Description

Zoom on the DuroMax XP7500DX

In summary, the DuroMax XP7500DX is a portable generator especially useful for:

  • Food truck owners who want to ensure that their business is fully self-contained and does not rely on potentially unreliable external power
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals who want to be able to deliver results, even during a power failure

The following sections will present you in detail its power characteristics, the different outlets it offers, its overall portability, the extra features it benefits from, and any relevant emission compliance details.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP7500DX in use

The DuroMax XP7500DX

With its dual-fuel technology, the powerful and versatile DuroMax XP7500DX provides an output of 120/240V. While gasoline-powered, it gives a running wattage of 6500W along with a peak wattage of 7500W. While propane-powered, it provides 6175 rated watts and 7125 starting watts.

Enjoying a noise rating of 70 dBA (just as noisy as a dishwasher), this generator can be started thanks to a conventional pull-start mechanism, but also to a convenient and easy-to-use electric starter (battery included).

The XP7500DX, with a fuel capacity of 5.3 gallons, reaches a run time of around 10 hours at 50% load utilizing gasoline (fuel consumption around 0.53 GPH). Alternatively, it can reach a run time of around 5.3 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.89 GPH) with propane.

As the XP7500DX has a relatively high THD (<12%), it is not recommended to use it to power sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel provides the upcoming 5 AC outlets:

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

In addition, it provides 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which charging of electronics like mobile phones and tablets is made convenient.

Due to the featured twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP7500DX is transfer switch ready: you may connect it to a breaker box to power your household during a power outage.

Portability

The design of the DuroMax XP7500DX is a typical, open frame, with the dimensions of L27 x W21 x H20 in, offering support and stability and enabling the possibility of raising it above ground level. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Although this generator is technically considered 'portable' (in the sense that it can be moved), its 148 lbs make it incredibly difficult to manually lift and transport. However, its challenging mobility is solved by its wheel kit and its folding handle, which will ease its displacement, once it is on the floor.

Features

Panel of the DuroMax XP7500DX

The XP7500DX's control panel

The XP7500DX's control center features a convenient meter showing you voltage, frequency and lifetime hours to aid you with the monitoring of its status and activity.

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

A built-in fuel gauge allows for a quick, easy and convenient check of the fuel level of the generator.

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

The XP7500DX 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. It’s a welcomed additional security feature, but don’t forget to always take your generator outside (opens in a new tab).

With the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), letting you start the generator quickly, the DuroMax XP7500DX also comes with several accessories, including: tool kit, propane hose and oil.

Emissions

The DuroMax XP7500DX is EPA-approved and CARB-compliant. It can therefore be sold and purchased in all 50 states, including California.

Moreover, it features a spark arrestor, which makes it suitable for use in forested areas.

Product Video

The DuroMax XP7500DX versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP7500DX compare to dual fuel generators of similar power (between 6000 and 7000 W).

  • As for its weight, the DuroMax XP7500DX weighs only 148 pounds, making it one of the lighter dual fuel generators in the 6000-7000 rated wattage category. Regarding dry weight, one of the champions in the same power range is the Sportsman GEN85KIDF, with a dry weight of only 133 lbs.
  • As its lowest possible noise is rated at 70 dBA, this generator qualifies as one of the most quiet of the products of similar type and power.
  • The XP7500DX, falls within the average autonomy range compared to dual fuel generators of a roughly same power, with a run time of around 10 hours at a 50% load and a full tank. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the Pulsar PG7750B, which is able to run for around 13 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 generator can be considered as fuel efficient, due to its low estimated fuel consumption of only 0.53 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load, within the aforementioned wattage range. If not satisfied with the afore-mentioned fuel consumption, you may wish to check out the Pulsar PG7750B. With a fuel consumption of as little as 0.51 GPH, it is one of the most efficient generators currently on the market.

Price comparison

As you can see from this interactive chart, when compared to other 6000-7000W dual fuel generators, the DuroMax XP7500DX is on the average side of the price range.

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