Zoom on the DuroMax XP4400EH

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

  • RV travellers who wish to upgrade their experience to another level
  • Occasional participants of outdoor events, competitions, concerts and festivals
  • Handcrafting enthusiasts who wish to work on-the-go
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals in need of safely powering high-intensity work or lighting equipment

In the following paragraphs, we shall explore the power characteristics, available outlets, portability, and any additional features of the device.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP4400EH in use

The DuroMax XP4400EH

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 3,500W and a starting wattage of 4,400W. If propane-powered, it gives 3,325 rated watts and 4,180 starting watts.

The generator is rated for a noise of 69 dBA (less noisy than background music). Its starting mechanisms include a conventional pull-start mechanism and a user-friendly and hassle-free electric starter (battery included).

In terms of its run time capability, the XP4400EH, furnished with a 4 gallons fuel tank, can maintain operations for up to 25 hours on a full tank of gasoline (with fuel consumption averaging 0.16 gallons per hour). It also provides up to 20 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.24 GPH) of operation with propane.

The quite high THD (<12%) of the XP4400EH makes it unsuitable for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel is equipped with the following 3 AC outlets:

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

Moreover, it comes equipped with 1 DC outlet: there's a 12V 8A output allowing you to easily charge your batteries.

Due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP4400EH is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

At L25 x W24 x H21 in, the DuroMax XP4400EH boasts a traditional open frame structure, ensuring stability and allowing for convenient maintenance access to components, promoting air circulation. The featured design is ideal for the outdoors and all tough environments.

Despite its weight of 122 lbs, the generator is still considered 'portable,' meaning it is movable, although its heftiness may restrict portability in certain environments or require additional considerations for transportation and setup. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

The XP4400EH's control panel

The XP4400EH's control center features a convenient voltmeter, which provides an easy way to monitor power output anytime to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator allows you to instantly see if its oil levels are insufficient.

The fuel level of the generator can be determined quickly, easily, and conveniently with the help of its built-in fuel gauge.

Considering security aspects, the generator boasts an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), offering peace of mind throughout operation.

Besides the classic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab) to get you promptly started, the DuroMax XP4400EH also comes with some accessories: funnel, propane hose and tool kit are included. An official storage cover is also available, as a separate purchase.

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 dual fuel generators of similar power (between 3000 and 4000 W).

  • With a weight of 122 lbs, the DuroMax XP4400EH is notably on the heavier side among dual fuel generators in the 3000-4000 rated wattage range. In terms of weight, one of the champions in their power range is the A-iPower SUA4300iD, standing at just 54.8 lbs.
  • This generator, with its lowest possible noise rated at 69 dBA falls into the more noisy category, compared to other devices of a similar running wattage. If noise emissions are one of your priorities, you may be interested in the Westinghouse iGen4500DF, one of the least noisy generators similarly powerful as this one, rated for 52 dBA.
  • Since the XP4400EH boasts with a run time of up to 25 hours at 25% load, it can be safely judged as one of the dual fuel devices with the highest run time among those of a comparable output.
  • Run time is a key metric, but it's dependent on the generator's fuel capacity. Therefore, discussing fuel efficiency is necessary to get the full picture. At an estimated fuel consumption of 0.16 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load, this generator is one of the most fuel-efficient units within its wattage category.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 3000-4000W dual fuel 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.
