shall be discussed, including its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP2000EH in use

The DuroMax XP2000EH

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile DuroMax XP2000EH provides an output of 120V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 1600W along with a peak wattage of 2000W. While propane-powered, it provides 1520 rated watts and 1900 starting watts. In addition, as it is parallel capable (XP2000PK parallel kit not included), this power can be doubled when linked to another similar or compatible unit.

At a noise rating of 58 dBA (less noisy than a quiet suburb), the inverter generator offers the possibility to start the device via a conventional pull-start mechanism.

As for its running time, the XP2000EH, along with its 1.2 gallon fuel capacity, can run for around 7 hours at 50% load with a full tank filled with gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.17 GPH). If propane is used, it can operate for around 20 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.24 GPH).

As the XP2000EH produces a clean sine wave, with a <5% Total Harmonic Disruption (THD), sensitive electronics may be plugged in the AC outlets safely.

The generator will allow you to simultaneously power various devices, for example:Note: Not all of these items may be able to start at the same time. These examples are based on a maximum load of 75 % and on wattage estimates. Use our wattage calculator to find out if this product will be suitable for your needs.

Outlets

The control panel features the upcoming 2 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R)

Portability

As the DuroMax XP2000EH is an inverter generator, its encased design (L20 x W10.5 x H18 in) offers more esthetics than a conventional, open frame product. This type of design is the most modern and convenient way to recreationally generate power.

The XP2000EH is a lightweight, portable generator, as it only weighs 46 lbs. The device can be easily moved by just one person and thus, its power may be enjoyed on-the-go. Further convenience is provided by a handle (molded in the case), as it allows you to carry it effortlessly.

The device’s light indicators will display if the generator is ready, its oil levels are insufficient and the generator is on overload.

From a security standpoint, the product offers an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, allowing you to use it with a peace of mind.

Besides the classic documentation and a user manual to get you promptly started, the DuroMax XP2000EH also comes with some accessories: tool kit, propane hose and funnel are included.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP2000EH 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 and therefore, can be used in forested areas.

The DuroMax XP2000EH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP2000EH compare to generators of similar power (between 1500 and 2500 W).

  • As far as its dry weight is concerned, the DuroMax XP2000EH weighs just 46 pounds and thus, it is one of the lighter 1500 to 2500 rated wattage generators. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the WEN 56202i, standing at just 38.6 lbs.
  • As this inverter generator can emit noise as low as 58 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Honda EU2200i, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 48 dBA.
  • As for its autonomy, the XP2000EH, with an autonomy of 7 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 Westinghouse WGen2000, as it provides 20 hours.
  • While the run time is an important parameter, it is dependent on the fuel tank’s capacity and thus, doesn’t say much on its own unless we consider fuel consumption as well. This inverter generator has an average fuel consumption among comparably powerful devices, as it reaches 0.17 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load. If you wish to further improve in the area of fuel efficiency, the Westinghouse iGen2200, which boasts with a gas consumption of only 0.12 GPH, may be the right generator for you.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 1500-2500W generators, the DuroMax XP2000EH is on the average side of the price range.

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