Zoom on the DuroMax XP4400EH

In summary, the DuroMax XP4400EH is a compact portable generator especially useful for:

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • DIYers who wish to improve their efficiency with tools
  • Homeowners who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability and any additional features of the device, along with its emission compliance information.

Power & Run Time

The dual-fuel technology of the DuroMax XP4400EH allows for an output of 120/240V and provides superb power and versatility. If gasoline-powered, the device provides a running wattage of 3500W and a starting wattage of 4400W. If propane-powered, it gives 3325 rated watts and 4180 starting watts.

The generator is rated for a noise of 69 dBA (less noisy than an office). Its starting mechanisms include a simple traditional pull-start mechanism and a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The running time of the XP4400EH, with its 4 gallons fuel capacity, can reach around 11.5 hours at 50% load on a full tank of gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.35 GPH). With propane, it can reach around 10 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.47 GPH).

The powering of sensitive electronic devices with the XP4400EH is not recommended due to its relatively high THD (<12%).

Outlets

The control panel includes the following 3 AC outlets:

Duplex 120V 20A (5-20R) GFCI
120/240V 30A (L14-30R) receptacle

It also sports 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output with which you may charge your batteries with ease.

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP4400EH is transfer switch ready: in case of a power outage, you will be easily able to connect it to a breaker box and power your household.

Portability

The design of the DuroMax XP4400EH is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L24 x W17 x H17 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The generator is designed for ideal use outdoors and in rough environments.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 125 pounds. However, this lack of maneuverability is compensated by a wheel kit (⌀8") and a folding handle, with which you can conveniently displace it, once it's on the ground.

The XP4400EH's control panel

To help you monitor the XP4400EH's status and activity, its control panel is equipped with a handy voltmeter that allows you to easily monitor power output anytime.

In addition to this info, a light indicator shows you 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.

As far as security is concerned, the generator can be used with a peace of mind, as it features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker).

With the basic documentation and a user manual, letting you start the generator quickly, the DuroMax XP4400EH also comes with several accessories, including: funnel, tool kit and propane hose.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP4400EH 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 thus, may be used in forested areas.

The DuroMax XP4400EH versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP4400EH compare to generators of similar power (between 3000 and 4000 W).

  • At a weight of 125 pounds, the DuroMax XP4400EH places in the expected weight range of the generators in the 3000-4000 rated wattage range. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the WEN GN400i, with a dry weight of only 66.1 lbs.
  • Among the generators of a comparable running wattage, this generator with a lowest noise of 69 dBA can be judged as noisy. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Westinghouse iGen4500, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 52 dBA.
  • The XP4400EH, offering a run time of around 11.5 hours with a full tank at a 50% load, falls within the average autonomy range when compared to its peers. If concerned with autonomy, one of the products of a comparable power output, which offers the highest run time, is the Honda EB4000, boasting with around 16 hours.
  • Even though run times are undoubtedly important, they are dependent on the fuel capacity to a large extent. For a more wholesome picture, we must take into consideration the fuel consumption of the generator. This generator reaches an estimated fuel consumption of 0.35 GPH (gallon per hour) at a 50% load, making it average, for the previously mentioned wattage range. If you are concerned with gasoline efficiency, having a fuel consumption of just 0.17 GPH, the Westinghouse iGen4200 is a device you should look out for.

Price comparison

As you can see from this dynamic chart, when compared to other 3000-4000W generators, the DuroMax XP4400EH is on the average side of the price range.

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