Description

Zoom on the DuroMax XP7500DX

In short, the DuroMax XP7500DX is a portable generator adequately designed for:

  • Food van owners who know that just a short power outage could lose them hundreds of dollars
  • Homeowners in need of an emergency backup power for their essentials
  • Professionals who want to ensure that a power failure will not prevent them from working

The subsequent sections will explore in detail its power characteristics, the diverse outlets it provides, its overall portability, and the supplementary features it offers.

Power & Run Time

The DuroMax XP7500DX in use

The DuroMax XP7500DX

The DuroMax XP7500DX, equipped with dual-fuel technology and delivering 120/240V, ensures both power and versatility. Running on gasoline, it delivers a running wattage of 6,500W and a starting wattage of 7,500W. On propane, it provides 6,175 running watts and 7,125 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 no-fuss and convenient electric starter (battery included).

Concerning its running time, the XP7500DX, featuring a 5.3 gallons fuel tank, can continuously run for up to 18 hours with a full gasoline tank (consuming fuel at approximately 0.53 gallons per hour). Alternatively, when utilizing propane, it offers up to 10 hours (on a 20 lbs tank - propane consumption around 0.47 GPH) of runtime.

As the XP7500DX exhibits a THD of less than 12%, which is relatively high, it is best avoided for powering sensitive electronic devices.

Outlets

The control panel features the following 5 AC outlets:

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

Moreover, it presents 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) providing convenient charging capabilities for mobile phones, tablets, and other electronic devices.

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

At L27 x W21 x H20 in, the traditional open frame structure of the DuroMax XP7500DX ensures stability while facilitating convenient maintenance access to components and promoting air cooling. This type of design is ideal for tough environments and heavy outdoor use.

Even though this device may be technically portable (as in movable), manipulation and transportation without special equipment can be a challenge, as it weighs 148 pounds. 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

Panel of the DuroMax XP7500DX

The XP7500DX's control panel

For convenient monitoring of its status and activity, the control panel of the XP7500DX includes a convenient meter, displaying voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours information.

In addition to this info, a light indicator serves to show you when the oil level is too low.

The generator includes a built-in fuel gauge, a quick, easy and convenient method of checking the device’s gas level.

As for its security measures, the device features an automatic low oil shut-off and an overload protection (circuit breaker), letting you 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.

While the standard documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), helpful for starting the device promptly, come with the DuroMax XP7500DX, the following accessories are also included: oil, propane hose and tool kit.

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. If weight is a key factor for your needs, the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO is noteworthy for being one of the top contenders in this power range, with a dry weight of 118 pounds.
  • Given its rated noise level of 70 dBA, this generator aligns with the average expected noise rating for devices of similar type and power. If you are concerned with noise, check out the Champion 201175, which is one of the least noisy generators in its power range, with a noise rating of just 61 dBA.
  • The XP7500DX provides around 10 hours of runtime at a 50% load on a full tank, placing it within the average autonomy range among similar dual fuel generators. If prolonged run time is essential to your needs, you could consider the DuroMax XP8500EH, which offers one of the highest autonomy among devices with similar power output, lasting around 12 hours.
  • Run time is crucial, but it heavily relies on the fuel tank's capacity. Thus, considering fuel efficiency alongside is essential. Among generators of similar power, this generator stands out with a better fuel efficiency than most, with consumption rates around 0.53 GPH (gallon per hour) at 50% load. If you're placing a high priority on fuel consumption, the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO, with a low fuel consumption rate of 0.42 GPH, could be an option to consider.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, 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.
