Description

Zoom on the DuroMax XP7500X

In summary, the DuroMax XP7500X 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 who want to be able to use the most necessary devices in their household, even during a blackout
  • 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 XP7500X in use

The DuroMax XP7500X

The DuroMax XP7500X houses a 274 cc OHV 4-stroke engine, which provides 120/240V, consumes gasoline and delivers a running wattage of 6,500W along with a peak wattage of 7,500W.

With a noise rating of 70 dBA (just as noisy as a shower), the generator features a simple traditional pull-start mechanism, but also a practical and straightforward electric starter (battery included).

Equipped with a 5.3 gallons fuel tank, the XP7500X ensures continuous operation for up to 18 hours with a full tank (fuel usage approximately 0.29 gallons per hour).

As the XP7500X 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 boasts 2 DC outlets: there's two 5V USB ports (USB-A) with which you may charge electronics, for example mobile phones or tablets, conveniently.

As it features a twist-lock L14-30R receptacle, the XP7500X 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

Measuring L27 x W21 x H20 in, the classic open frame build of the DuroMax XP7500X delivers stability and easy maintenance access to components, facilitating air circulation. The device has been designed for tough environments and demanding outdoor use.

Even at 146 lbs, the generator is categorized as 'portable,' suggesting its movability, although its weight impede its portability. Nevertheless, the restricted maneuverability is counteracted by its wheel kit (⌀8") and its folding handle, enabling easy shifting once the generator is set in place.

Features

The XP7500X's control panel

Integrated into the control center of the XP7500X are a convenient meter, offering voltage, frequency, and lifetime hours readings, facilitating the monitoring of its status and activity.

In addition to this info, a light indicator shows you if the oil level is too low.

The inclusion of a built-in fuel gauge in the generator streamlines gas level checks for quick and convenient assessments.

As far as security is concerned, the generator comes with an overload protection (circuit breaker) and an automatic low oil shut-off, providing peace of mind during use.

The XP7500X 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.

Along the basic documentation and an owner's manual (opens in a new tab), useful for starting the generator right away, the DuroMax XP7500X's package also includes these accessories: oil and tool kit.

The DuroMax XP7500X versus other generators

The following charts are provided to give you an idea of how some of the key specs of the DuroMax XP7500X compare to generators of similar power (between 6000 and 7000 W).

  • When it comes to weight, the DuroMax XP7500X tips the scales at just 146 pounds, making it one of the lighter generators in the 6000 to 7000 rated wattage range. If weight is an important consideration for you, the Pulsar PGDA70BiSCO stands out as one of the top contenders in this power category, with a dry weight of 118 pounds.
  • As this generator can emit noise as low as 70 dBA, it finds itself in the average expected noise for this kind of power. For those who are looking for a less noisy device, we suggest the Powerhorse 7500i. With just 55 dBA, it is one of the most quiet devices in this power range.
  • Thanks to an impressive running time of up to 18 hours at 25% load, the XP7500X benefits from a higher run time than many generators of a similar output. Concerning the run times, one of the several devices with a comparable output, offering the highest autonomy, is the DuroMax XP8500EH, which is able to run for up to 25 hours.
  • The run time is important, but also hugely depends on the capacity of the fuel tank and doesn't mean much if we don't talk about fuel consumption as well. Among generators of similar power, this generator stands out with one of the best fuel efficiency, with consumption rates around 0.29 GPH (gallon per hour) at 25% load.

Price comparison

As you can see from these interactive charts, when compared to other 6000-7000W generators, the DuroMax XP7500X is on the cheap side of the price range.

It can therefore be a really good buy if you're looking to acquire a budget generator.
